After.Life - Trailer

After a horrific car accident, Anna (Christina Ricci) wakes up to find the local funeral director Eliot Deacon (Liam Neeson) preparing her body for her funeral. Confused, terrified, and feeling still very much alive, Anna doesnt believe shes dead, despite the funeral director's reassurances that she is merely in transition to the afterlife. Eliot convinces her he has the ability to communicate with the dead and is the only one who can help her. Trapped inside the funeral home, with nobody to turn to except Eliot, Anna is forced to face her deepest fears and accept her own death. But Anna's grief-stricken boyfriend Paul (Justin Long) still can't shake the nagging suspicion that Eliot isnt what he appears to be. As the funeral nears, Paul gets closer to unlocking the disturbing truth, but it could be too late; Anna may have already begun to cross over to the other side.

NewTeeVee Misses the Mark with YouTube Spotlight

Screencap of YouTube's Spotlight Section on Saturday 3/13.

In a rare opportunity to bring exposure to made for the web shows apparently YouTube approached NewTeeVee and asked them to pick their top 10 made-for-the-web shows to feature in a spotlight section on the YouTube home page this weekend. Liz Shannon Miller takes up the task in the video: NewTeeVee's Web Series Picks for YouTube It's debatable whether these shows represent the best of what made for the web shows have to offer. It's unclear what it says that none of the ten videos selected are Streamy nominees. All the videos that were selected received an enormous bump in views.

This however can only be seen as a huge missed opportunity, of course not for the lucky 10 shows picked, but to literally(& figuratively) throw a spotlight to where other shows can be found. I don't think YouTube would have objected to directing the viewer to the Web Originals category of the Shows section. Or how about opening up the video responses so maybe a scifinal.com can submit their commercial or any other show could submit their trailer and get a little piece of the (at time of posting) 332,512 views. Most made for the web show's entire season run won't get 332,512 views and this would have been a way to share the traffic that the 10 selected videos enjoyed. This feature was well received so hopefully YouTube will take that as a sign that made for web shows should continue to be pushed.

Eye on The Children of Anchor Cove

The Children of Anchor Cove (usually just called Anchor Cove) is a website and forum about internet video series originally created as a fan-run alternative to the official lonelygirl15.com forum in September 2006. It was started by LG15 fans who migrated there when the original, official Phorum became unusable due to a lack of organization and moderation. Several of its members were instrumental in the discovery of the Creators of LG15 and Jessica Lee Rose's identity.
It was originally named "Alissa's Lonelygirl15 Discussion Forum", when created by LG15 fan Alissa Brooke on September 4, 2006. It was renamed "The Children of Anchor Cove" (or Anchor Cove for short) after the original code-name for the LG15 casting call from craigslist.com was revealed.

On its one year anniversary (Sept. 4, 2007), the site formally moved to an upgraded phpBB3 forum and website located at http://www.anchorcove.net.

Eye on John Green

John Green is an author who was an early fan of lonelygirl15 and a poster at the phorum. Green was instrumental in encouraging the creation of a new forum, which eventually resulted in the creation of The Children of Anchor Cove forum. Green has written two award-winning young adult novels, "Looking for Alaska" and "An Abundance of Katherines." His third book, "Paper Towns," hits bookshelves in October 2008.
In January 2007, John Green, along with his brother Hank, started a vlogging series entitled Brotherhood 2.0, wherein they gave up "textual communication" for the entire year and instead sent video blogs back and forth every weekday, also posted on YouTube (vlogbrothers channel). John has credited lonelygirl15 and its fans for leading to the creation of Brotherhood 2.0.
