Wow.  So YouTube finally is close to opening their brand new New York studios and I am officially excited.

The production facilities are supposed to be much bigger/better than the previous ones. Before, there were two small green screen studios and, truthfully, I took a few classes in those studios and they were big enough for my purposes.  In fact, I thought they were great.  I’m hearing the…

Adventures of a Web Series Newbie - Chapter 78: Juggling Less

I’m not a huge circus fan but I seem to spend a lot of time juggling.  And it’s kinda driving me nuts.

I’ve been working towards a deadline and it’s been nuts (pulling 12-15 hour days) so this week will be short.  I was going to postpone but instead decided to write a few words about Joan Rivers, who, unless you’ve been living under a rock and didn’t hear, recently died.

I don’t think there’s a female comedian today who’s not indebted to her.  And while I’m not a stand-up, I do write comedy and…
