Hi WebSeriesToday folks,
I wanted to let you know that we just launched a new site that will help you get the word out about your web shows/series.
It's called HypeScreen and it compiles all the best web shows from across the net and categorizing them so they're easy to find. You can also vote, comment and add them to your favorites.
It's called HypeScreen and it looks something like this (link below)...
There's a SCRIPTED category that I think is super interesting for web series lovers and producers. There are already a bunch of really good web series in there and you can easily get yours on there via the 'Add a Show' link.
We also started a blog called The HypeScreen Report that posts reviews, lists and other news about the web shows you'll find on HypeScreen. It's here: https://hypescreenreport.wordpress.com/.
Since I think some of these blog posts will be interesting to you guys, I'll post them here as well but if you're interested in following us directly, please like us on Facebook & Twitter or sign-up for our newsletter on the HypeScreen site.
Thanks for your support!
Sergio @ HypeScreen

Flash Pulp is an experiment in broadcasting fresh pulp stories in the modern age – three to ten minutes of fiction brought to you Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings.
From all the many film screenings vying for our votes with wine receptions, to balls, to dance functions there is another event which has been annual for many years: to visit Status Quo, normally at the 02. The arena was packed with a faithful audience dancing and singing their hearts out. The band were on good form. I have been watching them again since we re-met in 2005 on Coronation Street and I proposed making a film together. The cast went .......
I was at the O2 with Jean, who now plays Doris Shades in Shades Of Bad for which she won best actress this year.
In Bula Quo Doris / Jean played Reiko Best the TV news anchor. Also at the Quo concert was our daughter Laura Aikman and partner Matt Kennard who were also both in Fiji with us in Bula Quo, Laura played Caroline and Matt played the reporter, Dave.
new Caroline song .... The film Bula Quo is still available worldwide and we are just closing a sales deal with Metrodome for it's TV sales as well as the (possible) sequel Namaste Quo which is still muted to film 2017 or 2018. The Fijian mash up brought a Hawaiian / Fijian feel to the classical score with acoustic versions of some of their great hits including Down Down and Whatever You Want. That spurned the Acoustic period. The plan for Namaste Quo is to fuse with Bollywood and introduce sitar rock fusion. You should always have dreams to stretch the future even when some feel safer in the past and that will be fun if it ever happens. It was fun writing the first script, touring India and doing the recce! I watched the concert last night thinking I can see two really hot rock chics playing electric violins and singing backing vocals adding to that line up. We will see, they sometimes listen to my crazy ideas.
I first met Quo and many of the old record industry people in the backstage 02 bar when I was a radio DJ back in the 1970's and spent a time working at EMI in marketing and promotion. It meant another
night of festive fun was with the Knordoff Robbins boxing night at
the Hilton. Jean (Doris) has never been to a boxing night, but her friend Grace Kennedy was there with her partner Nigel Angel the media lawyer and they chatted and talked with other celebs like John Conteh and Ian Wright rather than watching the fights. I should just say here that another night this Christmas week is a gig with the Mick Flinn Band, he the lead singer of the Mixtures who had a hit with The Pushbike Song etc .. and his wife Donna Flinn (who plays Elsie in Shades Of Bad) will no doubt sing. As they both joined The New Seekers (I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing etc) for many years with original band members Marty Kristain and Paul Leyton, I expect to see them there. When as a DJ on Metro Radio in 1978 with James Whale (who appears in Shades Of Bad on Boxing Day) I introduced The New Seekers on stage at the Tyneside Summer Exhibition. I later met Mick at parties where myself, Colin Cook and Davey Jones of the Monkees would site on the work surface in the kitchen, probably as that brought us up to the same height as the others... almost.
We are trying to set a shoot day between Christmas and new year to get at least another three episodes in the can with our new (as yet not revealed) star, but getting dates of busy people is not easy. On the 9th we take the camera skiing in the Three Valleys so that will be the next batch of travel films. Episode 30 is now live, two to go to James Whale.
Sorry, this turned into a little reminisce, but then you do at Christmas....
Here is our Christmas message ... merry Christmas - Happy Holidays
