'That Media Show' Worth Imitating
August 5, 2008 11:28 AM
I’ve checked out a lot of Web video shows in the last year. And in the last month. And in the last 24 hours.
Most of them don’t stand out.
But “That Media Show” does stand out.
The series is a new project from the independent filmmaker and technology guru John Flowers, whose work I admire. And what I like about his new show—which covers the business of visual effects, movies, indie filmmaking and post-production—is that the series hits the ground running from the very first episode. That means good production values, smart writing, funny asides, insightful content, oh, and a really damn good host.
My only suggestion for the show is to embed the episode on the home page rather than offer links to iTunes and blip feeds, because when I first landed on the URL I expected to see an episode there and it took a few seconds to realize I needed to click on a link.
Here’s the first episode. And be sure to stay tuned all the way to the end. I do love outtakes.
