Web Shows

I haven’t completely researched this yet but I find it fascinating.  I wanted to be an animator for Disney.  I interviewed and sent in portfolios and never made it.  I tried Fox Animation and learned just how competitive the industry could be.  I’ve got enough rejection letters to wallpaper my house.  I got a bit huffy and thought, “Baah!  I don’t need someone else to allow me to make animation.”  I’ve always liked the idea of Ed McMahon or some other Voice Over talent saying, “LIVE from Studio B… it’s SPENCER BRINKERHOFF!”  So I just put a few things together.

I’m Spencer Brinkerhoff III, and my site is Studio “S” “B” “3”.  So now it’s “LIVE from Studios B3…”  :D  I’ve always thought that the web was the way to make things happen for myself.  I haven’t buckled down and made my own series yet, but I can see it happening.

So here’s what’s new.  At the San Diego ComicCon there was a big panel discussion about the tv show, The Greatest American Hero.  I haven’t researched it yet so I’m not sure exactly what it’s all about, but it would appear that they are making a comic or bringing back the show.  Today I found a link to a website that says it’s a new web series.  It may be a fan made production, but I’m impressed that they are doing it.

The next one is on a bit of a bigger scale.  I had heard that Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy and Firefly etc. was going to be doing a new project. I need to do some more research, but it would appear that it’s an online series.

I started watching this and was not too impressed.  I saw that the whole thing was 40+ minutes and I started to squirm.  I’ve got work to do and I don’t think that I have the patience to sit and…..Sing-along?  Neil Patrick Harris is Singing?  But it’s, well, it’s GOOD!  LOL!  I couldn’t turn it off.  I minimized my other windows so that I could have one eye on the show and the other on what I was working at.  I was laughing out loud!  I’m on the fence with the ending, but I’ll watch it again with my wife and give it another shot.  I need to go through and read more about it, but the web is the way to  distribute.
