My worst fears would appear to have been realized....

I hope this proof was worth it "Slade".

I might regret posting this yet.... Clearly someone has an interest in me too now, so I'm going to have to be more discrete... Believe me... don't believe me.... I don't care. But I've been here for you Hayley ever since the beginning, and that isn't going to change now.

My life would suck without you - ihavmnyskills

Katie Wilson, Brennan Hillard, Mariesa Pace, and Maxwell Glick singing to My Life Would Suck Without You by Kelly Clarkson!

Maxwell Glick is the actor who played the role of Spencer in the lonelygirl15 web series. He grew up on Long Island and attended St. Anthony's High School. After high school, he graduated with a BA in Theater from Boston College. He then moved to Manhattan to begin his work as an actor and then later moved to Los Angeles to further pursue his career.

He has appeared in a commercials for Verizon [1], Hooters youtube.com youtube.com, and Universal Studios and has done various regional theater productions, including two national tours of musicals. Before becoming involved in Lonelygirl15, Maxwell followed the show. He first auditioned in August '06 for the character of Jonas. Although he did not get that part (it went to Jackson Davis), the Creators liked him so much that they called him back in October '06, and again in February '07, at which point he got the role of Spencer.

Maxwell gets inspiration from the excitement and challenge each new role he creates brings. Other interests of his include sports as well as pop music. He is a die-hard New York Jets and New York Yankees fan. If he weren't an actor, he would love to be a baseball player, but admits that it's probably an impossible dream. More realistically, he could see himself as a sportscaster. He enjoys playing piano and has his own top 20 songs chart on his website which he updates weekly.

Max appeared as a guest star on F.O.B. Life on August 15th, 2007, where he mentioned that his favorite LG15 episode is "The Cheese and Crackers episode." He was a member of the LG15 Fantasy Football League in 2007 which included 11 other lonelygirl15 community members.

Maxwell has expressed an interest in returning to the show. In the mean time, though, he filmed the pilot of a musical children's show called "Wiz Kids" and appeared in the DVD series Ingles Ya!, which teaches non-English speakers English.

Recently, he and lonelygirl15 co-star Becki Kregoski have been posting videos on YouTube together on the account "MaxterBexter".

"The Rhapsody" Trailer (IMDB) - MaxRhapsody

Trailer for short film, The Rhapsody, currently on festival circuit. Ridley Scott (Director of Gladiator, American Gangster, Black Hawk Down) raved about the film, "A work of sensitivity and insight. Refreshingly clever. Watch out for this guy (writer-director Cusimano) in the future - he's the real thing." Film includes small role played by Rutger Hauer

"The Rhapsody" Trailer (Music Cut)

Katherine Elizabeth Pawlak is the actress who played Emma in the lonelygirl15 web series. Aside from her work on lonelygirl15, she has played characters in a few small movies, in music videos, on TV and on stage and done work as a writer.

Before getting involved in lonelygirl15, Katherine worked as an intern for a casting director. As it happened, another girl who worked with this casting director was friends with Jessica Lee Rose and recommended the lonelygirl15 videos to Katherine. Katherine then saw an advert for the VH1 Big in '06 awards, which honored Jessica. By the time the casting notice for Emma came out, Katherine was happy to apply.

Since getting the job, Katherine has watched the Lonelygirl15 Season 1 Recap and Season 2, but has avoided watching the older videos with Bree to prevent herself from picking up too many of Bree's mannerisms. She maintains that the two are seperate characters, and she doesn't want Emma to be considered the "new Bree."
Passionate about music, Katherine once considered pursuing a songwriting career. Aside from her vocal talents, Katherine can play the piano, clarinet, and guitar. Although she plays some classical music, Katherine mostly writes her own material; gathering inspiration from Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor, and Queen. She enjoys listening to music, as well, and her current favorite songs are "Exit Music (For A Film)" by Radiohead and "Helena" by My Chemical Romance. She also listens to Spector, The Beatles, Sex Pistols, The Ramones, Portishead, Queen, Amy Winehouse, Muse, Keane, The Strokes, The White Stripes, and Coldplay. Even before finding out about "bloggers" on YouTube, Katherine used the site to find music.

