May 17, 2012 by Screenmag
Big Dog Eat Child, a comedy company formed by eight close friends from Chicago's south side is now a featured channel of the Machinima Network. The largest entertainment channel on YouTube boasting over 109 million subscribers, 4,500 channels and 27.2 billion views.
Big Dog Eat Child is one of 10 featured channels picked by Machinima. This puts the Alsip based comedy company in the same spotlight with other wildly successfuly comedy channels such as RoosterTeeth (creators of Red Vs. Blue), Action Figure Therapy and Nerdist.
The network primarily serves entertainment for gamers who are hungry for video game trailers, game play walkthroughs and original comedy webseries. They recruited Big Dog Eat Child as part of their strategy to expand their entertainment offerings for their massively growing audience.
Big Dog Eat Child will leverage this development to aggressively expand their audience as well as to produce more webseries this summer. They also signed on to produce and pitch content for Machinima that centers on video games and pop culture. The comedy company which is made from Pedro Castro, Ramiro Castro Jr., Brian Fox, Jim Gainer, Danny O'Dwyer, Jason Nisavic, Brian Skaj and Matt Witkus has created several successful webseries in the last three years. These series include Jones Big Ass Truck Rental and Storage, Twenty Something Ninja Turtles and several popular web videos such as their music video "What Up Little Kid".
They are also developing a television series for their seminal character Toby Jones and a faux-reality show featuring company members. Company members Pedro Castro and Ramiro Castro Jr. are now based in Los Angeles.
