Manhattan Short - 2010 Finalists

This is a short Promo I did for the local theater showing this years Manhattan Short Film Festival.

2010 Finalists List

Find a Venue in Your Country

An extraordinary global event will take place the week of September 26th to October 3rd 2010 when over 100,000 people in over 200 cities across six continents gather in Cinemas, Galleries, Museums and Cafes for one purpose...to view and vote on our Finalists' Films in the Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival

Our mission is to unite audiences across all seven continents of the globe for one week via the most compelling short films submitted each year. One World One Week One Festival is emblazoned within the rings that surround the Festivals Logo and it is this mantra that sets us apart from any other film event of the year.

NOTE: MANHATTAN SHORT is NOT an ONLINE Film Festival. Films are distibuted to our individual partnering cinemas throughout the world. MANHATTAN SHORT is not a Touring or travelling Film Festival...it is the world's first Global Film Festival, taking place in over 200 cities across 6 continents during one week. For a filmmaker who wants to get their short film out there, there is no greater test then MANHATTAN SHORT.

Our partnering cinemas are situated in Asia, Australia, Europe, South America and North America, including venues in all 50 States of the United States. In 2010 we will be adding venues in Africa to the event.

YouTube Bugs Fixed and Pre Roll Ads

YouTube have finally fixed some of the bugs that have been a pin for a long time now. They have sorted out the Inbox bug, so you can tell which are your new comments. Also you now get your emails again when someone subscribes to your channel.

YouTube partners now can have pre-roll adverts on their videos. Will this be the trend for all partners to start showing pre-roll ads? It is not compulsory for them to turn on pre-rolls, lets hope they don't.

SecondLife - Porn & Gambling?

This is a response video to one Chris Pirillo did (Link below) Basically he stated that SecondLife was nothing but Porn & Gambling. I feel that this is utter rubbish and SecondLife is far more than that.

YouTube - YouTube Channel of The Week #01

Click to Tweet

In one of my last video I said I would be starting YouTube Channel of the Week and here it is.

I want to try and promote the very kind people that subscribe to my channel as many of them are content creators themselves and don't get the recognition they deserve. I am not on about promoting the like of ShayCarl or LisaNova, they are huge already, but I want to help the little peeps out there.

To qualify you must be subscribed to my channel and create your own content. I am not going to help promote people that just upload Game Screen casts or any other copyright material.

Since making my video about the new grey Playlist bar at the bottom of the YouTube pages, a lot of you have said you want to disable it forever. Well I went and did a bit of digging around and messing with code, but I figured out you don't need to do anything that hard. Simply click a link and it's gone!!!
