The web series is dying – and Netflix and Amazon Prime are responsible

The web series is dying – and Netflix and Amazon Prime are responsible | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

As brand new shows found audiences online, established web series had already proved the viability of the medium as a career launchpad: Broad City, a New York-based comedy about best friends Ilana and Abbi, was picked up by Comedy Central; Children’s Hospital, a kind of nightmarish Scrubs, is now shown on Adult Swim; and Burning Love, a Ben Stiller spoof of The Bachelor, won an Emmy. They all began as online series, in the wild west web, where anything goes.

"James Rawson: The fledgling format, which seemed full of potential only a year ago, is in decline, because it cannot compete with the big guns of online television"

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, September 14, 2:27 PM

The emergence of Netflix & Amazon Prime over web series argues that the value proposition for consumers is on control first--the  'delivery on demand' rather than the raw, quirkiness of indy productions.  Now the face-off moves to content.  But can high budget productions keep up with demand for content?  Raises the bar for web series, certainly, and eliminates the novelty effect for early adopters, but good content is good content.  I see adaptation not demise.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, September 9, 5:02 PM

A summary of Apple's announcements for the launch of its new products: the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the Apple Watch and ApplePay (where you can use your phone to make purchases). It is all very interesting - but this is an American site so keep in mind the prices are not realistic for us. Expect to pay nearly $1000 for the new top-model iPhone. :/

Having once been involved in the founding of an arts magazine, I have experienced intimately the ways in which such an endeavor can depend upon a community of equals pooling a diversity of skills.

These artists uses the surrounding as a prop for their creation.
