$1,000 if your video appears on the show… not a bad deal…..
Citizen Journalism or “The Revolution” in television production is all fine, but there has to be a market for your work. What’s the ‘entry level’ slot for someone with an idea and a camera?
ABC, CNN and NBC all have places where you can upload ‘citizen news’ to their sites. They get free programming. What do you get? F&*%$d? That’s about right.
In partnership with The Travel Channel, we have designed a new show called “What’s Your Trip”, hosted by Anthony Bourdain (author Kitchen Confidential and Cook’s Tour) and star of Travel Channel’s most successful series: No Reservations. (Produced by the brilliant Zero point Zero, Lydia Tenaglia and Chris Collins).
What’s Your Trip is a weekly half hour that showcases travel videos that you have made. Everyone takes a video camera along on a trip. Most people shoot tons of stuff that only a few relatives and very close friends get roped into seeing. The arrival of home editing gear has opened a door for vast change.
We’re looking for the innovative, the creative, the clever and the funny. Its a great opportunity for those who want to be filmmakers, tv producers or visual story tellers. We see it very much as the new ‘entry level’ to the television business. And we’ll pay up to $1,000 for each video used. We’re also looking to find and nurture talent with an eye to bigger projects in the future.
The pilot show, shot today, will air May 21st. The series shortly thereafter.
This is a unique opportuity to leverage off ‘Citizen Journalists”, or in this case perhaps we should say, “Citizen Producers”. The cheap gear is all about the ‘democratization’ of the medium. Now comes the production side.
