FX will turn podcast hit ‘Welcome to Night Vale’ into a TV show

It’s not hard to see why FX made the move. Popular narrative-driven podcasts like Night Vale frequently have rich stories and large numbers of passionate fans, but they also tend to operate on shoestring budgets even with touring shows involved. TV producers can snap up the rights at a relatively modest cost but still get plenty of quality source material. – Jon Fingas, Engadget http://engt.co/2khf3FN

The warrant enabled the ATF to carry out the search, during which agents confiscated over 50 firearms, drug paraphernalia, and more drugs, possibly butane honey oil. No illegal explosives were found on the property. – Adam Clark Estes, Gizmodo http://ift.tt/2wvlhtV

Why Star Trek Continues Violating the Fan Film Guidelines is GOOD for Fan Films!

So how does Star Trek Continues violating the Star Trek Fan Film Guidelines help all fan films? Well, it just supports what we at Axanar have known for a while. Axanar was sued because we didn’t look like a fan film. Not because we made “profit” (we didn’t) or that we built a “for-profit studio” (we didn’t…Star Trek: New Voyages did that), both reasons made up by people who don’t know what they are talking about, but because Axanar looked like it came from the studio. – Alec Peters, Axanar http://ift.tt/2rAFM2l

CamSoda wants you to broadcast your life, sex optional

It’s hard to say whether the free camera, internet and $200 a month is too much or too little compensation for broadcasting your life. On shows like Big Brother, producers intervene to add drama to everyday events, but most real people’s day-to-day lives are probably pretty dull. In other words, you might spend tons of time and money to watch something juicy, and end up with nothing. – Steve Dent, Engadget http://engt.co/2sDniSV

STAR TREK CONTINUES becomes a CBS All Access AFFILIATE!

Apparently, Star Trek Continues was simply contacted by a division of CBS (likely CBS Interactive or else someone in marketing) and offered the option of becoming a CBS All Access Affiliate, promoting subscriptions to the network’s streaming service through online banners on their startrekcontinues.com website. […] Some fans raised an eyebrow when they noticed the words “invited to join” in the STC announcement. But according to James Hams of trekfanproductions.com, “Trekgeeks, TrekZone and STC were asked to be affiliates…these 3 have like thousands of people to help pull in new signups.” – Author Jonathan Lane, Fan Film Factor http://ift.tt/2qjFE9K
