set to change the way internet TV and video journalism is created and the way Vancouverites
interact with and view their city. VancouverIAM.com is a unique online platform and
new destination for people who want to know what’s going on in Vancouver. It provides
Vancouverites with the tools and support to become video journalists, Internet TV
and film producers, and active commentators on local politics and everyday issues
about life in Vancouver. VancouverIAM.com is also providing specialized Internet TV
channels to a range of local organizations that already include Vancouver Film School,
Greenpeace Canada, Women in Film & Television Vancouver and the Vancouver Whitecaps
“VancouverIAM.com is changing the media landscape by promoting locally created and
locally focused Internet TV and video journalism,” said VancouerIAM.com creator George
Fleming. “With the IAM websites, user-generated content is taking a major step towards
challenging mainstream media. With low-cost HD video cameras and easy-to-use editing
software now widely available, mainstream media production values are now accessible
to anyone with a few hundred dollars and a computer.”
Two of VancouverIAM.com’s most unique components are its educational and mentoring
programs designed to support both amateur and professional video producers, while
also bringing Vancouver’s growing local Internet TV and indie film production community
together, and providing them with a place to showcase and promote their content.
VancouverIAM.com’s Video Journalism Program supports the development and production
of cutting-edge, local video journalism by local citizen reporters and film, new media
and journalism students. The IAM Network Fund assists media producers and students
in the creation of original Internet TV series.
“Citizen Journalists are the new recorders of history and their message matters,”
said Fleming. “VancouverIAM.com presents local stories and stories from locals in
a way that mainstream media and other online sites can not support. We want Vancouverites
to use VancouverIAM.com to discuss, debate and rant about local issues and explore
what their city has to offer in a whole new way.”
Over the next year, the IAM Network is planning to launch websites in cities across
North America, followed by key international locations. TorontoIAM.com and SeattleIAM.com
are both set to go live before the end of the June.
Not much of interest at web2.0 conf in SF seams the dotcom boom is slowing – lots of big talk but not much innervation – still lots of money running around though…
Am a few hours north of SF, found a nice abandoned house overlooking the pacific surrounded by pine trees and redwoods, have been camping out there for the last few days – meet a nice Austrian cuppale in the VW camper van who I invited to stay – its sunny but windy.
The sea lians and deer are friendly, the volutes and eagles cureas – the is a beautiful turfed sapphire blue bird with a crest who comes and eats my bread creambs.
My solar editing system is giving me trubbale- think the sun is too strong here so editing going slow.
Next big stop Portland…
