Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
Pink TV, the upcoming gay TV channel that already had a display at the 2002 Gay Pride, should start emitting after summer 2003. And, for once, the stupidity of the people in charge of French airwaves could happen to be useful. (To someone. Namely, to me. Well, I’m a lot ahead of myself there, but I’m allowed to dream, that’s what I do best.) The administration allowed the channel to broadcast porn in exhange for devoting a ridiculously high share of their budget to French audiovisual production. (A higher share than for movie channels. Ain’t that nice logic? I guess they expect Pink TV to go bankrupt because of those requirements…) Do you see where I’m going now? No, it’s not about criticizing the CSA (Conseil Supérieur de l’Audiovisuel) for their bargaining ways, it would be of very little interest to you. The point is that French audiovisual production is me! Well, not me alone, but I’m a part of it, I mean, I will be, soon, maybe, sometime, if everything goes well and I’m lucky. As a soon-to-be director of DV movies for TV (because it’s simpler, you don’t need a whole production crew, you can produce yourself and do whatever you want), I didn’t have many outlets for my works—only that one French-German intelligent channel that nobody watches, Arte. Now there’s a whole new perspective for my career, I can direct gay TV-movies. Or even a series of TV-movies with recurring characters, I only need to think about the concept in the meantime. I can be content with a subscription cable channel’s audience, I don’t need millions of viewers, and anyway my movies will be so great they’ll become legendary and be released on DVD. My career plans just broadened all of a sudden. Now I’m really gonna have to get to the writing of my short movie’s script. And then the gay TV-movies for a ghetto channel. And then, I’m the new Spielberg. It will all come in due time.
