    Video killed your SEO? I get this question a lot, and thought I would share some of the answers with you – about creating simple videos and video ‘SEO’ and stuff. First things first – make sure you are delivering your “why” – your value across this platform. It doesn’t need to be complicated either, but you need to connect with your audience with a clear reason. A lot of people also think that they must have a written blog… if you are more comfortable with a video blog, then just use that! But, you will need a bit of both. From the other…

  • Alabama Nixes Proposed Tax on Video Streaming, Digital Rentals

    Erik Gruenwedel
    28 Aug 2015 | 4:24 pm
    Taxes in politically conservative Alabama are as popular as a Crimson Tide college football loss. Thus, it wasn’t surprising when the Alabama Department of Revenue last month retracted a regulatory amendment that would have effectively imposed a 4% rental tax on streaming services such as Netflix. The department in June sought to extend taxes on rental digital transmissions, including transactional video-on-demand movies, TV shows, subscription streaming and audio, effective Oct. 1. The proposed tax (ADOR Rule No. 810-6-5-.09 Leasing and Rental of Tangible Personal Property) came as…

But now about to hit its third year, Trojan Horse has in fact become one of the most sort out events of the year. In fact, it sold out in March (places are limited to 500 people). So now the organisers have created a great way for people who can’t go to Portugal to still experience Trojan Horse – via ‘THU TV’ – a livestream and post produced channel.

Chris had worked on so many films, in fact, that I couldn’t fit in the book everything he had done. So I’m pleased to now present Chris’ behind the scenes notes of the making of the BAT for The Dark Knight Rises, a vehicle that required close collaboration with the director, production designer, stunts and other effects teams on the film.

    There has been so much discussion around the restructuring of Google I thought it would be helpful to post a complete list of all of the Google companies along with some key articles to better understand the restructure. The depth and breadth of their holdings are massive. The ratio of innovation and disruption across the organization is unmatched by any other holding company across the globe. A brief explanation of the holding structure of the new entity. Why some folks, like BMW are a bit ruffled about the name. Why they did it. To maintain innovation leadership. The URL for the new company…
  • Why the TV Networks should start their own MCNs.

    Jared Hendler
    4 Aug 2015 | 10:50 am
    While Hollywood was sleeping against a backdrop of cat videos, the democratization of media delivered power back into the hands of the content creators. Multi-Channel Networks (MCN), a combination of digital channel curators and digital talent agents jumped at the opportunity to sort the (YouTube) wheat from the chaff. The MCNs signed on the best talent and aggregated those channels under their umbrella to claim reach and influence in the hundreds of millions. Most Millennials now recognize and follow digital talent way ahead of those on TV. The balance of power is shifting. In response,…
  • Using Brand Data to develop the right content.

    13 Jul 2015 | 10:53 am
    The traditional television networks had to be all things to all people. In order to distribute their content, they needed deep infrastructure along with multiple broadcast, cable and FCC licensing agreements. Today everyone is a broadcaster and the costs are minimal. Brands used to have to buy their way into a network’s broader audience – now they can target their exact audience directly, while owning the content. It’s a big shift in thinking as marketers go from paid to earned and learn how rich the rewards are for bringing something valuable to an audience that will become…
  • Apple Music is a complete disaster.

    Jared Hendler
    6 Jul 2015 | 10:20 pm
    I just wrote about how Apple may be blocking Spotify from working seamlessly with their hardware. I was worried that these type of tactics from Apple may give AppleMusic the upper hand. In some ways I wanted Apple’s new service to give me a great reason to switch as all of my owned tracks still sat in iTunes and the idea of having everything integrated into one place made a lot of sense. Unfortunately, aside from the deeper hardware integration, AppleMusic was a total disaster and here’s why. Sound quality. Maybe my ears need tuning but Apple’s service is all treble and no bass.

    I love Spotify. When Beats first came out I went on the free trial and found that both the content curation and user experience (UX/UI) to be way better. For a first version I was amazed at how good Beats was. Back then Spotify was still a bit clunky and basic functions like searching your saved playlists by artist were missing from the app. But I stuck with them, for 3 main reasons. First, my playlists were all organized and saved – the main barrier to exit for most people. Second, I loved the social interaction (Facebook integration) and song sharing between friends as a personal…

    Summary: There used to be no shortages of stories about body shaming. People were being pitted against one another simply for being different, but the truth is that every person is beautiful in their own way. We each have qualities that make our souls shine just a bit brighter. It is this truth that has caused people to begin to stand up for one another, to stand up for themselves. It has become more common for people to show off this pride in a variety of ways. One such way is, of course, social media.

