Mamo Frameline #1: Daniel Typed "Blog"

Here's a special bonus installment of Mamo for you, a Mamo that isn't really a Mamo. It's our first guest-hosting gig on Frameline, a radio show regularly hosted by Daniel Cockburn and Barbara Goslawski, which airs in Toronto on Fridays at 2:00 EDT, on CKLN 88.1 FM. This episode aired on Friday, August 5th, 2005.

Tune in this Friday at 2:00 for the next episode, where we continue our guest-hosting plunder. If you're not in the Toronto area, you can stream the show live at the station's web site, And of course, check back next week for our regularly-scheduled Mamo.

A big thanks to Daniel and Barbara for giving us the opportunity. We hope you enjoy it!

I agree with the one Matt, that I don't think video-blogs will ever get as big as podcasts. Even when video is easier to carry around with us, it needs your full attention compared to just audio which you can listen to while doing all sorts of things.

As for how the art of film change with video-blogs, in an interview with Wired, George Lucas thinks that the DVD market is changing movies. He thinks young film makers are looking towards the DVD market and are doing fewer and less wide, wide shots and doing more close-ups as that kind of movie plays better on tv and portable devices.

Then again, Lucas think piracy will eventually kill the $100+ million dollar budget movie and I'm not sure if that will ever happen.

I've already commented on this podcast, but have something that you guys might be interested in (if you haven't already heard about it) which deals with the topic of this podcast the Internet and films. The following creepy video has leaked on to the Internet, via peer-to-peer systems, bringing up all sorts of questions of it's orgins:

It seems to be some sort of viral marketing from Universal promoting Serenity, but apparently Universal is denying that the video originated from them. Of course by denying that it's from them, Universal is adding to the mystery, which helps this type of marketing, so they can't be trusted. Quite a different way to market a movie and quite interesting that Universal is using peer-to-peer systems to their advantage while at the same time trying to close them down with the MPAA.

For more details about the video check out the following link:

One final Serenity note, according to an Entertainment Weekly article, Universal execs will be looking for Serenity to make $80 million internationally for them to greenlight a sequel.
