Blog: Net Profit

< previous next >
Sorry for the lack of UPDATES lately, I'm just coming to the end of a rather HECTIC chunk of Life Activity at the moment - it's all jolly good, but has left me a bit KNACKERED!

One ASPECT of this was a course I went to on Monday, called Net Profit: Making Your Own Web Show. It caught my eye because I've been thinking for a while that it might be fun to have a go at actually FILMING something myself, though goodness knows what. It was a RIGHT fun day, full of interesting stuff and THORTS. The most interesting thing had nothing to do with the title - they advised that, when filming out and about, make sure to record a minute's "silence" in the location, to use as background noise for different takes - but the TIPS and HINTS were many.

I hadn't realised that part of the day would be working on our own, existing, ideas for shows, so was taken by surprise when they went round the room getting everyone to PITCH their shows. Luckily I was LAST, so had a couple of minutes to come up with an idea for a 90 second puppet show about MONSTERS featuring a new song each episode, played on ukelele. When I explained it it actually sounded like a pretty good idea, and I've been MULLING OVER IT ever since!

I also got to meet some very interesting people, not least Mr J Dredge whose podcast, "The John Dredge Nothing To Do With Anything Show" is a) available at Comedy Chords and b) GRATE! I have been listening to more episodes this morning, and LARFING!

It was a REALLY interesting day, which I think they're going to be doing again. I would RECOMMEND, but if you do go try and think of a SHOW before you go, otherwise you might end up seriously considering ways to make SOCK MONSTERS!
