Treo Mobifest Loaner

Small-Screen News Channel

News Note

> Treo - Take One! Consumer Loan Program Launches for Treo Mobifest Toronto 2007: "Palm Canada today announced Treo - Take One!, an innovative consumer loan program to make Palm(R) Treo(TM) smartphones available on a loan basis to aspiring filmmakers submitting mobile movies for Treo Mobifest Toronto 2007. Film submissions for the Best "Caught on Treo" Short Shorts category must be shot on a Treo smartphone and run no more than 30 seconds. The deadline for submission is Oct. 31...." (sourcequote)

WHY I POSTED THIS: There have got to be some budding Canadian film-makers out there in the made-for-mobile category... get a move on it.

Porn at work?

Small-Screen News Channel

News Note

> Technology makes porn easier to access at work: "More than a decade after employers began cracking down on those who view online pornography at work, porn is continuing to create tension in offices across the nation — in part because laptop computers, cellphones and other portable devices have made it easier for risk-takers to visit such websites undetected...."

WHY I POSTED THIS: No duh? Like we didn't see this one coming... LOL!

Hayah Film Comp Winners

Small-Screen News Channel

News Note

> Winners and Finalists Hayah Film Competition 2007: "The Hayah Film Competition for 2007 is over and the winners have been announced...." (sourcequote)
[via Hayahfilm.com] // See more >>

WHY I POSTED THIS: It's another mobile film festival, this one in the Middle East. "The Hayah Film Competition is a section of the Middle East International Film Festival (MEIFF) in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Anyone in the Middle East can submit films, no more than five minutes long, in an iPod compatible format, in one of three categories: Student, Professional, and Amateur." (sourcequote)

Film-makers of the Middle East get your made-for-mobile entries together and enter next year.

My two cents... My gripe is that it's not truly a mobile festival, as they didn't allow viewers to download the films to their portable devices. (Films could only be viewed online.) The proof is in the pudding. If you're requiring entries to be "formatted for iPod" then the true test is to allow virtual festival participants to actually see the films on mobile devices. Maybe next year?

News Note


> New film released on YouTube: "A stop-motion animation short film, The Enterprize Inventor, was commissioned for UQ Business School's $100,000 business plan competition and released on YouTube this month...." (sourcequote)
[via UQ News Online] // Read more >>

WHY I POSTED THIS: Digital media delivered direct to the consumer is "how it's going to be." The middle-men in the old media distribution models will be in the market for jobs, as more and more media goes direct to the consumer. (The new wave middle-men will be the companies who facilitate this transfer.)

Speaking of which, maybe you've got a business plan for the competition?

Legal downloads up in UK

Small-Screen News Channel

News Note

> Legal downloads rise by 80 percent in Britain: "LONDON (Reuters) - Legal digital downloads of music and video in Britain rose by 80.6 percent during the past year to 112 million pounds, researchers said on Friday...." (sourcequote)
[via Reuters] // Read more >>

WHY I POSTED THIS: It's not that people refuse to pay for music or video, or that anyone expects artists to give away their livelihoods. (There are, of course, people who will always download illegally.) I feel the main issue here has been the fact that both the music and the movie/TV industry have (until recently) refused to offer legal options. The "old media" businesses were still stuck in the dark ages, whereas media had moved (of its "own" accord) into an age of enlightenment. Expect to see the big record labels and movie/TV studios become bigger guns in the online media market. They will have to in order to survive.

Lucky Dube Murdered

Small-Screen News Channel

News spread today of the senseless shooting death last night of South African reggae star and advocate for social justice Lucky Dube, who was killed in an apparent car-jacking shortly after he'd dropped two of his children off at a family member's home. (According to reports, Lucky's children had already exited the car when three shots rang out.) He is survived by a wife and seven children, including a three-month-old.

FYI: I will try to find a few (legal) sample downloads of his music to share with you all on tomorrow -- at the moment, I am still too frazzled to think clearly, but I had to say something... and put up a banner in his memory. (Scroll down to the footer of this column to see it.)

This has been a difficult week for the music world what with a second tragic death in as many days...


----------
UPDATE: 20-Oct-07 @ 8:38p - BOKS WIN! It may seem in poor taste to celebrate a rugby victory in the middle of such a sombre post, but...

It had been suggested by more than one of Lucky's fans that the South African rugby team, the Springboks, should dedicate their play in today's 2007 Rugby World Championship to Lucky's memory.) I watched the match online and rooted for the Boks to win it for Lucky. And they did, by beating last year's champ, England.

The following notice has been put up on Lucky's web site:

Should you wish to send a message of condolence to Lucky’s family, please email Lucky@gallo.co.za or fax on +27 (0) 11 340 9471
My heart goes out to his family. Seven children have lost a father. And the world has been robbed of a creative and talented musician.

BTW, I haven't found any (legal) free song downloads, but Lucky's web site does have four sample MP3s (song snippets) up for download.

Visit his web site to give a listen, then go buy at least one of his albums (as one would assume his family gets the royalties from said purchase): Lucky Dube audio samples.

Toše Proeski [mp3/wmv]

Like everyone else yesterday, I was shocked to hear of the untimely death of Macedonian pop star, Toše Proeski (Тоше Проески). I cannot say that I had previously been a fan. In fact, prior to yesterday's sad headlines, I had (unfortunately) never even heard of him.

For me, it was just... so tragic to hear of this young man -- only 26 and pursuing his musical dreams -- killed in an accident as he slept in the passenger seat of a car which crashed. The horror of the car accident recalled to me how fleeting and how seemingly cruel life can be, which in turn pushed me to examine and appreciate things that I hold dear.

At moments during the day (yesterday), I paused to read all the outpourings of grief from his fans around the world -- and what touched me most is that Toše was such a wonderful cultural ambassador of his homeland, both within the country and to the rest of the world. (He actually was named a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 2004, and recorded a song called "This World" which became the UNICEF anthem.)

I felt that his lifework should be commemorated in some way, and thus I put up the "in memoriam" banner now appearing in the post column header of each page. I plan to leave the banner up until his funeral on Wednesday, 17-Oct, which has been declared a day of national mourning in Macedonia.

UPDATE: I've decided to leave the banner in place for an indefinite period as Thursday, 18-Oct, has also been declared a day of national mourning in Macedonia. The banner now includes a link to this post.
Being a fanatical fan of music, I searched to find (legal) song downloads and/or sample clips to hear his voice -- which had moved so many -- for my own benefit. I thought I would share my search findings with you all today.

I discovered two of Toše's most popular songs and a music video being freely given away on one of his web sites as media downloads:
  1. The first song is called Čija si [4.53MB/128kbps/MP3] which translates as "To whom do you belong?". This single was his first big hit.
  2. The second track is called Life [2.43MB/112kbps/MP3]. It's the English version of his song "Angel Si Ti" (or "You’re an Angel”), and Toše performed it at the Eurovision Song Contest 2004 finals where he was representing Macedonia.
  3. The music video is for the song Life (above), and it's available in both a Lo-Res [2.26MB/WMV] and Hi-Res [5.78MB/WMV] version.
I'm certain that Toše's fans already have these media downloads, but there may be others, like me, who can be added to the fold.

Music inspires us to dream. It encourages us to sing along and empathize with the singer -- and because of this, music helps us to heal...

To all of those touched by this tragedy, to Toše's family, friends, and fans, my thoughts are with you.
NOTE: The above media downloads were found on Toše's alternate official web site, toseproeski-music.com, which is still online -- for how long is anyone's guess. His official web site is toseproeski.info. Both web sites now bear notices in response to yesterday's tragic accident.
