The Awesome Geek is a creature of the internet and loves all kinds of web content out there. Web video is a very deep lake of moving pictures, it can be quite hit and miss with five rubbish videos for every decent one. However when web video gets it right, the results are phenomenal. Very Mary Kate is a perfect example of a top class web show that is worth your attention. Every other internet video producer should sit up and take note because Elaine Caroll the writer, producer, creator and performer of Very Mary Kate is doing everything right.
Each episode of very Mary Kate clocks in at in or around one minute. The internet is filled with hyper mega ADD people who need their attention grabbed, held and then quickly released. Very Mark Kate is snappy, witty and hilarious. The average user decides if they want to watch a video on the internet within the first ten seconds. By the time you’re ten seconds into an episode of Very Mary Kate you’re nearly halfway there, so it’s easy to see it out to the end.
The show is brilliantly written. Carroll is no stranger to producing video for the web and her scripts are all gold. Very Mary Kate is a fictional biography of the daily goings on in the skinny, whiney, shallow world of Mary-Kate Olsen. Carroll pushes one half of the power house Olsen twins to her stereotypical limits, and hilarity ensues. Each episode is filled with great stingers and one liners that easily fit into 140 characters along with a bit.ly link that have allowed Very Mary Kate to spread like the viral gold that it is.
The show is simple and professional. It is edited very well and something an awesome geek would recommend all his friends to watch. Embedded above are the first two episodes. Very Mary Kate updates every Monday and Thursday.
