I recently scored a documentary for filmmaker Tim Prevett all about the emerging media phenomenon of Slow TV. I wasn’t aware of this movement until I spoke with Tim about this project of his a few months back so it was a real eye opener for me.
Just imagine a TV programme that happens in real time, maybe it’s a 4 hour train journey as we watch the passing scenery or it could be a boat cruise that lasts several days and we able to watch it in its entirety through our TV.
It might sound a little crazy but that’s exactly what the whole Slow TV movement is all about; experiencing something in real time. It’s a complete departure from all the other frenetic TV shows, but don’t knock it until you try it. I’ve found it’s a great way to wind down and chill out.
Tim’s wonderful documentary explains Slow TV much better than I can and it’s being screened this coming week at Slow Media Symposium, Bath Spa University on Thursday 26th March – if you’re in the area, go along and experience it.
Also, make sure to check out Tim’s blog and take a look at the video below…hopefully you’ll enjoy Slow TV as much as I do.
