    What’s up? This is Littlebrick, and I’m running for Minister of Broadcasting.

    -Why do I want to?-
    Well, I miss the Brickfilms Podcast, and I’m sure everyone else does too. It was a great way to introduce more people to the hobby that is Brickfilming, and it was also useful for those people with iPods in between classes. Or during. Whatever.

    I want to bring it back. And I will. Having been on this site for nearly three years now, I have seen many great films, so I know what to look for.

    -What will I do?
    I will choose the best Brickfilms as podcast episodes, and I will release them once every two weeks.

    I will choose several people to assist me with this responsibility, to make it an enjoyable experience. I have already spoken to LegosJedi, a whizz with PHP, and he said he would love to help run the site. I will also ask several other members to help choose films. Suggestions from viewers will also be considered.

    I have also decided to distribute the podcast in several different formats, or in a more universal format, such as MP4, so people with non-iPod MP3 players can enjoy the podcast as well.

    -Why should you vote for me?-
    I already co-host The Brickfilmer’s Guide, so I know what it takes to run a podcast. I have lots of free time to create episodes. I am also a well known member on this site, having been here for 3 years this May.

    -Final words-
    Well, I’m totally ready for this job. Now it’s time for you to throw your questions at me.

    I like your platform, I’m still unsure who to vote for though. Good luck, there’s a lot running for this position.

    Will you only be making the podcast with Apple products in mind?

    Are you sure you want to promise that? Though I assume you’ll compress the podcasts better than Pierre sometimes did, but the podcast saps a LOT of bandwidth.

    I’m sure the MoB will need to coordinate with the Management to ensure the podcast doesn’t drain too many resources. Assuming the episodes will be held on the brickfilms server, of course.

    Cometgreen, I will do my very best to make them a reasonable size, for am among the people who think that a 150 megabyte podcast is completely unacceptable.

    Brianfast, even though I am a huge supporter of Apple, if needed, I will make podcasts that will work on Zune, or any other MP3 players.

    About the podcast:

    I actually have no idea if the new management will indeed allow it, and the point is that a podcast indeed costs a little money. I donĀ“t want to dampen your enthusiasm, but I guess the first priority of this minister will be to revive the podcast or actually explore cheep opportunities…

    And I definitely wanna see the audio podcast again! Chosen1 and LOTL were really cool ;)

    cheers Arend
