Let's nominate TWBB for a Streamy! (Public nominations are closed)

Post  Mr Greeb on Mon Nov 30, 2009 7:27 am

I recently(read: about half an hour ago) found out that there is an award, called the Streamy Award, which "recognize[s] outstanding achievement for shows produced originally for broadband distribution". Now, I don't think that anyone in this forum thinks that There will be Brawl is anything less than outstanding, nor that these guys, after so much amazing work, doesn't deserve something amazing in return.

I haven't read the details, but I think it is possible to nominate them between some date in December and some date in January. I say we do all we can to get TWBB nominated! And then, everything we can to help them WIN!

*Dramatic speech over*

So... who else than me thinks this is a good idea?

I'm actually kinda surprised TTWB doesn't have a nomination already since it appears on the Escapist and all Neutral
Sure I'd nominate it!! Very Happy

Good to know! As soon as I can, I'll be creating a Nominate TWBB for the Streamys-facebook group, but I'm really busy at the moment, so it'll have to be in a few hours.

I haven't really been able to find out how and where to nominate, but I don't think we're able to nominate just yet. As I said, I think it's only possible between December and January. Right now I'm off to training, so I won't be able to check stuff out for the next few hours, but the website is www.streamys.org. Let me know if you find out anything.

Ok, last comment before I leave: You don't need facebook, but it's kinda a good way to spread the word, don'tcha think?

Besides, this is like, the real deal. This isn't some amateur-stuff, these guys are sposored by Kodak and lotsa other folks. The only way to vote is through their website.

I am absolutely down. Not being made in the same year as Dr. Horrible means we might actually have a chance! (They swept all the web awards last year, or so they say)

EDIT: After looking at the process and organization behind the Streamys, I am a little doubtful that our little webseries will be able to make it. That being said, it never hurts to try, and there is no shame in pushing for something you believe in.

The streamy winners and nominees are decided by the International Academy of Web Television. Seeing as how no one here (most likely) is part of that organization, any attempts we make will be pretty grassroots. The one that we can do at this point is spread the word about There Will Be Brawl. The more people who are part of the TWBB bandwagon, the more attention this series may get. Find pockets of the internet that you know may be receptive to this series and to this effort (Smash World Forums, All is Brawl, and Escapist Magazine come to mind). As this series gains popularity and momentum, we increase the chances of the right people taking notice.

Maybe, idk. I probably don't really know what I'm talking about here.

Ho ho ho, my dear Surgepox, do you really think me a bringer of false hope? I might not know the specifics, but I always do a little research before I do... well, anything. Here's from the "Rules"-section:

"Anyone may nominate a web show or individual for consideration during the Public Nominations period. Please feel free to nominate yourself or your own show. For each category, the nominee with the greatest number of nominations will automatically become an Official Nominee. The remaining Official Nominees will be determined by members of the International Academy of Web Television, which will review all submissions meeting the minimum entry guidelines listed above. The Academy will also select the winner of each category."

- http://www.streamys.org/rules.shtml

The "minimum entry guidelines" is that it's a webseries with at least three episodes.

Now, the idea behind this whole thread was that this is probably the only way, at least that I can come up with, we, the fans, can really repay these people for making this frikkin' awesome series. But if we're to pull this off, more or less the whole forum needs to vote. Not that it's a hard task, it's just voting, which is to say one little click with the mouse, after all, but we'll have to be quite the crowd nonetheless, and we probably need to vote more than once. If just four or five people are going to vote, then it's quite pointless, really. So I really need know if the forum is up for it; if not, then ok, that's cool, I just want to know if there's a point for me to try to make it happen.

*second dramatic speech over*

So... whaddya think, guys and gals?

I'm in. If we ALL try to recruit as many people as possible, I think we probably have a chance. We should try recruiting on The Escapist too.

