Re: Your Skoolie on TV?


In my limited experience, show business is very much a hierarchy -- you start out small and work your way up. This Treasue HD is probably a realistic "first step". I'll bring it up with them next week.

Re: Your Skoolie on TV?

How about someone gets Mike Rowe to come grind seat bolts on a 20 year old bus that was used to transport laborers in the iron mines of Minnesota?

Re: Your Skoolie on TV?

I do alot of Video work around Atlanta with many local bands. I also do photography. If we dont have a tv show who would like to cover us I can do a professional video show and post it on all the different video hosting sites. I have the equipment needed to do this. We would have millions of potential viewers. Many of the music videos I shoot get a few 100K views. So I think we could do our own show. I also have interviewed many rock stars and worked for the Classic Rock station for 6 years before they had a format change. I can do a great fun show.

I will also plan on the "Gathering of the Skoolies of 2008"

Re: Your Skoolie on TV?


We'll keep that in mind.

Say, Dizzy, I need to show films with a projector next weekend, and I want to have the projector behind the screen. I've seen people use a spandex type of material for the screen. I also see that I can buy such spandex screen on eBay. But I need it right away, and cheap. What do I look for in the local fabric stores, do you know?

Re: Your Skoolie on TV?

What if the show becomes a hit or a cult classic, then everyone will want a school bus. Supply and demand will come into play and we will no longer be able to buy a bus for cheap.

Re: Your Skoolie on TV?

Man I haven't dealt with real film in years I do digital so that question not one I can give an accurate answer too. I am more less the camera/production type. I wouldn't want to lead you wrong!

Dizzy: This is digital also -- films on DVD and a digital projector. But light is light. Don't worry, I'll find something to use for a screen. One guy uses white sheer window curtain material.

Re: Your Skoolie on TV?


It needs to be a material that lets the light thru from the back so it shows on the front. Like a TV screen.

i bought some spandex material from jo-ann fabric's for pretty cheap recently. They don't call it spandex, but "swimwear material" or something like that. I had to ask the sewing lady to help because i couldn't find it.

if you go that route i'll post a really cool method to attach it to a frame...requires only zip ties and marbles.
