March 2010 Archives

This week we hear the inspiring story behind one of the most successful web shows of 2010, The Bannen Way, with filmmakers Jesse Warren and Mark Gantt. Zadi Diaz, Rick Rey, and Steve Woolf talk about their origins in new media and Jesse and Mark offer story after story about the door being closed on their project by other people and their refusal to accept it.

This one is not to be missed by creatives and filmmakers out there who are frustrated with the system and need to hear people talking about never taking no for an answer. Jesse and Mark tell stories that neither of them ever heard from each other before, and we get into gritty detail about the way The Bannen Way was conceived, created, packaged, and delivered.

We're back with Steve Woolf and Zadi Diaz chatting with Brady Brim-DeForest and Jamison Tilsner, the respective CEO and COO of Tubefilter, as well as two of the co-founders of the International Academy of Web Television and the Streamys. With the 2010 Streamy Awards less than 3 weeks away, we get up to speed on how this event evolved, the form and substance of the IAWTV, and talk in-depth about the criticism of the Streamys from other content creators over the past couple of weeks.

It's a conversation in downtown Los Angeles with an annoying cat in the background and a bottle of wine. Come hang out!

Sitting around a table in downtown LA this week, it's a conversation about web video with guests Rudy Jahchan and Casey McKinnon, and regular participants Chris McCaleb, Zadi Diaz, and Steve Woolf as we talk shop about the web television industry. We booze it up and chat about Streamy voting and nominations, the Good Knight's Quest premiere party in Hollywood, and whether the walls of the LA web video bubble are getting too thick.

There's a lot of talk around what worked and didn't work in the Streamy nominee voting process, web series creators who can and can't make web experiences that work, and how much Chris hates the word "content."
