I am anxious to to see the Naught For Hire webseries Ben is a part of(actor,producer) and how it will be distributed. I have been checking out the state of this still fledgling medium. I caught some of the early eps of Santuary before it was picked up and have watched The Guild and Riese. Recently at the SXSW, a panel on webseries was held which had some interesting insights.Antipodal Arapaima blog has a fantastic audio link. Riese was an independent production which the SyFy Channel acquired and has put some additional funding towards. Mercury Men is also being distributed by SyFy. I enjoy these as they can be viewed any place you can connect to the internet, day or night. The episodes are short and leave you wanting more. I personally think Naught For Hire lends itself to this format. Two years ago the New York Times Media and Advertising section did an interesting piece on this area of entertainment sadly it is still the truth. I wonder if advertisers and studio marketing teams are ready?
