TV commercial - the dealio

I got a call back from Comcast Spotlight. Running ads on Comedy Central and Cartoon Network in the Portland market, between the hours of midnight and five, is just as inexpensive as I was lead to believe. Airing a commercial during a specific program or time slot would run an additional 20% though.

Here's where it gets tricky. The ad would have to be delivered on "Beta SAP" or via DV or mini DV. What do these things mean? DV = digital video tape....ok, I have no clue. My experience with video editing begins and ends with editing camcorder footage on VCRs.

It would also have to be approved by the staff. According to the person I spoke with, this isn't much to worry about provided the ad is submitted in the correct format, isn't too sloppy and doesn't contain anything too offensive. If Spartacus Leather and Fantasy Adult Video can get airtime, there's no reason why Welcome to Blog should run into problems.

To do this myself, I would have to track down a digital video camera and a copy of iMovie. The later wouldn't be difficult but I doubt there's a business anywhere in town that rents cameras and I'm not willing to invest several hundred dollars in a complete lark.

So, if those that wrote in were serious, drop me a line in the feedback area or via email at website1981@hotmail.com. Be forewarned though. The only thing I can pay you in exchange for your time and effort is funsize bags of Reese's Pieces.
