Hi. So...here's my post. It's also attached as a word doc. Let me know if
I'm leaving anything out.
New TV Network, Current offers development deal for best 1-5min video
Hi. My name is Josh Soskin. I'm the Content Coordinator for the Current
Studio at Current TV, (www.current.tv <http://www.current.tv/> ) a new
television network set to launch on August 1 into 20 million homes. We are
going to be the only network ever to open themselves up to independent
filmmakers as well as anyone with a camera, an interesting story and a
desire to make television as opposed to just passively watching it.
As one of our first projects we're asking for 1-5 min non-fictional pieces
for one of three topics (see below). The top five finalists will be posted
on our site and voted on by the on-line community. The winner will get a
Studio development deal of $3,000 to work with one of our producers to pitch
and create three 3-5 minute pieces that will air on Current when we launch.
Even if you don't win, if we air any part of any of the submission, we will
pay a minimum of 250 dollars and you'll be a credited creator televised on
our growing national network.
If you have any questions feel free to email me at jsoskin at currentmedia.com
If you want more info on Current, who we are, the contest, our community
meet-ups, etc. go to our website, www.current.tv <http://www.current.tv/>
Here are the three prompts that you can also find on our site:
Does your job redefine the 9-5? Do you have the most incredible, bizarre, or
mindless gig in the world? Show us what you do for a living, or someone who
has a great job that you wish you had.
Show us how you pray. Jesus or Allah, yoga or tantra, churching or surfing.
Is Paul Okenfold or Bob Marley your high priest? What connects you to the
Got style? Turn the camera on yourself, a friend, or a fashionista walking
by and show us what's in, or what should be out.
Don't forget to check out our site. It's fun: www.current.tv
