2011 (Summary!) =>2012 HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!



HAPPY NEW YEAR

We wish everyone the best of
Health, Happiness,
Prosperity, Peace, Progress,
and Success in
2012!

*  *  *


Here is a summary/index of stories from 2011 in QPORIT.. And some glances forward into 2012.

SEE BELOW FOR OUR EXTENDED 2011 TOPICAL INDEX OF SELECTED STORIES!


Looking back, QPORIT continues to grow exponentially.  December 2011 has been a record breaking month with the biggest traffic ever, beating our previous record holder (last month, November) by about 30% and almost doubling the traffic from a year ago.

Looking forward, we have two particular objectives:

1 --- We hope to increase our coverage of theater, especially Broadway!  ... And Special companies like The Public Theater, EST, The Red Bull Theater, CSC, LAByrinth... etc! ... And cutting edge Indie OOB theater!

2 --- We also plan to extend our coverage of stereoscopic 3D, including more stories about the technology and theatrical and online content; and more 3D video production of our own, including interviews, webisodes, and music videos, all in stereoscopic 3D . 

"3D CASTING" IN 2012: Beginning in the Spring, we will be actively looking to develop several projects:

1 -  For film and theatrical projects you are involved in, we would like to interview you... or other principal cast or creative team members in 3D for QPORIT & BOBOOBLOG.

2 - We want to create a 3D music video with a brilliant new artist!

3 - We will be developing cutting-edge, edgy, pushing the envelope, 2D/3D webisodes, creating -- in addition to standard 2D content -- NEW 3D CONTENT FOR 3D HAND-HELD DEVICES & 3D TVs.

4 - We are looking to collaborate with an existing theatrical troupe to videotape in 3D their development of a short-short (4 min or less) dramatic piece with several characters, lots of physical action, nudity welcome but not required, and a strong story; Then, after documenting the development process we will film the resulting play in 3D.


We greatly appreciate all those who have participated in our projects, our stories, and our videos, and all those who have contacted us with information about potential stories.

Please let us know about 3D videos you'd like to participate in, or can help us to develop! (Contact QPORIT.webcast@gmail.com!)

And please Continue to send us Press Notices, (if we are on your list)! Or ADD US TO YOUR LIST for Screenings, Press Previews, Press Conferences Red Carpets, and other events if we are not already on your LIST!!!
