Known Faces Are Displacing the Amateurs in Online Videos

"To help counter that, marketers say they seek qualities in the stars they select beyond just being famous for being famous."

Under proposed legislation, White House could be given an Internet “kill switch”

Known as the “Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act”, the legislation would cause all US-based Internet service providers to “immediately comply with any emergency measure or action developed”.

Award Winning Web TV Series "Safety Geeks" Releases & Demo's 1st 3D Action Comedy Series


At a live press conference held in Santa Monica Wednesday June 16th attended by Mingle Media TV, Lumen Actus LLC, demonstrated the first 3D live action comedy web series, "Safety Geeks: 3D" enhancing the viewer experience on 3D polarized computers, televisions, and Blu-ray Disc products. DDD of Santa Monica will be distributing the series via on-demand downloads from their website, http://www.Yabazam.com.

The award winning "Safety Geeks" web series has received accolades and nominations for their creative content and special effects from the Streamy's, LA Web Series Festival, Stay Tuned TV and more. Beeler and Konkle use technology in the service of comedy instead of action or science fiction, which is why they decided to take "Safety Geeks" season one and make it into 3D. It's important to point out that the 3D process employed in "Safety Geeks: 3D" is not the traditional red and blue glasses technique dating back to the 1950's, but instead is the cutting edge, polarized stereoscopic processing treatment similar to that used in a certain "wildly successful sci-fi feature film (AKA Avatar)."

Conspiracy For Good Presents: Soup Trolly


Conspiracy For Good Presents: Soup Trolleys

Through the Conspiracy For Good "List," some students at Royal College of Art hooked up with St. Vincent De Paul to find it's most useful single volunteer: Meet Product Designer Fredrik Paulsson who designed and constructed three new state of the art trolleys that will revolutionise the way SVP conduct their weekly soup runs!

The St Vincent de Paul Society is an international voluntary organization dedicated to tackling poverty and the disadvantaged by providing direct practical assistance to anyone in need. Active in England & Wales since 1844, today the organisation continues to address social and material need in all its many forms.

In London, St Vincent De Paul organise weekly soup and clothing runs for the homeless. Trollies are used to deliver food, essentials and weekly medical check-ups to people living on the streets. The organisation is well known amongst the homeless community who congregate in Mayfair on the same time every week to meet the regular volunteers.

Stay tuned to watch more episodes highlighting the production of the trollies. To get involved with this effort or join a cause, please visit "the list" section above.

Web Series so 1996

When you mention the word web series to people and they look at you cross-eyed, you might want to ask them where they have been the last 10+ years (at the very least).

Web series, short form content delivered to the viewer via the web, Party Girl Plus One [www.partygirlplusone.com] is one of many example, has been around since 1996 according to my pal Brett Love’s Webisode Clack: Grape Jam and the LA Webfest. In Brett’s article, he states “According to a December ‘96 issue of Websight magazine…the article inside is titled “Honey, what’s on the web tonight?” Reading through it, it’s amazing how familiar it all sounds. It’s talking about the merger of the web and television, and what that means for how we will watch things in the future. Really, if you omit a couple of the obviously dated references (IRC!, Real Audio), much of the article is still very relevant today.”

And to take it one step further, the girl featured in the 1996 article is Brittney Powell, starring in Safety Geeks: SVI, a current web series created by another pal of mine Tom Konkle and his partner David Beeler. Safety Geeks: SVI also received a Visual Effects Nomination at this years Streamy Awards. Congrats Tom and David!

So web series have been around for almost 15 years and they are only growing by the number. Where do we go from here? Word around town is mobile devices. Short form content delivered to your cell phone. Well that’s nothing new, we get the news, movies and TV shows on our cell phones already. I’m talking “Mobi-Sodes”. Short form episodic shows created specifically for the cell phone with soft cell, uh I mean ’sell’, product placement embedded in the content tied to your GPS, so advertisers can target your all mighty dollar at any time.

