Eye on Lesser Known Web Series Part II

Soul fire Rising: Soul fire Rising is a horror series that deals with the battle between Angels, which are called wingers in the series, and demons, which are called, well, demons. The winger with the Angelic name, Gabriel, summons the demon Lilith and offers her the soul of the now mortal Eve if she can find her and bring her to him.

Soul fire Rising has a very cinematic feel, beautifully filmed, with high production values and a talented cast. Fans of the CW series Supernatural will immediately identify with the series themes and concepts. Currently, there are four episodes, which appear to be released sporadically.

The Ennead: For centuries two sides have been locked in conflict. In order to gain the advantage each side is seeking the Ennead, a group of nine immortals who have shaped human destiny since the beginning of time, but disappeared long ago. Unfortunately, time is running out as it was prophesied that a comet would herald the apocalypse, and the comet has arrived. With the comet's arrival, seemingly, ordinary humans are developing extraordinary abilities. Could these individuals be the Ennead returned to save humanity?

The Ennead launched earlier this year with a fair amount of attention, before falling into the abyss of web series obscurity. Still the series has a loyal following and new episodes are released every Thursday. Eighteen episodes have already aired with a planned twenty-two to twenty-six in the first season.

Gold: Gold is a scripted series about the competitive, cut-throat world of professional table-top role-playing. The series follows the perennial second place American team as they prepare to do 'battle' against the mighty British team as-well-as declining interest in table-top role-playing.

Gold has received a fair amount of attention while simultaneously flying beneath most people's radar, partly due to the infrequent release schedule. Debuting in November 2008, only six episodes have been released averaging one a month so far. Nevertheless, the series has a loyal following and was recently selected to take part in the New York Television Festival.

Tech Know: Billing itself as the "world's awesomest gadget review show," its right there in the theme song, Tech Know, nevertheless, is less about gadget review, although they do manage a healthy dose of product placement, and more about the behind the scenes shenanigans of the show's sleazy executive, and the show's hosts and the evil arc-nemesis who seeks to destroy them.

Tech Know falls outside the lines of a traditional web series; however, it does have a narrative structure and story arc, plus the individual episodes can be hilarious. Also, there are boobs. The series is produced by Barely Digital, the folks that brought the world Obama girl. Also, check out the various musical and parody videos on the company's YouTube page.

Merrime.com: Merrime.com, the '.com' is part of the show's name, centers on Merri, a Quarterlife-inspired, Beverly Hills trust-fund girl who is looking for love online, because, apparently, wealthy, attractive twenty year olds can only find a suitable date on the Internet. Each week Merri goes on a date with a different loser, or the occasional actor from Beverly Hills 90210 and wackiness ensues.

Of all the series highlighted, Merrime.com has received the most mainstream attention. It topped TV Guide's web hot list and won the best comedy award at the Independent Television Festival last week in Los Angels. The show also has an exclusive distribution deal with The Frisky, a female-oriented social networking site. The show is targeted at women in there late twenties and thirties and contains adult situations, which may not be suitable for children or guys who do not wish to listen to wealthy, whiny women whimper about how hard their lives can be.

LG15 phpBB forum is back!

"Hey Everyone,

I received several emails from members of the LG15 community asking that we “turn on posting” in the old phpBB lonelygirl15 forum. Thanks for emailing, I didn’t know that this was something you wanted and I appreciate your feedback. It’s actually good timing because we have some exciting announcements about LG15 coming very soon. It’s been a long and bumpy road for all of us, but I hope that you can open up your hearts and give LG15 a chance to win you back. I miss the old days just like you and I hope this community can flourish again.

Cutting to the chase, we are happy to turn on the phpBB forum for you guys. We just changed the settings so you should be able to login and post right now. Unfortunately, we’re getting SQL errors from new user registration, so we can’t turn that feature on. The old forum is on our old servers and we don’t have the resources to support those servers or code. This was why we turned the forum off in the first place, but I understand your desire to continue using it and we’re happy to provide the functionality that is currently available.

I also want you to know that I appreciate your concerns and I have no problem admitting my mistakes. Inside the company we encourage each other to talk openly about our mistakes so that we can analyze them, learn from them, and do a better job the second time around. So, I’m happy to admit to my mistakes publicly. Here you go:

We shouldn’t have launched such an immature software product on LG15.com unless we had the resources to add features and upgrade it. Unfortunately we immediately had to work on Harper’s and that work didn’t transfer back to LG15 “automatically” like I wanted it to. I’m sorry.
We shouldn’t have shut down the phpBB forum considering that the new software wasn’t up to par. I’m sorry.
We should be better about communicating with you guys, our first and most loyal fans. Again, I’m sorry.
Here is our plan for LG15 going forward. It’s not perfect, but it’s the best we can do given our resources. I hope these actions help move us towards mending this broken community.

