What a month March was — heaps of digital entertainment conferences, Web Television Week and of course The Streamy Awards. What was missing? The one and only Tubefilter Hollywood Web Television Meetup. We’ve missed you all since the last Meetup which rounded the block at maniaTV studios, and it’s time to get the movers and shakers in LA’s web television scene together again!
This month we’re at Avalon in Hollywood, with plenty of room for LA’s thriving web television community to mix, mingle and cut loose from Final Cut or Avid for a few hours. It’s Friday night, so come ready to do business, and socialize. Mingle with some Streamy Award winners and nominees, mug some camera time with the crew from the always popular KoldCast TV, talk up your series, hear from some special guests and have a chance at some super cool door prizes like a special edition Sony PSP, editing software and more!
April 17th, 7:00PM – Avalon Hollywood – 1735 Vine St. Hollywood, CA 90028
Call For Entries!
Ok, here’s what we’re looking to screen at this month’s Meetup. We want to showcase what’s coming up in 2009. We need trailers or sizzle reels for unreleased web series that are due out sometime this year. So submit your series’ trailer for consideration now. Sadly, we can’t screen them all, but we’re looking for a nice mix of genres and formats. You don’t have to be LA-based to have your trailer screened, so send it in anyways.
Here’s another look at February’s web series screening sampler:
METRANOME — This month’s Meetup is sponsored by Metranome, who will be on hand to show off some of their nifty technologies that will make watching web series on mobile devices way easier. They are also the makers of Poptiq, a clever iPhone app that lets you watch pretty much any online video right on your iPhone or iPod. Today they announced a partnership with both 60Frames and Austin-based DadLabs, who will be the first web series to use Poptiq Powered, their turnkey solution that enables content owners to launch mobile applications built exclusively around their content’s brand.
