concerning german tv, GIGA, and other lamers!

i really don't see the need of advertising the demoscene in the public. things like that report about bp on 3sat are ok, though. but why does the scene have to get known in the public? maybe it (still) doesn't hurt, but there's no benefit either.

hooray for groupies! demomaking is the "playing-in-a-rockband" of today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
giga.tv doesnt have the right target audience to attract them - i am very pro more demoscene features in womens magazines.

The demoscene went public the very same moment when demosceners started to use the internet.

The demoscene went public even long before that. There used to be demo reviews in mainstream magazines for computers like Amiga & MSX all the time back in the 80's & early 90's. Almost every person I speak to who had a home computer back then knows what demos are, it's mostly the "newskool" computer users who haven't got a clue about what demos are.

how did you learn about the demoscene yourself?

I remember Second Reality being reviewed in a rather big UK mag and being rated favorably over Crustal Dream 2. I mean, somebody was reviewing that?!

PC Gamer defenitely had a full piece on ASM95 (and they liked nation 0 almost as much as me).

it's mostly the "newskool" computer users who haven't got a clue about what demos are.

...and the ratio between people in the know and the newskoolers is only 0.1% - 99.9% :|

The moment they started greeting people that weren't imaginary friends, the scene went public.

I'm sure even you know what I mean (hello ps) ;)

ps is not a myth. I've seen him. Kevin Costner. Waterworld. I don't know what the big fuss is about. I saw that movie nine times. It rules!

Back To The Topic III:
It was the worst episode of demoscene at giga.tv I've ever seen. I want more arte-like stuff. The interview of clary/drifters at The Summer Party 1996 was pretty interesting.
Hello all
I first would like to send a hello to friends XXX and Scamp as good remembrance from BP05-:) News for you guys ; have a look on DTV’s VoD ,

Scene Awards 2004 and Breakpoint 05 party report are available. Soon also available on Scene.org and Pouet of course.

I wish to bring Demoscene TV into this discussion now since this topic comes right into DTV's pot ; eg our mission to promote and share demoscene work to a broader audience (re: good discussion with xxx around it).
Since beginning our core value is to have Demosceners driving our programs and content development and it will remain our first priority.
However thanks to you guys the success is real and here and opportunities arise to take it to the next level, digital tv or further if we handle it carefully.

Upon previous comments, how do you see, expect, and would suggest the Demoscene opens itself to TV in the large sense of the term ?

Let us know your builds...we highly appreciate
Take Care

there are other shows, too, showing demoscene stuff in tv (e.g. cinetrip, here in hungary), but the phenomenon still remains, people don't know shit about the scene. like last time they "showed a demo" called "TPOLM"! O_o
Luckily the gamers don't give a shit about all this, so while the guy told the viewers to go to Evoke several times, this probably won't happen anyway.

tru.dat - if there's no radar and frag limit, then they just don't get interested, i think. but again, i see no problem in introducing the scene to people. it's just the audience that counts.
tell me if i'm wrong.

metapat: respect for your work with demoscene.tv! it really brings the scene to people who care. example: here in kraków i met a VJ who's watching dtv all the time and using it as inspiration for his vj sets. just one example of many.

DTV-guys: I don't know where you were, but that was the wrong Bingen at the beginning. ;)
Maden Mann: you mean we spelt it wrong?
strange we had close checks on this one...important piece of info !
anyway sorry if it is wrong!
let me know the right one we correct it

Well, you show 72551 Bingen in the south of Germany, but the party was in 55411 Bingen / Rhine, which is a bit more northern. Just check map24.com and you'll see what I mean.
message recieved ;)
