A group of us with some video experience wanted to do a TV show about contemporary trends so we got an investor and put together a short pilot. We showed it to some TV companies. Everybody liked it and one TV executive even said they might consider it next year or the year after. The TV world moves like a dinosaur swimming in molasses.
While we were waiting for the big break we realized we could have our show right here on the web. All we needed to do was to upload our stories. It took minutes. And now we have an audience. And our investor is not so unhappy anymore.
