Dollywood now offering Podcasts

Friday, April 21, 2006 1:08 PM
Hey folks -

Dollywood is starting a podcast feature on its website discussing all aspects of the park. The first one on Timber Tower will be up today or tomorrow and will become a fairly regular feature on the site.

We have also archived a media only webcast with Dolly from Grand Opening a few weeks ago that features footage of the Timber Tower in action and of some of the Festival of Nations acts.

I thought you might be interested.

Maybe someone can post the link so people can actually find the podcast. I couldn't find it.

I had to do a search for it too and it cuts off mid-sentence.

Technical difficulty. The webcast archive is up at: it is on the page about midway down.

Woo Hoo! Dolly said they're working on 9 to 5: The Broadway Musical!!!! Shooting for Fall '07.

Not bad for a first effort. The editing is choppy, could definitely be improved upon for the future. No mention of the new ride for '07.

The podcast totally covers the new ride. It should be up tomorrow. For some reason the encoding cut the piece in half. It is being re-encoded and will be posted when that is complete.

Thanks for the interest and the feedback.

What do you think of the video of the new ride and the Australian sway poles?

Well, since you asked Pete,

I like the point of view footage, but it could be a touch longer - extend the first one, loose the 2nd pov. What I think is missing are close ups of the ride when it's about to dip into the saw. I think I can hear the saw, but watching the video I am left unsure (try another angle). And you could add some close ups of the (animated?) beavers - adding a little bit more of the environment that you guys worked so hard on would make the video better. A close up of water hitting riders and their reactions would be great. Add some more wide shots of ride/environment. As it is, you only see the ride vehicle when it's up in the air. If you're cutting for time, you could loose the last shot of the ride going back to vertical. It's a long shot and doesn't show anything.

The video of the pole dancers has some weird audio underneath it that probably shouldn't be there. Maybe put a piece of music underneath the whole dancing segment so it doesn't sound so choppy. Easy fix.

Just some constructive criticisms coming from a tv producer. : )