    James Cook
    29 Aug 2015 | 3:00 am
    London startup Shopa was meant to change the way people shop for clothes online. It wanted to turn shopping into a social media activity, which rewarded users with discounts on items if they posted items to the app. But now, just months after the company raised $11 million (6.9 million pounds) in funding, Shopa is winding down. Its CEO is out, the website has been shut down, staff members are leaving, and there are rumours that the money is gone. What was Shopa? Shopa was founded in 2012 and aimed to shake up the way people buy things online. It started off with a B2B marketplace, but…
  • Tidal trolled Apple during a live Drake performance

    28 Aug 2015 | 9:59 pm
    Tidal, the music-streaming platform co-owned by Jay Z and a cohort of top-tier music stars, appears to have upset the wrong beast. Apple reportedly warned the platform that it could face a multimillion dollar lawsuit because rapper Drake, an Apple Music artist, was set to appear at a charity event in New Orleans that was live-streamed on Tidal Friday night. According to a Page Six report, once Apple learned of Drake's scheduled appearance — in which he was to perform two songs — letters from Apple were "sent to Tidal warning that Drake cannot appear on the…

    Sometimes having no limitations is the hardest obstruction. To paraphrase the late novelist E.L. Doctorow., “[Making a movie] is like driving at night in the fog. You can only see as far as your headlights but you can make the whole trip that way.” In other words, the only way out is through. It’s hard to be spontaneous if you’re clinging to the some vague notion that what you’re doing is wrong. If you let yourself fail extravagantly, you might succeed beyond expectation. “The first draft of anything is shit.” – Ernest Hemingway The unconscious…

Pertinent to music library management, they also offer multi library access. It can suck in music files from iTunes, your NAS, your laptop or even mobile devices in the home.

Database engine improvements The first main bug fix relates to how bliss can sometimes react when changing settings. A few months back I changed bliss's database engine to a different library.

Specifically, the way the new database engine updates files on your computer's storage is a bit different; when bliss interrupts an update, sometimes the database engine gives up…

    Dan Gravell
    27 Jul 2015 | 4:00 pm
    This week we step up a level of abstraction. We take a look at, not individual music library tagging, but instead, tag schemas. That means the pre-defined tag fields (and in some case values) that may be used to tag a collection. Such pre-defined fields, when mandated by a standardisation group, could be considered de jure. But this is not the only source of a tagging scheme. Over time, music library collectors may adopt certain fields for a given purpose, or define their own label. This is called de facto. Here come five different tag fields that have been perverted from their original…

    Ask people what they know about Sacramento and they will tell you it’s the capital of California. Sports fans might mention the lowly Sacramento Kings, while radio geeks might bring up that Rush Limbaugh got his start in the market. Outside of the immediate area, few realize just how much food is grown in the valley all around the city or talk about the great restaurants and wineries in the area. The city is essentially Ground Zero for the Farm-to-Fork movement, but most people are simply not aware of this fact. So the Sacramento Convention and Visitor Bureau is out to change awareness…

    As cutbacks over the last decade have taken their toll on station staffs, the impact can be seen and felt in many ways. Physically, many stations now have wide open spaces – rows of empty cubicles, vacant offices, and even entire building wings that no longer contain people. We don’t know just how much employee counts have shrunk, but those of us who are in and out of stations all over the U.S. see the cumulative effect of tougher economic and competitive conditions. The effects of the new broadcast economy and the flurry to deliver revenue under much more difficult circumstances…

    This week on JacoBLOG, the topic of radio doing a better job of marketing itself has wafted through each post. We’ve been talking about getting away from the numbers and telling some of those great radio stories about community, service, and connection. And today will be no exception. The difference in this post, however, is that some of the best storytelling I’ve seen for a broadcast radio station came from one of the world’s most respected news sources – outside of the U.S. The story is set in New Orleans, as the nation remembers Hurricane Katrina. And in an interesting twist,…

    The only thing worse than not being competitive in your industry is not knowing who you’re competing against. In radio, stations and broadcasters continue to spend money, time, and resources on consistently squelching the other stations in town, while often not understanding the larger, dynamic media lay of the land. At Jacobs Media, we will get the call the moment a translator signs on across the street. How can it hurt us? Are they duplicating our music? Are they using our slogans? Should we block, stay the course, or do something else?  That’s not to say that these types of…

