The Road to the 1st IAWTV Awards

Now that the first awards show for the International Academy of Web Television has come and gone I wanted to take some time to reflect on how things went. I’ve been a member of the organization for a little over a year, and it’s been great to see the awards show go from an idea to reality.  I was not directly involved with the planning of the awards so this is more just my perspective as an IAWTV member and as someone who submitted their show for the awards.

Target Kill: A Celebrate the Web pilot

Last week I produced a pilot for the week long Celebrate the Web pilot contest.  It was very similar to the 48 hour film contests we’ve entered before.  You have required elements to incorporate into your film and must do all the work within the week long time limit. We created a thriller, called Target Kill, about a man who lost his memories and without his knowledge is programmed to be a killer.

Check out Target Kill here and make sure to vote for your favorite pilot. You can vote once per day until March 26th.

Boss Battle

A friend that I had worked with asked me to help light and shoot a commercial he was doing for the Crash the Superbowl contest.  He had a great idea, and I think it really turned out well.  You can see it here or on YouTube in full HD glory.
