Wanted: A Few Good Environmental Videos
If you have a great story to share, ENN has a compelling way for you to reach a new audience. Well known as the best Internet destination for environmental news and information, ENN recently added ENN TV to its diverse suite of media products. Whether you work for an environmental organization, government agency, or environmentally focused business, or whether you're simply an individual with conviction, imagination, and a video camera, ENN TV can get your message across in style.
“People ask me all the time, 'So, what's new in the media world?'" says ENN TV General Manager Jerry Kay. "The truth is, on one level there really is nothing new, beyond the issue of consolidation. Media outlets -- radio, TV, newspapers, magazines -- are still doing the same things they've been doing for decades."
Kay continues: “The big change we're seeing is in the trend toward digital media and away from analog media. With digital equipment costs so low, what was formerly a barrier to entry into video production -- price -- has become a negligible issue for many people, dramatically increasing the pool of potential 'producers.'"
Kay points to the fact that a job that used to require the use of a $10K video camera can now be accomplished by a cell phone. "Amazingly, some of the first and most striking images of December's tsunami and Hurricane Katrina were actually captured by cell phones.”ť Anyone can be a producer and use video as a way of communicating a mission, conveying a message, or sharing a passion with the world.
If you have a video that might resonate with the ENN audience, please email a brief synopsis to Jerry Kay at firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration. Submissions may be a maximum of five minutes long, and, if accepted, may be delivered in DVD or DV tape format.
