Here's your chance folks! You, too, may become a big time celebrity. Who knows, maybe we can qualify for an Oscar. We finally are getting into the movie business. (If enough take pity on me and humor me through this latest rage.) Come join me in the movie business. Let's make a splash that Diggs a hole for Utube.
Here is how it will work. I have produced a video clip which I will email to those who feel they qualify and want to participate in this leading edge experiment in Citizen Journalism. I know similar things have been done but no one can do this better or Smarter than Newsviners. When you email me, preferably to my firstname.lastname@example.org but I will also accept Newsvine mail, I will reply with an email that contains the initial video clip as a .wmv file. You can watch this file and then create your own clip of about the same size and duration. This first file from you will be used to verify the system will work and to iron out any initial organizational problems.
Once I have received the first clip from you I will create a clip for each person who qualifies and continue to volunteer their service. On my second clip to you I will have questions for each individual. I will ask you to answer the questions on another clip and return that to me. Once I have all the clips I will edit and publish a short movie. This movie will be made available to all. The publishing may have to be by email attachment. I want this to be done entirely with Newsvine resources or possibly MSNBC.com.
How do you qualify? Be a breathing, alive, Newsviner from anywhere in the world. Be a volunteer. Be able and capable of producing the short return videos required. At this time I expect my initial questions to be on meta things for Newsvine but I can foresee doing this with political, social, financial or business questions later on. If this works we will all gain experience if nothing else.
If you have read this and want to proceed, send me an email saying so. I will asap send you the initial clip. Thanks.
