Web Series Today: Become an "Author"

Web Series Today is a "collaborative community based blog" about "web series" What that means is that members of the web series community can become "authors" and post videos, articles about web series, or links to information/news about web series and related topics such as ARGs or "Transmedia".

By creating an open platform for posting videos and web series news chronologically Web Series Today aims to fill the role of keeping the community up to date with what is going on on a daily basis. Show creators, cast, crew, or even fans and "critics" are all eligible to participate because they are in the best position to know what is going on with a particular series.

"Authors" on the blog can post about any series they enjoy and believe that the readership of Web Series Today would also enjoy. It is important to understand the culture, format and open philosophy of Web Series Today before becoming a participant, so if interested, take the time to read the blog daily. For example an author might want to just introduce readers to a series that they think might be of interest or the author might choose to post videos from a series on a regular basis as they are released. Authors are fully responsible for anything they post and answer directly to the web series community.

If you would like to become a participant as an "author" send a request to:
[email protected] Use the subject title: "Author request" and explain briefly how you are involved in the web series community.

Blogger only allows a restricted number of authors so it is important that those who do decide to participate contribute on a regular basis to the shared goal of keeping the community up to date with what is going on in the web series World.

Bullying is not cool. - michiev


I didn't script this video. Which is why i was tripping over my thoughts and words. I get a little jumbled when i don't write things out. I was filming this behind my garage, I kept looking to see if anyone would come cause i didn't want them to see me filming and think i was crazy.

It was cold outside too.

Montréal Hearts: Episode 8 - Beef Job Interview from Montreal Hearts on Vimeo.


Montreal Hearts Episode 8 - Beef Job Interview. Still reeling from his discovery that money is missing, Reg decides to hold job interviews with prospective security men. While standing on Reg's rooftop overlooking the downtown core, Garth is horrified to learn that Reg has placed an ad on Craigslist for the security position. The candidates are all unsuitable, starting with a Quebecois guy (JS Elie) who does not want to get mixed up in a prostitution ring. He is followed by a muscular lynyrd skynyrd guy (Elias Varoutsos) seeking pussy, and a fiendish fuck the poor Kiwi Australian (Chris Alsop) who hates police. Their last applicant is a Garfield the cat Gary Coleman guy (Shaun Malley) wearing a straw hat. After Garth leaves to deal with his wife Maxine, a towering brute called the Beef enters. He professes to know about Discordianism and tantric engineering. Reg is pleased to have finally met someone who can deal with the escort agency aspect of the job.

'Save the Date' - Coming Soon to Rocketboom!


Save the Date is a ten part web series that takes place in real-time featuring Rocketboom Daily's host, Molly. Written and directed by award-winning independent filmmaker Brett Haley, Save the Date revolves around the social media mishaps between a group of friends moments before two of the friends update their relationship status from engaged to married. A situational comedy that exposes the misunderstandings that can occur when relying on technology for the truth/facts, Save the Date pokes fun at how being so connected can interfere with rational thinking. Shot over 3 days in New York City with a cast and crew of local talent, Save the Date is Rocketboom's first co-produced narrative series.

What happened to NewTeeVee? The once popular news site for web series appears to have been wrapped into the main Gigaom web site. The NewTeeVee.com domain now re-directs to http://gigaom.com/video and appears to have a different RSS feed from the original NewTeeVee site. The Gigaom web site retains a sub header for NewTeeVee but it appears that they have decided to move away from the "NewTeeVee brand" toward a more integrated Gigaom new web site.

Hopefully someone at Gigaom or NewTeeVee can clarify what is going on behind the scenes.

Cyphers Episode One -- "Coincidentia Oppositorum"

Coincidentia Oppositorum from David Forlano on Vimeo.

From Wikipedia: Coincidentia oppositorum is a Latin phrase meaning coincidence of opposites. It is a neoplatonic term attributed to 15th century German polymath Nicholas of Cusa in his essay, De Docta Ignorantia (1440). Mircea Eliade, a 20th century historian of religion, used the term extensively in his essays about myth and ritual, describing the coincidentia oppositorum as "the mythical pattern".
