This morning Jessi
sent me a link to an article
about a new BU class
on making 'mobisodes'. A mobisode, if you don't know (which I didn't), is a movie shot with cell phones. A very cool application of cell phone technology, and definitely in line with the current trend of 'user-generated content'.
Seeing as I'm now the Editor in chief of a cellphone technology news site
, I figured I should probably do something with this information. Fortunately, in addition to being engaged to someone with a master's degree in Public Relations, I spent a pretty good amount of time working for a PR firm. Sure I was doing their IT, but I definitely learned a lot about the way media and PR works. So I had a pretty good idea of what to do next.
If you read the BU Today article I linked to
you may have noticed that the idea for the class came partly from Seth Cummings, co-founder and VP of amp'd mobile
, one of those new, upstart mobile phone companies like Boost Mobile
and Metro PCS
. On Tuesday afternoon I'll be interviewing him for a piece which will (obviously) then be published on cellphontechnews.com
So if anyone has any questions for him, especially about the class or cellphone multimedia applications in general, please let me know and I'll do my best to get them into the interview.
