Since NOTV’s start in 2000 we produce original content: film, TV, DVD and audiovisual events. One of our specialisations is adding the visual dimension to music and vice versa. We do this by developing innovative formats and helping artists to expand their multimedia vocabulary and tools, utilising modern technologies and in line with present audience demands. Hereby we fulfil todays opportunities for audiovisually equipped (film & music) festivals, venues, theatres, concert halls, musea and homes. Also TV can no longer do without crossmedia interactivity.
NOTV works with pioneering artists and talents in these new multidisciplinary productions, providing the complementary dimensions and technologies. This way we create new opportunities and markets within the music, film and TV industry.
HOW DO WE DO THIS?
Todays media use in art and entertainment has drastically changed. Artists now express themselves through a plethora of exciting new tools previously unthinkable. Their audience is reached through classic channels, in live settings and today through a myriad of online devices. Modern times therefore demand a new tactical approach by artists, festivals, theatre programmers, TV, film and music industry. The challenge is to obey to emerging modern media rules and user expectations. If taken seriously this provides a new and enormous potential for innovative (re-)packaging of entertaining arts content, serving the audience the pluriform sensitive experiences they expect – live and on the wide range of devices they prefer.

LIVE VJ PERFORMANCES
From 2005 NOTV produced the Peter Greenaway Tulse Luper VJ Performance world tour and Anton Corbijn’s first live VJ performance. Both delivered mind-blowing experiences – it had not been done before and they rocked the crowd, opening the eyes of many fellow artists.
Anton Corbijn VJ performance – Club 11 Amsterdam – produced by NOTV
Peter Greenaway “Tulse Luper VJ Performance” – produced by NOTV
On music by DJ Serge Dodwell (aka Radar), ‘VJ’ Greenaway used for his set a unique VJ system consisting of a specially developed large plasma screen with touchscreen. Utilizing this system, Greenaway projected the 92 Tulse Luper stories on the 12 screens of Club 11 in a multi-screen way and mixed the images ‘live’.
The result was amazing: Greenaway rocked the crowd in Amsterdam’s VJ temple “11”, blending his avantgarde cinematographic imagery (taken from the Tulse Luper Suitcases movie) with the heavy movie score remix by DJ Radar. Mastering the giant touch screen the newborn ‘realtime image conductor’ Greenaway provided a totally new experience to the audience: Live Cinema was born.
The innovative VJ debut of Peter Greenaway did not go unnoticed. As “real time image conductor” he finally freed himself from classic cinematographic linearity. With his outstanding cinematographic eye and energetic approach Greenaway won the respect of fellow VJs worldwide and hereby set the pace in the toplevel international VJ scene.
The tremendous succes of this performance made NOTV and Peter Greenaway decide to take the performance to a next level, and bring it to the international audience by starting the official “NOTV Peter Greenaway Tulse Luper VJ World Tour”. We brought Peter Greenaway’s unique VJ performance to 35 cities all over the world, including Amsterdam, Barcelona, Sevilla, London, Paris, Milan, Rome, Moscow, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Brisbane.
Many projects followed, always with an exciting interaction between visuals and music, including:
– Jacob ter Veldhuis (a.k.a. JacobTV)
– ‘BARCODE’ live techno/VJ performance at International Film Festival Rotterdam (Secret Cinema, Finister)
– ‘Flamenco Vivo’ music and dance performance (Nuria Manglano, Concertgebouw)
– ‘En Las Sombras’ crossmedia tango performance (Christiane Palha, Gustavo Beytelmann)