In November of 2007, Katherine acted in Marcello Daciano's short film, Laura. The film screened for the first time on Tuesday, February 26th, 2008 and has been submitted to the Cannes Film Festival. Later in 2008, she had a leading role in the short film The Rhapsody.

Katherine recently won a staring role in a new horror film that will be shot in Romania. The movie, Perkins 14, is slated to be released at part of this year's After Dark Horrorfest, which features "8 Films to Die For".

Dimension signs up for social network thriller

"The teen thriller is said to resemble "Ten Little Indians," as victims are knocked off one by one, only this time with a Web 2.0 twist."


From wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_Little_Indians

Ten Little Indians is a modern children's rhyme (sometimes "soldier boys" or "teddy bears" is used instead of Indians to avoid offense). The song, supra, is usually performed to the Irish folk tune "Michael Finnegan".

The rhyme was notable for being the inspiration for Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None.


From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dimension_Films

Dimension Films is a motion picture unit currently a part of The Weinstein Company. It was formerly used as Bob Weinstein's label within Miramax Films, to produce and release genre films. The Weinstein Brothers took this label with them when they departed the Disney-owned Miramax in October 2005.

WHAT TIME IS IT?...Coverage of Glenn on BreeFM

Glenn, live on BreeFM @11pm EST, Wednesday.

Listeners in chat suggested that this weeks story should be called "Who really killed Gemma?"

Glenn talked about the different types of interactivity provided by the Internet.

Listeners asked Glenn about the "Logan post" on LG15 Today. It was long. Glenn used to write really long e-mails but LG15 broke him of that habit. A big e-mail that is good takes a long time to write. You have to craft it. Glenn had to learn how to consolidate his points. It has to flow right.

Glenn hates Criss Angel's shtick. However he was on Loveline. He was also on Penn Jillette. When he is not doing his stick he is actually smart. There is a fake Criss Angel on Twitter: http://twitter.com/criss_angel Doing a fake celeb twitter is probably the best way to entertain right now.

It used to be that protests were classy. Glenn does not like intolerant people. Classic protest signs need to make a come back. Long ago Glenn did this series called OpAphid and Glenn did all the in character stuff. Writing original interaction took a lot of time. In one of them Nikki Bower posted something about investigating OpAphid. Someone questioned "What should they do to discourage OpAphid?" Some interactions can be just a little uncertain as to "where the line is drawn". Glenn thought about a funny response. OpAphid wrote the person back suggesting a brick thru the window with a confusing message "Adam and Steve". Clearly it was a joke. It had to be clear that someone would not actually do it. At one point Nikki Bower talked about Nancy Drew and Tachyon and it made Glenn's week.

12:27 milo_went Tachyon was a tag to NB Ep #4

12:27 milo_went and mentioned by name in Ep 5

12:30 milo_went breeiswaiting was oct 12 or 13.


From LGPedia:

Nikki: So after my last video, you guys learned a little bit about me. That I love Miss Nancy Drew. Now I wrote to Tachyon and I asked her what her favorite Nancy Drew book is. And she wrote back and told me it was "The Clue in the Diary." Now let's see what we can learn from this quote: (reads from book) "When witnessing a massive fire, take careful note of shifts in the wind's direction." I think it means things are gonna change. The winds are shifting. Are they shifting in favor of Tachyon? Are they shifting in favor of Bree and Daniel? Bree's parents? Take careful note in the wind's direction. (Tests for wind direction with wet finger.) Where is it coming from? Over there? (Look of sudden realization.) I'm in a car!


Re: The Logan Article
"Ophelia" is not OpAphid's real name. Glenn did kick around the concept as an alias and Logan used to refer to hear as Ophelia but Glenn decided he did not like it.

Here is the archive of of stories from LG15 TODAY concerning Glenn's radio show on BreeFM.

