Internet Killed TV

Internet Killed Television is a web series which documents the lives of Charles Trippy, his wife Alli and their dogs Zoey and Marley.[1][2]

The show consists of episodes averaging around one to twenty minutes that are filmed, edited, and then aired every day onto YouTube by mid-afternoon Eastern Standard Time (early evening Greenwich Mean Time). The series was originally planned to last for only one year; however, after the success of the season, the couple have decided to continue. The YouTube series has now reached its fourth year and every year, so far, they have reached out to their audience, the CTFxC(ers) to create a montage featuring the main events that had occurred that year.

Production

The show is shot with a Canon PowerShot ELPH 110 HS, a Canon EOS 7D, or an iPhone 5 when the main camera is not available. The couple also occasionally film using a GoPro 2, usually when filming at the beach due to its waterproof nature. In earlier episodes, Trippy used a Flip UltraHD camcorder or an iPhone 4s. Charles Trippy has a history of damaging cameras by damaging the lenses and screens almost to the point where it has become unusable. It states on the show's website that the series is edited on Apple's Final Cut Pro 7 via a Mac Pro or a MacBook Pro w/ retina display. Charlie Puth composed the show's early theme songs, and various viewers have contributed their own versions. "dubblekickrick" created the most current and common theme, though TeraBrite covered this and are more often used for the outro song. The theme song has changed several times including one to celebrate the Trippys' wedding. The show also features a somewhat traditional 'title card', which others have contributed to the show—usually featuring the show's logo - and plays at the beginning of each episode. As of February 24, 2013, there have been 1,395 episodes made, with all videos on the channel totaling 1,532 and having a combined total of 336,656,712 video views.
