Prior to the 2nd Annual Streamy Awards on Sunday, April 11, L.A. Weekly camped out on the red carpet with a video camera and asked nominees, presenters and winners what best piece of advice they'd give to someone just starting out who wants to create their own web series. We figured you wouldn't want to sit through five hours of chit chat so we narrowed it down to our favorite answers. Watch the video for appearances by Chris Hardwick, Chad Hurley, Jesse Warren, Jaleel White, Felicia Day, David Faustino, Zoe Bell, Michael Irpino, Zadi Diaz, Steve Woolf, Alex Albrecht, Bernie Su, Jason and Randy Sklar, and more.
