Digital Video Ad Revenue Increases To $1.5 Billion In First Half Of 2014

20 October 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Digital video has proven its value to advertisers (at least in terms of where they're putting their dollars) as confirmed by a new report from the Interactive Advertising Bureau (Iab). The Internet Advertising Revenue Report found revenue from digital video advertising increased to $1.5 billion in the first half of 2014, a 13% increase over the dollar figure from the first half of 2013.

Sponsored by the Iab and conducted by PwC Us, the report studied the impact of several different types of internet advertising on marketers’ revenue streams, such as mobile and digital video. “Mobile’s continued rise speaks to consumers’ increasing reliance on smartphones and tablets, whether on-the-go or at home,” said David Silverman, a partner at PwC Us, in the release. “And, digital video too is seeing gains that reflect a new ‘viewing’ paradigm that is taking place on interactive screens, big and small.”

Animator David Silverman on 8 Early and Previously Unseen Simpsons Sketches

22 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Animator David Silverman has been with The Simpsons since the beginning — literally: He directed the first episode of the series, as well as subsequent classics “The Way We Was,” “Krusty Gets Kancelled,” and “Homie the Clown,” not to mention The Simpsons Movie and the Academy Award–nominated short The Longest Daycare. Fxx’s recent marathon and upcoming "Simpsons World" experience in the Fxnow app has reignited an interest in the show’s earliest days, so Vulture asked Silverman to share the stories behind some previously unreleased sketches and storyboards from his personal collection. Twenty-seven years later, the characters look virtually the same as they did then, an impressive feat when you consider their animation motto at the time was “done equals good.” Click through to see eight early prototypes and to read Silverman’s stories behind each of them. »

Highlights from The Simpsons Take The Bowl

15 September 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's no point of reviewing Sunday (September 14) night's The Simpsons Take The Bowl show from The Hollywood Bowl, at least not in a traditional way. Sunday's presentation was the third and final night for The Simpsons Take The Bowl and, alas, if you didn't catch one of the shows... That's it. Sorry. Timed to loosely synchronize with the classic comedy's 25th anniversary, the show's recent syndicated move to Fxx and Sunday, September 28 premiere for the new season, The Simpsons Take The Bowl was a terrific two hours of live music, singing and dancing, culminating in fireworks. The event featured an assortment of new animation tailored around the venue, but also included classic "Simpsons" bits including Homer's plummet down the Springfield Gorge, Homer's gambol through The Land of Chocolate and the transition from the Ajax Steel Mill into The Anvil. I'm not sure that all of my favorite "Simpsons" musical moments were acknowledged. »

If you caught any of Fxx’s epic 12-day Simpsons marathon, then you must have seen at least one great musical moment. Now Springfield is getting the big Hollywood salute it deserves with three performances of The Simpsons Take the Bowl.

Hosted by Hank Azaria (and the countless characters he voices on the show), the event—featuring the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra—highlights some of the sitcom’s best song parodies and musical scoring. Also on tap: Special guests, both in person and in animated form. Here are 6 of the most memorable moments from Friday night’s opening concert:
