An idea that didn’t take off but deserved to – Blog Star Theater. Like most good ideas it was dead simple. Take a (more or less) random blog post. Act out a quick video inspired by the post and use the original post as a voice over.
The pilot episode, “Vote on my hair! Cut or no cut!”, is still online and hilarious. Unless you’re one of a particular breed of self-obsessed bloggers, in which case you may not see the humour.
If I had access to a video camera I would have contributed to this, but the project is abandoned, apparently. Maybe a year or so on, with increased access to broadband and video cameras and, of course, huge numbers of bloggers, Blog Star Theater is ripe for a re-launch?
