I was not able to make the meeting last night for the IAWTV due to Guild shooting.  I was very upset not to be able to be there, not only because I am a member of the IAWTV board, but because I am a passionate member of the web video community.  I am 100% invested in the idea of a legitimate organization dedicated to forwarding the profile, standards and legitimacy of web video.  I believe that the IAWTV IS that organization.  It is in its infancy, but it is the seed that we need to work with, and grow it into a thriving representative of the world of web video.

After the Streamy Awards debacle, the community has gone through a period of turmoil, and rightly so.  I have generally stayed out of it publicly, which has caused some people to wonder where my voice was. (Generally, it was on conference calls and email chains between the board, but that’s something I can’t speak on in specifics, except to say those on the board ARE aware and active of not only the stakes, but of the problems that need to be addressed.)   I hope this blog clarifies a few of the points I would have brought up for discussion were I able to attend last night.  To be clear, is not the official opinion of the board at large.

THE MISSION:

The IAWTV organization’s #1 priority needs to be creating an identity outside of the Streamys.  This has been my mantra from day one.  Personally, I would advocate becoming the IFC for web video content, not aiming to become the Academy of Motion Pictures, but I think the best way to figure out how to best service the academy members is to hear what the MEMBERS would like to see from the IAWTV themselves.  The suggestions should be surveyed and implemented.  And it needs to be done ASAP for the good of the community.  If you are an IAWTV member, please know that your voice needs to be heard NOW and register at the IAWTV forums.

The only way we can figure out what this organization needs is through dialogue, which has been sadly lacking up to this point.  There are many divergent needs in the space that I would never think about, like points included in a blog by Jim Louderback about standards and viewer count, and NUMEROUS others that I have tagged in my Delicious account.  I think that the sheer number of interested people clamoring for change shows that a legitimate organization is NEEDED, but we need to formulate concrete steps to make the IAWTV a value-adding organization.  And it needs to be done QUICKLY, not at an old-media glacial pace.  Let’s dive in and figure it out.  We need leadership to get through this.  If you have an opinion, voice it.

THE BOARD:

There are brilliant people on the board of the IAWTV.  However, I believe there is a problem in the composition.  In my opinion, the board needs to reflect a wider range of web video interests, including more content creators, and a broader cross-section of them.  Web video is very hard to define, and the opinions of everyone from YouTube vloggers to network-backed web series should be heard and represented. Whether this means a change in leadership or addition of board seats, I believe it needs to happen, again, quickly, in order to regroup and proceed forward. Personally, I would be 100% willing to step down from the board and be merely an advocating member if it would help get this organization on track.

THE AWARDS:

Awards are fun.  Everyone loves a party.  But at the end of the day it’s about the work.   I think the overall vision of the IAWTV needs to come BEFORE all this wrangling for the Streamys name, or any other planned celebration.  I do feel like the IAWTV needs to have SOME awards show, because the community needs a legitimate way of recognizing excellence in web video outside of awards like the Webbys, which is for-profit and prohibitively expensive for the average web video creator to enter.  What DOES need to be worked out by the non-profit IAWTV is solving some of the problems that were inherent in this year’s awards procedures themselves; like IAWTV membership requirements, nomination categories, and nomination procedures.   The technical production, name and venue should be the last thing the IAWTV focuses on.  The wrangling over the Streamys as a name and event is just stalling what should be the focus of the IAWTV, which is a structuring of vision and leadership.

I don’t aim to solve any problems with these points, but to encourage dialogue, and express faith in the fact that we can pull together and use the recent events as a make or break wake-up call to get organized.

    Well said. And thank you. Not because I am a member, but because I’ve served on boards like that and having someone of your caliber looking out for the content producers is so important to community. As usual, you shine.

    If I may: when a community doesn’t trust their leaders, they are in no sensible meaning of the word being led. It’s earned. By acts, by transparency, and by clarity.

    Good luck. You do us proud.

  • The IAWTV needs to decide if they are going to operate as an independent non profit company or not. If they choose to fully take on that role then it would be beneficial for them to have 100% ownership and control of any awards that they participate in.

    However, I agree that before that can happen the IAWTV needs to get its house in order.

    If I had to pick one board member that I would not like to see step down it would be you, Felicia. You are a respected voice from the core of the community and someone who has demonstrated your commitment to web series and the development of the community through your actions.

