Launch of Mellocast  interviews by investors for investors

Many investors have asked if the Mello* company presentations and Q&A can be broadcast. Not yet, but the founder of Mello investor meetings, David Stredder, has worked with other experienced investors to close the gap between boards and shareholders.

A new video channel that allows each and all to have their questions put to directors, Mellocast ( has been launched today.

The first film is "Face to Face with Faisal Rahmahtallah of Plastics Capital" (AIM:PLA). David (aka Carmensfella) and Paul Scott, best known as Paulypilot on The Motley Fool boards, interview the Executive Chairman of the small-cap AIM-listed firm.

Only companies seen to be decent potential investments with management on shareholders' side will be featured.

Even the video production team includes a full-time investor (me).

Honest feedback is sought on our first go at making serious anti-PR puff films.

Very refreshing to see a video that, as you say, isn't mere PR puff! Look forward to many more, and a good way of helping to sort the sheep from the goats is the self-selection of companies that are prepared to subject themselves to questions without prior notice or editorial control.

Such great news! Well done David et al. This is just such a refreshing change from the bland & stage managed corporate videos that typically appear on listed company websites.

The Web is perfect for empowering investors this way but it takes a degree of initiative and self-starting to make it happen - and it's great that you have stepped up to the plate! Looking forward to many more such webcasts!
