The channel needs “off-air” material which will be played continuously whenever the channel is off the air. But instead of the traditional SMPTE color bars, what I want is fish. Lots of fish. All the fish you can record on your camcorder.
Of course, there are a few rules.
- No hurting the fish.
- No annoying the fish.
- No cats!
The material will be played in a continuous loop in a segment to be called “The Fish Tank”, with royalty free music playing in the background. The music will consist of pieces composed by actual people or by a computer, whichever one causes the least trouble both technically and legally.
The tank can be as small as a goldfish bowl, or as large as a public aquarium. Just put a camcorder in front of it, press “Record”, and wait for it to stop automatically. Send me your recording, and I’ll add an on-screen credit.
That’s it! Now go fishing!
