The New York Television Festival just announced its lineup for Digital Day.
Presented by MSN, the afternoon’s events are completely free to the public (though reservations are strongly suggested) and will feature a series of discusions covering topics beneficial to both amateurs and online video pros. Those include panels on writing for the web, producing transmedia projects, and case studies in branded entertainment.
But the biggest draw out of all the online-oriented events (aside from the Digital Happy Hour with free Stella) will certainly be Ben Silverman‘s keynote. The Founder and CEO of Electus is slated to be on stage for a “wide ranging exploration of the current digital entertainment landscape.” In less than a year since it’s launch, Electus has already engaged top brands and Hollywood talent for a number of digital properties. Hearing Silverman talk about where Electus, and the industry is headed, should make for an interesting presentation.
And if you want to see some prime examples of the type of digital entertainment all the speakers will be discussing, be sure to attend a few screenings of official selections from the NYTVF Independent Pilot Competition. Find out which ones catch your eye by watching the trailers here.
