So another month is upon us and that means more cool new content for you to check out and maybe advertise against or, in some cases, perhaps even sponsor as a brand. With it being December I imagine that production is probably wrapping up on most things for the year and everything will probably be on the quiet side. Still, that just means we all have a bit more time to watch all the content we haven’t had time to see just yet.
Greyhounds: The Dogumentary Show
New this month is a brand sponsored show called The Dogumentary. It’s a brand sponsored series of videos created by Phil Parkin and crew at Quick Feet::
‘Greyhounds: The Dogumentary’ follows these talking dogs of all ages as they frolic as puppies, race as youths and reminisce in retirement. Woofs, barks and cheeky giggles!
Here’s a sample episode:
Of course, this is already brand sponsored, but that means it’s particularly good to advertise against.
Revision3 & Discovery Communications: DNews
Produced by Revision3 and available on YouTube, at DiscoveryNews.com, at Revision3.com and across numerous digital platforms, DNews is hosted by Anthony Carboni, Laci Green and Trace Dominguez, who act as curators of the most topical stories through three original daily video pieces. Together the DNews team makes science digestible, fun and irreverent – yet still analytical and informative.
The Charity P0rn Initiative Series
The Charity P0rn Initiative is a web series written by John Banas that we will be launching in 2013. Here’s a teaser for the new show: The C.P. Initiative – Dirty Money
The premise for the series focuses on an aspiring internet mogul who finds himself caught up in a maelstrom of lies, moral politics, money, and sex as a result of his new website www.charityporn.com, which raises a whole lot more than money.
Producer Peter Slee established the website www.charityporn.com in 2009, pursuing an unlikely marriage between Charitable Works and Adult Entertainment. Australian TV writer, John Banas recognised the dramatic potential of the website’s premise and teamed up with Slee in 2011 to develop the material into a series.

Spycology (Action Comedy)
How did Bond become so awesome in SkyFall and Casino Royale? Spy College, naturally. New featured action comedy web series Spycology follows a class of aspiring spies-in-training as they navigate the foibles of college life, ridiculous training, hand-to-hand combat, shootouts and intense live-fire simulations. In the explosive Season Premiere, a new girl in class spurs our slacking protagonist Jack to take his vocation more seriously in order to evade expulsion.
The Pickup Chicks – Episode 1 (Romantic Comedy)
In this new romantic comedy web series, Brooklyn roomies Darcy, Emma, and Jane stumble upon a brilliant idea for self-employment: why not take clueless guys out for a night on the town, and use their collective girl power to transform dunderhead dudes into dashing pickup artists on the dating scene? To their surprise, their pickup tips, advice and strategies become a smashing success. But while the The Pickup Chicks’ mission is to reinvent the perfect man, they might just find that they end up reinventing themselves and their relationships in the process. In the tradition of Sex and the City, HBO’s Girls and Dating Rules for My Future Self, creators Stacie Capone and Jason Nunes open audiences eyes to a new perspective on the experience of independent, empowered single women in New York City.
Cool Justice – Episode 1 (Comedy)
Picture Starsky & Hutch meets Reno 911, where anything can and does happen. In this hilarious new comedy web series, two larger-than-life, cryogenically frozen undercover cops (Todd Rulapaugh and Brian Groh) from the 70’s are thawed out in present day L.A. to help a hottie heiress, Zoe BenEffron (Camila Greenberg), claim her missing millions. Together the unlikely threesome are set to bust up bad guys old-school-style while following cryptic-clues left by Zoe’s eccentric billionaire-scientist-grandfather.
Not So Super – Episode 1 (Superhero Noir Drama) (This one’s mine!)
What happens when a superhero hits a midlife crisis? Vince (Christophor Rick – AKA me) is having problems in both halves of his life. At home, his marriage is crumbling, and while ‘on duty,’ he’s been feeling not so super. His lack of confidence is painfully evident, and the city is losing faith. “Not So Super” twists classic comic book archetypes into a dark indie drama.
Some Assembly Required
It’s a series of short (under 1 minute) comedic videos that highlight the awkward and embarrassing moments in life that we all struggle through on a daily basis. These are humiliating shortcomings that all humans face at one point or another throughout their week. The weekly under 60 seconds videos are a nice digestible dose of funny. www.someassemblyrequired.blog.