Pretty cool, pretty creepy, pretty 2010.

The @IAWTV Meetings: Should heads roll?



by mm

The next round of IAWTV meetings will take place on June 15 in NYC and June 17 in Los Angeles. We do not know much of what has been discussed on the "private" IAWTV discussion board but these meetings should give us some insight. Was the alleged "blacklist" discussed? What about the alleged "mob rule." Were the questions about those who claim they were unfairly rejected for membership by the IAWTV addressed? There has been talk of forming a Board of Governors for the IAWTV, but the by-laws make it perfectly clear that the Board of Governors is just an advisory body and the real teeth of the IAWTV lie with its Board of Directors and the Executive Director (effectively the CEO) appointed by them: Brady Brim-DeForest. There are many questions, but perhaps the biggest is:

"Should heads roll on the Board of Directors of the IAWTV?"

Now it is not very nice to talk about heads rolling (that is unless you are Felicia Day playing the role of a Highlander). Clearly the IAWTV involves a web of close personal friendships that make such talk difficult. However many members of the IAWTV would be first in line to ask for heads to roll when it comes to the cozy relationship between Wall Street banks and their oversight body. Or, how about the cozy relationship between BP and the Minerals Management Service? Why should we view the cozy relationship between Tubefilter and the IAWTV any different? Now Tim Street would say the Tubefilter guys are just like kids growing up and they should be given a second chance. Perhaps, but, is that not a bit like saying the crew of the Deepwater Horizon were just playing with Tinker Toys and next time they will get it right. For several of them there will be no next time and for the rest of us we will live with the consequences of the cozy relationship between BP and MMS for years to come. While clearly not on the same scale as the Gulf oil spill, the perpetuation of a cozy relationship between Tubefilter and the Board of Directors of the IAWTV is only going to prolong the clean up operation for the web series community.

So, the question becomes, will there be significant changes at the top? Will the membership show a commitment to creating an IAWTV that is global, fair and offers even access to all? Or, will the membership back the status quo and give their endorsement to a system of "insiders" and conflict of interest? The choice is clearly theirs to make but the impact of that choice will be felt by everyone involved with web series for years to come. Failure to change such a glaring problem with the Board of Directors of the IAWTV could well put the legitimacy of the entire entity in question and seriously taint the reputation of anyone associated with it.

What is your opinion? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Squatters: In Search of a Douche (103)

"Steamboat" Series - Episode 1


"Steamboat" Episode 1. Get to know the characters of Steamboat. This episode begins a series that should not be missed. "The Office" meets "All My Children" in this behind-the-scenes look at the desperate dying days of a daytime soap opera.

From the press release:


STEAMBOAT COMEDY SERIES CAPTURES BEST BRANDED ENTERTAINMENT NOMINATION

(New York) - STEAMBOAT, the new YouTube comedy sensation, has been named one of three BRANDED ENTERTAINMENT finalists in the Next TV Competition of the LATV Fest, sponsored by NATPE, the National Association of Television Program Executives. Winners will be named during a live stream at the Los Angeles, CA event on July 14.
STEAMBOAT debuted on YouTube Comedy in March, where the pilot can still be viewed. The show has been compared to “The Office” and “30 Rock” for its “behind the scenes” look at the desperate, dying days of a once successful daytime soap. In true Christopher Guest style, the behind the scenes aspect offers a glimpse in to the real or “unreal” lives of the characters who all believe they are Emmy worthy actors.
The real edge to the show, however, is in its groundbreaking approach to product integration. Leaving product placement in its dust, STEAMBOAT, integrates a personality for product sponsors, with high quality entertainment AND dynamic, consumer and audience interaction.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for STEAMBOAT and our sponsors to be seen and to pitch our show to major decision makers in the entertainment industry. We will be exposed to the best development executives, agents, advertising and brand executives,” said Executive Producer and Director Scott Bryce.
