Multimedia From Spook Central's Live Video Event

 By Paul Rudoff on Jan. 30, 2009 at 10:56 PM , Categories: Spook Central, Ghostbusters 1
Last night I held a special 20th anniversary live online video broadcast of Ghostbusters, as originally broadcast on ABC on January 29, 1989. The video was streamed live from my VCR, with chat services provided by AJ Quick via his Ghostbusters Fans chat room. I was very happy with the turnout - we topped out at 77 viewers, with the chat room receiving 114 people at different times throughout the two hours (I personally saw 69 people about halfway through) - though being my first live online video broadcast, the first hour did not go as smoothly as I would have liked. I've learned from the experience, so if I ever decide to do it again - June would be a good time don'cha think? - it should go MUCH better next time.

Immediately below you will find some screen captures I did of the event. The thumbnails link to 1024x768 PNG images. AJ has given me the chat log from the event, so you can read the LONG two-hour transcript on page 2. As you read it, you'll understand why we, as a group, should NEVER get together and do a live audio commentary for the movie.

Some people, especially those who couldn't attend last night's broadcast, wanted to know if the video would be available for later viewing. I'm a little hesitant to put up the entire video for on demand viewing as I don't want to anger Sony, but I'll take a chance and see what happens. I'll eventually put the new ABC promo and alternate footage on the site.
