Orson's TV revolution that never was

18 December 2009 3:43 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Orson Welles wasn't just thwarted on the silver screen. His plans to shake up television with innovations that anticipated the YouTube era were foiled, too

When we think of Orson Welles and television, the impulse is often to smirk. The innumerable talk-show appearances, though reliably entertaining, couldn't help but seem sad in comparison to his earlier triumphs. And those ads for the likes of Findus frozen foods and Paul Masson wine were hard to take seriously even before viral video made us familiar with Welles's absurd on-set relationship with hack copy, which ranged from perfectionist quibbling to ostensibly drunken slurring.

Fair enough. Such undertakings could hardly be counted among the highlights of any career, let alone one that included Citizen Kane and Chimes at Midnight. But it's worth bearing two things in mind in between chuckles. First, the proceeds from these appearances were invariably funnelled toward one or other of »

If you've been here for some time you might recall that the Film Experience was once one of the main pushers of the phenom known as the blog-a-thon where multiple sites posted on a specific topic simultaneously. I hosted three of the largest blog-a-thons the web had ever seen at the time (Michelle Pfeiffer 2006, Vampires in Cinema 2006 and Action Heroines 2007) before collapsing from exhaustion / 'thon burnout... that happened pretty much everywhere since the sites that used to keep calendars of such events stopped keeping track, too.

The blog-a-thon has essentially been replaced by the film clubs which come in two forms: one site hosted discussions or formatted like old school 'thons with links to every site discussing the topic. The other 'thon replacement is the monthly event/tradition like, for example, StinkyLulu's awesome Supporting Actress Smackdown series which is about to hit its 34th installment. Wow. That's devotion.