We will be re-launching LG15.com on the newest version of our servers and software within the next couple months. It will feature new forums, profile pages, and publishing just like you’ve experienced on Harper’s Globe and Level 26. It will continue to be upgraded along with all of our other websites. Unfortunately because of changes to the underlying database structure we will NOT be able to port user data from the current LG15 site. This means that comments on “LG15: The Resistance” and “LG15: The Last,” discussion threads in the new Resistance/Last forums, and photos/board posts on profile pages WILL NOT be integrated seamlessly on the new site. You WILL be able to login to the new site with your same email/password just like you can across all EQAL sites, and create new profile pages and connect your YouTube, Twitter, and FB accounts. This was not an easy decision. However, we felt that it was better to get a new site up rather than continue “indefinitely” on the old software.
When we launch the new site, we’ll preserve the current LG15 site in an “archived” state, and at some point in the future we will integrate it into the new site. This includes the “lonelygirl15,” “KateModern,” “LG15: The Resistance,” and “LG15: The Last” comments/profiles/forums/etc. For the sake of clarity, ALL LG15 CONTENT that is currently online will stay online and remain visible, this includes the newly reopened phpBB forum.
Greg and I are going to make a concerted effort to be better about communicating with you guys about what we’re doing with LG15. We aren’t perfect and sometimes we get incredibly busy with everything that we are doing with EQAL, but we understand the need for better communication and will do a better job.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, we have some exciting announcements about the LG15 Universe coming out really soon. I know that the lonelygirl15 community is what got us our start and I intend on helping it to grow over time. It will take some time, and I know it’s been a rocky path, but hopefully you can give us a chance. Trust me, the past few years have not been easy for us either. It’s difficult because we can’t always tell you what’s going on internally, but we have been working like maniacs over the past few years to help turn this hobby into an industry so that all independent content creators like ourselves will benefit.

Thanks.

Thanks guys, appreciate the positive comments and the feedback. trainer101, the phpBB forum will stay up after the new site is up. QtheC, I agree with your thoughts, we are planning on continuing original content production in some capacity, just not sure exactly what/when but stay on the lookout. cg, I am not sure where Phorum 1.0 is at this point. I think that the data was on old servers that we no longer use, and it might be gone forever (which is a real shame if that’s the case, I know). At some point we’ll look for it and see.

Security Footage from the police (Maddison Atkins)


Someone gave us this file. We can't say who, but we think it's pretty obvious. Apparently, this guy just walked into the place where they were holding 3 of the girls and just walked out with them... No questions from officers, agents or anything. The same thing happened at the Hospital too. Crazy

The Lovers and Tree of Life

Eye on Lesser Known Web Series Part I

I <3 Vampires: I<3 Vampires is a series that has less to do with actual vampires and more to do with obsessive fan girls. The series follows Corbin, the self-described number one fan of the hit book series Confessions of a High School Vampire who runs a website Iheartvampires.net (an actual site) with her more obsessed sidekick Luci. Prior to the release of the final novel in the series, Corbin receives a mysterious email containing the first 5 chapters of the book, which she decides to publish online, resulting in the book's author, Siona McCabre, declaring that she will never publish the book. Corbin and Luci set out to discover the source of the leak and to convince their favorite author to publish the book.

Also, the series features Take 180's signature fan interaction, which dictates the character's moves and influences the plot. Each week there are challenges that play directly into the storyline and opportunity for fans to win prizes. Also, since its Take 180, all episodes are 3 minutes or less so catching up with the series will not take long.

Dirty Bomb Diaries: Dirty Bomb Diaries is the story of Misty, an attractive young girl who recently moved into a new apartment in the city. Shortly thereafter a dirty bomb explodes, crippling the city and leaving the survivors scampering to claim the dwindling resources. Misty continues to vlog throughout the ordeal, at first to record what has happened, but as the situation becomes more desperate it becomes the means of maintaining her sanity.

Described as lonelygirl meets an A-bomb, Dirty Bomb Diaries is a high concept drama made on a shoestring budget; the series reportedly cost only $600 to produce. The first season consisted of 16, 4 minute or less episodes and concluded in July 2008. A second season was planned; however, it has yet to materialize.

Safety Geeks: SVI: The green screen comedy Safety Geeks can be described as Thunderbirds meets Larry from OSHA by way of CSI. The series centers around a crack team of independently financed and often unwanted safety experts who spring into action after an accident often offering little if any actual assistance. The series stars memorable actress Brittney Powell in a bust out role as a former stripper turned psychologist. As one can imagine the series contains adult situations and may not be suitable for children or viewing at work.

