Up Front Sunday Morning:

It was nice to open the paper this morning and see several jobs listed in the Eugene area that will be of interest to readers. About time, I say.

Please let me know if you change your e-mail address. Students who graduate usually loose their student account one term after they leave an institution. Please keep me informed of e-mail address changes.

A call for entries in the 30th Northwest Film and Video Festival has been made. A juried survey of new moving image arts by independent Northwest film and videomakers, the Festival draws over 300 entries in all genres each year and is judged by a prominent filmmaker, curator or critic. Now in it's 30th year, the Festival provides a forum where outstanding independent work receives public recognition, critical appraisal and an engaged and enthusiastic regional audience. Generally, 30-45 shorts, features and documentaries are screened during the Festival, then 10-15 shorts are selected for the Best of the Northwest Tour program which travels the following year throughout the Northwest to media arts centers, museums, arts councils and universities. The deadline is August 1st.

Another call for video and film has been made by the New York festivals. The deadline for entries in September 15.

I like to point out articles that discuss the multimedia planning and development process and how important pre-planning is to the creation of a successful product. The Coffee Shop is an article in the current Producer Magazine that examines the development of a mini-kiosk that puts grocery shoppers in touch with the Starbucks brand.The store shelf has become a battlefield of competing coffees. Starbucks decided to use a small interactive display nestled on the shelf that will help customers learn more about their products. The article follows the design and production of the video and interactive content.

Nominate yourself, a client or a peer for AV Video Multimedia Producer 's annual competition, the Top Producers. They arelooking for the best and brightest creators of business media for training, presentation, education, and sales and marketing applications. Enter now! The deadline is July 28, 2003. Entry form available on line.

Cheers, Gary

DID YOU KNOW? Facts about Oregon Media Personalities

According to a Eugene Register Guard article, "Change Up," a baseball documentary by Loren Mendell and Eugene filmmaker Tiller Russell, is one of 80 to be screened during the fifth annual da Vinci Film & Video Festival, being held July 18-20 in Corvallis.

From the Dominican Republic come two teenage baseball players,best friends, competing against each other to live the American dream. One will get signed by a pro team for close to a million dollars, the other may never leave the Dominican Republic. This is their story. The 45 minute documentary will remind many of the classic basketball film, Hoop Dreams.

While researching the Dodger’s Dominican Republic baseball academy earlier this year, filmmakers from Hollywood’s Angry Young Ranch production company stumbled upon Alex Sosa, 18 and Pepey Rodriguez, 16, pitchers who had dropped out of high school to pursue careers in baseball. The movie, shot primarily in Santo Domingo, follows the two teens-both of whom throw better than 90 mph-through the ups and downs of their auditions for scouts, and it culminates in the player’s signing with big league clubs. Much like Hoop Dreams, the film portrays the heavy burden placed on the boys whose families are counting on them to strike it rich.

Tiller Russell worked as a crime reporter in the San Francisco bay area and traveled extensively through Latin America before earning a Master's degree from USC film school. Prior to that, Tiller earned a B.A. from Cornell University.

Founded in 2001 by Loren Mendell and Tiller Russell, Angry Young Ranch, LLC is dedicated to making hard-hitting films about socially relevant themes. The pair’s first project, Cockfight, was an award-winning documentary about the bloody and controversial world of underground rooster fighting. They've gone on to produce projects in Japan, the Dominican Republic and the United States. Change Up is the most recent film from Angry Young Ranch and the first episode of Prospects, a reality-sports series about young athletes.

DISCUSSION:It's The Story That Keeps Your Audience's Attention

Many begin their careers in media thinking that it is the technology and special effects that make a web site, CD ROM, video, film, or other media product effective. These are indeed important design elements. But it is the telling of a good story that attracts and holds an audience. It is a story that contributes to making your commercial, web site or any other media effort a success.

You might not realize that you are involved in telling stories because your clients are business, service, or education oriented. But every agency has a story to tell and in the telling you attract an audience to the services and products your client hopes to market.

People have used story telling for centuries for the transmission of ideas and the conveying of values. From the visual cave paintings of Lascaux to the earliest forms of print and now digital media, humans have used the tools of the day to communicate.

What is a story? People probably can't agree on a definitive answer that covers all possibilities of storytelling. But cognitive research suggests that the brain functions best when it recognizes familiar patterns and relationships. Stories provide such stimulation.

We often recall a story much better than specific facts and figures. Actually, stories can often be used to facilitate remembering more complex data.

