The video blogging Chief Minister

Chief MInister Gallagher’s blogging flirtation has taken a strange new turn as she shows herself off in slick videos locked down on Vimeo, the video buff’s preferred platform over YouTube (particularly when they don’t want something going viral).

Someone’s paid quite a bit of money to make things very few people are going to see, and then worded up their friends at the ABC.

G’day John,

Thanks for posting the video of the interview (video blog) with Chief Minister Katy Gallagher. It’s been a popular link on her blog today at http://www.katygallagher.net and we hope more people will take the time to tune in and listen to it to get to know her a little bit better.

I think you’ll agree that there are fewer and fewer oportunities to get to know public representatives through mainstream media and hopefully the more that people get to know Katy and Zed the better infromed they will be when they make a choice later this year about which team to vote for.

You mentioned that the video was “locked down”. I don’t think it is locked down at all, anyone can post and share it. It’s even been re-posted on the sydney morning herald website this morning and has been linked to by various people on Twitter and Facebook. It seems to play freely on all those sites.

Also, I have to say something about your incorrect reporting that it cost “quite a bit of money”. We had a few interruptions (technical, background noise and people making deliveries and driving past the location a couple of times) but it was filmed in less than half an hour with only one camera operator and volunteers writing and asking the questions. The editing was very straight forward as well and I estimate it was done in less than two hours including production. I estimate the whole thing cost less than $500.00, not including Katy’s time.

Regards, Elias
Chief Complaints Officer, ALP (ACT Branch)
