Background Information

In a way this lot is all rather old fashioned. See they're sketches just written out, because in the early days of the internet, that's all we could do. It's all we wanted to do.

These days, people don't make web pages like this. If you have a sketch you'd record it using your video camera, or you'd animate it.

That has a problem because not everyone can animate, and not everyone has the budget or locations to film things properly. So some sketches don't get done. And those sketches don't have a home on the internet.

That is, unless you're old fashioned like me and just look at all this new fangled effort and go... "Meh, can't be arsed".

Cos not every good script writer wants to be a director to. And nor does every bad script writer either...
