Web television, which are shows filmed and released only on the internet, are gaining in popularity. It goes along with the DIY (do-it-yourself) mentality, of shooting, editing and posting things yourself. Recently, I had a local web show creator contact me about his show.
Derek James Hauk, 25, of Warsaw, Ill., went to college at Quincy University and recently lost his job, so he thought a web series was a good way to fill his time. He started “Music Video Theatre 3000″ about a year ago and it runs on AudibleUnderwear.com.
I checked out a couple of his episodes and I must say, it is creative, silly and fun. Each show must be watched all the way through to catch all of the craziness, so it is definitely worth checking out.
Hauk answers some questions about the show below:
MARTIN-CATE: Why did you start the web series?
HAUK: I had a full-time position teaching music at a small school south of Jacksonville, Ill. I lost it and had to move back home. Unable to find other full-time employment, I decided I needed something to occupy myself with and since I was a fan of other online shows, it was an easy decision to start my own.
MARTIN-CATE: What inspires your show?
HAUK: My inspirations are my love of music and my time in the Quincy University drama club. While I was at QU, the members of the Brother Sun Sister Moon Players encouraged me to write plays, so I’m very comfortable with scripting the series. Probably the most well-known of the online shows that I draw inspiration from would be the Angry Video Game Nerd.
MARTIN-CATE: Please describe the series.
HAUK: Every episode reviews a music video and finds humor in all the strange things artists do to try and grab our attention and each episode is part of an ongoing story with recurring characters all played by myself. There area also cameos from other online hosts and even the occasional cliffhanger.
MARTIN-CATE: What are your plans for the future of the web series?
HAUK: I will be branching out into reviewing more movies in the second year, and also trying to include more musical analysis in each video. I also hope to upgrade the camera and special effects eventually, and make the episodes feel more like short films.
MARTIN-CATE: What can viewers expect from the show?
HAUK: People can expect a lot of mostly clean humor, a lot of wacky characters and even a little bit of education. If you’ve ever sat through a movie cracking jokes to your friends the whole time, you’ll feel right at home.
“Music Video Theatre 3000″ can be seen anytime at AudibleUnderwear.com or on YouTube. Also, a teaser of the series featuring “I’m Not Okay,” by My Chemical Romance is below:
