Wowio wants to do a thing during SDCC (and I think the plan was also some time leading up to SDCC, but not sure if that is still in the works) where there will be live-streamed video here on Drunk Duck and Wowio's other sites. Some of that they will be able to manage themselves (like footage and interviews from SDCC), but they will need a lot more! That is where you guys come in. Uh, I'll just quote Kinh here:
But in addition to interviews, we really want to get the DD community involved in creating virtually ANY kind of content they want to see put up on the stream. Basically, Wowio REALLY wants the DD community to feel as if the content on this WowioTV thing is DD related and informed by the DD community itself. Weâ€™re thinking the best way to actually get members of the community interested in the stream would be to reach out to them and ask them to get involved with it (completely at their discretion of course). This can include IDEALLY video content related to DD of some kind, but additionally if they want to do DD-related comic strips, drawings, music, audio, etc. All this stuff is going to be used both to present back to the community on the stream and to promote the site as a whole to new audiences.
So, basically that means, if you have video or other content you'd like to share, you can do so! (With the knowledge that it is being publicly distributed via the stream.) I'm nnnnnnnot really sure how they plan to organize this, so just post here and we'll see how it goes. I included some of my ideas for video content below, I don't know if they'll do any of them, but it might give you guys ideas for stuff to contribute. So even if you just have an image or something, Wowio TV is going to try and pull things together into interesting content that helps showcase the site and its members (you guys). Wowio TV isn't a big ad, obviously they don't have to sell DD to us, so they want to make sure it has content you guys actually want to watch.
I will add here, if you do want to share content, I think it will be MOST helpful if you can be specific. These guys have a lot to do, and there's a big difference there between "hey you can use my comic" and "here are some links to specific images which I think are really good".... that sort of thing.
OK, here's the ideas I sent to Wowio, so maybe this will give you ideas about things you could submit? I don't know if they'll actually DO any of these, but the more stuff they have the more they can do with it. :]
- Interviews or information from DDers (perhaps with emphasis on prominent people like Top Listers, Featured creators, community project organizers, etc)
- Comic stuff that's been youtubed or can be pulled off ustream somehow (like drawing processes, promo clips, animated bits, etc) or Flash creations already made
- short (30-60 second) user spotlights recorded yourself with whatever you want to say about DD, your comic, your process, whatever. Most cameras and phones can do video now!
- trailers or teasers for different genres, categories, ages, etc based on images sent by dders
- image/photo responses to questions like "what page are you most proud of?" and "what does your workspace look like?"
- Maybe there could be an artmeme of Drunkduck and the images could somehow be video content? Not sure what the questions would be- favorite DD feature, favorite DD comic, how comments make you feel, etc? someone who is good at those could make one!
