“We will focus our video cameras on the people, places and things unique to the Olympic Peninsula,” said Jeff Chew, the Web-video channel’s senior producer and longtime North Olympic Peninsula journalist who co-owns the site in partnership with videOly.tv Creative Director Dana Hogenson.
Chew, formerly the Peninsula Daily News’ Sequim-Dungeness Valley editor, is traveling around the Olympic Peninsula to record and produce video stories about people, places and things unique to the region.
“We reach out to the crowd, our audience, encouraging those on the Olympic Peninsula with video-capable smartphones, digital tablets and video cameras to shoot short clips of newsworthy events and breaking news, then email them to us in a timely fashion at firstname.lastname@example.org to post on the channel,” Chew said.
Once fully launched, videOly.tv’s social design ultimately will allow viewers to comment on videos, add their own clips and chat directly with the site’s producers.
Chew said videOly viewers are invited to act as the channel’s advisory board members.
The site will be supported through video and Web ads, program sponsors and investors.
“We are also in the process of raising startup capital through the crowd-funding site kickstarter.com,” he said.
Chew is available to speak about, and teach, mobile-video shooting, editing and script-writing to Peninsula individuals, classrooms, groups and organizations interested in contributing to videOly.tv.
For more information, phone Chew at 360-452-0826 or email email@example.com.
