Super excited about this months EXTRA Every Third Thursday episode. (surprise, it’s not a 3rd Thursday!)
This idea had been suggested a few times in the comments and discussed in several production meetings. It actually seemed like quite the challenge. Which is amazing when you think about the crazy boards they’ve created.
This months episode was another quick turnaround! The following photo was posted to my instagram on 12/12/13 which is one week before the video goes live to Network A. However, the final edit is actually due on Monday. That’s a four day turnaround!

To end off every season of ETT we try to get a little creative with how people can participate in the episode. Last year (Best of ETT Season 2) we used annotations to allow the video itself to work as a DVD menu screen. If at any point in the episode they wanted to click over and see the episode that was being discussed, it was one quick click a way!
This year we decided to experiment with the seldom used, Youtube Response Video to allow anyone the ability to leave a video comment that then be used to edit together the “Best Of” episode. We’re basically putting the future of the next episode in the hands of the viewer. So if people want to talk about something that stoked them out or pissed them off, that’s great!
It should be really interesting to see who loads videos and what they decide to talk about!
Make sure to join in the fun! Here’s How to Make A Response Video.
Here’s an example that I made with my iPhone and the YouTube Capture App
