A collaboration featuring some of my favorite web show producers, Wreck & Salvage, is auctioning off an opportunity to sponsor the first week of their new show. The winner of the auction gets their name, site and a short clip mentioned in the title card of the first two episodes, and a banner ad on the site for a week — they’ve provided an example of their intro to see how it would work.
It’s a new wrinkle in the world of wrangling sponsors for web video projects, and I’m sure will be watched closely by other creators. As Wreck & Salvage contributor Erik Nelson of Bottom Union points out, “We have no market value, now is the time to buy!” Other show contributors will include Adam Quirk of Bullemhead, Chris Weagel of Human Dog, Aaron Valdez of Valdezatron Industries and Milt Sherwood of Fur Pajamas — all experienced producers of quality web video content. At the current high bid of $51, it seems like a bargain not to be missed.