Zeros and Ones

Published November 30, 2007

By Logan Rapp: See the linked file: http://loganrapp.wordpress.com/2007/11/30/zeros-and-ones/

"Zeros and Ones

The phone on the nightstand vibrates and Dee (Denise) Riley jumps awake from it, sitting up right. Her alarm clock says 3:30 am, but it's wrong – she sets her clock half an hour ahead to trick herself into getting to class on time. The lamp's too far away and she blindly reaches for it, knocking the clock over, cursing, and lets her fingers be a seismograph until she finds it.
The caller ID is restricted.
She hits the button to answer. "Hello?"
Pause. If this is a telemarketer she's going to call the Better Business Bureau.
A woman's voice pierces clearly into the call. Deep, sultry. Possibly evil. As though a cabaret singer moonlighted as a dominatrix.
"Listen closely," she says. "This is my story now."

Saturday morning. No school, no work. Dee was hung over but she had a pen and notepad nearby, conditioned by the game. A UCLA student, sometimes it would get in the way, and her entire documentary crew felt the effects. Meeting at a Starbucks in North Hollywood, it was supposed to be a production meeting. It devolved into Redearth talk.
"Sometimes it's not even a game," Dee said.
Her cinematographer, Tom, another player, asked: "What do you mean?"
"I don't know... like, a competition?" Dee says it more like a question than an answer. "Like you're trying to beat the game writers before they can write themselves out of it."
The show, Redearth88, had emerged. In 2006 the phenomenon of Lonelygirl15 hit YouTube, a young girl – pretty, with a love of physics, the nerd dream – video blogging in her bedroom with a mysterious religion. When it was revealed to be a production (falsely a "Hollywood" production) of fiction, the video series dropped from one million to half that, and still remained the most popular web series for the better part of six months, before it was claimed to have "jumped the shark" – gone so over the top as to lose suspension of disbelief.
A producer of the show left about this time to create a new one with the characters he owned from LG15, called Redearth88, in 2007. Following the trials of character Rachel, she is surrounded by unseen (occasionally heard) forces – Tachyon, Brother, and OpAPHID (the voice). The audience themselves can impact the story through decoding puzzles left behind to uncover clues that are meant to explain what happens, but usually only leave more questions.
It's the perfect way to keep people addicted.
"Ophelia called me," she said, using OpAPHID's "real" name.
It was a music mash-up. Clips of known songs mixed into one another, forcing the listener to take note of the lyrics and titles to try and decode the meaning behind what they're hearing.
The calls came out almost simultaneously. Three in the morning, but it hit at that time for all time zones in the American part of the world – a Hawaiian, Dee, a cattle rancher in Wyoming, someone from Austin, Texas, and a Sox fan who missed the call on account of the post-ACLS party in Boston, but got the voicemail. One call for each zone. Everyone answered it save for the Bostonian, and it was sheer luck that he didn't. Most listeners forgot pieces the first time around, or were hazy on the details, and only he had it recorded.
Forgetting details could be dangerous. A young Communications student, Maddison Atkins, video blogged her unexpected investigation into a mysterious messenger; it's still believed this messenger was an enemy or a member OpAPHID, or Ophelia herself (OpAPHID is short for Operation APHID, each initial in APHID corresponding to a particular mode of action; Analyze Protect Hinder Infiltrate Destroy. Yet OpAPHID is also considered a character as well as an organization).. However, the last puzzle this person sent her was never decoded, and her last video was posted by someone other than her, showing Maddison and her working partner's murder.
Dee was scarred by the video. Maddison's just a character, she kept telling herself.
"Rachel and Linc are just characters," Dee said. Rachel and her (potential) boyfriend Linc were the new on-screen investigators, and prime targets of the still not-completely-known enemy.
Tom shrugged. "Even fictional, a girl is still dead because the players weren't good enough."

