The Spark Series, Part 1
the new dial tone
by Brian Rothe
Marc Ostrick and Michael Sean Wright set out to document a day at Blog World Expo in Las Vegas. Ostrick, Co-Founder of eGuiders, teamed up with fellow documentarian Wright, founder of nicefishfilms, to take the pulse of what some are calling the new media ‘revolution’.
The gathering of bloggers, lifestreamers and seasoned journalists provided an opportunity to dialogue with media producers from around the world.
Ostrick and Wright attempted to push the limits of the current technology, shooting with Kodak Zi8 and Flip Ultra HD cameras. The short doc is part of the conversation focused on the shifting landscape of media.
The new dial tone is a dialog among media producers, technologists and bloggers who are looking to express their ideas in the stream of the real-time web.
The filmmakers shadowed Robert Scoble, early technology blogger and evangelist, as he interacted with the influencers in social media.
“Social media… is the new dial tone,” according to author Chris Brogan.
Appearances in the new dial tone include:
Robert Scoble - Tech Blogger, Building43, @scobleizer
