WORLDWIDE JAM ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE HAVE BEEN APPOINTED THE 'OFFICIAL' SUPPLIER OF PARKOUR AND FREERUNNING CONTENT FOR VIRGIN MEDIA.

We have all become very used to watching Parkour videos on platforms like YouTube. Small screens, pixelated images, waiting for files to download.

Well things are just about to dramatically improve!

Virgin have recently launched Virgin Media.

"We're the first people in the UK to offer TV, Broadband, Phone and Mobile - all from one place. The future is bursting with fresh entertainment and communication possibilities".

Part of the Virgin Media package is Virgin Media Video, a free service that allows you to sample and appreciate the quality of broadband TV on your computer or through your TV via a set-top box.

This is where Worldwide JAM steps in. We've been invited by Virgin Media to find Parkour content from filmmakers around the world.

Our first offering is from award winning producer Stephen Follows. Its from his new DVD 'Parkour Journeys' and features Daniel Ilabaca in profile.

If you are a filmmaker and have good quality Parkour content that you would like to share with the world on Virgin Media, scroll down.

'DISPERSION'

The Broadcast quality of Virgin Media Video is about to change the way you can watch Parkour and FreeRunning. Once you have road tested the system, we would like to know your thoughts.

TO FILMMAKERS

If you are a Parkour or FreeRun filmmaker, we want to hear from you. We have a unique two-way-street opportunity that enables filmmakers to promote themselves and get their work broadcast on one of the worlds biggest media platforms.

For those of you who are concerned about capitalising on Parkour, let's get the money side of things out of the way first. Worldwide JAM do not profit from content broadcast on Virgin Media. Virgin Media Video is a free service, testing the market to see if there is an audience.

Of course Virgin Media are providing this opportunity so they can sign people up to their services, if there's an audience there's potential customers. What Virgin Media are offering us all however is equally as valuable.

The opportunity of watching Parkour content with unparalleled broadcast quality. If you want to stick with YouTube, that's fine, all we're doing is creating an alternative.



Our objective is to promote Parkour, the filmmakers and Worldwide JAM. With the help of leading participants of Parkour we'll be able to use the platform to educate the masses about what Parkour is, what it isn't, what's the difference between Parkour and FreeRunning, the origins and history.

Use it or lose it!
Like Worldwide JAM, it's only going to work if the Parkour community gets behind the project. All we have done is kick open the door of new potential.

Our plan for the future is to include as many talented filmmakers as possible from around the world and let as many people share in this experience.

If you are interested in getting involved, send us an email at films@worldwidejam.tv
 

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

In the early stages of this project, we need uncompressed completed films, with titles and credits.

Films can be of any duration but they have to be good quality.

Music
There is NO problem using licenced muisc in your film. Whatever tracks you choose, Virgin Media has all the agreements in place with record companies and artists.

Grant of Licence
All filmmakers will enter into a contract with Worldwide JAM which outlines the terms of use and protects all parties. A sample of this contract is available upon request.

DRM (Data Rights Management)
Virgin Media's video player is installed with a bullet proof DRM which is encoded into your content. Apart from allowing Virgin Media to track how many people are watching your film, it also restricts content from being illegally downloaded.

Audience figures will be provided to all contributing filmmakers.

Credits
All filmmakers will be credited during the broadcast of their content. You design the opening titles and end credits yourself.

Acceptable Formats
We can accept films on just about any format. DVD, CD, DV Tape, Video.....etc. Remember that if you are using music that is not rights free, that we need an uncompressed version which includes image and audio files.

Test Screening
If you have content you would like to have broadcast on Virgin Media, upload a version to YouTube (or similar) and send us the link.
