I recently had the pleasure of speaking at one of the hottest digital media events held in 8 cities around the world - Social Media Week - about some of my favourite topics - media, broadcasting and the Internet. Marie (my partner-in-crime on NatandMarie.com) and I lead a conversation called “Engaging Entertainment.” Needless to say, this was a pretty exciting milestone (and experience) for our team. I love getting to chat to people about online video and how it’s evolving. But adding livestreaming and true engagingement into the mix was truly inspiring. Here’s the description of the talk:
“What if you took any camera that could stream, free services, inexpensive tools a supportive circle of friends and hedged a major bet on a motley crew of statistics sourced from several online sources? You’d see a batch of new talent and new growth emerge that blur the lines between radio, television and social media engagement. Live streaming entertainment is on the 2011 docket for the team behind NatandMarie.com. From the technical to the marketing, from the production to the delivery, the show’s team will share some behind-the-scenes tips and overcoming challenges on creating engaged entertainment for the 21st century.”
You can watch the LiveStream of the talk here (it doesn’t ACTUALLY start until around 20 minutes into the recording).
