Matt Enlow Talks Structure, Prodution and Promotion for his Hit Web Series Squaresville, just Nominated for 6 IAWTV Awards

Squaresville chronicles the misadventures of two awkward, inquisitive teen girls Ether and Zelda, growing up in suburbia.  The creator/writer/director Matt Enlow, a USC grad, already has several web series under his belt including Mountain Men and Engaged.  Matt, who also works for Strike TV and Comedy Central is a master of the minisode.  In addition to the more traditional (as traditional as something on the web can be) 3-6 minute episodes of his shows, he also makes minisodes to capitalize on the click-happy landscape of the web.  These help build the world of his show with additional scripted content, offer interviews with actors and behind the scenes footage and generally get viewers involved in ways that could only happen on the web. I highly recommend minisodes as an addition to any series and Matt sets a great example of how to do it.  Matt blogs about web media at Enjoy our chat!