    What we need is a well balanced Board composed of a team with the skills needed to run and develop the IAWTV as a non profit company. We need a Board that understands the importance of being independent and fair. We need a Board that understands the importance of “putting the W back in www.”

    Once, and only once, their is some sort of core operating non profit in place that is capable of running events should we turn our attention to how the IAWTV should create and run an awards show that can benefit the entire web series community.

  • Felicia,

    Thanks for taking the time to let the community and IAWTV membership in on your thoughts. We don’t know each other well, but our brief conversations have more than convinced me of your intelligence, drive, and passion for the web video industry. Personally, I think it would be a tragedy for you to step down from the board. To me, and I think to a lot of the community, you’re the embodiment of what the IAWTV leadership needs more – not less – of.

    I can only imagine what it feels like to find yourself as the face of this industry; a role not sought for but thrust upon you as a consequence of your success helping to pioneer a new medium. I have, and continue to, admire the grace and professionalism with which you handle yourself in that light.

    As the industry and the IAWTV moves forward, we are all faced with choices and decisions that will undoubtedly have a significant impact on the future of all of our lives and careers. For my part, I’ve listed some ideas for how the IAWTV could broaden its focus beyond the Streamy awards to better serve us, the community it represents. You can find them here: http://disq.us/dmhrr

    I think we all know there’s a rough road ahead. You’re one of the reasons that it’s such an enjoyable journey despite the potholes and hazards. I had a great time working with you on Justin & Alden (your scenes in next week’s episode look amazing, btw), and I’m most definitely looking forward to seeing Season 4 of The Guild.

    Best,

    I followed tweets from yesterday’s meeting, listened to a few podcasts and have read this blog. Based on all of these I have to agree that the biggest problem with the IAWTV has been lack of comminications and discussion of what its mission is. Of the people on the board, I believe that you are really the only content creator. The other members are content infrastructure providers. In many way this might seem to follow the old academy awards but I would disagree. They started as content creators that turned into the studios. They did understand that the product would define the business and they went about promoting the product. Yes there was infighting but that was business not the product.

    The second Streamy failed to promote the business and so it flopped. There has been too much finger pointing going on, and having a board disagreement go public was incorrect. However one point mentioned was the lack of content creators on the board. I have to agree, and based on the meeting yesterday some changes may occur. I hope more creators are put on the board.

    There was too much thought in trying to add tight controls, and a rigid structure. The IAWTV is too young for that and these will strangle the innovation that is needed. Lastly the biggest thing is that the Chairman failed to deliver a true Mission Statement. Without that everything else points to lack of communications. That must be the starting point.

    I am not a member of the IAWTV, but do wish it well. Keep a strong voice on the board, and hopefully it will lead them to solutions that help everyone and web content.

  • Don

    I agree with everything you’ve said here, Felicia.

    I think, however, the biggest problem is something no one really wants to talk about openly because of the ramifications. There are three entities here, two of which are working against the other: Tubefilter and the Streamys (both for-profit companies) versus the IAWTV (the non-profit.)

    The IAWTV was created by the officers/owners of Tubefilter (and in extension, the Streamys) as a way to legitimize the awards. Tubefilter realized early on that to be THE established long-term legitimate representation of the Web content creators it needed a seperate entity (like an academy.) However, to retain control – and thus the ability to continually profit from the awards – they made the Streamys its own LLC, which they own.

    Now logically, it would have been better for the IAWTV to own “The Streamys,” instead of just being the non-profit which picked the winners. But then that would have taken control out of their hands, giving the IAWTV the right to chose whoever they want to produce the Streamys and therefore profit from the awards show.

    After this years Streamys and the subsequent Web site with its “Manifesto,” I started looking deeper into the players and situation surrounding the Streamys. (I was a journalist for many years before switching to non-profit PR so things like this interest me.) The single most disturbing thing I found was the fact that five of the 12 members of the IAWTV board were the five owners of Tubefilter and the owners and producers of the Streamys. In effect, members of the board of a non-profit were profiting from their involvement/dealings with the non-profit. If no money changed hands from IAWTV to the Streamys, it’s at the least unethical. If money did change hands, it could be illegal and cost the IAWTV its nonprofit status if the state found out.

