My Cable Television Debut

Current TV commissioned a video about my Truth @ 15 Frames Per Second series and I am happy to announce that it will premiere on Tuesday December 16, 2008 at 11pm on the Brand Spanking New Show (Edit: Turns out this was in the UK only). I know you’ve never heard of it. It’s a cable channel Al Gore co-founded in order to democratize television or something. I’ve watched it a bit, and they have some really great stuff. It’s like an all-year short documentary film festival. If you have cable or sattelite TV you probably get it. My new provider DirecTV has it on 366. Time Warner Cable is 103 in NYC and on various other channels in other cities. Dish is 196. Comcast is 107 in most cities. AT&T U-Verse is 189. Visit their website if you can’t find it on your local provider.

If you prefer to watch television on the Internet, you can watch the video here instead.

    What model microphone (and preamp) are you using for the narration in this film? The base tones and sound quality are outstanding. (Thumbs up)

      It’s a Samson C15 studio condenser (about $50) plugged directly into an HVX-200 camera. I put a little dynamic range compression on it in FCP. The important thing of course is having a deep voice, and sticking the mic right next to my mouth.

    Just discovered you from coming across your IMDb Theaters post. As someone who shoots video content often deliberately for web and as someone who is next door neighbors with the actress in LonelyGirl15, which followed a similar approach, I found this to be an excellent piece to sum up the whole experiment. Great work and great posts.
