Original Web Series, Added By You!
With a production budget of $2.5 million, the media blitz, a Hollywood star, the fourth most visited site in the world, Electric City, the adult-themed animated web series produced by and starring Tom Hanks failed to live up to the hype.
The series, which debuted in July on Yahoo isn't being watch, isn't being talked about, and is pretty much forgotten... and Yahoo is still sitting on more episodes waiting to hit the web.
One thing about hype is when you don't live up to it you go away fast!
Aspiring and veteran web series makers, there's something to be learned here: Having a celebrity attached, million dollar budget, and sites like Yahoo behind a project might attract publicity and hype, but not necessarily an audience.
Something to think about!
