UNESCO Podcasts: We'll Pay 12 Times Blair Witch Project
The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is looking to dole out some moolah for video podcasts.

"The organization wishes to produce and distribute a series of video podcasts for all audiences, but especially young adults (20-35), aimed at increasing understanding of the development and societal issues identified as priority fields by UNESCO."

Some of the hot topics they're looking for are:
  • Human Rights
  • Tolerance
  • Freedom of Expression
  • and more
Interestingly, UNESCO is targetting the 20-35 age range. That could either mean that they're unaware that 20-35 isn't the mean age of podcast listeners, or it could mean that they're targetting 20-35 year olds despite that statistic. Shrug...one can never be sure with large organizations.

Podcasts should be less than 3 minutes and you can actually get a grant up to $3,000 to produce it. $3K for a 3-minute show is an awful lot of money. I submit that UNESCO isn't looking for podcasts at all. Rather, they're looking for short films.

As a small note of how out to lunch $3K for 3 minutes of video is, the Blair Witch Project cost $22K to make and was 86 minutes long. That's only $256 per minute. $1K per minute to make a video podcast should go a long way.
