To start our coverage of DIFF X, the Tenth Anniversary of the Dallas International Film Festival,
Monk takes a moment to talk to Lee Papert about the beginnings of the festival and the Dallas Film
Society. Festival begins April 14th. Visit diff2016.dallasfilm.org
for more details.
Red Carpet coverage brought to you by:
One of McCort Entertainments most popular specialties, is our mobile live streaming. Referring to it as a "TV
studio in a box", we come to your event and broadcast it with professional quality, over the internet. Currently,
we live stream monthly from a number of open mics around Dallas. McCort Entertainment has also joined with a
number of our affiliates to broadcast live from fairs, festivals, and conventions around the state of Texas.
Lights, camera, ACTION!
We have produced two web series utilizing the power of the internet and its worldwide reach to distribute our
shows. We started with our Traveling with Monk™ series that explored all the free and low cost activities
available around North Texas. We are currently producing the Dallas Area Open Mics BUZZcast, a show dedicated
to promoting the open mics of the DFW Metroplex and the artists who perform at them.
Theater of the mind
McCort Entertainment began as an audio recording and productions company and plan to continue producing these
types of shows. Our latest creation is a podcast called Anime-Outcast the Podcast™ hosted by anime nuts Jaikain
and Coci. Together with a cast of funny characters, they cover all the news, reviews, and conventions of the
anime world. We have also posted episodes of one of our earlier productions, The Adventures of Jose and
MonkEBoy™, their commentaries about the world around them.
McE Quick bits™
Quick, easy, and up in minutes.
McE Quick Bits™ is an idea formed by Brent Dow, President of McCort Entertainment, in which a 30-60 second
interview is filmed, edited, and posted to our website all from a mobile device within minutes of the filming.
Having tested this with great success at Quakecon 2013, Mr. Dow decided to take this new feature to other conventions
with continued success. Check in our Services section to see how we can help you cover your next event with Quick
bits of your own.
Event Coverage, Red Carpets, and Music Videos
McCort Entertainment works with a number of affiliates to cover events from festivals to red carpets. We have had
the opportunity to film and assist in interviewing many celebrities attending film releases and get these videos
posted to our client's website and Youtube channel. McCort Entertainment has also worked with a number of bands to
produce quality music videos as well as live performance shoots that the band can then use for promotional purposes.

church youth programs to help teach Bible lessons as well as backing tracks of popular cover songs for web show
hosts to perform on their programs.

"Innocence Lost" ~Sometime After
In 2010 we ventured into the making of a music video and were very happy with the results. The local band,
"Sometime After", allowed us to use them as our guinea pigs and we set out around Mesquite, TX to film.
The video was shot over a 2 day period using 4 different locations to capture band shots as well as some story
elements. The video was released in the Summer of 2010 has received high ratings on Youtube. This and
their interview in an episode of "Traveling with Monk" can be found in our "Productions" area.
