This week join the conversation with Brett Register, Craig Frank, Rick Rey, Zadi Diaz, and Steve Woolf as we talk at length about what a web series actually is, the upcoming Streamy Awards, the International Academy of Web Television, and the ghost of Pixelodeon. Oh, and we drink a lot of wine (except for Craig Frank).
There's a lot of talk about the new generation of Los Angeles entertainment-driven web video makers, the proliferation of scripted series, the lack of quality out there, and the experience of creating non-fiction content versus fictional content. We also touch on some of the hot points around screeners for web series to prompt to Streamy votes, branded entertainment, the small presence of international participants in the International Academy of Web Television, the brief run (and revival?) of WebTVDirt, and east coast versus west coast versus midwest web series creators.
NOTE: sorry about all the cell phone interference in this episode. Next time, all phones in airplane mode!
UPDATE: Jon from Hawaii won the Buckyballs! Thanks for listening the whole way, Jon!
