Rougemont Global Broadcasting and script development

Over the next few months I plan to work on some scripts that could become video, maybe for Rougemont Global Broadcasting (RGB). There is an outline that gives an overview of the topics. Recently the video Swicki has turned up and may have a similar effect. The keywords could each be an element in a series of programs or chunks. RGB is currently an attempt at a script or text structure. Short videos appear through Exeter TV, mostly through Youtube.

There are three questions that can be asked in many contexts. What is changing for content through digital technology. What is changing for how content is promoted? Is there a viable business model for online content?

These could be asked about fine art or animation or Exeter TV. There could be a series of interviews and work out more structure when editing.

The blog will relate to events such as Animated Exeter. For example the Untitled Translation Exercise at the Phoenix next week. I am still a bit puzzled as to what the show at the Phoenix is about. Is Cory Arcangel taking a dim view of the web and YouTube? I have tried to befriend him on MySpace but no reply so far.

The thing that strikes me about searches for digital animation is that the early stuff is not turning up. John Whitney has Arabesque on YouTube. That is about it. So this point will be repeated.

The demoscene is far off for Exeter as the next Sundown is not till September. Still, there are plans for a visit to Breakpoint from the 21st to the 24th of March 2008 (Easter weekend)so there will at least be a report back. There is a Pouet thread on the idea of an intro for Ubuntu. (They don't think much of my story for OhmyNews but that is ok. Someone else should write more for OhmyNews so they can group stories together. OK I did muddle up an Atari and an Amiga in a photo caption...)

Second Life is a constant factor nowadays. There will probably be something in Bristol towards the end of Feb that is also on Second Life. Details later as if it matters where or when. Previously

So the blog will connect to events as they happen or turn up on archive. The Swicki Video is the best route to content.
