ABOUT BESTOW TV

So you want to know more about Bestow TV?

Bestow TV was started and founded by Paul Sanders, as Bestow Productions in 2004, serving the Central Pennsylvania area their supply of local television commercials.

 

An avid goer to comic conventions, his plan was to someday cross over both passions. In 2013 that became a reality with the series called Creative Continuity. The first season was hosted by journalism major Tommy Zimmer and first episodes shot at C2E2 in Chicago, Illinois. Also in that year a second show was added called Creative Continuity's Bonus Content (or Bonus Content for short). The "original" design for the show was to capture the convention feel at shows that Tommy was unable to attend. However, the show morphed into a cosplay highlight montage in later episodes.

Baltimore Comic Con 2014

Vic's Transmissions: Eddie Satisfied circa 2006

Produced by Bestow Productions

The original homes to the two shows were mainly located at (the now defunct) Blip.tv as well as the original Bestow Productions YouTube channel.

 

Season 2 of Creative Continuity saw 3 show hosts; Yana Aronova, Mark Aronov and Harold Gant. While Bonus Content double upped episodes from 6 to 9 episodes as well as finding it's first People's Telly Award at New York Comic Con.

 

In 2015 Bestow TV was created to separate the commercial works of Bestow Productions from the independent web series work. Creative Continuity moved forward with a single host format with Harold Gant, before taking a hiatus. On the Bonus Content home front, increasing the episodes for the year by 7, while earning another People's Telly for New York Comic con as well as Retro Con. The entire 2015 Bonus Content got recognized by the Telly counsel.

 

With Creative Continuity on hiatus for the year, a relaunch of Byte Sized Creative Continuity takes its place. They're re-edits of season 2 and 3 limiting the episode to one set of interviews instead of a pair - a format that'll carry over to season 4 of the main show.

Harrisburg Comiccon 2017

2016 is also the final year for Bonus Content, since the formula strayed away from it's original design. Its final year was a blow out, with a massive 24 episode list ending with a series finale looking back across the 4 year/53 convention span.

 

2017 saw many new projects added to the channel. Cos-Tunes is a cosplay montage series focused on the look and feel of movie trailers. ConRewind is a quick, usuailly single subject, overview. Finally Mr. Lobo Does is a comedy series focusing on Cinema Insomnia's Mr. Lobo and his outsiders view on the world.

 

With the new series Mr. Lobo has picked up hosting duties for a 4th season of Creative Continuity as well as a possible spin off called "Tour 5,000" - starting with Troma studios. He and Paul host a weekly podcast called Sleepless Knights of Insomnia.
