Calling All Twittering Web Video Creators

August 18, 2008 7:37 AM

Calling all Web video creators!

I have begun hosting weekly Twitter contests to review Web video shows.

Here’s how it works: Once a week at a random, unplanned time of my choosing, I will announce on Twitter that it’s time for submissions for weekly reviews. I will take the first five submissions and watch one episode of the show. You’ll need to pick the episode number you want me to watch. Then I will review that episode in my TVWeek blog.

Know what that means? You all need to follow me on Twitter! You can do so here: Twitter.com/DaisyWhitney

That's a good idea. I hope to catch the tweet. It will be kind of hard with all the other people that I will be following..

So now you are looking to become a web video reviewer/critic? I think that's a good idea since we have yet to see the "Eper and Roeper's" of the web video space.

In all fairness, NewTeeVee Station and Tilzy.TV do a far better job reviewing shows than I will. I'll post the first set of reviews shortly -- I've decided to focus on the production values, explication and the intended audience because taste is so subjective.

I think it is a great idea, but how do we submit to you if we are only following you on twitter. Wouldn't you have to be following us as well?? I know of this awesome webseries and I have been following you for awhile, but I don't know how to tell you about the series.
