Leap Year

by Lorie Lewis Ham

This week I’m excited to have a review of Scriptwriting 2.0, Writing for the Digital Age, along with an interesting interview with one of the book’s writers, Yuri Baranovsky (who is one of the creators of my favorite web series Leap Year). A link to purchase the book can be found at the end of this post–a portion of those sales goes to help support KRL.

Thanks to my daughter I recently began watching web series and find I have fallen in love with this fairly new style of entertainment. The length of episodes (generally running from 5 to 10 minutes) is perfect for my busy lifestyle–I can sit down and take a quick break and enjoy an episode or two. What has amazed me is the incredible quality that is out there–they easily rival the quality of big budget TV.
