Web Creator Greg Ash on How Second Screen Mimics Literature

Web series creator Greg Ash talks to Beet.TV about his show Super Chill and how it uses second screen content to give extra insight into the show's characters. Says Ash, "I do think the second screen thing does offer interesting options for the filmmaker or the storyteller. I mean I'm certainly inspired by literature as well as films. I like the way in literature that you will get glimpses of what different characters are doing. In works like Dickens you get this kind of broad tapestry of a city. We found that the security camera footage was perhaps a modern version of this, giving the viewer that chance to sort of be omniscient and to see what other things were going on within this world of Super Chill."
