Woah... YouTube Strikes Again

YouTube has apparently taken a liking to "PINK". A couple days ago they featured the show under the "Entertainment" category, but today I just saw where they put it on their MAIN PAGE. Not the main page of the channels, or categories, etc.... THE main page. You type in YouTube.com and PINK Webisode 01 is right there. Very cool stuff indeed.

One interesting thing I'm finding is that while we are getting lots of views on the first episode, the subsequent ones aren't near as numerous. Now don't get me wrong, they are climbing for sure, but not near as fast as the single episode YouTube is featuring. My belief is that most YouTube users are accustom to the "one hit wonder" videos (mostly the "kick in the crotch" stuff). So, they usually only watch that single video, then go off to another place.

"PINK" is a serialized show. A mini-TV series if you will. Each episode builds on each other to tell the story. It takes a little to get used to (on the web), but folks are beginning to get the idea. And with YouTube's help, more folks are seeing the show everyday. And as a filmmaker that's really all I can ask for.

  • To spread the word on YouTube, you need to be more active. Learn to use the mail system to send friend requests and share your other videos with the community this way. Also, add your episodes as video responses to other highly viewed videos where appropriate. Good luck.

  • More specifically, I suggest you send friend requests to anyone who has commented on your first episode. You will be amazed at the results.

Who Am I?

I'm a filmmaker who's produced & directed five feature films including the comedy SPILT MILK (available on iTunes), the new horror/thriller PHOBIA (on iTunes) and the action/thiller KILLING DOWN (which you can buy or rent at pretty much all the usual places).

I also created the Streamy and Webby award-winning web series PINK, which to date has been viewed online around 10 MILLION times at places like YouTube, Hulu, Koldcast and TheWB.com. And speaking of TheWB.com, I also produced and directed an online thriller for them called EXPOSED. It was released summer 2010. And most recently I created a new online sci-fi series called CONTINUUM, which is part of the online indie TV network JTS.tv - Just The Story and NOW available via VOD through indie platform Distrify.

Oh, and I don't shoot weddings. Thanks for asking though.
