Director Neil Berkeley writes a piece on The Huffington Post about the challenges of creating a documentary about a living person who is mid-career, as he did with Dan Harmon in Harmontown. He writes, "You see, people's lives don't follow structure and we don't go on a journey. We don't cross thresholds, we don't meet goddesses and we don't return to our villages with elixir. We may occasionally be heroes and sometimes villains but mostly we're just people ... Truth is we're mostly extras." Read the full story here.

Abby Portnoy took inspiration from The Muppets, Psycho and Disney's Cheshire Cat for her delightful music video for Avery Tare's Slasher Flicks' "Little Fang," which uses an actual Jim Henson puppet and has approval from the Alfred Hitchcock Foundation. She explains to The Creators Project, "I wanted to do something like a mock of a horror movie but make it lighthearted. It’s intense and freaky but also really funny. Do you remember that scene in Psycho where they’re in the car? I wanted to do that, but have a puppet driving it, and that’s where I started. The whole start was this whole funny mock of Psycho. I even got approved from Alfred Hitchcock Foundation. Then I went to Dave [Portnoy a.k.a. Avey Tare] and was like 'I want to do a video with a Jim Henson puppet and I don’t know if it’s impossible, but this is my idea.'"

Agency Loyalkaspar created the moody, character-driven promos for season 2 of Bates Motel. The concept was to go from outside of the characters to the "inside looking out." As creative director Geoff Bailey puts it, "We believe there’s always a single image that should encapsulate the heart of a spot… That one image that, even if it’s an on-air spot, the rest of your narrative flows out from.” Watch the spots below and read the full story here on Brief.
