    I think they were only going to have the trailer for a little while, to get people interested in the shows. It’s cute and all, but a trailer can make anything look good. There’s nothing on there about the different shows. How do we know if there’s anything we want to watch without more info than that little thing? Is there some tab I’m missing that you can click on to see what the shows are?

  2. fingers crossed for writers

    I had no issues with the video…but today is the 4th, and I don’t see anything launched yet over on their site. Just this trailer thingy.

    Somebody needs to hire a marketing staff. :P

  3. Wow look what they wrote in there blog post for “Independence Day.”

    “If you are a professional film or television story-teller and are in the WGA, DGA or SAG, and have a COMPLETED web series, pilot or film that you’re looking to monetize and distribute across the internet, we’d love to hear from you. Drop us a line and tell us about yourself and your creation at [email protected].”

    That just feels so warm, open and “Independent.”
