Andy Coon’s latest podcast underscores what great partners the vlogosphere and citizen journalists make.
Andy, Final Cut producer and filmmaker, hosts a consistently informed site for film tech & style. He also conducts podcast interviews with top talent on the documentary scene. And he just scored big — both for content and for his readers/listeners.
Brian Conley, producer of Alive In Baghdad, interviewed with Andy today on the genesis of the Baghdad series. They also discuss what it’s been like producing weekly online videos about the day-to-day life in Iraq.
Not to harp on this point, but to offer context for those who haven’t viewed this series yet:
Alive In Baghdad and Brian’s staff won top honors at the Vloggies; it’s a funny sounding event sponsored by Podtech. And it’s the Oscars for online video material.
The Alive In Baghdad series won:
Best Vlog (with a standing ovation at the San Fran ceremony)
Best Group Vlog
Best Political Vlog
Favorite Interview Vlog
It’s tremendous what these guys are able to share with the world via the Net — and equally so for Andy to discuss the nuts-n-bolts behind their program and philosophy.
