The Daily Reel

From the Hollywood Reporter:

"Carson Daly has signed on as a contributor to, a new online video publication from film producer Jamie Patricof and publishing exec Jeffrey Stern designed to help entertainment professionals narrow their Web video searches for undiscovered talent.

"Half Nelson" producer Patricof and former Details magazine president and publisher Stern will oversee the site, which uses a team of editors to distill the best content from more than 250 video sites, including YouTube, Google Video, iFilm and Atom Entertainment. It also provides detailed production notes and filmmaker contact information."

From The Daily Reel site:

"At this moment, there are nearly 200 online video sites; one of those sites, YouTube, purports to upload 35,000 new videos each day. Therein lies the problem. Anybody with a video camera can upload his or her latest “masterpiece.” And each of these sites – YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo’s “The 9” – can show you what’s popular through their respective ranking systems. But how can you-the-viewer ferret out what is worth watching?

We started The Daily Reel to showcase the best in online video. TDR’s mission is to sift through the nipple-slipping lip-synchers, find the good stuff, and show you what you need to watch. We devote all of our time and resources to finding the quality content among the hundreds of thousands, even millions of videos that are out there. TDR believes that a handful of these creators represent the future of the medium; we don’t want tomorrow’s filmmakers to go unnoticed today. "
