Last weekend was a big one for the online video industry. Not only did the feature-film adaptation of John Green’s best-selling novel “The Fault in Our Stars” open to a huge domestic audience, but Netflix premiered the second season of its critically-acclaimed dramedy “Orange Is the New Black.”

To mark the occasion, VideoInk reached out to actor/writer/producer/singer Kylie Sparks to review both the film and the Netflix series. What did she think? Well, you will have to read on to find out, but in short, they were both stellar.

In honor of Amazon’s second round of original pilots, the VideoInk team banded together (again!) to review half of shows — the “Primetime Pilots,” or the ones that your kids shouldn’t be watching. Then again, we’re not saying you should be watching all of these, either.

In other words. Hey, Amazon, better! But we’ve still got some work to do.

Noir these days is really hard to pull off. One of the oldest genres in the books, the tropes are so easily identifiable, so ingrained into our culture, that any filmmaker aspiring to do something with the form needs to be wary of falling into the trap of unintentional parody. You can have only so many hatted, quiet hero-cops before you realize it’s time to retire a character type that perfected by Humphrey Boga… Read More

Comedy pilots are incredibly hard to pull off, more so than any other genre on television. Don’t believe me?

“Destroy the Alpha Gammas” Commands Attention





It takes a very special breed of writer (and actor) to capture the stigmas and stereotypes of college, and more specifically Greek Life. Billed as a musical comedy that is an “exploration of rivalry and revenge,” “Destroy the Alpha Gammas” does a beautiful job through both the script and the acting at portraying the ridiculousness of sorority life and rivalries.

It goes without saying that “branded entertainment,” especially in the form of a multi-part web series, can be very difficult to pull off. The questions that brands and creative-types struggle with whenever working together on a project get amplified when it’s a piece of content that has a lot more investment behind it. Questions like: How much of a presence should a brand have within the series? What are ways to integrate the brand or product cleanly into the story so that viewers are not pu… Read More

For the past year, I have not eaten meat, fish, poultry, fried foods or any number of things considered by most to be yummy and crave quenching. My name is Allen, and I am a vegan member of the Engine 2 tribe. We vegans are an odd lot, not that we can be grouped together along a common denominator like redheads or left-handed pitchers. One thing vegans do share is an ongoing quest for new recipes, flavor combinations and all matters of food that will satisfy our evolving taste buds. Folks like me, wh… Read More

Ready, Fire, Aim — Here Comes ‘Quick Draw’


In Hulu’s new original series, “Quick Draw,” Nancy Hower and John Lehr deploy the tried-and-true Frankenstein school of television creation. In such a style, one pieces together mismatched pieces of previous works (some of art, some not so artful) to create a new, living, breathing entity and roll it out to the screen. Sometimes the result is monstrous; occasionally, it’s an upgraded iteration of the original goods. In the case of Hulu’s current effort to… Read More