Spellfury: Spellfury is a special effects laden fantasy series with a healthy dose of camp. The series centers on a blond elf who carries a lightsaber inspired sword who battles various CG monsters. Given the number of effects shots and its limited budget, Spellfury is a very ambitious project. Also, while there are many series that deal with fantasy role-playing, The Guild, for instance, Spellfury is one of only a couple of series that incorporate fantasy elements. The individual episodes are very short, running in most cases under two minutes and new episodes are released infrequently, usually a month or so apart.

Four if by Space: Four if by Space is a comedy farce about twin brothers, Evan and Quentin, who each befriend an alien. Quentin befriends Guiradon who is on the run from his own people and the two set off on a cross country road trip, while the General and Evan live a comfortable existence in New York as the General plots an alien invasion. There are 15 episodes so far of this series, which is aimed at an adult audience and is not suitable for children, parents, pets, or the Amish.


ETA: Part II is coming Friday, there were just too many series for one post. Also, join in the discussion at Anchor Cove, the one stop shop for all your web series needs.

The good news is that the market grew by 125 percent last year, but it will have to sustain 40 percent growth year over year to achieve the report’s projections of tripling its total share and doubling its online share by 2013, and then still be a bit player in the larger market.

“The website is incredibly important,” Zuiker said. “It is not just a glorified home page to unlock bridges. That’s the starting point. What’s important about the website is that you can socially connect and make profile pages, upload other content that people can witness.

LG15: The Last chat

Xavier says he doesn't really like any of Order, HoO or Resistance, Sibylla decided they'd stay with the Order, and they're mainly there because the Elder is their adoptive mother.

This post is designed to give a quick overview of the things the Weave Twins said last night; the quotes are thus taking out of context and re-ordered for heightened understanding.

On why they're in chat:
<SibyllaWeave> Because I wanted you to all know that something is coming

On why they serve the Order:
<XavierWeave> We serve because Sibylla wants to
<XavierWeave> I will tell you why I serve the order... if that's appropriate?
<XavierWeave> I don’t really like the Order, Hymn of One or those in the resistance; rather I see myslf and my sister as tools that can achieve multiple outcomes being either good or bad.
<XavierWeave> the pay is better
<XavierWeave> No. Sibylla has chosen for now. Plus we owe the Elder our lives

On being Trait Positive:
<XavierWeave> no we are not trait positive

On Jonas/pilot:
<SibyllaWeave> No I was not beating up Jonas

On the Elder:
<SibyllaWeave> Hera
<SibyllaWeave> No, Hera adopted us. We would never turn on her
<SibyllaWeave> Hera is the only Elder in Australia

On Mitch:
<XavierWeave> Do NOT mention Mitchell again!
<SibyllaWeave> Xavier did not want to you to mention Mitch for my benefit
<SibyllaWeave> I do not take to traitors well
<SibyllaWeave> You will also find out what happend to Mitch

On the girls' fate:
<XavierWeave> I'm looking forward to Jayde's ceremony
<SibyllaWeave> hahaha Toni, Leigh dead

Their location:
<SibyllaWeave> still in Sydney.

On the idea of Xavier betraying Sib:
<SibyllaWeave> Xavier would never do that
<SibyllaWeave> I think very highly of my brother. He knows he can leave at anytime
<XavierWeave> But I never would
<XavierWeave> I love my sister. We would never betray one another

On what they did before The Last:
<XavierWeave> I was training previously renegade
<SibyllaWeave> I was in training Renegade
<XavierWeave> We are not newbies
<XavierWeave> but simply Training...is where we test the duritability of new Order members

On theories and time frames:
<SibyllaWeave> I would love to see some of your theories.
<SibyllaWeave> please feel free to post a video... You have until Friday
<XavierWeave> that's being specific Sibylla
<SibyllaWeave> That's the only thing they can handle
<SibyllaWeave> simple minded
<SibyllaWeave> just add it as a response to the last video that Xavier posted

On cover identities:
<XavierWeave> Yes we have cover identites
<XavierWeave> No I don't pose as Damien all the time
<XavierWeave> he's boring
As for whether they consider their covers or their evil selves real:
<SibyllaWeave> Sibylla is my true self

On names and people:
<XavierWeave> Sibylla was the name of a Queen
<SibyllaWeave> that is who I am named after
<FH14> Sibylla of Jerusalem?
<SibyllaWeave> indeed Fh14

<XavierWeave> My middle name is Guy. Also related to Sibylla
<FH14> Guy of Lusignan?
<XavierWeave> Yes Fh14
<Haures> If i remember..Guy de Lusignon was some templar in Jerusalem...

<SibyllaWeave> Frances is also related to Xavier

Maddison Atkins ARG full reboot.

Posted by Jeromy

Hey TOSG.

I don't want anybody confused about whether this is a full reboot or partial...

It is a full reboot. There are definite themes and ideas used from the former story, but this story is it's own thing. Maddison 1.0 has no bearing on Maddison 2.0
