Rocketboom, the pioneering video blog that led the way for episodic online video programming, has launched its first new show, Pop17 with Sarah Meyers.
I spoke with Andrew earlier today. He explained that working with Sarah is the first step in expanding the Rocketboom business with other programs.
Although Sarah is not an employee of Rocketboom and retains creative control over her show, Andrew and the clever Rocketboom crew are providing production and distribution services, he explained.
Earlier this week, she was at the Beet.TV headquarters to shoot this really great piece about the purple channel and me. (I posted it above.) We talked about how I got started making films as a teenager.
Nice camera work Sarah. Great editing job by Mary Matthews.