    As an example: I helped start a non-profit missing children center years ago. I was one of three founding members, thus the three original members of the board. The three of us all had different experience in the nonprofit field (one – administration, one – casework, me – PR.) We all volunteered our time for the first month as we did two important things: 1) find funding and 2) find more board members. After a month, we had found five more board members who we voted in. Then we resigned from the board. Those five board members then voted to hire us into our positions (as well as approve some contracts with bookkeepers, etc.)

    We could not be hired as employees, and thus benefit financially from the non-profit, as members of the board. That five member board was well within its rights to not hire one (or all of us) even though we had started the charity. As a matter of fact, after several years, our funding took a substantial hit and I and another founding member were laid-off because we had two of the largest salaries. (The third founding member planned to quit within two months anyway to return home to North Carolina.) The charity – to survive – downsized tremendously, changed it focus and became an entity that ran with a low-paid director and a handful of volunteers.

    The point of this is that no one on the board should financially benefit from decisions made by the board. Yet five members of the board do as producers of the Streamys. (As a matter of fact, they are double-dipping as I assume they are paid as show producers and then split profits from the awards shows as the owners of Streamys LLC also.)

    When I first read the “Manifesto” (now called the “Proposal,” as I’m guessing a PR person told them that was a terrible word choice), I wondered why they were calling for there to be a long-term agreement between the Streamys and the IAWTV… especially after how horribly this year’s event went. But now it’s obvious. It’s the five people who own Tubefilter and the Streamys. And it’s an attempt to profit from this for five to ten years to come, even after this year’s debacle.

    Not until the IAWTV owns the name “The Streamys,” or creates its own award to represent, will this be resolved. Personally, it would be easier to just start anew with a different name and award. I don’t see the Tubefilter folks giving up rights to the name of the Streamys without a protracted fight and I think the name “The Streamys” are besmurched anyway after this year’s event. With its own award, the IAWTV would have control over who produces the awards show.

    In any event, I hope things work out for the IAWTV for the good of the Web community.

    I’m just a fan so I have nothing useful to contribute ^_^

  • jeffbuddhabelly

    Your comments and ideas are intelligently articulated. I am not a member of the IAWTV, but I do understand the frustrations that you feel. As someone who has several times been involved in creating or changing organizations, I know firsthand how difficult it is to get three people to agree, much less 10 or more. Most people focus on their own areas of concern without really ever understanding someone else’s point of view. Taking these disparate viewpoints and shaping them into a meaningful and practical Mission Statement takes good leadership and the ability to compromise. Everyone needs to feel that he or she has been given a fair chance to be heard with a legitimate opportunity to make an impact on the final organizational philosophy. Sometimes it’s no easier than walking a tightrope without a net. Nonetheless, be persistent.

    Complicating the process for you is the economic fact that the content providers existed before most of the content creators, unlike at the beginning of the motion picture industry. Content creators have certainly pushed the medium to greater levels, but they are still working in mostly pre-established distribution channels. Many of these providers are also owned by large corporations with deep pockets and the desire to control as much of the market as they can. This will always hinder the IAWTV. That is clearly reflected in the current Board make-up.

    I would suggest that in addition to the ideas you have already mentioned (i.e. better communication within the Board and between the Board and the IAWTV members, diversity in the make-up of the Board of Directors, and the over-reliance on awards as a substitute for substance) the IAWTV consult with non-web content voices. There are certain things that are always going to happen during the organization development process that other people have already tackled and resolved. Outside consultants can offer opinions and suggestions that might be lost when the only people involved in the development process are already heavily invested in certain outcomes that favor them and their products.

    Everyone involved in developing the IAWTV has a long road ahead of them. As you have clearly and concisely pointed out, there is still a lot of work to be done on many fronts. It is made even more difficult by the amount of work all of the independent content creators already have in making the webcasts/series/video blogs/etc. that necessitated the creation of the IAWTV in the first place. It is here that the content distributors have the edge. However, don’t give up. In the end, the fight will be worth it.

    It’s late, I’ve had several beers, and my 4-year-old nephew who is visiting me with my parents to see the last launch of Atlantis is going to be jumping on me in about five hours, so I need to keep this short…

    Please spell out your acronyms the first time you use them. IAWTV? IFC? MEMBERS? DOES? BEFORE? QUICKLY?

