I’ll be producing more on the Portland Milwaukie Light Rail in the coming months, breaking out information about the new bike routes, light rail, pedestrian paths and all the improvements around the project. One of these days I’ll do a price break out so all the light rail haters can realize that a large bulk of the costs are actually for rebuilding the roadways in and around the light rail line. But until then, enjoy and happy travels!
I’m making a few changes to the upcoming Transit Sleuth TV Episodes (check out here for the current episodes).
1. Single Segments…
The episodes are going to simply be divided into their individual segments. Instead of one episode being 3 segments, or however many I’ve decided on in the past, I’ll be producing one segment per episode. These segments will still be 2 minutes to 10 minutes, with the average being somewhere around 3-5 minutes usually.
2. Released As Produced…
As each segment is produced I’ll release it, so no more 3 week waits between episodes. It might be a little bumpy at first, but there will likely be a new segment released every Sunday. There might be an extra one here or there, so be sure to subscribe to the Transit Sleuth TV Channel or just follow the Transit Sleuth blog right here (look in the upper right hand side of the blog for the follow button, then you’ll get an email delivered with every new blog entry and segment when it is released).
3. Transit Sleuth Crew…
The Transit Sleuth Crew has formed to produce larger scale productions. No, we’re still not going to produce any movie quality episodes (yet, unless you know some studios or something that are interested). But myself and several other individuals are aiming to produce some “what if” segments that are hopefully going to rock your socks! …oh, and be super entertaining too. 🙂
So, subscribe on the vimeo channel here and stay tuned for more of Portland’s very own Transit Sleuth TV.
Cheers, The Sleuth
Al M @alyourpalster at his blog “Introducing Transit Sleuth TV“, Dogcaught “Transit Sleuth TV” care of @steveeshom and Portland Transport’s “Open Thread for the Week of 9/15/13“, thanks @ChrisSmithUS. Also I want to give a big shout out and thanks to Paul Peterson of @EmpteFilms for helping me conjure up the idea to start Transit Sleuth TV. Thanks and cheers Paul, we’ll have to have a beer again soon and plot out a new episode!
In other coverage here’s a few of the tweets. Thanks to everybody for getting the word out on the first episode!
Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail opened a number of years ago. Paul and a crew of friends, transit advocates all, joined forces for a tour of the light rail opening. This was, as you can see if you watch the video, the precursor of Transit Sleuth TV. Thanks to Paul for filming and lighting the fire of the idea to start a project around this. Finally, I’ve got myself in gear and put the first episode together here: “Transit Meet & How to Carry Wine and Gelato“. In the near future Paul and I will probably team up to bring you some more Transit Sleuth TV. Stay tuned, for now here’s the original, from the opening of the Link Light Rail in Seattle.
Hello transit riders, cyclists and other Cascadians! In an effort to spruce up the Transit Sleuth Logo (or lack thereof really) I’m looking for some help. I have some ideas myself, but I’d really like to brainstorm with some others about a Transit Sleuth Logo that could be used for Transit Sleuth TV and for the blog. Do you know anyone that could help? Do you have ideas yourself? Are you interested in brainstorming the idea?
Ping me on Facebook or via Twitter @transitsleuth and we’ll work on making something pop for Transit Sleuth! Cheers!
