(PRWEB) April 2, 2005
Ludington Media, Inc today announces the launch of MediaBlab Premium, a subscription service featuring in-depth tutorials and how-to help for people looking for ways to create, edit and share music, podcasts, movies, and video clips with friends and family. The subscription is delivered via email, secure RSS and PDF to provide preferred information in the way readers want it.
Personal publishing is exploding with the popularity of podcasting and video blogging. The Me Media revolution started with text blogging and is rapidly expanding to audio and video with a similar reckless abandon to discover how to share a personal message with potential listeners and viewers. People have been recording amateur video for years, but only recently have the tools become easy to both record and share with the world. This insurgence of personal creativity isn't aimed at building an audience of 1 million viewers and selling out to a major production company. Personal publishing represents the empowerment of the individual to create and publish in many formats, bypassing the gatekeepers to the system and directly reaching the people most interested in the content. MediaBlab Premium arms these budding creative geniuses with the knowledge to go forth and create.
It's taken years to baby step through this evolution with individuals finding a budget to produce and release independent music recordings and to a lesser degree films. High financial barriers to entry kept the majority from wading through the creative process unless they really had something to say or if they had the financial backing to make it happen. The tools to create are now affordable with 3CCD digital video cameras available for about $600 and acceptable voice recording possible with a $10 microphone. Pro-quality editing software is available for free for both audio and video. MediaBlab Premium aims to help level the playing field, delivering timely information and answering the challenging questions related to how to make great media.
The tools to create content are widely available to anyone. Learning to create something people will listen to or watch is a little more complicated. It's easy to create a video or record your thoughts and save them as a digital file, but creating something that looks and sounds good is harder than just creating. A bigger challenge is learning how make your content available to the public and discovering strategies to get your voice heard above the cacophony of options available online without incurring massive financial investments. This is where MediaBlab Premium comes into play, providing illustrated tutorials, reviews and guides to facilitate creativity.
Since launching in January 2001, the flagship newsletter, Jake Ludington's Digital Lifestyle has delivered, tips, tutorials, how-to help, reviews of equipment and software and answers to consumer media questions. MediaBlab Premium takes this to the next level, offering subscribers more access to the information they need. By offering a full text subscription in either RSS, PDF or email formats, the reader is in control of how and where they get the help they need to create music, edit video and share their creations with the people who matter to their lives.
