In the interest of serving the Zcash community and economy in the best way that I can, an idea has struck which I can no longer ignore and in which I hope to find passionate individuals who will join me. To state it directly, my goal is to establish a network of capable, ready and funded media producers broadcasting and sharing fresh news about Zcash and online privacy. So, without further ado, here is my official announcement of the Zcash Foundation Audio/Visual Club. Please check the ZF blog post for the details and how to participate. I will be the main point of contact initially and all feedback is welcome and appreciated.
The ZF A/V Club meetups will be online at 18:00 UTC on the last Thursday of every month.
Our first meetup will be on January 26 when we’ll be talking about Zcash Audio/Visual Media: Past, Present and Future!
A least initially, the club meetup unschedule will live on Free2Z. It will change frequently and we’ll open a collaborative board of some kind soon to manage the meetup schedule in an open and flexible way. At the end of each meetup we’ll take suggestions for future topics and adapt as needed. https://free2z.cash/ZFAVClub/zpage/zf-av-club-unschedule-2023
Come one! Come all! Today is the day! The first official ZF A/V Club meetup starts at 18h UTC
Join the discussion on Discord or watch and chat along on Free2Z Live
Tell your friends! Bring your friends!
Let’s make some art!
The ZF A/V Club YouTube channel was deleted by YouTube. The YT team tweeted that they will look at the case. More info when I have it.
I’d like to see a grant for a community DevOps team that could help setup and run a Zeal PeerTube instance. This idea comes from @ZealWizard and inspired by their work on Zeal.Center which could be super helpful with other such things, like Matrix.
Started a new project today in which I am creating short clips from every Zcon presentation and linking back to the original video on YouTube where I’ve already begun adding chapters and refreshing the descriptions.
The second ZF A/V Club meetup will be on the last Thursday of the month (23 February 2023) at 18h UTC.
During this meetup, we will be discussing funding options for audio/visual projects in the Zcash economy and exploring various funding opportunities that can support the creation of more Zcash A/V projects.
Whether you’re a seasoned audio/visual pro or just starting out, this meetup is a great opportunity to network with like-minded creators and learn about the latest funding options available in Zcash. Members of the community will share their insights and experiences with securing funding for audio/visual projects in the Zcash ecosystem.
Here’s a reminder that the next ZF A/V Club meetup is on Thursday at 18h UTC. Join us on Discord or Free2Z Live.
This will be recorded and published later.
Also, @decentralistdan and I would like to open a weekly hangout to everyone who is interested.
This new thing will happen on Discord in the ZF A/V Lounge on Wednesdays at 18h UTC, starting tomorrow when we’ll be testing the a/v livestream/recording tech for Thursday’s meetup.
These may be recorded, if we’re testing something, but will not be published later.
The third monthly ZFAV meetup is tomorrow, Thursday 2023-03-30 at 18h UTC
Zcon Vozes was the club’s first in-person livestream event since we launched. At this meetup we’ll go into the hardware and software details of how the livestream was produced, what went well and some of the troubles we ran into.
We are also working on optimized localization processes for livestreams and on-demand videos that can be used for future Zcash events and A/V media.
Join us on Discord or Free2Z Live to hear all about livestreaming and how we’re working to include our global community in everything Zcash!
Officially announcing: Weekly ZF A/V Club Workshops! Every Tuesday at 17h UTC we meet in Discord to get hands-on with some kind of a/v tech hardware and software. Learning how to do what we do better, together! JOIN US!!