The documentary was being delayed. Dee felt relieved – she wasn't feeling up for it and between class, the Game and her day job as a production assistant for NBC, something had to give and an expose about the Hollywood Homeless was not the most original topic to work on. "Dark Days pretty much made this little more than a resume-builder. No one's going to buy it," she said.
Tom and Dee were in Dee's bedroom. Tom was Dee's high school sweetheart out of Golden West in Visalia, California. He looked at the camera set up on tripod. A wide lens set up to get the full bedroom. If something good came about it, he'd put it up on YouTube for the rest of the players to get the answers without reading volumes of text.
"Let's go over the songs," Tom said.
"Heart," by Stars; "A Fifth of Beethoven," by Walter Murphy; "Young Black Teenagers," by Plead the Fifth; "Jumper," by Third Eye Blind; "The 15th," by Fischerspooner.
So what did they all mean?
"This is way too much," Dee said. She would say the same thing many times over. "I'm not joining the NSA."
"Yeah, but you could read my e-mail anytime you want," Tom was browsing through basic cryptography pages.
Numbers were clearly important. Third Eye Blind – three. "The 15th," - fifteen. Where did Heart fit in? Or was it Stars that they had to look at? Five, five, three, fifteen. That adds up to twenty-eight. Twenty-eight what? Twenty-eight girls like Rachel (it had been rumored she had something special in her blood)? Twenty-eight days until she would be murdered like Maddison? Linc enjoyed his alcohol – was he going into rehab for the typical twenty-eight days (as made popular by Sandra Bullock)?
The discussion lasted a couple of hours. Dee went on IRC chat and they were just as clueless. One of the more well-known decoders noted: It's going to be something staring at us in the face.

It had been two days since the mash-up. People were stumped. Neither Linc nor Rachel had posted a video since. The audience had been conditioned to fear long periods of silence. They never end happily.
"I'm worried," Tom said. "Linc's getting phone calls again."
Linc was a former member of OpAPHID, leaving on personal grounds and turning against his former employer. After Maddison's death, he disappeared for months, only to return out of money, all of which had been blown on alcohol and receiving phone calls from an unknown messenger. It was the same set up as Maddison, and Linc knew it. "I don't trust it," he said in a video. "I don't trust it at all."
A new video had surfaced – Linc was getting a phone call of the same music mash-up. He looked haggard, paranoid, possibly drunk. Rachel was partially oblivious to the danger. Linc didn't want to worry her yet, so he worried for both of them, and it was taking its toll on his appearance. But he noted he heard something at the beginning. The Bostonian had neglected to mention it – after twelve listen-throughs, he had accidentally cut out in his posted recording the start of the mashup, thinking it a glitch.
It was audio. Reversed audio.
A new version of the voicemail was uploaded to a player's personal site within minutes – and indeed, there it was. A garbled piece of audio, but clearly a voice whispering some evil Helter Skelter language.
"Fire up Audacity," Dee said.
Audacity is an open source audio editor tool. Constantly in development, but this was a basic feature – reversing audio. Re-reversing it, the audio came in nice and clear, a computerized whisper: Piece me together.
"Huh," Dee said. "I'm still..."
Tom shook his head. "Staring us in the face. Dude was right. And we're going to find out what it is way too late."
They walked away from the computer and went to lunch. They talked about the city, what they were going to do when they graduated, what their friends were going to do when they graduated. Anything other than the code that could spell life or death for characters that they have yet again become attached to. It was a vicious cycle. Actors get tired, or they get discovered, and the character has to go. The level of interaction between character and audience is far more intimate than Jack Bauer has with his. Characters will pop up in IRC, talk about the story that is their reality, and about the ups and downs of their audience's reality. For some characters, the producers were bored and posed as the characters. For some – people suspect Linc, as he was originally a one-man show before incorporating into Redearth – the character and the actor are one and the same.
Dee's cell phone played Justin Timberlake. She looked at the number, not recognizing it. Her eyes widened. "Shit." She answered. A brief moment, a timid hello?, and she relaxed.
"It's Jenni." she said. Jenni was another player, a coordinator. Dealing with crowds on the Internet was like herding cats blindfolded and over the phone.
And then she stopped. A quick goodbye, grabbing her keys. "New video. Time to go."
Dee had been living in the greater Los Angeles area for three years, and the rural driver in her from growing up in what she calls the "ass end" of the San Joaquin Valley somehow compliments the "fuck you" driving style of SoCal. She flowed from lane-to-lane, not so much bouncing through traffic but gliding. The car never jerked, no sudden twists, but even with an obscene number of airbags on his side Tom checked his seatbelt twice to be certain throughout the drive.
The typical week of video releases was one video a day, four or five videos a week. Occasionally a second video would be posted the same day, but usually the characters would make it clear one was on the way, or at least one could be on the way. No mention of a follow-up had been made. The video was coming in unannounced.
Tom had left the computer on in Dee's bedroom, connected to the chat room. "IRC [Internet Relay Chat]'s going nuts. I'm seeing a lot of exclamation points."
Dee took out her laptop. She sat on her bed. "What are they saying?"
"They're writing something, but it's certainly not my English. That's why I don't go into the chat room."
The video came on Dee's laptop. Not much more than twenty seconds long. The YouTube account was known as "warpylol," and Dee was already cursing before the video came on. Highly stylized, the video was the first person camera of a car speeding up to catch a bus. The camera pivots right, techno music underneath slowing down. Linc and Rachel are on the bus, Rachel holding her bag and looking behind her, Linc keeping himself in the aisle, between anyone else and Rachel, looking ahead. The video slowed and paused on them. Then the image shook, and dissolved into white.
Just before the video of Maddison's murder was released, the account had a video posted of a first-person view of someone walking up to Maddison's apartment. A similar effect – dissolve into white, as though the video were made of film, and the film just melted apart.

