AUSTIN — Zadi Diaz has established herself as one of the pioneers in original Web video, known for several shows including Epic Fu.  She has recently linked up with NextNewNetworks for series about Hollywood called, Hacking Hollywood, as reported earlier this month.

We caught up with Zadi this morning at SXSW to catch up on her new show and the difficult economics facing independent Web producers.

Although I am not in Austin, I am pleased that Daisy Whitney and her husband/producer Jeff Brooks are shooting interviews for Beet.TV

Please stay tuned for extensive coverage.
