BLOGUMENTARY PREVIEW TRAILER v1.0
You know you want it! Rebecca Blood
, Matt Haughey
, Meg Hourihan
, Jason Kottke
, Anil Dash
, Jeff Jarvis
, David Weinberger
, and all those funny people on the street who don't know what a blog is. And a few who do
. It's all here in my first crack at a trailer for Blogumentary
, which I was up all night editing and FedEx'd to Vienna for the blogtalk
conference. I touch on several themes: blog origins, 9/11 impact, relationships. I didn't even get to journalism, one of my main themes. Much more work to do getting the blog story. Work like this
. I want to talk to that blogger in Kentucky, find the bloggers you haven't heard of who are making (or breaking) relationships with their blogs, making their voices heard, telling their story.
That's why I need you, dear blogfan. "What? Me? But, but... how can I help? Also, why would I help cuz I don't actually like you or your stupid movies?" Well here's how, blog-hater. Note the shiny new PayPal link
, which is currently my only source of funding for this documentary. Now, you could certainly do other things with your blog monies... you could give it to the fat kid
or the naughty girl
for example, both frigging excellent causes. But let's talk about the real
cause celeb. This is bottom-up. This is open-source. You
are the celeb, you superstar. And you oughta be in pictures:
and I will link your name on a very special Thank You web page
will get your name in the credits. And the link.
Ready for your closeup? You appear in Blogumentary
. Seriously. It might only be for two seconds, and I might make fun of you, but you'll be there. "You sellout whore!" you say. Ha ha ha, oh mom! Seriously, I don't have any ethical problem with this. It's alternative funding. Also, it's my documentary and I can do whatever I want, including interview my cutting edge funders -- why not?
gets you an Executive Producer credit and, I don't know, a blow job or something.
