SINGAPORE : Videocasts of the General Election, shot using 3G mobile phones, will be available on the Channel NewsAsia website everyday starting from Nomination Day.
These clips will be produced by bloggers representing both the pre- and post-independence generations.
"Whenever you see Workers' Party or PAP or SDP, the news is pretty objective. You have to state the views and you can't editorialise anything. But here (with videocasting), you can put a little bit of your own personal comments on the issues being argued," said logger and Channel NewsAsia's producer Au Yong May Lin.
"I'm trying to capture a different angle of the elections, something that is more colourful, something noisier and funnier," said blogger and Channel NewsAsia's art director Farid Johari.
What viewers will also be seeing is news as it happens on the ground, as the bloggers will be uploading their clips on the Channel NewsAsia website instantaneously.
