Current Calls for Citizen Video
Lost Remote: Current calls for citizen video Do you want a production deal with an up and coming alternative video broadcaster? Then Al Gore wants your videos. Time to resend in those dusty old tapes that never did end up making it on America’s Funniest Home Videos (by the way remember, kids or dad hurting themselves or pets doing stupid things — the key to America’s Funniest Home Videos) and send them off to almost President Al Gore.
“Current will be looking for video submissions in three categories. “Current Gigs” wants to see the most incredible, bizarre, or mindless jobs in the world. “Current Soul” seeks videos on what connects people to the divine, whether it’s Jesus or Allah, yoga or tantra, churching or surfing. Finally, “Current Fashion” wants those with style to turn the cameras on themselves or others to show us what’s in, or what should be out. ”
“All submissions must be received by May 12. Current will select five semi-finalists, and the finalist will be selected by registered voters on the web site (www.current.tv) and announced before Memorial Day. The finalist will be awarded a “Studio Development Deal” to produce three short-form segments (three to five minutes in length) within a theme, the focus of which will be decided together with our programming team. The deal will include $3,000 funding for all three segments. The segments will air sometime after the network begins its broadcast, set for Fall 2005.”
