Trial and Error

End of a Ninja Era?

March 18, 2008 10:26 AM

You can find out pretty much anything from blogs these days. All you have to do is RSS those little suckers and you are in the know.

So here’s what I learned thanks to my RSS for Kent Nichols this morning.

As you know, or as you should know, Nichols is one of the co-creators of the hit Web series “Ask a Ninja” and has been tapped to direct a remake of cult favorite “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.”

He said in a recent blog post that he and co-creator Doug Sarine may take a break from “Ask a Ninja” after their current contract to produce the Web show runs out.

Check out the post. In addition to their possible Ze Frank/Quit While You’re Ahead suggestion, the post offers great insight into the aspirational path of new media.

On a related note, if you want to follow Kent and Doug’s path and get into feature filmmaking, you may want to check out www.hungryflix.com. It’s a self-service site for filmmakers and producers to upload their flicks.
