Looking at this site for where to make a link back from video of DCC Cultural Hustings. Found this space so about to copy from blog. WiFi Exeter is an old blog but not much political bias I can remember. Current project is for full and objective reporting. More notes added at bottom on some detail.
Playlists, Performance promo, DCC Cultural Hustings
Each of the clips from the Devon county council Cultural Hustings is now uploaded to YouTube, including the full session and there is a playlist. The playlist can be added to before the election so suggestions are welcome. Liberal Democrat for example as Vanessa Newcombe was ill at the time.
I will also look at other playlists that show what is possible with video to promote and relate to cultural events. Joseph Parsons has extended his 2017 tour from 2016 but still seems to be based in Topsham and Launceston. Sound of the Sirens are at the Phoenix soon and there is an excellent recent video from the Exeter Cathedral.
With Tubers now in Exeter there is increased interest in how online video can work. At a low level the issues are just about lighting and sound. The hustings video clips were with a hand held camera relying on the excellent sound and lighting provided. The Boat Shed could be a good base for more interviews and performances over the summer. Maybe there could be a space to store a tripod and other resources.
Issues that came up include access to broadband. Perhaps we should just accept that in Devon this happens at different rates. We have a very wide variety of acccess. But this could result in an interesting situation for amending content into different formats.
The clips are all with Creative Commons so they can be reused. Could there be more content like this? Content marketing is another aspect but the theory depends on actual content.
Mainstream media now supply clips to YouTube and other outlets. Newspapers also work with video. So there is a wide variety of content available. News and culture reporting can be part of the same developments. So much to discuss in how Devon as a locality can relate.
Recently found the Workshop at Phoenix is a good venue for video. Bad Blood It Is A Love Story worked fine with one extra voice recorder up close. The Voodoo Lounge is too long for a camera at the back to zoom enough. Sells more tickets but I am only worried about the video so Workshop ok. Lighting at Bike Shed is terrible. No other way to put it. So Boat Shed is promising. Bar for chat and lighting not too far away. Even daylight in the summer outside. I realise there are other parts of Devon, just an Exeter take.
