Yep, we are hip deep in award season and yes, there are web video award shows. The Streamy Awards will be buzzing on February 17, 2013 at the Hollywood Palladium.
The award show looks at the best of web video series, performers and experiences. This is a 10 minute recitation of the contenders for 2013:
I'm seeing a lot of mainstream performers crossing the fence but there are established web video performers that I recognize.
I'm also seeing that a bunch of quality shows that aren't on the list. Part of that is there still isn't a good way to find what you are looking for in web video. YouTube makes it easier but you have to work on it.
There is greatness happening on Vimeo and other distribution services that do not get a proper shout out from viewer because they don't know what gives outside of the walled communities.
This is an on-going problem. I don't want web video to become, content-wize old television.
Diversity in content is my mantra.
If you don't happen to be in the area, no worries, the show will be live streamed on Streamy.org
Get the couch comfy with a Root Beer Float or Rum and Coke (Coca-Cola is a sponsor) and get ready to utter or tweet your solids or hell, no at the screen.
