Digital Day at New York Television Festival is tomorrow, Friday, September 24.
All online video amateurs and digital professionals are welcome to swing by the newly renovated SVA Theatre on Manhattan’s west side for a half-day of what should be enlightening and educating industry discussion. The entrance fee is free, but reserving your seat is encouraged.
Presented by MSN, Digital Day will feature a series of panels focusing on different aspects of the wide world of web video. They will highlight such industry components as writing for the web, producing transmedia projects, and case studies in branded entertainment. Founder and CEO of Electus, Ben Silverman, will keynote the event and share his viewpoints on the online entertainment industry at large. That will take place right before the Digital Happy Hour with free Stella, which itself will be held before the evening’s Channel101 Screening.
Be sure to catch Tubefilter’s panel, The Straight Dope on Web TV. I’ll be throwing fastballs at the very talented Brett Register (Craig and the Werewolf), Craig Frank (Craig and the Werewolf), Al Thompson (Babby Daddy Memoirs), and Scott Brown (Blue Movies) on what it’s like to be an artist currently working in the space.
