This idea springs from this thread http://www.videoforums.co.uk/forum-a...-bans-ips.html .
After a lively discussion about censorship ( ! ), Marc, site owner and admin threw me a googlie.
As some of you may be aware the site has degree of you tube like functionality that is currently underused - this is a proposal and an oppertunity for discussion for a new type of net casting facility.
This is my vision.... Imagine wikipedia for film makers. A place where there was no censorship ( discuss) and that is moderated in some way ( discuss) by its users to keep it dross ( discuss ) free.
I imagine a site that seeks to promote the work of ' real ' film makers where challenging / edgy / shocking vids can find a safe home away from the censorious you tube. ( and ' safe ' stuff too )
A film broadcasting site run by film makers for film makers. It seems to me that this would entirely symbiotic with the disussion forums we have here.
I appreciate this is a huge undertaking but the nuts and bolts at the technical level are in place but clearly will need much tweaking.
I hope others can share thier thoughts and thier skills if we all go for it.
SO, what do people think?
