2010 Annual Balance from Series & TV

This is the time of the year when balances are made. We cannot be the exception.
I am the author and editor at Series And TV (dot com) a quarter million monthly US hits site in the entertainment niche. The site covers entertainment industry and shows news, and has a focus on contents for actors and industry related people, with resources such as casting calls, audition dates and venues, tips, and interviews, among other TV and Series related content. It also covers Book Reviews, Film News, Theatre Auditions, Studios and Theme Parks Information, etcetera. Series And TV started in January 2009 as a nice little enthusiastic project by a Television Fan, and a side project to my company, but eventually grew enough as to be two person full-time job. In these two years, the growth of the site has been notorious, starting on January 2009 on 14,000 monthly visits, to a quarter million this December, and the growth trend keeps going, planning to reach Half a Million monthly visitor by this time next year.

Our First Web Documentary
We are planning on doing (May and June 2011) a Three Part Web-Documentary and multi-article

story on "How to Make it in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York", that covers the life of a person who arrives to one of those cities for the first time, and where are the places he/she needs to visit, where to arrange industry related meetings, how to take care of him/herself when booking an agent or auditions, where are the best options to stay if planning a short or mid-term stay, transportation lines, and a whole lot. (Most of the thing would be featured as text in the site, and the story will be featured through a series of short videos and interviews as a "webumentary" about the whole project investigation.

• • • • • • •

We are planning on actually going all those places and do the things someone trying to make it there should do. We will visit Studios, Theme Parks, Casting Agencies; we will meet other struggling actors, writers, web series creators, crew members, journalists. We will look for the best places to stay, to visit, to eat, to leave your resume and more. We want to watch tapings, live shows, go on tours, and show the “must” places for the entertainment industry. We want to have Round Tables with Web Series Creators and Actors to understand the challenges they face to “Make It”. We want to have the opinion of those who “Made it” so they can tip the newcomers. We want to show the beauty of those cities and good vibe of people while we are at it.

We will be sending our One Guy Cast and Crew on a One Month Journey to try and Make it In Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco. Starting in May 6th at LAX, it´s a two week journey in La La Land to experience first-hand every challenge newcomers who want to be the next big thing in Entertainment face. After that, a one week journey in The Big Apple where the challenges may be different but nonetheless big in a big city. Finally, the three part trip (and webumentary) finishes in San Francisco, the entrepreneurial promised land, with yet another week trying to make it.
