Check out this interview between our members Ivy N. Josiah and Fahmi Fadzil on The Fairly Current Show: http://popteevee.popfolio.net/default.aspx?e=1057
Ivy, a former Royal Commissioner on the police, comments on the recent Aminulrasyid death and other fatal shootings by the police. She also contextualises the case against the Commission's chief recommendation of setting up an Independent Police Commission.
Our primary objective is to engage with young Malaysians to help create a far more democratic media space. Rather than being reduced to mere consumers, we'd like to see young Malaysians create their own media experience. We do this by collaborating with creative producers to develop individual shows. PopTeeVee provides the resources to create and distribute this programming. This separation between platform and creativity will hopefully help create a more engaging media experience.
PopTeeVee is the network carrying individual channels such as The Fairly Current Show and The Weekend Sessions. The plan is to set up 5 channels, with one channel updated every day of the week. This proves to be a pretty efficient model. Every channel is developed with an independent creative team. Each team need only work to have one new episode per week, but the viewer will get to watch new content every day. The 3 remaining channels will be developed in stages over the rest of the year.
