Introducing "dekePod"--Fresh, Fast, Hip Video Podcasting: Scan & Open Money in Photoshop
Sebastopol, CA--Digital imaging guru Deke McClelland, today introduced the pilot for his new show dekePod--a video podcast with a hip, visually compelling style. "dekePod" is personal and entertaining with rapid-fire imagery that keeps the viewer engaged. The pilot episode "It's Your Money, Scan It!" shows viewers a workaround in Photoshop to scan and open money (legal in the U.S. under the specific guidelines detailed at www.rulesforuse.org). Deke is the host of this educational, zippy, sometimes laugh-out-loud show.
Sponsored by Deke Press in association with O'Reilly Media and iStockphoto, "dekePod" is produced by San Francisco-based Flying Moose Pictures. Using music, tight framing, and an ironic interplay of live action and images, it packs a punch in a mere 5 minutes. The pilot features images from iStockphoto.
"I give high marks to the team at Flying Moose," states Deke McClelland, author of the best-selling "One-on-One" books. "'dekePod' is fast-paced, laser-beam intense, and entertaining as hell. It's a hyperkinetic production that demands attention and rewards you with that special buzz only knowledge can bring."
"Podcasting is an opportunity to deliver an experience that gets up close and personal," comments Jonathan Luskin, co-founder, Flying Moose Pictures. "With 'DekePod,' we met the challenge--creating a visually stimulating environment designed to entertain, educate, and compel the viewer to hit the play button again and again."
