Video blogs about the entertainment industry
April 21, 2006 3:35 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for video blogs that discuss the entertainment industry (film, music, stage, video games).

But I'm having a hard time finding them...

I like what Variety does --even if it's not per se a vlog... (

...but their postings are kind of rare... I don't know of any other video stream in this category...

I would like to watch (or even listen to, if it's just audio) interviews or short clips that are about production, industry news, sales, festivals, conferences, etc.

Trade magazine stuff... only in vlog format... with new entries daily !...

I would also be interested in film and music reviews done by vloggers...

Any suggestions ?

I know it's not exactly what you're looking for, but LA NPR station KCRW's show The Business is podcasted every Monday night. It's on iTunes as well as the kcrw website and kinda awesome. Not a vlog or blog even, and it's only once a week, but it's a rather brilliant show. And I'm sure you already know about gawker sites for Hollywood and for video games. Again, not at all what you're asking for, but that's the best I can do.

This might also be not what you're looking for, but Sound Opinions is a dueling-critic music show (think Roger & Ebert) that's produced by Chicago Public Radio. It's geared more towards rock fans than industry folk, but they cover the music news in the first ten minutes or so of most episodes. They have an audio podcast.

Searching for "entertainment industry" podcasts in the iTunes music store came up with a handful of results. I didn't check 'em all, but the Hollywood Reporter seemed to be on target, only it's audio.

That should be Siskel & Ebert.

Coolfer is an outstanding musicblog with an industry slant.

WARNING, SELF-LINK: I co-write/direct/edit a weekly video "webisode" for the independent movie theater I work for. It's called MoxieTV, and you can check out the most recent episode along with the archives here.

It's basically a promotional tool for the theater. We talk about the movies we have coming up that week, show trailers, and throw in some variety to keep it funny/fresh.

It's sort of what you're looking for, I guess.
