What ever happend to Lisa Nova?

With the introduction of every "new" Medium there are a miriad of old and new formats shaping and adapting to it, to create new classics and re-invent the past, like in the remarkable case reported today by The Guardian which we like to bring to our readers attention

we report from the guardian film blog:

LisaNova
Introducing LisaNova was a YouTube hit less than a year after it first appeared

LisaNova is dead. This, at least, is the buzz on the net. Assuming that rumours of her demise have not been exaggerated, then LisaNova is truly worth mourning. She was the creation of comedian, actor and all round trouble-maker Lisa Donovan, whose short films mercilessly satirised the lives of American teenage girls and soon became the most-watched and subscribed-to videos on YouTube.

Her first video, Introducing LisaNova, appeared 14 months ago. Less than a year later, she was the medium's biggest star. Why Donovan might choose to kill her creation off is hard to ascertain. Possibly the Hollywood roles she has so long coveted have finally come her way? More likely, though, this is just another of her always amusing, highly elaborate scams. Remember just a few months ago she faked, quite deliberately badly, the kidnapping of several of her male subscribers.

However, scam or not, one thing's for sure: we have not heard the last of Donovan or her alter ego.
