Informing the Campfire Community every day

You are here

Pete Lawrence - 01 May 2019


We have just we soft-launched our first template for a fledgling Campfire TV concept, in collaboration with Deepview TV. We appeal to our members and Fundrazers to come together to help us develop our editorial, whether it be writing, film, podcast, programming. We'd like to invite you to be part of the process.

How Campfire TV came about is a classic example of synergy that can randomly occur. I met Drupal developer Alison Bancroft at a Drupal Camp in London and we immediately clicked. The upshot was a trip to Weston Super Mare where I met her and her partner Ian Noah and we talked about how we could develop Campfire TV in conjunction with their own Deepview TV project. This preview site gives a flavour of the look and feel of Campfire TV and how we might schedule an evening of broadcasting, how we might break down the channel into sections of special interest to feature curated and chosen content. We plan to move into live stream and lots of other stuff, which will be made possible if we can start to crowdfund future directions for Campfire. 

We are also planning to stage a one-day session in July (location Somerset, Wed 10 July tbc) to see what we can spark editorially. 

We're adding this as a Fundrazr perk to see what interest we get and if you'd like to support the cause. For further enquiries please email

This is good and chimes with our project values at Deepview ( It's really important that we take the opportunity that Campfire TV can provide, to re-assess not just 'what' is being commented upon or documented in its media, but 'how', 'why', 'for whom' and 'by whom'.

Establishing an editorial space, group, event, etc is a great idea and should help enable the Campfire members to 'spark' some truly collaborative, grass-roots content development.
