VOGMA: A Video Blog Manifesto

Adrian Miles gives a good video blog manifesto:

“vogma: a manifesto [ in no particular order ]

1. a vog respects bandwidth

2. a vog is not streaming video (this is not the reinvention of television)

3. a vog uses performative video and/or audio

4. a vog is personal

5. a vog uses available technology

6. a vog experiments with writerly video and audio

7. a vog lies between writing and the televisual

8. a vog explores the proximate distance of words and moving media

9. a vog is dziga vertov with a mac and a modem

10. a vog is a video blog where video in a blog must be more than video in a blog”

  • andrew jones says:

    adrian probably brought up vertov because of his experiental movie in the 1920’s – “Man With a Movie Camera”
    if vertov had a mac and a modem, he would probably Vlog – i guess that is what adrian means.
