Way to make people aware about the demoscene...

category: general [glöplog]
I wanted to start this thread talking about ways to get people be aware about the demoscene...

In my city, every morning while taking the metro, I got some people which could give you a piece of paper to promote something. Most of the time, it's about their religion... but it could be about some other stuff...

I want to know... what you think about that idea?
Is anyone had ever try it?
What kind of things should be printed?
Or maybe.. you just got a better idea how to let's people know about the demoscene?

Maybe you got an original story of how you discover the demoscene?

Make more awesome demos. I guess that's one of the most reasonable solutions out there.

You mean: make a demo about it? :)

Pretty much, but I wanted to avoid that slogan :)

Also, people generally throw those flyers away pretty soon afterwards.
Of all the outreach ideas, this one might be the worst.

Play more demos and demoscene music at parties, organize parties that have djs (and maybe vjs) who play that stuff.
And im not talking about demoparties for a pretty limited audience but your usual friday/saturday night danceclub-party.

Religions use threat of eternal damnation in hell and it seems to have worked pretty well for the last 2000 years!

Listen to our demos, or the Dark Coders of the Underground will come at night eat you alive!

Let's have Barti handing them out. For good measure.

Instead of threatening, take the peaceful route and promise heaven:

1. beer volcano
2. stripper factory
3. ???
4. Profit!

How about to make a demoscene restaunrant?
Put big screen and speaker in a restaunrant so that guests can watch demos while drinking or eating food.

let's give commercial software for free to people and put some demos at loading to be sure they will watch it and be interested in.

OH WAIT...

We all know how dreadful young people of today are, they just use social media - ON TOUCH SCREEN DEVICES! So um, the way forward is to faceblag, tweet (and so on), I'm afraid... :)

Demoparty venues in the normalhead party part of town might work also actually.

Don't try to make people aware of the demoscene. Those who are openminded and interested in the matter will find out themselves. We have websites such as scene.org and pouet.net which are accessible by the public. Many demos are even available on YouTube. So, anybody who has Internet access and searches long enough will find the demoscene.

The narrow-minded, religious, superstitious, intolerant,... people who constitute the majority of the population need not discover the demoscene. They wouldn't understand it anyway.

@Adok: your comment was so stupid that I died. I was given a new chance on life to come post that your comment is fucking stupid.

Maybe Saga can advertise the scene in his mansion:

People went to my cinema and hairdresser, it didn't seem to help.
An idea about promoting the scene would be some Farbrausch prods appearing on Mediaset channels, owned by Berlusconi. Since this person is controversial, everything that happens about his activities gets a good media coverage :p
