The panel will explore the opportunities and challenges that delivering videos on the web presents to filmmakers. The explosion of viral video on sites like YouTube, quality network programming served by Brightcove and Joost, and the popularity of episodic shows on blip.tv are all part of a tectonic shift in the media distribution landscape. It used to be that production and distribution were the critical barriers faced by filmmakers in reaching their audience. Today audience attention is the scarce resource. This lively panel discussion among industry experts will be of interest to producers, directors, writers, communications specialists, and entrepreneurs alike as we explore the tremendous opportunities, as well as possible pitfalls, of delivering video on the web.
Panelists: Mike Hudack, Co-Founder and CEO, blip.tv; Sean Fitzroy, Filmmaker & Product Specialist, Brightcove; Kevin Anderton, Filmmaker, Midnight Chimes Productions; Moderator: David Tames, Filmmaker & Media Technologist, Kino-Eye.com
