Welcome to WebVee Guide, home of the the most followed webseries magazine. Take some time to explore our reviews, synopses, videos and podcasts. We’re back following some awfully irritating technical difficulties. Sorry about all that. This week we’re celebrating the fact that all the local children are finally getting off our collective lawns and heading back to school.
So long suckers Have fun learning, kiddos!
Got a kid who loves to cook? How about a kid who loves pie? Okay, what about a kid who needs something to do because they’re way too energetic and it’s trying your last nerve? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you are an ideal candidate to become a regular viewer of Ty the Pie Guy.
Boss Bitches of History
You’ve got to hand it to the folks at Wisecrack. They produce the kind of content you wish had been available when you were studying for those damn mid-terms. And unlike crib books, they do it in a very smart and funny way.
In A Nutshell
What is life? Is death real? Questions we ask ourselves every day. What? You don’t? Well then, maybe you wonder about nuclear energy, or black holes, or perhaps the Ebola virus.
6 Questions About WebFest Berlin
On September 4th and 5th, Germany will be holding its first ever international webseries festival in the form of WebFest Berlin. This is a crazy time for the organizers, but Meredith Burkholder was kind enough to take some time out of her schedule to answer some questions about the event:
WebVee Guide: Who founded and organized this festival? Why did they do so?
Meredith Burkholder: I founded and am directing the festival. After moving to Berlin 2.5 years ago, I started helping out managing the live action production on a no-budget web series called Mission Backup Earth. That show ended up winning the Grand Prize at the Melbourne Webfest which gave it automatic entry into the LA Web Fest and the Marseille Web Fest. After Alex Pfander, the creator of the series, returned from the LA WebFest, he told me this really nice guy named Michael Ajakwe (founder of the LA Web Fest) thought that Berlin would be a great place for a Webfest. I jumped at the idea. My background is in production management and events, and I spent many years in New York working on reality TV shows. So this opportunity to make an event to support independent creators making quality series outside of the traditional television system was right up my alley!
WVG: What is the status of webseries in Germany as compared to things like movies and TV shows?
MB: German web series are generally of very high quality, but the problem in Germany is that there has not been a central platform for web series, making them a bit hard to find. We are working hard to get exposure for these series and to spur conversations regarding platforms and distribution of web series.
