Dancing Logos

This isn’t a good sign. I have seen the set.  It is handsome and spacious.  But programmers are going to manipulate images on 13 LED screens “looming over the floor”?  LED “ribbons” will carry tweets and Facebook posts?  Running clouds?

1.  It sounds Orwellian.

2.  Too much slickness gives an air of . . . slickness.

3.  The production values used by networks should not necessarily be the production values adopted by conventions.  National political conventions happen in America only once every four years.  They’re supposed to have stature, and a certain calm.

4.  Network producers assume America is ADD-addled and needs lots of beeps and bops and scrolls and dancing logos.  They’re giving us ADD.  The Republicans better not be too clever.  Americans aren’t in search of clever.
