Interesting article at Tubefilter on folks who watch web series...
A few stats:
•60% watch Web original video content weekly
•58% see Web originals as providing quality entertainment whenever they want it
•Over one quarter of viewers find Web original content to be more entertaining than traditional television
That's pretty impressive! We'd like to think we helped start this trend with "Pink", and we hope to continue it in the future too with more content.
Here's a link to the full article:
To be continued... :)

Digital Chick TV is a cool site worth checking out. Their tagline is "Your Guide to the Best Online Shows for Women".
We're all about strong kick-ass female characters around here, and it looks like they are too.
And they just recently covered Pink's creator Blake Calhoun's new series Continuum (which also stars a strong female lead)...
Hey, we dig it. :)

TheWB.com got a recent facelift and it looks to us to be a similar design to Hulu, which ain't a bad idea. It's much simpler, with more space and a lot of white. We think overall it's a better user experience. The videos seem to play better too, although on our recent visit they didn't auto play the "next video" as it says it will, but we're still liking what we see.
Check it out for yourself at the "PINK" show page...
As usual, thanks for the support! :)

A good commentary about the Streamys and the IAWTV issues from a veteran web video creator, Tim Street:
Someone from old media once asked me, “Who do these guys think they are?” “Who gave them permission to do that?” I said, “It’s web video, you don’t have to ask permission, you just go do it.”

GOOD NEWS for the show!
We've secured a foreign distro deal through Fireworks International. The same folks who distribute VALEMONT, RIESE, GEMINI DIVISION, etc. So now PINK will be seen (legally) in an array of other places around the world. We hope too that this will help us get a Season 4 together very soon.

The main critic at NewTeeVee did an impromptu review of the show at her SXSW panel yesterday. She actually tweeted that she'd review the next series (that she hadn't reviewed before) that sent her a tweet. Show creator Blake Calhoun just happened to be online at the time and said she should review 'Pink', which she did. And later in the day she actually wrote it out for the NewTeeVee blog...
Here's a link to the review:
Let's just say that we don't think she completely gets the series, but that's okay, we know you guys get it. :)

From the creators of 'Pink' comes their next venture in the new media world...
Today we announced the cast, start date, etc. in a press release!
Alternative Fuel, Loud Pictures Prep New Sci-Fi Thriller 'Continuum'
Original Web Series Created and Produced by 'Pink's' Blake Calhoun and Mike Maden Starts Shooting February 22nd
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 4, 2010 -- Director Blake Calhoun and longtime producing partner Mike Maden, the award-winning production team behind some of the Web's most cinematic original series including Pink, 88 Hits and TheWB.com's forthcoming Exposed, today announced principal photography on their next digital project, the sci-fi thriller series Continuum, will begin February 22nd in Dallas, Texas and Los Angeles and will release the first ten episodes this summer.
Created by Calhoun and Maden and produced & directed by Calhoun, Continuum is a futuristic thriller in the noir-ish tradition of 2001: A Space Odyssey and Alien starring Melanie Merkosky (CBS/EQAL's Harper's Globe) as Raegen, a woman who mysteriously finds herself aboard a space ship with no memory of how she got there and at the mercy of the ship's computer, voiced by actress/producer Taryn O'Neill, best-known for breakout performances in Compulsions (for which she recently won the inaugural Indie Soap Award for Best Supporting Actress) and the post-apocalyptic After Judgment franchise. Brad Hawkins, veteran TV/film actor and costar of Pink, rounds out Continuum’s minimal cast as Tipton.
"I’m really excited about Continuum because I've always loved the darker side of science fiction and this series will allow us to put our own spin on the genre," said Calhoun. "We’ve decided to produce the series as an independent, like we did with the first season of Pink. We’re going to give owning our content a try again and see how it works out."
Continuum is being produced by Calhoun and Maden's Alternative Fuel and Loud Pictures production companies in association with CJP Digital Media, the production/distribution/promotion arm behind successful Web originals including Illeana Douglas's IKEA-branded comedy Easy to Assemble, Spherion-sponsored The Temp Life (which will feature O’Neill in the Feb 8 episode) and dark crime drama The Fall of Kaden. Calhoun and Maden are represented by United Talent Agency and managed by Generate.
About Alternative Fuel
Alternative Fuel was formed in 2008 by filmmakers Blake Calhoun and Mike Maden to produce content for the television, film and new media markets. Currently two feature film projects are being developed, along with a Warner Bros. TV script, and a new online series.
Calhoun and Maden first teamed up to create the Webby nominated and Streamy winning series Pink. That show has now been viewed nearly 8 million times on YouTube, Hulu, iTunes, TheWB.com, Koldcast, Facebook, MySpace, Vuze, Yahoo, MSNBC, Blip.tv and others. So far three seasons have been produced (35 episodes), and more are under consideration, as is a DVD and possible film adaptation.
From the success of Pink, Calhoun and Maden pitched and sold another original web series to Warner Bros., who then partnered them with executive producer McG and his company Wonderland Sound and Vision. That show is called Exposed and will be released in 2010 on TheWB.com.
About CJP Digital Media
CJP Digital Media, a unit of NY-based CJP Communications, specializes in creating, distributing and promoting brand-centric messages and content via digital, social, mobile and traditional media channels for clients across industries. CJP created one of the very first and now longest-running brand-sponsored Web series: The Temp Life as an alternative communications vehicle for recruiting firm client, Spherion Corp. in 2006. Most-recently, CJP Digital worked with IKEA and creator/producer Illeana Douglas to promote and distribute the current season of their branded Web comedy Easy to Assemble, which Advertising Age proclaimed "the most watched branded Web show to date."
