Serious question for the /#DecentralizedWeb.

What kind of content do y'all want to see produced in the realm of media?

@deadsuperhero's video really inspires me to get on that boat of content creation (outside of other things) and I want to know from y'all.

@jalcine I'm still trying to figure this out. I think vlogs are good in practice because they can force you to keep some kind of cadence, but I also think that you have to experiment with them to keep things interesting.

Personally I'm aiming for reviews, philosophy, vlogging, and footage of cool things happening in the bay, but deep down I'd really love to do skits.

@kavbojka @deadsuperhero That's a brilliant idea. I wanna get deeper into the projects so I can give more fulfilling reviews!

@jalcine @deadsuperhero What I want most is fiction, ideally feature length but I like short films too.

I don't care about frequency, but if that's too involved for you I'll totally understand.

@jalcine @deadsuperhero omg this is so awesome. it's like if youtube was new again, except this time it's peertube. original content that's made with love because it's possible by people who just want to make it and not the crappy super commercial shit we know from elsewhere. i don't think even care what it's about at this point :)

@jalcine @deadsuperhero I really hope that content creators can bring some diversity of thought and experience to the #Fediverse.

The silo platforms too often end up as an echo chamber and I would love to hear from people whom I wouldn't easily hear from otherwise.


Between old black and white science fiction, and the silent films that were originally made/released/forgotten at a YouTube pace, I'd really like to see super fast production that focuses on imaginative stories.

There's the ability to blend and mesh styles in a lo-fi way to make great things _really_ fast these days.

I'm a crapart/album-a-day fan, so maybe that's just me, but you asked. ;)

What can you do quickly with zero budget? Can you do it faster with less?


@yam655 @jalcine I actually do have a concept in the works, one that could potentially be low-budget.

The biggest challenge is figuring out how to write the script, and get people to star in it.


Which aspect of the "how to write the script" is being tricky for you?

There's the technical side, which might benefit from

Then there's the story side. I kind of know people in the NaNoWriMo community. If you have story-related questions, I know where to find answers.


@yam655 @jalcine I've just not written a dramatic script before. I'd certainly like to try!


It sounds like you are a writer, you've just not done any scripts.

Blake Snyder's "Save the Cat" tends to be recommended by lots of folks. It is script-based, but even novelists have recommended it as it has solid advice.

The folks advocate for a novel structure that maps to movies and regularly break down movies.

The July "Camp NaNoWriMo" will include folks writing scripts. (This is as close to a monthly script challenge as they now have.)