Well Mr Greeb, this is probably one of the times I am delighted to have been mistaken. We may need to push really hard to get that nomination, but I think we can do it. I have some good news, though, I've had a talk with some of the members of SSBF (The forum we fought against in the forum SSBB battle) and some of the mods there are down for helping us out. We may be able to get a nice chunk of their forum working with us. I HIGHLY reccommend putting the call out on SWF and AiB, and for sure on the Escapist. These seem like great places to find people who are down for helping us out.

Also, let's be clear on which categories we are nominating for.

Awesome! Way to go!

I'm usually not much of a forum-goer; what is SWF and AiB?

The Facebook group "Let's nominate There will be Brawl for a Streamy!" is now founded, and I hope that people will join it as soon as possible, lest I'll look like an idiot with a seemingly random FB-group with no members, since I haven't told any of my friends about this stunt*bows head in shame*.

Here are the current awards:

Programming

* Best Dramatic Web Series
* Best Comedy Web Series
* Best Hosted Web Series
* Best News/Politics Web Series
* Best Reality Web Series
* Audience Choice

Directing

* Best Directing for a Comedy Web Series
* Best Directing for a Dramatic Web Series

Writing

* Best Writing for a Comedy Web Series
* Best Writing for a Dramatic Web Series

Acting

* Best Male Actor in a Comedy Web Series
* Best Female Actor in a Comedy Web Series
* Best Male Actor in a Dramatic Web Series
* Best Female Actor in a Dramatic Web Series
* Best Ensemble Cast in a Web Series
* Best Guest Star in a Web Series

Hosting

* Best Web Series Host

Technical and Craft

* Best Editing in a Web Series
* Best Cinematography in a Web Series
* Best Art Direction in a Web Series
* Best Visual Effects in a Web Series
* Best Animation in a Web Series
* Best Original Music for a Web Series
* Best Ad Integration in a Web Series
* Best Artistic Concept in a Web Series

With it being quite late in Norway and all(00:30, ok, not that late, but I'm tired nonetheless:p), I haven't really gone through all of them, but I'd say that we should at least go for both Best Comedy and Best Dramatic(well, if it's dramatic as in Dr. Horrible-dramatic and not as in... I dunno, The assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford-dramatic). But as for the rest, I'll leave up to you folks for now.

One way or the other, we have to get this series nominated for best writing. Think about it; it's somehow able to stick to film noir style while incorporating lines like 'I'm sorry, Luigi, but your princess is in another castle'. We've got great lines, so I don't see how we can't get this nominated for a writing award.

Also, can we push our luck with the best ensemble cast award? I don't think we can really single out any one actor here, as there are so many people that it's almost mind-boggling.

Anyway, definitely best writing. The writing is what makes the series amazing. Also, I think best ensemble cast could possibly be a good attempt, because there are NO bad actors/actresses in the entire series.

I assume that Public Nominations will start and end around same time last year, if not, near it. Cause I have been wondering this.
(Last year's):

Public Nominations Open: Friday, December 19
Public Nominations Close: Friday, January 23
Also, making an announcement on the TWBB Steam page. I'm also gonna try to get support from the TF2 group/forums i go to, but since I'm still relatively new, I don't want to be real blatant with advertising. I'll figure a way.

This is absolutely brilliant, guys!! We've been hoping to get in with the Streamy Awards since we attended last year, and I think we would have a fair shot should we get our foot in the door. I know our New Media agent is on the submission panel, so there's a good chance we may get seen, but anything/everything you guys can do to spread the word once public submissions are up helps TREMENDOUSLY.

Oh, please, stop it, you're making us blush. Embarassed
Seriously though; it's the least we can do.

Now, to everyone: I think the easiest is to make the FB-group the "Main base of operations" or whatever, since most people are on fb, and it's easier not to be spread across different forums. To make it sounds less pompous: I think we should tell people that the group is where you get to know what to do.

Also, If someone volunteered to be a second admin in the fb-group, I'd appreciate it.

Paul's head would explode with too much ego if this happened and then any grills he's supposed to get in for Episode 10 would be not be gotten in...so yes, Ansem has the right idea...