    Ok, it’s only the first two of those I didn’t know…

    • IAWTV = International Association of Web Television – a relatively young organization formed initially to vote on the Streamy Awards (web video’s Oscars) but that is now, for lack of a better alternative, being asked to broaden its focus and address industry issues. Felicia is one of the IAWTV’s 11 board members.

      IFC = Independent Film Channel – a cable channel that began in the 90’s having a focus on showing independent films and which has expanded to become an advocate of indie film. IFC’s annual Independent Spirit Awards are held right before the Oscars every year. Fun fact, The Hurt Locker won best picture at the Spirit awards a whole year before that movie won its Oscars.

    For what it’s worth (coming from a complete stranger), sadly, the most appropriate people for leadership (and who are best able to endure the challenge of enacting needed but painful change) are those who see what needs to be done, but don’t want to push their own agenda for fear of stiffling others. They tend to not take it lightly or for granted.

    It’s easy to be in charge when you just push what you want and thus never suffer from guilt or doubt that someone else might have a better idea. It’s a lot harder to be the type of leader who can include others in their vision (because their vision is the inclusion of other points of view). But in the end, agenda drivers will leave when people stop following them, and vacillators will be driven from their position due to the inertia they create. But if you know what needs to be done and you care enough about the organisation that you can’t abandon it, then you should step up and take command. Yes, it’s time consuming, yes gratitude will be inversely proportional to the all-too-ready criticisms from the cheap seats. But if you care enough, you just can’t sit by and wait for that knight on a white horse. That person is you.

    It’s taken me years to accept that maybe I actually know what I’m talking about when it comes to the groups that matter to me most. It has taken even longer to accept that I have an obligation to use that knowledge and experience to make the group work better. I’ve thought many times how great it would be if someone stepped up and just did X or Y or even just showed some leadership that others could follow. But in the end, there’s only me. If there was someone else, they would have appeared by now. 🙁

    So, far from stepping down, consider stepping up. You won’t thank yourself for it, but it may be the best thing you could do.

    (I’ll step down from the pulpit now, thanks for listening. :))

    Felicia, Well said!

    I have been hovering around the idea of joining the International Academy of Web Television (IAWTV) for several months. But as a Newb to the web-series industry, I find no value in membership.

    While I am sure there is some value somewhere, it is not apparent. There is no functional recruitment system that explore the benefits of membership and the information on the IAWTV website suggests that the organization only exists to select awards for the Streamys.

    If that is the case then it’s a very limited organization.

    IAWTV needs transparency and the first step in doing this is to open membership to the organization. Limiting the organization to paid membership only breeds exclusivity and as a community of web broadcaster who generally post their content for free, paid membership seems a bit odd to me.

    I have to say that I really love the work Jeff did on his 15 steps. AMAZING work dude! He’s right the organization could be so much more valuable.

    My suggestion is to open membership and focus on recruitment. Building and sustaining a community of people who are passionate about the web industry should be a main focus if not it’s sole purpose.

    The IAWTV Board should know the Internet is about social mobilization, that is what drives viewers, subscribers, commentators and other web traffic to view the content online.

    Build the network and engage the community.

    Peace,
    ~Jerry

    The Guild Comic AWESOME – Great work congrats!

  • Felicia, as a cigar chomping fat cat I deal with things like this all the time. If someone accuses you of trying to initiate a coup and take over their organization, your ONLY option is to do just that. Why? Because then YOU have a brand new organization you can do what you want with ’cause you took it over and they get to point and say: SEE! We told you!

    Everyone wins.

  • Tony P

    Until right now I have never heard of IAWTV. I did know of the streamys and a little of what went down with the awards. What I do feel is that awards are meaningless unless the presenters have some credit. Compare the academy of Motion Pictures (Oscars) to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (Golden Globes). The Academy is made up of thousands of actors, directors, writers, producers, etc. The HFPA is made up of less than 100 journalists from outside the US. It baffles me as to why the Golden Globes gets as much press as the Oscars.
    Then there’s the People’s Choice Awards, (Everyday people voting, not too bad.) the MTV Movie awards (uh, ok), and the Blockbuster Entertainment awards. (Are they even still around? Really did anyone who won one of those really take any pride in winning?)
    Another thing to consider, like Felicia mentioned, is what constitutes web content? Motion pictures are pretty much defined, but web content is almost all encompassing. Today there’s a heck of a lot more people producing internet stuff, than motion pictures. But who really gets to decide what should be recognized and what shouldn’t?
    My point is, as much as I agree on recognizing superior web content, the only way give IAWTV some credibility is make it’s board a global of all types of content producers.