    24 Aug 2015 | 3:10 am
    We’ve all been there.  You work for a brand – or in the case of many people who read this blog – a radio station that is misunderstood and undervalued by advertisers. This radio problem very likely pre-dates Don Draper because radio stations are always in some sort of struggle with the “Mad Men” (and women) who appropriate ad dollars on behalf of their unknowing clients. In the case of radio, every format seems to come with built-in stereotypes and biases, most of which are simply unfounded. Country has often lost out because of perceptions that its audience is downscale. Rock…

    Can Facebook take over the world, like AOL did way back in 1995? Does anyone remember what a floppy disk was? Who remembers getting these seemingly relentless packages in the mail to sign up? If you grew up in the 70, 80s, & 90s, you would certainly feel a bit nostalgic when you take a look at these 2 great videos about the internet. Some one had to do it – replicate the original AOL commercial, and compare it to “the” social network, Facebook, 20 years later. It almost seems as if we have not evolved at all? Wasn’t the internet great back then? Security, Dinosaurs,…

  • The Great Narrative

    Simon Staffans
    9 Aug 2015 | 11:21 pm
    Over the summer I’ve actively tried to avoid doing what I’ve been doing for the past couple of decades – craft stories, design and produce them and tell them to an intended audience. I’ve found that I tend to absorb myself in my own projects to quite an extent, and in turn have found it difficult to find the time to take part of other stories, however interesting, timely or urgent they may be. This summer I’ve put almost everything on the shelves and concentrated on not being the producer but rather the consumer. I will admit, it has been a bit of an alarming experience. The…

    I’ve been trying to write down my experience of attending F/S 2015 several times already. It’s been difficult. Mostly because I feel what I learned – or, rather, immersed – there has yet to sink in properly. Sink in, and rise to the surface again. I agree wholeheartedly with what people have written about it to date; great blog posts by Lee-Sean and Fan and enthusiastic mentions on social media from just about everyone. The enormous luxury of spending time – exclusive, uninterrupted time – with magnificent, warm hearted, brilliant people, discussing the very things that make us…

    One evening a couple of weeks ago I found myself in deep conversation with a couple of people. Hank and Julia and I were discussing the notion of the Plan-life and its’ counterpart, the No-Plan life, reflecting on how the notion of these two impacted our own lives. The discussion continued sporadically over the next couple of days, and the more I’ve thought about it since I got home, the more I think there is a grain – or more than a grain – of truth to the matter. Most of us live Plan-lives. This includes myself, and I’ll readily admit that I’m more comfortable – or perhaps…

Among those epiphanies a couple stood out, however, one of them coming after having had a discussion about how to address your own work and your own productions.

Many have great ideas, good solid foundations for their projects. Many have a passion about what they are doing or…

  • Film Review – Eden | Mia Hansen’s Tribute to 90’s French Touch Movement

    Mia Hansen-Løve’s Eden explores Parisian dance music culture through the rise and fall of the French Touch movement with great skill and minimal melodrama – an authentic depiction of a paradise lost. Delivering a performance that suits the film’s style perfectly, Félix de Givry plays Paul, a DJ inspired by the career of the director’s brother, Sven Hansen-Løve. His descent is saddening, but it is difficult not to get caught up in the exhilaration when he first deciphers the chords of Liquid’s Sweet Harmony. With a magnificent soundtrack which includes Frankie Knuckles, MK…

    Bizarre Culture
    22 Jul 2015 | 3:41 am
    Mia Hansen-Løve’s Eden is proving to be the dance music film of the year. It is an authentic yet melancholy exploration of Paris’s dance music culture in the 1990s and 2000s, following the French House, Deep House and Garage clubs in which her brother, Sven was immersed. Indeed, Sven Hansen-Løve, of the DJ duo Cheers, serves as the inspiration for the character of Paul in this semi-biographical film. We caught up with him at Soho House a few hours before a screening of Eden to learn more about his creative input, his views on Hollywood’s depiction of DJs and, of course,…

    Since the turn of the Millennium, there has been a distinct change in the art of documentary filmmaking. Where documentaries used to be unpopular to filmgoers due to the journalistic narration style, filmmakers now see the medium as a way to express themselves creatively. Storytellers have seen documentaries as a chance to explore the line between fact and fiction, whilst finding funding and distribution easier to come by. Over the past 14 years, documentaries have engaged a much wider audience with Film Festivals such as True/False Film Fest, Locarno, Visions Du Reel, IDFA, Hot Docs, LIDF…

    24 Aug 2015 | 9:23 am
    One of the hardest things to do in today’s business environment is balancing the things in your business that you love to do with the things you need to do. Outsourcing the things we do not like to do or do not do well is the ideal solution; however, whether we are a solopreneur wearing all the hats, have a part time VA or a we have a whole team helping out, it can still be a juggling act.
