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...
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...
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...
It’s always refreshing to hear a celebrity speak candidly…but this is one of the most honest and open I’ve heard one talk about fame and fortune in a while. I’ve always liked Russell Brand and his comedy but this will give you quite an insight into how he functions and why he acts the way...
reporter ruins world record, reporter messes up world record
At the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana, California, a group of bubbly people gathered. About 150 folks wanted to set a Guinness World Record for the most people to step inside a bubble. Fan Yang is the “bubble scientist” behind the feat. He helped organized and direct the people into the massive bubble of...
Some times being a news interviewer can be tough. You’ve got the normal challenges of being live on camera, reading from teleprompters and listening to the producer direct you through the earpiece. These things can be practised and learned to do with ease. But even the best can get thrown off by a tough guest....
We’ve all been witness to a bad commercial before. How about those darned class action lawsuit ads that are always popping up during my Jeopardy! program. They’re horrible but I’ve gotten somewhat immune to viewing them. Here are some truly awful local TV ad spots. I’d doubt if it wasn’t for YouTube and the internets...
With the 2011 NCAA Basketball Tournament starting this week it’s only fitting that Google release a virtual tour of the venues incorporating Google Earth. It seems they’re bigger basketball fans than even myself. They setup a site just for the sole purpose of keeping track of all the coverage (there’s also a hidden game!) On top...
