I think we will open this up to the members a little after we get the production schedule (and execution) down pat.
The potential of this community is staggering when you look at the fact we have people all over the world...
People with VIDEO CAMERAS ...
It is our hope that after we have this show really ironed out and running smoothly that we will begin asking for "ATSReports" (similar to CNN
"I-Reports" only much better
) from the membership.
Now that we have the infrastructure in place (the media portal) to make it a fairly seamless process I think this could become a very popular newscast
with such an element added to it.
For those who are asking for a "longer show" with more detail, we plan on doing "Special Editions" when there is a story that warrants it and we
can get in touch with the principals of the story to get interviews.
The base show however will most likely remain right at 10 minutes long, we've done the research (we've been working on this production behind the
scene since February) and the research undoubtedly suggests that a short, fast paced format is what works.
While HULU and and a few other mega sites have been slowly creeping the average viewing time up by way of bringing full length television content to
the web, there is a distinct difference between an informative "headline news" show and TV Sitcom or Drama series.
We do hope everyone will spread the word about this new offering and we APPRECIATE the feed back.
