WebTV Week in Review  (week of 4/22/12)
...transferring data now...

Last week, similar to the music video scene, there was definitely no shortage of new web series. The list of YouTube user pages I now check each week is getting ridiculous (and only keeps growing).

Chris Hardwick spread the word last week about this kickstarter campaign funding the production of a Grimm Fairy Tales animated series featuring art from renowned talents such as Bill Sienkiewicz and Alex Pardee (among others). Watch Alex break down the details about it here.


I'm not entirely sure when this short film, titled Ghild, first hit the web but it just crossed my radar last week when actress Jennifer Finnigan tweeted about it. I'd call it a must-see as it just bursts with heart.
Ghild (Directed by David Yarovesky)  [Runtime 13.41]
