New Web Series to Cover Web Celebs:
“The Web.Files” Announces Its
Slated as a weekly series, “The Web.Files” will give viewers the inside scoop behind the hottest series on the web, and the “Web Celebs” who create them.
Los Angeles, California (July 1, 2009) – New web series, “The Web.Files,” will launch its inaugural episode on July 8, 2009, from multiple platforms across the web. Planned as a weekly talk/inteview show featuring 5- to 7-minute episodes, it was first conceived by entertainment correspondent and hosting veteran, Kristyn Burtt.
During her coverage of the March 28, 2009, Streamy Awards from the red carpet, Burtt realized that the people she was talking with that night had a lot of untold stories. Stories that she would like to tell.
She devised a plan to create a web series she would host centered around the principals involved in creating the best, most-watched, highest-rated, and most talked about series on the web.
Burtt contacted award-winning filmmaker, Sandra J. Payne, whose SPwrite Productions, LLC, was about to launch its first web series, “Life with Kat & McKay” on its new web portal, PurseDog.tv.
Both passionate about New Media, Burtt and Payne decided to combine forces to create “The Web.Files.” Burtt’s first interview is with YouTube sensation Tay Zonday, who became one of the early break-out stars from that site with his song, “Chocolate Rain,” which currently has more than 38 million hits.
“The Web.Files” opening sequence is now available for viewing. Follow “The Web.Files” on twitter at https://twitter.com/TheWebFiles, or find us on Facebook
