VJ : Video jockey or Visual jockey?

Post by erland »

i'm confuse..
i want to named my self as a man who play a visualization..
what should i called my self??

VJ : Video Jockey?
VJ : Visual Jockey?

Video : is a moving frames.
Visual : everything, including pictures..
So, in this case, picture is not a moving frame.. a visualization contains all about films (still frame and moving frames).. but in the end, a moving frames is made by still frames...hehe

Get my point of view?

My opinion is.. we should call ourselves :
VsJ : Visual Jockey... shouldn't?
In Resolume we play not only video.. but also picture and flash files..

Still Complicated somehow...

Because the term VJ has always been confused with MTV VJs people have always been searching for a different & better name but VJ (for Video Jockey) is still the most used. CDM is trying to push the name Visualist but i find that very hard to pronounce more then 5 times ;-)
