THE CASE FOR CABLE ACCESS
Acid Rain Production is an exhibition venue that occupies a physical space, much like a brick
and mortar gallery. Our space though, rather than being in just one location in a community, is
the broadcast range of the cable access television stations that air the program. In this way, we
are automatically streaming into the homes, and businesses of people who subscribe to cable
TV in those particular regions. Our audience is made up of artists and people interested in
seeing experimental video as well as viewers who accidentally stumble across the show. Like
a physical gallery, we present one exhibition per month. Unlike a physical gallery space, the
cost of sustaining Acid Rain is extremely low, involving only public access membership fee’s
(in some cases not even this), blank DVD’s, and the cost of shipping DVD’s to TV stations.
Currently, some cable access stations are switching to a digital upload format that will eliminate
the need for DVD’s and shipping. With little to no overhead, we are able to expand into other
broadcast areas where local citizens, who are interested in seeing our content become
available to their community, may become sponsors of the show.
Individuals interested in becoming community sponsors of Acid Rain in their region should
a letter of interest, and a brief bio, to email@example.com.
They are, starting with the September 2011 episode, at vimeo.com/acidraintv.
For now though, until I get some serious time on my hands, back episodes will not be uploaded.
