The Spotlight

Just before season one of the Spotlight aired in 2010 Kinte the shows eventual creator was approached to start a animation podcast with an animator and Modder named Onald by well-known Modder Stvndysn. That show never got off the ground so Kinte turned his attention to starting a show that focuses on interviews with independent content creators. These Content creators ranged from Machinima and live action film makers, Modders, Voice actors and ETC. Looking for a co-host Kinte went to friend and Founder of Tower of Zeal online Neon-San for those duties.

Season 1 on April 15, 2010 the first episode of the Spotlight aired on a Thursday night at 7pm pst / 10 pm est with guest Benjamin Tuttle and the cast of his film “Farce of the Zombies”. On the eight episode of the season Voice actor/ producer psylent.knight would join the show as a co-host. Then eventually Film maker D.L. Watson would round out the foursome of Hosts on the show.
