IFC and Web Series

I've already mentioned that we've been developing a web series, but we're not the only ones. There are many, many web series of a wide variety of creation formats: Flash, Machinima, as well as Live Action. [NB: As with much of what you find on the internet, not all these series are appropriate for all ages.]

Noting this very viable form of entertainment, the IFC launched a competition to get filmmakers to pitch their own web series. Pretty cool. But what's really cool is the promotional video that Casimir Nozkowski created for it.


Broadcast Standards

Thanks to Scott at The Editblog for pointing me to this great short video.

And it is a great short. Right at one and a half minutes. The lesson to be learned here is that short is good. Short shorts are the way to go. Keep it short, sweet, and to the point. This video nails that.

Just wanted to point out the good stuff when I see it.