Third Eye Blind – not three, but third, or one-third. Plead the Fifth – one fifth. And so on. Until "Heart." With conversion, twelve fifteenths from the rest of the puzzle. Dee hadn't solved any of it. Tom was on the laptop – a Macbook Pro, the extra-wide seventeen inch screen. Wide enough to have his script on the right and IRC on the left.
Dee gave up – another two days had passed – she went back to the documentary. She didn't want to think about it. Scenes needed to be pre-edited anyway and that only requires the addition and subtraction of time, no countdown to an unknown time, no lives hanging in the balance (except maybe that wino on Magnolia).
"They think they have it," Tom said.
"I don't want to know."
Tom picked the laptop up and set it on the desk in front of Dee. "Captain Planet."
Heart. The fifth element. One fifth is three fifteenths. Piece me together. Fifteen fifteenths. Fifteen over fifteen.
The chat room text was streaming like movie credits.
"They just figured it out. They don't know what it means."
"Well, fifteen over fifteen is one," Dee said.
It was also a YouTube account. Tom saw it in the chat room, the horrible English, shorthand – 15over15. The video – a CG-generated dank room, a single light bulb hanging from it, on a chain. The bulb swings slightly from side to side. A string of numbers [insert numbers] pass through at the bottom, like a Fox News crawl.
"Coordinates," Tom said. He'd been waiting for this. He'd just downloaded a new iPhone application for navigation.
Dee started to bring up Google Earth on her computer.
"Don't you dare. I blew four hundred on this fucker," he said. Dee put her computer into sleep mode. Tom put the numbers in the iPhone. "It's right in Hollywood. La Cienega Park."
An old drop point – in 2006, during Lonelygirl15's peak, the now-Redearth character Tachyon had left a puzzle for players at the pay phones in La Cienega Park. Was she behind this? The audience widely considered her an ally. Now even that was in question.
Dee called Jenni. At every point in the game where players go to real-world locations, an impromptu team is created. Partially for safety, partially to make sure nothing is missed, and everyone wants to feel like a secret agent. Jenni was typically the Operator – the person who kept the Agents on the phone, reporting their progress to the rest of the group on IRC. Dee and Tom were closest. They went to the 2006 drop. This time Dee had a Bluetooth headset. She almost wrecked her car twice previously.
Directions said they were twenty minutes away. "We'll be there in ten," Dee said.
The drive took twenty minutes. Only metered parking was available. Tom said to go ahead and look around. Children had set up a lemonade stand along the sidewalk. La Cienaga is in the deep of Beverly Hills, point-blank with high rises and million dollar homes. Short of Las Vegas, it's one of the most highly-surveilled regions on Earth. As such, parents were at an odd distance from their children, as though they'd never seen Chris Hansen before. Dee went immediately to the pay phones, thinking the circle would be completed exactly. Tom stayed in the car even after paying the meter.
The phone almost immediately rang. She jumped, even expecting it, and caught the phone on the second ring. "Hello?"
"Rachel's missing." The voice was tense, monotone.
"Linc?" Dee turned toward the car. "Where are you?"
"Look West."
She did so. Through the twisting slide of the playground next to her she saw him – hair longer, unkempt, unshaven, but it was Linc. "Hi, Linc."
"I can't be online right now," he said. "And I can't trust too many people online."
"Why not?"
Linc shook his head. "You think all the players are just on our team? Why do you think I used Op's voice on the mashup? I didn't think the good guys would get here so fast."
"Are you saying there's another faction?"
"I'm saying not all the people decoding alongside you are boy scouts." Linc looked around, and behind him, to the four-lane street with a tennis club on the opposite side. "See that Towncar?"
The Lincoln, black, had tinted windows in the back, and a lone man, with a newspaper, sat in the driver's seat. "Yeah?" Dee said.
"Been following me. I need you to distract it."
"Ask him for some change. Knock on the passenger window, put yourself in his line of sight. I don't know, something."
Dee shook her head. She looked back to Tom. "I don't know."
"Just do it. I'm walking toward you, hang up and ignore me." Dee looked back to Linc. He was already walking in her direction.
Dee hung up the phone. She could see Tom get out of the car, but shook her head – stay there – and he did. Linc continued to a fixed point, to the pay phones themselves, and she stepped around the sandbox of the playground. Linc seemed to ignore the children, cutting directly across.
"If this doesn't work, find her," Linc said. His eyes were pointed away from her but he was definitely talking to her. With Rachel missing, there was no one else.

