Full Steam Ahead

The Beach Hut Interior

The Vobes Team, Mr. Pegram and Jeff Mahoney and I are really cracking on with the new video project and everything is taking shape. Jeff is in Ohio and although not actually involved in the set construction, he is beavering away on the IT side of things and looking after the website and potential outlets for the programming once it is together. Mr. P and I have been sloshing paint about and knocking up windows for the set.

I know a lot of people think I am barking mad having a full sized beach hut television style set constructed in my front room, but I really do not have anywhere else to build one. Apart from the inconvenience of not being able to sit in the room and watch television, it really is useful from a script writing and rehearsal point of view.

Of course, having gone to the effort of making a set, it dawned on me that I could make a second one with out too much trouble by simply painting the other side of the ‘flats’ as they call the beach hut walls in theatre land and have say a kitchen set. My main problem is that because the beach hut set is full size and has been built in the room we are using, it cannot be removed and stored out the way as it doesn’t fit through the normal sized door.

Production hopefully will start soon on the programmes and transmission will be in November, with a few test and demo shows in October.

.Net Magazine that I shall be featured in.

I have been interviewed for .Net Magazine, a very popular consumer user magazine that is about the use of the Internet for beginners and enthusiasts. It tells you how to build websites, the latest social media services arising, what to do to avoid spam and virus attacks and which web sites are cool and groovy. I am going to be in the November edition in the back room boys section apparently, answering questions on my podcasting. Should be good.

So for the time being it looks like it is full steam ahead. You know there are not enough hours in a day to get everything done. I must get round to writing the scripts…
