‘Frankenstein, M.D.’ Reaches Monstrous Finale On Halloween

31 October 2014 9:42 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Two-and-a-half months after its August 19th debut, Frankenstein M.D. has arrived at its conclusion. The web series adaptation of Frankenstein's final episode has been released, and fans of the series will know what to expect. Frankenstein M.D. was born out of a partnership between Pemberley Digital (the studio behind hits like The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and Emma Approved) and PBS Digital Studios, which distributed the series as its first ever scripted program. Across 24 episodes, viewers got to know Victoria Frankenstein, a gender-swapped version of Mary Shelley's infamous doctor. At the end of the series, Victoria looks to run away with her friend Eli, though her monster shows up to throw a wrench in that plan. As with all Pemberley Digital productions, Frankenstein, M.D. is accompanied by a wealth of transmedia elements. The most interesting tie-in to the final episode is an open letter from Victoria to her medical school classmates. »

Buffer Festival To Return To Toronto With Industry Day On October 16th

25 August 2014 3:21 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

In 2013, Buffer Festival brought a YouTube-focused film festival north of the border. This year, Buffer Festival is back, and it is appealing to online video professionals with an "Industry Day" that will precede three days of screenings and meetups. The Industry Day, which was launched in partnership with the Canadian Film Centre, will go down on October 16th and will resemble the similarly-named event that occurs during the first day of Vidcon. YouTubers, multi-channel network executives, and digital businesspeople will take the stage at the Hyatt Regency Toronto and will share their thoughts on relevant topics. Presenters will include top Canadian YouTubers like Harley Morenstein of Epic Meal Time and Mitchell Moffit of ASAPScience. Some American creators--such as ShayCarl, Craig Benzine, and Frankenstein, M.D. creator Bernie Su--will also speak. “We were beyond delighted with the success of Buffer Festival last year, with the participation of dozens of YouTube creators and thousands of attendees, »

PBS And Pemberley Digital’s ‘Frankenstein, MD’ Comes Alive

19 August 2014 10:41 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

PBS Digital Studios, in partnership with Pemberley Digital, just released its first-ever series based on a story that’s nearly 200 years old. Frankenstein, MD, a modern, online video adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic novel came alive on August 19, 2014. Created by the same team who gave us The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and Emma Approved (which includes Hank Green of Vlogbrothers fame and Bernie Su), the transmedia web series introduces viewers to Victoria Frankenstein, a highly-driven woman dedicated to proving herself in the male-dominated fields of math and science. And much like in Frankenstein MD’s spiritual predecessors, fans will be able to follow Victoria’s experiments in the lab not just through video, but on her blog, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Instagram. New episodes will be released every Tuesday and Friday at 9 a.m. Pt on PBS’ YouTube channel, while extras can be found over on Pemberley Digital’s channel. »

Bernie Su’s ‘Frankenstein, M.D.’ Gets August 19th Release Date

24 July 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

The team that created The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and Emma Approved is close to releasing its latest web series adaptation of classic literature. Pemberley Digital's Frankenstein, M.D., which will bring Mary Shelley's most famous work to YouTube, will debut on August 19th through PBS Digital Studios. Frankenstein, M.D. will bring Frankenstein to the modern age by reimagining its titular doctor as a Ph.D. student named Victoria. Dr. Frankenstein's gender seems to be a calculated choice, since the majority of Pemberley Digital's fans are women. A press release regarding the series claims Victoria is "determined to prove herself in the male-dominated fields of science and medicine." Actress Anna Lore will portray Victoria, and she will be joined in the cast by SourceFed host Steve Zaragoza, who will play Igor analoge Iggy DeLacey. It's Ok To Be Smart host Joe Hanson is involved in the series as »

The Book Version Of ‘The Lizzie Bennet Diaries’ Has Arrived

24 June 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

16 months after the final episode of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, creator Bernie Su has adapted his literary web series into a book. Su and collaborator Kate Rorick have authored The Secret Diary Of Lizzie Bennet, a novel based off of Pemberley Digital's YouTube adaptation of Pride And Prejudice. The Secret Diary Of Lizzie Bennet was first announced in January, when it was given a July 1st release date. Instead, it arrived a week before that date, hitting shelves just in time for VidCon. To promote the release, the Lizzie Bennet team returned to the web series' main channel for a pair of bonus vlogs starring lead actress Ashley Clements. The goal of The Secret Diary is to appeal to both diehard Lizzie Bennet fans and newcomers who have not yet fallen in love with the clever Austen adaptation. The novel satisfies the latter group by retelling many major plot points from the web series, »

Indie Spotlight: ‘Jules and Monty’ Mixes ‘Lizzie Bennet’ With ‘Romeo And Juliet’

28 March 2014 2:38 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

For the third time in five weeks, the series featured in our Indie Spotlight adapts a classic work of fiction. This time, the target is Romeo and Juliet, and the modern twists are a vlog format and a fratty college setting. That's the one-line description of Jules and Monty, which has now completed seven episodes. The words "vlog retelling of..." will instantly make any seasoned online video fan think of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, Bernie Su's award-winning adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. In the comment section of the first episode, the Jules and Monty creative team admitted the influence of Lizzie Bennet. Jules and Monty has a few things going for it, though, that make it more than just a Lizzie Bennet clone. For starters, it eschews Lizzie Bennet's Vlogbrothers-inspired editing in favor of a less jumpy, 'shakier' style. It is also mixed in the original text more liberally. »

How The ‘Lizzie Bennet’ Team Plans To Defend Its Interactive Emmy Win

11 March 2014 4:07 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Last August, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries won an Interactive Emmy Award, adding shiny gold feathers to the caps of creator Bernie Su and transmedia director Jay Bushman. Lizzie Bennet was able to win its Emmy because of its impressive transmedia presence, which includes 35 different Twitter feeds for individual characters and a handful of spin-off vlog channels. During a panel at SXSW, Su and Bushman discussed the transmedia elements of their new series, Emma Approved, which takes social storytelling to a level beyond Lizzie Bennet. The Basics At their most basic, the transmedia elements attached to Emma Approved are similar to those of Lizzie Bennet. The main focus is still YouTube, where 35 videos have been released across two channels. Once each episode ends, the series' devoted fans take to social media platforms like Twitter, where each character posts thoughts from his or her point of view. Main character Emma Woodhouse currently has more than 16,600 followers. »
