Sam Gorski and Niko Peuringer are two special effects artists from the film industry that have transitioned to becoming personas on YouTube. The two of them co-direct and act in their channel named Corridor Digital, or simply Corridor.
They live and work with Freddie Wong and his own YouTube filming crew and are known for making really unique content of different varieties, correctly following film procedures in a relaxed, fun sort of manner. They've also appeared in many collaborations with other YouTube stars.
In addition to making their bi-weekly content on their own channel, Sam and Niko also have a monthly action series on Bammo called Sync, with a thorough behind-the-scenes making of to accompany it. They also produced the Agent Origins: Ashes live-action trailer for The Division.
You can find their main channel here. They also maintain a vlog channel called Sam and Niko with content ranging from daily stuff to behind the scenes, as well as a gaming (including video gaming, tabletop gaming, and airsoft and Nerf games) channel called Node with buddies D and Brandon Laatsch note .
Also, they have a few projects done with Steven Ogg.
- Adorkable: Both Niko and Sam come across as this.
- Body Horror: When Mario glitches out in "The Glitch".
- Crooks Are Better Armed: "Superman with a GoPro" uses this. Two crooks with rifles hold off a lone policeman with a pistol. Naturally, though, those rifles are then outmatched by Superman.
- Crossover: SlowMo Fallout Kills was a collaboration with The Slow Mo Guys.
- Face-Revealing Turn: "Googly Eyes" features one as a character named Clint is revealed to have, well...
- Gainax Ending: Awfully frequently.
- Hyper-Destructive Bouncing Ball: "Ballin' Out Of Control"
- Jump Scare: A really effective one in "The Glitch", when Mario is trapped inside of a glitch and then suddenly has his face start glitching.
- Lightning Gun: Well, they're more like Dubstep guns.
- Magical Camera: "Photoreal".
- Nightmare Face: Mario once he glitches out in "The Glitch".
- No Ending: The Glitch ends with a fake YouTube "plugin failed" screen.
- Practical Effects: The video MiniDrones Blew Up My Toys! is largely made with practical effects, meaning that they actually did blow up a few toy cars in the toy car chase.
- Real Place Background: Being based in Los Angeles, their video for Real GTA naturally uses real environments paralleling those used in the in-game Los Santos as backgrounds.
- Shout-Out: To recent video games, by the boat load, considering they provide the basis for videos. Halo, Team Fortress 2, Mass Effect 3, and Skyrim only scratch the surface.
- Taken for Granite: "Head Hunters".
