My good friend Chuck Cirino has just leaped into the world of video blogging with the re-launch of Weird America, “A Journey into America’s Crawlspace”, where he posts videos that he’s shot of strange events and interviews with interesting people around the country.
Chuck’s no stranger to film and video, working as an independent producer/director for the last 30 years. His groundbreaking show Weird TV was on Fox Television back in the mid-90’s and most recently it was was featured on MSN Video. Some of the content for the new Weird America will come from the massive Weird TV archives. Chuck also created two really great videos about Burning Man (1994 & 1997) and for several years at the event he did Talk Show Camp Show, a talk show he hosted on a mobile living room that drive around the Playa, where each episode was shot, edited and screened all in one day.
To get a better idea of what Weird America is all about, check out Chuck’s introductory post “Television on the Internet” as well as some other gems he’s posted such as “Ask Dr. Hal at the Odeon” and “Hotel Search”. This is just the beginning. Chuck’s video archives are overflowing with great content, not to mention all the new stuff he’s working on. He’s also a talented music composer, most recently having done sound score work for the Sci-Fi Network and various independent films.
Stay tuned to Weird America, it’s just going to get better and weirder.
