On a happier note, if you don’t watch Brows Held High on Channel Awesome you are MISSING OUT
This guy’s stuff is absolutely incredible, like yes he reviews “artsy” movies that you likely haven’t seen but you don’t have to see them to enjoy the reviews
He really does his research and knows his shit, and he’s very socially conscious too
girlwiththebatshitcraziness asked: This is going to be a cliched question but what advice would you give to people who are thinking of starting their own review web series?
Honestly, don’t. It’s impossible to start a review web series in this climate. Media critics like us moved to Blip in order to escape Youtube copyright protection bots, and then Blip started closing their doors to everyone without a sizable audience. One prevents you from monetizing, the other prevents you from expanding. And neither one is worth the time and effort if you’re just going to try and ape someone else’s half-a-decade-old formula. Not when there is so much more happening creatively on the internet right now, WITHOUT the nonsense of bot-dodging and claim-appealing.
So really, don’t do what we do.
Just do what you do.
This. This is why I didn’t get into reviewing, and why, whenever I get back into the internet media thing, I’ll go straight into original content and stay CLEAR away from reviewing, save for cameos or if someone wants me to co-review something with them.
