Have you been watching the new ABC television show I-Caught? I think the show is on Tuesday nights. I’m not sure because I recorded the show and didn’t watch it until last night.
I’ve watched two episodes of I-Caught so far and I really like the show. It seems to center around the crazy things people do, and how they broadcast there ideas on the internet, often through videos submitted to YouTube.
The shows About page states:
What is i-CAUGHT? Well – we all know there’s a video revolution swirling around us all – 24/7. Ask yourself… how many times were you caught on surveillance video today? Did you – like more than 100,000 other people – upload a video onto the internet? Did you go online like millions of others and watch a video?
We’re ALL a part of this new video revolution.
But it’s more than just entertainment. Every one of these videos has a story behind it. Who made it? What was going on behind the scenes? What came after it? And how much can we really believe what we see?
An awful lot of it is also news. The politician caught on an open mic. The policeman caught doing the heroic – or the opposite. The patrol on the streets of Baghdad. Or the moment when Mother Nature wreaks havoc on the ususpecting. We’re watching – literally – as every single person with a video camera can gather news for all the rest of us.
We call this new television and internet experience i-CAUGHT. Because that’s how so many people feel these days. Everywhere you look – cameras – catching everything: breaking news… making headlines… turning unknowns into celebrities… turning others into laughing stocks…
And for all the world to see – in an instant. It’s video at the speed of life.
Every week, i-CAUGHT brings you the real stories – reporting on the real people – behind the videos that millions of us watch and share everyday.
I didn’t see last weeks episode, but they apparently asked their views to submit via video three words that they feel are important to them. The words could have something to do with life in general or reflect how the person felt about their day or week. It didn’t matter as long as it was three words.
At the end of this weeks episode they showed a video they’d put together. It was composed of many of the submissions that people had provided over the last week. I’d put the video in this post, but I fear that it’s autoplay and I loath autoplay videos on websites.
Some of the submissions were humorous, others were inspiring and some were just sad. As I watched the video my eyes got a little misty. That’s how deeply some of those simple three word submissions touched me. If you’d like to watch the video just visit “Your 3 Words”. You might even be inspired to submit your own video.
Yes, they are still accepting submissions. When Chris and I heard that we decided that we’d each make a short three word video too. Who knows maybe our videos will become part of the I-Caught Your Three Words video montage.