Advertisers have become the storytellers of our time. The family oriented image of McDonalds is carefully crafted using a story about a dad who brings the kids to enjoy family fun together at McDonalds. Or Nike tells stories about athletic endeavors facilitated by their shoes, apparel, or equipment. Some stories are traditionally linear. Others may take different forms.

The journalist's traditional question of who, what, where, when, and why provide based components for some familiar story lines. Elaboration on these basic elements embellish a story and facilitate remembering a particular client's services or products. Lets look at a McDonalds commercial as an example.

Who – a family
What – goes out to eat
When – for lunch
Where – at Mc Donalds
Why – because Mc Donalds offers quick affordable meals; because dad can't cook; or its a special birthday - you pick the reason.

The designer now uses the craft of storytelling of set-up, conflict, and resolution through media to add the dramatic, visual, and audio elements that will facilitate an emotional connection between the viewer and the product.

Although we have focused above on the micro-story most often told through TV commercials we can also think about a web site as a place where a different type of story might be told through words, images, and sound. For example, The Roxanne hotel (fictional) was built in the 1930's but recently updated with a retro theme that should appeal to those looking for something different.

The web designer is challenged to market a hotel that may have met its fate with the wreaking ball if it investors hadn't found and turned it into a classic place to stay.

The hotel has many stories to tell from it's 70-years of serving patrons. Perhaps it is the story of Mouser, the elderly cat that sleeps in the hotel lobby giving the place the warmth of animal companionship, that becomes the focus for marketing. Telling how Mouser appeared one rainy night and was taken in from the storm by Red, the midnight Bell Captain, creates a sense of place and time. Because the cat has remained a fixture for so long some have come to assume he's been there since the hotel's beginning. The story of Mouser becomes the theme used throughout the web pages. Perhaps he is used as an iconic reminder that this hotel is not a branch of some mega hotel chain, but a small boutique venue that provides warmth and comfort in a home-like setting.

Stories serve the purpose of drawing people to your client's product for many different reasons. Stories,well told, are why people remain at the site and when they leave they remember an affective experience. Chances are they will recall later the product or service you were marketing. It isn't the "flash animation" that makes the sale it is the presentation of the content. The story and how it is told facilitates the transmission, delivery, reception, and recall of the message you've masterfully crafted.

WHY ARE SPAMMERS BACKING SPAM-CONTROL LAWS? Bigtime spam-mongers and junk-mail proponents like the Direct Marketing Association are backing proposed antispam legislation, while consumer and public-interest groups, almost without exception, oppose the bills. What's going on? "It's a sign of who benefits from these bills and who doesn't," says a spokesman for the Coalition Against Unsolicited Commercial Email. "When you see some of the biggest spammers in the country backing legislation that is allegedly antispam, you really need to wonder about what these bills actually do." The answer is that rather than banning all unsolicited e-mail outright, as many consumer groups wish, they legitimize
spam, as long as the perpetrators adhere to certain rules, such as using accurate subject lines and valid return addresses, and allowing recipients to opt out of future mailings. Two bills are currently making their way through Congress and a variant of thereof is expected to pass overwhelmingly and be signed into law later this year.

IMPLANTABLE MICROCHIP STRIKES A CHORD IN MEXICO Palm Beach, Fla.-based Applied Digital Solutions, maker of the implantable VeriChip, is targeting consumers south of the border, where people see the tiny devices as a possible new way to thwart crime. The microchips, which are available in the U.S. as well, are implanted under the skin and can be used to link to information on identity, blood type and other information housed on a central computer. In Mexico, citizens hope the tiny devices could prove one more weapon in the arsenal needed to combat a rising wave of kidnappings, robberies and other crimes. The Mexican company in charge of distribution says it hopes to implant 10,000 chips in the first year and ensure that 70% of all hospitals contain the technology necessary to read the chips. Company officials say they are working on developing a similar technology that would use satellites to locate people who've been kidnapped, an application that is popular with Mexicans, but has raised privacy concerns in the U.S. (AP 18 Jul 2003) Source:NewsScanDaily

COMMODORE GETS NEW GUARDIAN ANGEL Ironstone Partners, the company that's licensing the Commodore 64 brand from Tulip Computers, says it wants to become "the guardian angel" of the brand, which is recognized in the Guinness Book of Records as the best-selling computer ever. The machine gained its initial popularity in the early 1980s, and 20 years later still has more than 6 million enthusiasts. Darren Melbourne, the creative director of Ironstone, has assured Commodore's "huge, dedicated fan base" that Ironstone loves them: "Fan sites are inviting donations and having problems. Without them, the C64 would have died out 10 years ago, and our immediate goal is to try and help them. We have been around the block with this machine a few times -- we were making games for it 20 years ago -- so the very last thing we want to do now is make enemies."

