YouTube Tuesday: w00tstock 7.0!

Every July since 2012, UAT Digital Video Program Champion Paul DeNigris has taken a road trip to San Diego with some of his students to film an event called w00tstock, a “geek cabaret show” organized by comedy music duo Paul and StormStar Trek: The Next Generation alum Wil Wheaton, and MythBuster Adam Savage. This year’s show took place on July 9 and featured appearances by many special guests such as Alton Brown (of Food Network’s Good Eats) and fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicle).

Check out the complete w00tstock 7.0 playlist but be warned! These geeks have foul mouths and this show is definitely NSFW (Not safe for work)!

As usual, our w00tstock coverage was produced in partnership with Alpha Geek Media, a podcasting hub for geek-related content. The students who joined Prof. DeNigris on this year’s trip were Digital Video majors Brandon Scott and Jordan Wippell. Take a peek behind the scenes of the trip and the show with this playlist, The Road to w00tstock.

Past w00tstock shows can be found on our mega w00tstock playlist, or check out this highlights reel from w00tstock 4.0, 5.0, and 6.0 (including an appearance by none other than George R.R. Martin).
