With over 176,000 subscribers and more than 70 million views on its YouTube channel alone, My Damn Channel is one of the internet's more popular destinations for comedy.

Founder/CEO Rob Barnett just announced the launch of the My Damn Channel Comedy Network, a multi-channel (McN) network that will expand Mdc's library to hundreds of comedy programs distributed across several YouTube channels and on MyDamnChannel.com.

My Damn Channel to Develop Cartoon Comedy ‘View U’

My Damn Channel Founder and CEO Rob Barnett recently told us to expect “more” online original programming to come out of his new media studio (aka the four-year-old home of such online video hits like You Suck at Photoshop, Wainy Days, and Gigi). Barnett and company just found the first of that “more” this past week at the Just for Laughs Comedy Conference in Montreal, Canada. Toronto’s very own award-winning animation and production shop Smiley Guy Studios landed a development deal with My Damn Channel for winning a pitch contest at the conference. Their interactive cartoon comedy View U - “about four college friends who do anything and everything to get ten million clicks of fame” - impressed an esteemed panel of judges including Barnett, Ben Relles of YouTube Next, Spencer Griffin of CollegeHumor, and Eric Mortensen of blip.tv.

Blip.TV Stimulates Video Creators, Moves to Monthly Payouts

Check week is a big deal at blip.tv. The online video hosting, advertising, and distribution network splits ad revenue - the tune of $10 to $15 CPMs - 50/50 with content creators who upload their web shows to the blip.tv platform and engage all of blip's advertising options. Every quarter, the company sends checks to those content creators who've accumulated at least $25 (and as much as $143,000) in revenue from the opt-in advertising program over the past three months. It makes for a lot of checks and a lot of happy web video makers. But what's better than check week once a quarter? How about check week once a month?

Fnb Innovator: Susan Miller and Tina Cesa Ward

This week FilmNewsBriefs spoke with Susan Miller and Tina Cesa Ward the creators of web series “Anyone But Me.” We discuss how they built their audience, and how they are moving forward with Season 3.

FilmNewsBriefs: Please tell us briefly about “Anyone But Me.”

Tina Cesa Ward: It launched in December of 2008. We have two seasons of 20 episodes and a bunch of other videos that we’ve released in between episodes and seasons, from promotional videos to videos from celebrities who love the show to fun videos that highlight the characters and storylines of Abm in shorter forms.

Susan Miller: “Anyone But Me” is a scripted drama about gay, straight and multi-ethnic youth struggling with identity and modern relationships. There’s something so tangibly raw and universally felt in the dynamics of people growing into themselves that everyone can relate to these stories. But, it is also a show of the moment.
