          Abstract

          For decades, film, video, and television have been entertaining a global audience and delivering important information or news. However, in recent years the Internet added a novel distribution channel for film, bypassing established routes like TV broadcasts and thus, changing the way TV and film are consumed. These scripted episodic and sometimes experimental videos for the web are often labeled as webisodes. While the distribution of webisodes is mainly characterized by on-demand online streaming the act of creating this novel format is highly diverse, highly cooperative and draws heavily on information technology. This work in progress paper is a first step to better understand this community. To this end, we recruited and interviewed eight persons, four producers of traditional films and four producers of webisodes. From our data we derived a set of observations and claims that we use for discussion and future research.
