  • MMN Season 2 ep 004 Crossing Lines

    I talk with Charlie Breit about his Branded entertainment project "The Lines". He's also putting together a meetup on Thursday September 29th to bring together local Chicago filmmakers. "The Lines" is branded entertainment sort of "The Hills" meets driver education. Allstate Insurance is the brand and safe driving is the message. Charlie cleverly weaves young adult situations with driving mishaps. Each episode ends with nice message about safe driving. The production quality is great and he's found brought together some great local actors. The project is worth watching and a good sign that brands in the Midwest might be looking for opportunities to get their messages out in different ways.

  • MMN S2 ep003 Space Hospital a Galaxy of fun

    Yes I like cheese especially on pizza, hamburgers, fries, hotdogs and yes some of my content. Check out what one of the co-creators of Space Hospital Rob Poe has to say about making a series on a shoestring and still making sure everyone has fun doing it. Space Hospital has found that balance of cheese, story, camp and fun. It's a fine line to walk and not many people can do it. You can try to look good and not pull it off or not now how to make it campy and just make it look bad. This kind of work needs the right ideas and the right style and Poe has manages to make it a reality.
