I have made my Venturebeat video debut. Sort of. I pop in to this video right around the 2:05 mark. By the way, I enjoy working with these people very much. Check out their work by clicking on the links. VBWeekly: Pepsi Next and, oh yeah, some tech news from Venturebeat on Vimeo.  
Do you think some feature films may be crowdsourced someday? I got to thinking it may be possible after checking out a contest that crowdsourced the best commercials made by independent filmmakers. MOFILM runs a series of competitions connected to festivals around the world, from Cannes to Rio. Nascent filmmakers choose one of the sponsors...
Although this anchorman should have been able to space the intro and the headlines better, it’s important for the teleprompter to have proper punctuation. This is Ken Bastida of KPIX, a CBS affiliate in the San Francisco Bay Area market, but maybe after this flub he should move down to the San Diego area because...
This reporter for FOX News might want to reconsider his wording for this particular story. Seems almost like he snuck that one in on purpose. What do you think? It still blows me away, all the errors and blunders that are made by professional news journalists. You’d imagine that with being on live TV every...
This NBC12 field reporter thought a quick shot with a friendly camel would be easy. Sometimes the easy assignments turn into the more interesting ones. I like how the cameraman was able to keep filming and help her with one hand…and how she asked if he was still rolling. Anything for the shot, right?
I’m a huge fan of the movie Catch Me If You Can about the con artist (and fugitive) Frank William Abagnale, Jr., who was played by Leonardo Dicaprio. I’m wondering when they’ll be making the movie of Bin Laden and who will be playing him. Well the folks over at Good Magazine have put together this...
For all the time, work, money and effort, Christopher Knight put into this great commercial, here’s hoping he got the position at Rockingham County School Board of Education. I guess it just goes to show you that when it comes to advertising (and most other things too), you get what you pay for.
Facebook is pretty much a part of everyone’s lives now. It’s ingrained in most of our social interactions in some form or another. There is nary a person I know that doesn’t at least use it or check it once throughout the week. But what if Facebook didn’t exist in this day and age? Check...
This might be the end-all-be-all in news reporter slip ups. I’d be surprised to see her on the air again anytime soon. Granted it’s easy to see how she could make the mistake…but over and over again. …and to report that the CIA ordered it. I do feel bad for her. I always get embarrassed...