SOME HEALTHY REASONS TO LOG ON TO THE INTERNET A new study by the Pew Internet & American Life Project found that 80% of U.S. adults online use the Internet to find health information. It's clearly a case of "news-you-can-use": the No. 1 searched-for health topic is information about a specific disease or medical problem; the No. 2 search topic is information about a specific medical treatment or procedure. Three-fourths of the searchers surveyed said the Net has improved the quality of the health information and services available to them. The downside? The Pew study found that only about one out of every four searchers thoroughly checked the source and timeliness of online information. (USA Today 16 Jul 2003)

MICROSOFT FLAW: A NEW STAGE OF DELIRIUM. Microsoft has acknowledged a critical vulnerability in most versions of its Windows operating system software, including its latest Windows Server 2003 software. The vulnerability (first pointed out by researchers in Poland known as the "Last Stage of Delirium Research Group") could be used by network vandals to seize control of a victim's Windows computer over the Internet, stealing data, deleting files or eavesdropping on e-mail messages. The Server 2003 software was sold under the highly promoted "Trustworthy Computing" initiative launched last year by Microsoft founder Bill Gates. The company urged customers to immediately apply a free software patch available from Microsoft's Web site. Internet Security Systems, an Atlanta-based computer firm, characterized the Windows flaw as "an enormous threat." (AP/San Jose Mercury News 17 Jul 2003) Source:NewsScanDaily

DECLINE IN FILE-SWAPPING ATTRIBUTED TO RIAA THREATSThe recording industry's threats to sue individuals who involved in illegal music file-swapping are generating results, according to Nielsen/NetRatings, which reports use of popular file-trading sites such as
Kazaa and Morpheus have dropped by 15% since the end of June. "I would definitely say it's not a coincidence that the numbers fell that far," says a Nielsen/NetRatings senior analyst. "A drop this significant probably has some kind of external cause." The Recording Industry Association of America issued its threat on June 25 and says it plans to start filing copyright infringement lawsuits next month. Officials at StreamCast Networks, which distributes Morpheus software, disputed the Nielsen/NetRatings findings, maintaining that there had been no perceptible decline in the number of visitors to its site, and the company plans to release a new version of Morpheus that will enable users to upload and download files through proxy servers in an effort to shield their identities online.

A SEARCH ENGINE FOR THE WORLD'S POOR. Researchers at MIT are designing a search engine geared to the needs of computer users in the world's disadvantaged countries, most of whom have only sporadic access to the Web at what are often less-than-optimal bandwidths. "Let us assume you are in Malawi," says professor Saman Amarasinghe of MIT's Laboratory for Computer Science, "and the computer lab does not have access to the telephone line all the time. If you want to find some new information about malaria, you are prompted with a message that says 'we are going to send a query through e-mail, is it OK?'. At night, when the phone line is available, the teacher can dial out and send the queries." The request is routed to computers at MIT, which then perform the search and filter the results, choosing the most relevant. These results are then sent back to the computer in Malawi. "Next morning the teacher can connect, download that e-mail and when the students arrive, they can browse through those pages the way they would if they had full Internet connectivity." Amarasinghe says most search engines are geared toward Western users who are cash-rich but time-poor. "The idea is that developing countries are willing to pay in time for knowledge. In the West when we surf we want the information in the next two seconds. We are not willing to wait." (BBC News 15 Jul 2003) Source:NewsScanDaily

Network Tools (From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1.)

iSync 1.1 Gone are the days of repetitive address book and calendar management, thanks to Apple Computer's new iSync software. Mac users who maintain these items on both a computer and a supported portable device can keep them fully synchronized. Rather than having to re-enter data, a iSync simultaneously updates both devices via a wireless connection. Although the number of supported devices is still somewhat limited, it has grown since the previous version and includes mobile phones, PDA's, and Apple's iPod. Many useful features are incorporated into iSync's straightforward interface, making it a timesaving alternative to manually managing personal data. This tool can be acquired free of charge after a brief registration.

Smart Popup Killer 1.25 Possibly the most irritating distractions when surfing the Web are pop-up advertisements. Not only do they detract from a site's intended content, but they can also reduce the speed of downloading other documents. Smart Popup Killer attempts to block these annoyances, as well as addressing other common concerns of Web users. For example, the software can "automatically clean cookies to protect privacy online." Recognizing that some popup items may be acceptable to users, the Smart Popup Killer has a list of user-defined trusted sites that are allowed to load such ads. It is available at no cost from this Web site.
