Teaching People To Tell Their Own Stories In Video

I have long been a proponent of democratizing the media.

Did you know that 95% of what you see on TV or online is produced by 6 major media companies?

That is crazy.

The reason used to be technology.

A broadcast video camera cost $100,000 once

And edit suite was over $1 million (when a million was still a lot of money)

Today, your iPhone has more 'firepower' than NBC News and you already own it.

You just don't know what to do with it.

But we can show you.

For more than 30 years we have been running video and film making bootcamps in real life - face to face. Those days are gone, at least for the moment.

So now we are running virtual bootcamps.

And they work,

They may even work better than the real life ones, for a variety of reasons. They are certainly a lot less expensive to run.

So far, the results have been astonishingly good, and we expect them to get even better.

If you're interestd in attending one of these, drop me a line. 

We are just getting started, but I have a feeling this is going to outlast the lockdown.

AND, it's a better way to spend your time than bingewatching Friends again.

For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.

What TV News Could Be
February 26, 2024

When television was invented in the 1930s, no one knew what TV news was supposed to look like. The medium had never existed before, and so, like Gutenberg half a millennium, prior, the first creators of TV news had to fall back on a medium with which they were familiar, and that was radio.

Maybe scary stories drive ratings… or maybe they don’t.
