The end of the year is a very special time when publications distributed on any medium, new or old, do a few things. One, they usually make lists. A lot of them. And two, they look back on and evaulate the year that’s almost past and predict what the year that’s almost commenced has in store for whatever business, niche, industry, or genre it is they cover.
Now that my requisite end-of-year thoughts are out of my head and onto the internet, it’s a good time to open the floor. We’ve been contacted by and reached out to a handful of online video experts and professionals from different areas of the industry (one of which you’ve already heard from) to dispense advice, weigh in on the state of the industry and where it’s headed in 2012, and/or discuss his or her company’s role in the ever and quickly evolving new media landscape.
The opinions expressed in the guest posts will vary, but the articles all seem to have at leas one thing in common: 2012 will be a very big year for online video.
If you have your own thoughts on the state of the online video industry or feel pangs of inspiration after reading something here, be sure to let us know. We’ll do our best to post your thoughts and predictions, too.
