Running a TV channel - Shades Of Bad ... what kind of output do you need to be a web content provider?

Now we are on Opera as a TV app, the future is different.

Shades Of Bad is still a weekly 3 to 5 minute web TV series, rarely does it go over or under that, length and we have released constantly since going live a year ago.

We also have the Doris Visits travel series and also released 18 films on the Baltic in the last two weeks, plus blogs on Russia and others. Take a look at the output which now leads to compilation of the 18 varied films and a top10 and a gastronomic film. With huge output compilations become easier.

Then we have the behind the scenes films from our features and a How To Film series which this video falls under. So, although we haven't counted, we reckon about 150 films in a year. We have a target of 100 films a year to Opera for the travel show. That is running a web channel I guess....

We now are using the scheduler more and more and that means the episodes are uploaded early and scheduled to go out at later dates.

On top of that we schedule tweets to go out on the back of those episodes and a blog to go out on the back of the tweets, then tweets on the blogs on the back of the blogs. Next we have OS TV, the operating system for TV and TV apps and Opera and Strimm..... yes, check out Doris running as a TV show. So, we can't worry about hitting deadlines, we have to deal with uploads in bulk. Eventually the plan is to have a TV channel and produce a constant output, that is an interesting future. So, when someone tells you they are making a web series and it is just three or four parts, you can see where that ambition might lead.

We have a new travel show loaded to auto release each week until October when we take another cruise, this time to Iberia. In August we fly to Spain and shoot two places there as well as meet up with Status Quo whom we made Bula Quo with, at the Starlite in Marbella.

To keep all our films, blogs and web pages and the links thereto all listed, we keep a huge excel sheet of all the links, short links and blogs and blog's links we can make those marketing moves and also randomly blog.

Uploading is not straightforward and becomes a huge job that has to be done in a certain order and the boxes ticked. There are many little tricks that one has to deal with. like if you schedule a video to go out and save it, then you cannot add the film to a playlist. So you have to do things in the right order.

We have done two more films this week to help film makers and content owners build their channel, the first was the terrific interview Jean (Doris) did with our composer Mark Blackledge. That adds nicely to the film she made a few weeks ago about laying music cues on the episodes as she now has a library and lays her own music on as the others in the team start to plan films again.

This video is a film of Doris at the desk again, buried in wires, uploading films and marketing. It is an interesting insight into the workload and makes you realise that the filming side of film making is just a tiny bit of what you have to do.

Load, schedule and marketing scheduled ...... take a look.  Below.....

We are also re-designing our look and logos as we focus on an image, and Opera have asked for us to re-cut Shades OF Bad into longer episodes and rebrand it slightly. The name we are currently focussed on is DORIS SHADES of BAD.....

Enjoy a drama episode of Shades Of Bad where Jean as Doris is on a ship approaching Bergen in Norway. Jean now directs and has been directing Olympian Derek Redmond, who is back in the UK in the Kitchen .... Derek is in his screen debut. (auto available from Friday is his 6th episode)

Don't forget we have films from all over the world......  DORIS VISITS, please
