Vanessa Rae is a TV and internet-TV host, an actor, a producer, a painter, and a writer. She’s has spent most of her career producing for traditional television, but recently made the switch to hosting internet-TV, and since then, we’ve seen her all over the internet. So what’s Vanessa up to these days…and how does work on internet-TV compare to traditional TV?
I had the pleasure of a quick conversation with Vanessa to find out…
Vanessa hosts Dvice TV, a tech-gadget show powered by the Sci Fi Channel that’s seen a 25% increase in viewership since its recent makeover, which included a sleek new brand-name and Vanessa’s arrival as host. She also works regularly on RiverWired, an unpretentious take on green living, and Pandomonium Minute, the show about shows distributed by Pando, a peer-to-peer network that lets users download and share large files quickly and easily. We covered the launch of Pandomonium Minute here
In a world with increasingly converged media, it’s nice to see a face that can so easily shift between old and new. As Vanessa noted, it’s all about 360 degree entertainment.
