How do I translate the stage experience to a web experience? How do get an actor who’s used to dealing with audience reaction of people to deal with the lens?  How can a web video help promote live performances? Sketch Comedy for the Web is ideal for actors and directors alike that are interested in taking a sketch comedy group’s material and having it be camera ready without compromising the tone and rhythm of the group.
