How to appear on your favourite TV gameshow

5 July 2017 7:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dave Lawrie Jul 6, 2017

Using his experience on Robot Wars, Total Wipeout and more, Dave shares some tips for anyone wanting to appear on a TV gameshow...

Have you ever watched a TV show and thought 'I’d quite like a go at that', quickly replaced by the follow-up thought 'but I’m not sure that I could?'

Me too.

My name is Dave and I have now been involved with five TV productions at various levels. I have auditioned for The Weakest Link, been part of a pilot that never made it to air, and featured as a contestant on Total Wipeout, Ninja Warrior UK and Robot Wars. I suffer from low self esteem and rollercoaster depression and I have found no finer therapy for it than the character-validating world of television production.

10 Trends in the International TV Business

22 April 2017 1:36 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Paris — Variety held its first-ever TV Summit Europe in Paris on Thursday at its Series Mania TV festival. At it, key top executives from Europe and the U.S. analyzed their production strategies in a vibrant, if complex, international TV drama market. 20th Century Fox’s Manuel Alduy summed up the studio’s strategy in international as “diversification.” That could be said of many companies as, outside the U.S., they ring multiple production options along a global-local axis and as scripted series boost channels’ market shares, by as much as 26% for ITV and 35% for Denmark’s TV2, according to a EuroData TV Drama Overview presented at Series Mania. Below, incorporating news and analysis from the Summit and the whole of Series Mania, are 10 observed cutting-edge trends in  the international TV business:

1.The Split

“Distribution will go through mobile and telecom [companies], that, [given[ the way they are shaping the convergent world, are key partners. The only way to build scale in the game is to partner with these telcos,” said Dominique Delport, chairman, Vivendi Content (pictured), in a spirited keynote conversation at the Variety TV Summit Europe, explaining why Vivendi, the France-based communications group, has rebuilt as a premium content creator-producer. Increasingly, series look to split two ways: Those that can build decisive brand and subscriber driven value for telecoms, digital platforms and big pay TV platforms; the remainder. This explains why Vivendi, despite being Europe’s second biggest pay TV operator, has created Studio Plus, an app delivering digital first, premium short-form series produced by Vivendi Content that it is actively selling to telecoms worldwide. Launched in Feb. 2017, telco clients include Spain’s Telefonica-Movistar Plus, Brazil’s Vivo, Telecom Italia and France’s Bouygues TV and Orange. Studio Plus subscriptions stand at 200,000; Vivendi targets 2 million by year-end, said Delport. Vivendi is in talks with “30-to-50 telcos today,” among them three of the top four U.S. telcos, he added.

Peter Molyneuex offers up hint about new game Legacy

3 April 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Recently, the video game industry has not heard very much from Peter Molyneux. He is, however, working on a new title as we speak, but you would be forgiven if this is the first time you are hearing about it. The name of the game is Legacy, and details are scarce. However, in an interview with Glixel, Molyneux did let one detail slip:

“The only thing I think is wise to tell you is that it’s very different. One of the things I am proud of is the number of different genres that I’ve attempted. At the moment, it’s hard to peg what genre Legacy falls into.” When asked for further details, Molyneux replies: “I think it would be a mistake to talk about it.”

Peter Molyneux’s 2013 title ‘Godus’.

RoboCop 2

11 March 2017 5:15 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

It’s ugly, it’s violent, it’s graphic novelist Frank Miller’s nasty vision through and through. Scream Factory’s Collector’s Edition brings out the amazing backstory of the production of this stop-motion- intensive first sequel to RoboCop. Druglord Caine is a menace, but we’re just as appalled by the film’s vivid depiction of a greater terror: Predatory Privatization.
