Just as YouTube changed the way we get our entertainment fix, so mobile TV is about to change the way we get our fix of reality shows:to go. Snackable content in the form of Calendarettes, which features a bunch of models in bikinis fighting it out to star in a glamorous calendar, is one of two offerings by Italian startup Small Formats.
The Calendarettes are 8 to 10 episodes long, but since they're produced with mobile in mind, there are 2-3 minute mobile clips, or mobisodes, and a website component.
The other project is a sitcom about three guys cooking pasta in their kitchen. Called Pasta Is Fun, the program's cut up into 3-5 minute bite-sized episodes, with a companion website featuring recipes.