Two days later and the pair was back on track with the documentary. Dee didn't want to think about what happened, and Tom filled everyone in over IRC.
The video came in from Linc yesterday. "If you're getting this and I'm not standing next to you with a beer in my hand, then I haven't checked into my system and it's going through its automatic upload." "

He said he was in the middle of backburning at Mirboo North when he saw the stricken koala. "I could see she had sore feet and was in trouble, so I pulled over the fire truck. She just plonked herself down, as if to say 'I'm beat'," he said.

"I offered her a drink and she drank three bottles.

"The most amazing part was when she grabbed my hand. I will never forget that."

Mr Tree and his brigade then received an emergency call-out to save a house, but minutes later Sam was picked up by wildlife carers.

She is one of 22 koalas, 14 ringtail possums, several wallabies and eastern grey kangaroos that have been handed into Gippsland carers.

Producers Lining Up Funds First

Gina, because I miss seeing herThe slumping economy is forcing the new-media business to grow up fast. New-media producers and creators at last week’s NATPE conference are not going to make shows unless they secure the funding first.

The financial crisis and the consumer shift in viewing behavior to the Web, DVRs and alternate devices has intensified the pressure on both old and new Hollywood creators to hammer out fresh business models. That means creators are less apt to produce shows on spec in the hope the advertisers will follow.

Brands need to get on board first, said Jordan Levin, the CEO of television and new-media production shop Generate.

His firm produces and distributes the Web show “Pink: The Series,” which has been popular but doesn’t have an advertiser attached. Though Generate will look to make some money on the back end with a DVD deal for “Pink,” Mr. Levin said he’s going to stay away from putting up money for shows if advertisers aren’t on board from the get-go, he said.

Generate inked a deal last week to develop scripted TV shows for 20th Century Fox Television. That’s more akin to a traditional TV deal, and it also means Generate will be paid upfront.

The creators of the iconic “LonelyGirl15” series are striking similar deals these days, said Greg Goodfried, one of the founders of EQAL, the digital studio behind that Web hit.

Mr. Goodfried and partner Miles Beckett self-financed “LonelyGirl15” and own the intellectual property rights. That business model is less appealing in a recession, which is one of the reasons EQAL now has a production and development deal with CBS to create shows for the Web, such as “Harper’s Globe,” a companion Web program for CBS’ midseason replacement series “Harper’s Island.”

To land advertisers in advance of production, new-media producers and distributors are working together more to present the right mix of content and audience reach to potential advertisers, said Keith Richman, CEO of Break Media, an online video property targeting young men. “This year it’s all about making money, and people aren’t taking bets on things that won’t sell and won’t attract advertisers,” he said.

Advertisers are cautious, too. “We’re not sure if the Web is scalable. It’s very segmented,” said Donna Speciale, president of investment and activation at MediaVest Worldwide. But she also believes that “niche needs to be the new mass.”

