Have you seen the new WUCF online shorts about the arts scene in Orlando? It's OK, we know you haven't, because from what we can see, the view counts are fairly dismal. The most views they've gotten: 301 for a video on porcelain art.
Artisodes is a collaborative effort between PBS and WUCF to preach the gospel of local arts and culture to those who will listen ... or click. It's a weekly series that looks at anything from visual to performing arts and according to their boilerplate, is meant to "educate, inform and entertain."
Here's a collection of some of our favorite shorts for your viewing pleasure!
