Wild Palms (1993) from Oliver Stone a far away future or…

23 04 2008

The other week we were talking about holograms, and then we remembered the serie Wild Palms from Oliver Stone, I don’t know if it made it to Belgium, but this serie is sc-fi drama about the brainwashing through drugs and technology. Church Windows will be the first show to air in this method, where the action will take place in living rooms across the country, and people will be able to interact with the reality. You will see the use of holograms, virtual reality, we are in the Year 2007 in Los Angeles…, oliver stone was close with his timing!

Pangea day on May 10TH 2008

11 04 2008

The day the world comes together trough film!

Pangea day’s goal is to bring together millions of people from all over the world in a unique shared experience and form a global community striving for a better future!

Pangea Day is sponsored by Nokia Connecting people!

Pangea day was created by documantary maker Jehane Noujaim. In a world where people are often devided by borders, differences and conflict, it’s easy to lose sight of what we have in common. Pangea Day seeks to overcome that.

Al lot of the video footage was taken by mobile devices, Nokia also send smartphones to refugee camps, so also those people could film there thoughts or experiences.

I think this is a great initiative, which we should all support! See what happens on May 10th!!

The pangea comes from 250 million years ago, when all continents were still together and not yet split by oceans. the break up started like 180 million years ago!

Bebo and myspacetv will become full blown media platforms, and bring tv series or webisodes to a next generation. Just as with mySpace, Bebo its target audience is teens and 20+.

Bebo has 40 million members mainly in the UK. Bebo was sold for 850 million dollars in CASH! to AOL a Time Warner company. Bebo is already profitable more then a year now, and in good shape! Branded content will become more and more important.

At Bebo they see less user generated content, and professional conent is taking over. The video content is from broadcasters and is completly owend, the social network is used as a distribution platform.

Content is still very important, and needs to be quality! The storyelling and so forth is very important. Spicing this with all the community features we all know, this will become a powerfull medium!
