The Wacky Web | Hi-Tech
Bravura Films is probably best known for its merciless skewering of both the zealous hypesters and the equally passionate deprecators of the World Wide Web.

As hired guns for high-tech luminaries, Bob Kalsey and his posse of jesters have lampooned buffoons of every stripe. Techno-utopian optimists and fear-mongering Luddites are equal-opportunity targets of our zingers.

From the distant days of puffery about the impending birth of the "information superhighway" to the premature burial-by-disintermediation of "the world as we know it," we have spoken our mind in imagery and song.

Journey back with us, then, through a brief history of the World Wide Web -- as seen through the satirical videos of Bravura Films...
