Good place to get unicycling on TV.

    I just signed up for the "Fuel" cable network, an all "action sports"
    cable channel. There is a show on Fuel titled "Project Detention" that
    shows non-professionally-produced sports videos. Fuel and Project
    Detention are both well produced. The websites are
    http://www.projectdetention.com and http://www.fuel.tv.
    The only additional info I know is that Project Detention focuses on
    videos produced by younger (high school-age and younger) filmmakers and
    editors. Fuel may be open to airing professionally-produced unicycling
    videos. Make sure you *really* read the video and music clearance
    documents before sending in your submissions.

    This seems like a great way to promote unicycling to a much larger
    audience.

  3. A friend of mine who gets 'Fuel' here in Australia said he's seen
    unicycing on there twice already! He's going to tape it the next time
    he sees it. Apparently some of the mountain biking guys who are on the
    show regularly are also mountain and trials unicyclists. I've never
    seen the show/channel but it sounds interesting.

    It would really be great to see some of our younger unicyclists on the
    "Project Detention" show. Maybe you all could send in some of the videos
    you have posted on Unicyclist.com.

    My brother and I will be entering high school next year and we are
    planning to make a video of our best riding. Do you think a video
    imported into the computer by a firewire port and put back onto a tape
    would be high enough quality?

    You can see our other movies in the gallery. Our album is called
    "Uni412's Trials and Street Album".

    Uni 412,
    Yes, "video through firewire and back to tape" would be ok, just don't
    compress the video too much when you load it to your hard drive. The
    more video compression you use, the worse your video will look. Check
    your hardware and editing software. Some editing software allows you do
    make all of your edit decisions in a low video quality (but hard drive
    space-saving) rough cut and then do a high video quality conform based
    on your edit list. If your hard drive is large enough you may just be
    able to load the video to your hard drive in high video quality, edit
    this footage, and output that video straight to tape. Your storage needs
    will depend on how much raw footage you want to work with and how long
    you expect the finished piece to be. Try some very simple edit jobs and
    see the output quality for yourself.