  • Erin

    Hey Felicia – sorry for the unrelated comment, but I noticed something weird tonight that I thought I would bring to your attention. I was googling your name so that I could see some info on your IMDB (a Bring it On movie was on tv and I was checking to see if it’s the one you’re in), and when the results for your name came up, so too did some weird spam text.

    For example, the first listing for feliciaday.com says ” HI, I’M FELICIA DAY. Buy lorazepam from canada, You may have found your way here….” and the title of the site is “Diazepam Sale – HQ pharmacy.”

    A few listings down, watchtheguild.com is titled “Order Atripla No Rx – Online DrugStore.”

    I’m not sure if you use WordPress, but there have been some problematic security breaches in the last few weeks (my own blog got hacked), so maybe that’s the issue.

    Anyway, I thought I would bring this to your attention. I hope it’s an easy fix and not too big a deal. Again sorry for posting this as a comment on your blog- didn’t know how else to send you a lengthy message.

    I hope one thing that is urgently addressed is to put the I in IATW, OK it had to begin somewhere, but I worry that it could become fixed as a predominantly US organization. If that is the plan, better to become a totally American entity with a name change and no-one from other countries allowed membership.

  • canuckkat

    I think the main problem is this: the web community (well, any community in general) is a collection of cliques that tend to war against each other, just like in high school. And, just like in high school, getting a board of persons who can amicably discuss and make decisions for the community to better the community without advancing their own agenda is rather hard to do.

    IMO, IAWTV and the web community needs to re-evaluate what they want out of the IAWTV (e.g. goals, directions, promotion, etc.). Whether it be through public forum, blogs, or otherwise, I guess it’s really up to the community and the people who are passionate about web video and/or have interests in web video.

    Anyways, off my tiny soapbox. Keep up the great work!

  • Great post. I registered for the forums (I didn’t even know there WERE forums…) and I look forward to becoming more involved.

  • Thank you for posting this, and I hope you continue to cover the goings-on at the IAWTV. I know that a lot of your fans, myself included, are trying to become more involved in web TV, but are still at the very lower rungs of things and learning as we go – it’s really great that I can turn to your blog and learn a thing or two about the business side of things from a creator’s perspective. Thanks again!

  • I have a terribly ignorant question, but I’m asking because there may be other readers as ignorant as I am, and they may also benefit from the answer.

    Why is it important to have an organization? Why not just a bunch of people, making films, and posting them, and enjoying that low-cost-of-entry that makes this so wonderful and independent? What benefits can/should a collective organization provide?

  • len

    @kenny: An organization enables them to have events such as the Streamy’s, for example. I’ve not read their charter but if it is like others I’ve worked with, it enables coordination of common resources, provides representation to other organizations such as lobbying for common interests (eg., net neutrality), can act as a holder of common intellectual property, and so on. It can help in collective bargaining, sponsor training conferences, collect information and distribute it (say common web site).

    In the early days of VRML, we tried the All We Need Is A List Server and discovered while that is true for very simple operations, it doesn’t work when you have common properties such as standards. Large organizations will and have tried to force their own interests over that of the community. Eventually a community that identifies itself as having common interests and properties has to have a legal entity.

    So while I can’t say precisely what the IAWTV does (not a member), I’ve dealt with other online web organizations and standards organizations before that. Protect the work and don’t get so wrapped up in politics that you forget to create (it happens), but don’t be naive about the commercial and regulatory entities that can make it a lot harder because you had no voice when you needed where you needed. The days of “sets in the barn” on the Web were over by 1996.

    Will the organization create its own problems? Certainly. Practice patience and pay attention. Like everything you do to organize and produce your content, be smart. Justice isn’t organic; it’s something you work for. The good news here is from what I’ve read, you have an energetic passionate community that can and will stand up for itself.

    Pick up your prize.

    DONDE SUSURRA EL VIENTO.

