Wesley, before I go any further; are you serious about sending in any material? Are you a serious filmmaker? I donít mean to be rude but if you just want to nickel and dime me about the rules, I donít have time for it.
If youíre serious, I donít mind taking the time or even doing research. I like to help out as much as I can. That said, my entertainment background is originally in music. Iíve organized or co-organized musical entertainment for everything from clubs to charity events to special events to political campaigns. Iíve dealt with a lot of artists. There are always those who want to break the rules; those who think that anything must be allowed in order to be art.
Wesley, there are so many envelopes that need to be pushed, so many boundaries that need to be stretched other than obscenity. I hope you donít think that profanity in any way equates to artistry. Art is about truth. Yes, people use profanity in real life, but people do a lot of things other than curse as well.
With that said, to answer your question, submissions cannot have bleeps. You can cut the audio on profanity or dub it over with a word acceptable for broadcast. Whichever way you choose but it must be edited by you. As stated in the original post, we will not edit your work. We only want to air the artistís version of their work. However, it must fall within our guidelines. That much is non negotiable.
Iím not sure what you mean by the word ďopen.Ē The station will be on air as long as itís licensed or until the company goes broke.
We have licenses, permits, or applications in several other areas and we are always looking for other stations that may become available elsewhere in the Pacific Northwest. There will eventually be other stations with KWVT being the companyís flagship station.
We also plan to transition to digital as well as our current Analog broadcast since Analog will eventually be replaced by digital. Iím not too into the technical stuff so I hope I said that right.
As a local station serving a local area, of course, our first commitment is to our viewers here. Our station regularly broadcasts local events and is involved in the local community. Much of this is covered at the website.
As far as long term goals, we have many. Perhaps too many to say and some Iím not allowed to say. I can tell you this. Weíre very interested in producing original programming. Weíre working on a deal with a news group to provide a news program and weíre looking at attaining a studio that can be used to produce original programming. At this stage, plans are often introduced, changed, shot down by budget constraints, new ones introduced, old ones reintroduced, etc.
Iím personally very committed to art and have presented a lot (and I mean a LOT) of ideas. Iíve pushed very hard to lay the groundwork for producing our own programming. We hope to produce original seriesí and original movies one day.
We do aspire to make it onto satellite one day and gain a much larger viewership. That will be a LONG way into the future. Years. We are by no means a big time station. Submitting work to us will, at this stage, get you nothing but a bunch of people in the northwest of America looking at your work.
