Convergence Journalism class update

leave a comment »

Over the last two weeks, we’ve been working hard with our writing team on a new script, one that we’ll hopefully have filmed and edited in time to present next week (though with Mizzou’s homecoming events looming this week I’m weary of making that deadline).

As we enter the second half of the semester, I think it’s time we start exploring possibilities for the distribution of our show. Our first goal of the project was to explore whether it was even possible to produce a short-form comedy news show, and I think with just one show finished, we can say yes. It’s certainly a very delicate yes, however, as we’ll have to find a way to sustain the show. Producing at regular intervals is made difficult by student schedules and relying upon comedy writers who really have no stake in the show.

I’m supposed to meet with KOMU’s Jen Reeves for a casual meeting later this week, perhaps with her I’ll brainstorm some ideas for distribution. I’m hoping there’s a space within the new KOMU iPhone app for us somewhere, and some space under the KOMU umbrella. If not, there are some other outlets I think we can piggyback (looking at you iknowcomo.com).

I’ll keep you updated!