    Cuando llegas arriba
    de la pequeña colina
    que corona el puerto,
    pensarás haber tocado
    con los dedos el cielo.
    Date la vuelta y mira
    a tus pies
    y después,
    dime que lo has visto,
    que el cielo está abajo,
    abajo de la colina
    donde susurra el viento.

    “Caminante no hay camino”,
    hay camino, don Antonio,
    ¿no ve usted la serpiente gris
    que atraviesa el valle,
    de Oeste a Este
    y de parte a parte?,
    ¿no ve usted como se ondula
    y cimbrea, se diluye y resucita,
    se esconde trás las fachadas
    de las casitas pardas?.

    Hemos viajado hasta el cielo
    para ver el paraíso.
    ¡Vengan a ver, vengan a a ver!,
    vengan cristianos de estos
    y de los otros también,
    budistas, ateos, agnósticos,
    musulmanes y de la nada,
    vengan a ver esta tierra
    por naturaleza extraña,
    y sin embargo, ¡tan fiel!.
    Por si lo quieren saber,
    a ambas orillas del Jerte,
    en estos idus de Marzo,
    los cerezos ya florecen.

    Why is it important to have an organization?

    Because for some events and engagements, community representation under a legal entity empowered to represent, negotiate and bargain is required.

    We’re a civilization built on contracts. They have to be signed.

  • Anthony Martelli

    Felicia,

    I am sorry you wernt able to make your meeting that’s a bummer. However your work on the guild is important, being the main character and all =) not to mention it lets people into the geekdom that is internet gaming… I am ashamed to say that I am not caught up on the show, the last episode I saw was the one where your character finds the stunt man living with another woman… But it is an excellent show and I give you kudos coming up with it, regardless if it is based on real life… I must say I think you are a phenomenal actress and, as an actor myself, I hope I get the chance to work with you one day… Any way thats all I wanted to say. Keep up the good work… = )

  • I comedian one situation that is urgently addressed is to put the I in IATW, OK it had to start somewhere, but I trouble that it could beautify fixed as a predominantly US organization. If that is the think, outperform to transform a totally Earth entity with a family transfer and no-one from other countries allowed membership..

  • Steamwheedle Cartel

    Armchair thoughts, thinking-typing and devil’s advocacy here:

    To put this in “Guild” terms, the whole thing seems like a guild has had some serious drama and either is going to split merge or disband and a new one be made. (All this mirrors season 2 and 3?)

    Is Felicia’s vision of what IATW should be congruent with that of the other influential members? Doesn’t seem so and infact the impression seems to be rather fractured with too many people vying for “control” to take their agendas in the direction they want it to go.

    Thus its a battle of wills perhaps? He who controls the splice controls the webverse?

    Is there a contradiction in wanting such organized legitimacy and control to the web medium(s) and that of fostering the creativity and growth that some wish to envision?

    Is there a contradiction between the calls by various members for strong leadership and vision for IATW should be/do and that of the fear, timidity, and pacivity from members of squashing something with percieved trememdous potential?

    Should IATW be the vehicle by which some, many or all of these hopes become realized? Perhaps the effort to seek its redemption is the path of most resistance? Perhaps it is not?

    An old marching band director once said “Band, we’re only as strong as our weakest member.” He said that to:

    1. Make every one think about themselves and awareness of how they could improve themselves and their contribution to the band. (you are your own best resource)

    2. To make them aware of working to encourage the other members and sections to work harder together and thus improve as a whole, single group. (We are our own best resource)

    Are IATW and its members really working together with their own personal and group resources to turn the cacauphony into a symphony?

  • Walter

    Felicia,
    It’s nice to have come across someone that is as talented as you are, which is actually why I’m commenting. Do you do all of your own singing? I just came across “The Guild” through netflix and it led me to Dr. Horrible. Through “The Guild” site I also found the music video for “Do You Wanna Date My Avatar”. All of which are amazing. Just curious if it’s all you too. Either way I think you’re stunning and amazing in the cutest geek way. I hope all is well and I wish you the best of luck with your endeavors. <3 Cheers.

  • Web video is very hard to define, and the opinions of everyone from YouTube vloggers to network-backed web series should be heard and represented. Whether this means a change in leadership or addition of board seats, I believe it needs to happen, again, quickly, in order to regroup and proceed forward.
