Theresa’s also been a tremendous help to us on other Shelby projects. She shot and edited the latest video for our new iPhone app and was responsible for the great images you can see in our team page.
With such strong video skills, its not that surprising that Theresa has equally great skill in unearthing the latest quirky and smart videos on the web. As of today, we’re proud to announce you’ll be able to see her great video finds right in our Featured section!

When did you first discover Shelby.TV and what was your initial impression of us?
I think it was late 2011. I was so happy to find a way to discover great content that I wanted to bake Shelby cookies. The internet has great content and I wanted to find those awesome videos.
If you could classify the kinds of videos you watch and share into one or two categories — what would they be?
My categories would be ‘TV & Film’ and ‘Melts your heart/leaves you saying “That was totally wicked!”’ With a lot of Glove and Boots videos. I love you, Fafa.
What’s the difference between a video worth sharing and a video you’d keep to yourself?
For me to share a video, it has to entertain or inspire me and in turn feel it can entertain or inspire others. With sharing comes great responsibility. Some videos just cater to my interests and would not have the same affect for others. With each video I share, I want you to be a little happier, or better off than you were four minutes before. Even if its just a quick smile.
Would you agree that video killed the radio star?
Yes, and I sit and patiently wait to see what web video will do to television as we know it.
