    Hi't! scoops and rumors Australian Reality TV

    1. Hi't will have 10 hosts and the public will get to vote each one off. The one left with will host the second series.

    2. Hi't! has approached the Corrective Services Department about using a 13th Intern; on probation. (The Inmate will be scheduled to be released and will not be in for violent crimes or making snuff films).

    3. HI'T will be screened as a serial on Street Vision in Sydney and Melbourne. The pilot will be played in 45 second segments in October.

    4. Every application received will be played on Street Vision in November.

    5. In December, highlights from the national interviews will screen. This coincides with Melbourne's screens coming on line. It is anticipated some 3 million people in Sydney and Melbourne will see HIT each week in series - not including the broadcaster's audience and broadband content.

    6. Hi't! will be parking a billboard which says TV IS BORING in front of TV executives houses on Saturday morning while the driver asks for cups of sugar.

    7. The applications, interviews and judges comments will be used to make up episodes 1-5 with Judges 'positive' comments overlaid.

    8. 4 Interns will be selected from NSW; 3 from Victoria and 1 from every other State and Territory.

    9. There will be two production houses; one in Sydney, at Judge Lane, the other in South Melbourne. 6 Interns will live in apartment buildings in each city and will be required to go to 'work' each day.

    10. All production meetings in series will be held online, however, they will only be open to people who have registered.

    11. The database being built will be Australia's no 1 source of freelance creative; a new business model is being developed for musicians and it is proposed allowing them to use the site to promote and distribute their music on.

    12. There is a strong chance the first OS licensee will be New Zealand although the Kiwis didn't take Clements' comment about using their pilots as goof reels in the Aussie series very well.

    You heard it first from Greg "Media Man" Tingle

    I read that whole thing, and I don't understand a word of it. Time for a new marketing department.

    Wanted - Talent to be a big hit in Reality TV

    Multi award-winning producers Brett Clements and Peter Dodds are now scouting for local talent to participate in a new reality TV series called H‘it’! which will see 12 of Australia’s most talented, young creatives shack up in a Sydney production ‘house’ for six weeks. The housemates can come and go as they wish. H’it’ TV is looking for actors, artists, designers, directors, musicians and other creatives to make their own TV programs to market to the world. In what is set to be a 16-part, one-hour series, the creatives, aged 18-30, with mayby the odd "oldie", will pitch their visions for shows to the actual viewing audience and Australia will vote for which concepts they’d like to see turned into television, via SMS, of course.

    Brett Clements said, "The general public doesn’t get much of a say when it comes to what formats are turned into pilots so we thought we’d give the country a chance to influence what’s on TV”.

    The Reality TV visionary was the think tank behind one of the world’s first reality-based TV commercial campaigns, New Zealand’s "Real Slice of Heaven", and also created international TV series such as "Just For The Record", the new Wonder World (on Nine) and "The Aquanauts", in addition he created the international best selling Video Board Game, Nightmare.

    Clements has teamed with Logie-award-winning documentary maker Peter Dodds, who also authored a major Australian report into the future direction of television and multimedia, and the writer of the "Big Brother Uncut. Unreel. Unseen" DVD.. Also joining the team is director Rodney Morris. Dodds and Morris are two of Australia’s foremost interactive producers, with numerous credits and awards across the television and multimedia industries.

    To enter applicants must produce a 60-second advert on yourself and explain why you think you’ve got what H‘it’! takes to make the big-time. The adverts will be evaluated by a judging panel of industry icons including Philip Noyce, Glenn Wheatley, Jack Singleton and one or two others that Media Man Australia know very well indeed!

    The H’it’! production team also includes studio-owner and entertainment entrepreneur, Malinda Rutter, who recently launched her Polkadotts talent agency into the United States, top Sydney marketing director, Kate Neale and the Post Production team from Farscape, Claudia Boland and Barba Cooper.

    So, it's like Project Greenlight, but for Australian television?

    I haven't heard of Project Greenlight. Just looked it up. Hi't! is about producing TV programs, rather that working from scripts. Brett Clements says they are totally original, and he is a man of integrity. Hi't! is about talented creatives making TV programs.