“We have to test online and experiment, and clients are willing to do it,” she said. “They’re more particular this year, but agencies have to keep pushing and it’s not going to be easy.

Roma - È cominciata la terza stagione di Lonelygirl15, la prima e ancora la più innovativa (per quanto riguarda la struttura distributiva) tra le serie per la rete. Si chiama LG15: The Misfits e allarga ancora di più l'idea da sempre alla base del mondo della produzione per la rete, cioè che la distanza tra chi fa e chi guarda è sempre più ridotta.

Who Really Killed "Maddison Atkins"?

From Anchor Cove: http://forum.anchorcove.net/viewtopic.php?p=13169#p13169

Re: TSIY ... not so fast!!! or LG15:The Misunderstandings
by jeromy on Mon Feb 09, 2009 1:36 pm

Back in the day, and now it's been almost 2 years, but back in the day, I actually spoke with the Cs on the phone about acquiring Madison Atkins. It was potentially my dream come true.

I've never spoken about it publicly because it wasn't relevant and at the time I kinda hoped that the guys would change their mind about their "offer." Just recently I found the The Show is Yours bit, and I was very discouraged how it all turned out. Discouraged, but not surprised.

It turned out that the C's were interested in acquiring Maddison Atkins. However, the terms they offered included no pay and creative control. Kinda lame. Even at the the time I expressed that my work could be available to them at a price. I thought Maddison was worth at least something. Ultimately, they passed on Maddison.....or I passed on the offer, and honestly, that's normal in the biz. It even made sense considering the context.

I'm writing this to reinforce the notion that the Cs have no intention to give anyone the "break they didn't have".... in my opinion. (BTW their "break" did involve generosity of their family and a very hefty investor). My advice to content creators.... keep making work, but don't trust the Cs. Eventually, some sort of viable business plan will be created for the web. Hang in there.

But all this is just my opinion. People do change. The C's may still become creative benefactors instead of self-declared father figures. To me it doesn't look like they have, but I'm wrong all the time. Someone else might describe it differently, but I don't think they have anyone's interest at heart but their own. Tread with extreme caution.

I really miss making content for this community. One day when I get the "non-break" the C's didn't have, I'll be back.

Jeromy Barber said...
I agree with BK and Renegade. The headline is misleading.

My story (which cannot be verified... true), relates because it addresses the hope that some content creators have. The hope that the Cs will love them and financially support their shows.

I think Renegade is right that the situations are very different (contest versus business deal), but I also believe them to be linked because before there was the official contest of TSIY, there was an unspoken contest (displayed by the adoption of OpAphid), and for a couple of weeks in April 2007, I won the unspoken contest. And like Logan and Jenni, hoped to score a small reward to continue making content.

So, that's how I see it relating.

And Yes. The Glenn story is MUCH more interesting than mine. Maybe one day, he'll write a book.... or tell it in a mash-up.

Episode 1 - A New Life - OzGirlTV

Sadie leaves the country to stay with her cousin, Megan in the big city of Melbourne.


From Sadie's Bebo blog:

Well... I did it!! After months of procrastinating and deciding I finally had the guts to move! It was hard saying goodbye to Lisa and my Dad and bros but honestly now that I'm in the city.. it feels SSSOOO good!!

I am literally over the moon! This is everything I ever dreamed of when I was a child! Everything is so amazing here. The people, the cars, the trams (haha I've never been on one but I'm worried I'll fall down... I'm such a klutz). There's a real buzz and I love it!

So I'm staying at Megan's place. She's been so nice about taking me in. Obviously I'll have to pay rent soon but I'll find a job later. Hopefully I can get something in photography. She said she has some plans for me!! If she's still the same, she's pretty crazy! So I wonder what she has in store.

It should be fun moving in with her! We can have slumber parties...hahaha remember, like when we were kids? It'll be great! She's such a fun girl.

Anyway that's all for now! I have to unpack!! :P


ps. On a side note... luckily where my orchard is we weren't affected by the bush fires. It's really terrible what is happening and my thoughts are with all the families who have lost their houses, or even worse their loved ones. :(
