Here is the Playlist for the 6 episodes of this season.
Neil is a twenty-something guy going nowhere in life. He works a dead-end job, has no girlfriend, and his best friend isn't exactly the best. But today, something is different. People are starting to pay attention to him. It just might not be the kind of attention he was looking for.
The Power Inside is an interactive social film, presented by Intel and Toshiba, directed by Will Speck and Josh Gordon, starring Analeigh Tipton, Craig Roberts, and YOU. It's Hollywood's first social film where the audience helps save or destroy the world.

And just because the filming is done, doesn't mean the work is. We have been working hard on the marketing and promotion, and that is coming together at long last as well. This week we received notice from a television station that reaches 250,000 homes in Northern Virginia, that they would like to air Shotgun Mythos on their network. So Clint is busy re-editing all 39 webisodes into 28 minute episodes. We are very excited to be expanding our audience with 18 episodes on TV!
And of course, it is time to start filming again! We have been busy with casting, scheduling, location scouting and testing makeup and effects. And as I type this, my phone just beeped, reminding me that the next episode of the show is going live tonight. As of this week, we have been releasing new content every Thursday for a year!
So, all of the endless hours are finally paying off in a lot of ways. And we are excited with all of the developments.
Hey, #OJBG darlings! Guess what? A new “Casting Couch” bonus video was just released! Here, Ellen Winter (aka Sarah) sits down with Otessa (aka the creator) to revisit Ep. 2.4. Does this have you excited all over again for more #OJBG goodness?!
Did you ever want to share your unique story with the world, but not know how? Here, at 20/20 Productions, we believe everyone has something worth telling. So, follow these easy instructions, as told by singer-songwriter Jen Foster, and help us to weave our Tapestry.
Nick’s agent, Mort has a brilliant plan to help his career — shooting him!

A huge payoff from the longevity of the LRO mission is the repeat coverage obtained by the LROC Wide Angle Camera (WAC). The WAC has a very wide field-of-view (FOV), 90° in monochrome mode and 60° in multispectral mode, hence its name. On the one hand, the wide FOV enables orbit-to-orbit stereo, which allowed LROC team members at the DLR to create the unprecedented 100 meter scale near-global (0° to 360° longitude and 80°S to 80°N latitude) topographic map of the Moon (the GLD100)!

Joe Wilson reminds us all, that it's about the story after-all. If you are an online content creator of any sort, then you shouldn't pass up the valuable information contained in this interview with Joe Wilson (creator of Vampire Mob) as he breaks down the process of creating a web series. If you have already seen the interview, then use it as a refresher, if you haven't seen it and you are new to the online web series creation universe, then this should be on your must-watch list and saved in your toolbox for future reference; it's that important! When Mr. Wilson asks the question, "what story do you want to tell," he purposely filters out all the online video brimming with shock value footage whose sole purpose is focused on doing nothing more than chasing the going viral "golden-ring." That my friends is nothing more than hitting a video lottery. I know, there are some recent star antics that are laughing all the way to the bank, but the point is what story does it tell? Eventually, at some point, in the near future hopefully, we will be able to grapple with the "tsunami of content" coming at us, as Joe points out, and get some organize method of finding creative story-driven content. As a writer, that's my wish.

FaceBook: S17 2-year anniv events
#s17 (Happy Birthday Occupy)
#S17 events and social media to follow
Occupy Wall Street (OWS) is the name given to a protest movement that began on September 17, 2011, in Zuccotti Park, located in New York City's Wall Street financial district. This date may be disputed with a likely trigger event as early as August 1, 2011, as a nude artist performance "Ocularpation: Wall Street" followed by arrests on Wall Street occurred while protesting American financial institutions.
The main issues raised by Occupy Wall Street were social and economic inequality, greed, corruption and the perceived undue influence of corporations on government—particularly from the financial services sector. The OWS slogan, We are the 99%, refers to income inequality and wealth distribution in the U.S. between the wealthiest 1% and the rest of the population. To achieve their goals, protesters acted on consensus-based decisions made in general assemblies which emphasized direct action over petitioning authorities for redress.

Of course, I'm happy to share my experience in producing Cap South, a project that consumed a great deal of my life this past spring and summer. But as a fan of web series more broadly, I'm also eager to post links and reviews in an effort to spark discussion of other web projects of interest. For those of you who haven't heard of Cap South, think West Wing meets Workaholics. The show includes 11 episodes (typically ~5-7 min per episode) and dozens of ancillary videos - attack ads & crazy constituent phone calls - to supplement the overarching narrative. All of these videos were released over the course of five weeks spanning July and August 2013.
Thus far, the project has been very well received by fans, critics, and the press. Most recently, Cap South was named an Official Selection of ATLWebFest.
I invite you to check out the full project via a compilation playlist on the Official YouTube Channel - nearly 2 hours of content in total. I welcome any and all feedback on Cap South, as well as questions about any aspect of the show. In the coming weeks, I'll blog about some of the lessons I learned through the writing and production process - what "worked" and what didn't - and how I'm hoping to build on the project in the future.
In the mean time, aside from any thoughts, comments, criticism or praise you have for Cap South, I'd love to hear more about your favorite comedy shows on the web. There's never been a better time to be a fan and creator of online video entertainment!

We have long time community members in the path of the flood so we wish them well. Hopefully the following resources can be of some assistance:
This update has to be done manually so there is a significant chance that an author can be removed by mistake. If this has happened to you, then please let us know as soon as possible and you will be added back to the list. We also realize that from time to time an author may take a break, but still wants to actively contribute. Again, if you find yourself removed from the list and want to actively participate please let us know as soon as possible. Vacant positions often fill up quite quickly, so we once again stress that you should let us know a.s.a.p..
When updating the list it is important that we are able to correlate the post by a given "author" with the user name they signed up with. For some reason some "authors" choose the name "unknown" which is far from helpful and these "authors" are quite likely to be removed. It is important to choose a name that allows us to identify you from your posts when updating the list.
Please remember that a click in the wrong place is all it takes to accidentally remove someone from the list, so if you have posted recently, and were removed by accident, please do not take it personally. This is some thing we can quickly reverse with your cooperation. Also, there is a chance that if you were recently added to the "author list" and have not yet had time to post, you may have been removed from the list. Once again, let us know a.s.a.p. and we can simply add you back.
f you are not currently an "author" and want to actively participate in Web Series Today, then please follow the directions in the link on the right menu of Web Series Today. Please do not sign up if you only want to make a single post. The blog is intended for those who want to actively participate in this community. so signing up to make a single post is a waste of everyones time, and you will simply be removed after 30 days of not posting. Instead, just ask one of the existing authors to make the post on your behalf. That has the added benefit that the community gets to help each other.
If you have previously applied to become an "author" and have not yet received an invite you should be aware that we recently discovered an issue with the application process. It appears that some applications have been directed to a "spam" folder for some unknown reason. In the next week we will be checking the spam folder to see if any "author requests" have been missed. With this current update we now have a few open "author positions" so we hope to be able to process any outstanding requests.
