The curse and boon of our industry is its ease of distribution. If you can produce a video, it’s up in as long as it takes for YouTube to process it. The curse comes because with a more typical path of distribution there are people who will look at your show and consider if it really should be made. (Of course, that’s its own double-edged sword; great shows will be overlooked because an executive ate a ham sandwich instead of his usual egg salad that day.)

It is today that I must admit that I stand corrected. I will say that it takes some extreme measures in order to shake me up, but Daniel Reininghaus’ Eyes Beyond has done exactly that.
