What a busy beginning to the summer! May and June were filled with web television events: Shira Lazar’s GeekOut! ’09, the Independent Television Festival Launch Party, launch parties for new web series The Gloomers, Road to the Altar, and The Day Player, new Web TV Meetups in New York, and of course Tubefilter’s monthly downtown New Media Vault events.
We heard a lot of feedback since our last Hollywood Web TV Meetup in April at Avalon Hollywood, and we are thrilled to announce Tubefilter’s July Web Television Meetup at Busby’s East in Los Angeles’ Miracle Mile is going to be our best one yet! Web television juggernauts Alex Albrecht and Hayden Black will be sharing with us their secrets to becoming the “undisputed sexiest men in web television,” and offer some sneak peeks of their upcoming projects. This is truly the meetup you do not want to miss!
This month’s speakers:
Alex Albrecht has been in the web game for over six years. While working as co-host of TechTV’s The Screen Savers, he met Kevin Rose and founded one of the most successful web television partnerships and created the most popular running web series of all time: Diggnation. He also starred in the cult classic cooking show Ctrl+Alt+Chicken, created The Totally Rad Show and took home a Streamy Award for Project Lore which he also created. Alex was also honored by the Producers Guild of America making the Digital 25: Visionaries, Innovators and Producers of 2009 list. If all that wasn’t enough Albrecht is in pre-production on a super secret sci-fi web comedy due out around December ’09 (shhh!).
Hayden Black created, wrote, produced and starred in Goodnight Burbank, and did the same for Abigail’s Teen Diary, and now he’s doing the same again for The Cabonauts, the first original US commission from Dailymotion, co-starring a wealth of iconic actors and actresses from sci-fi TV and movies. With views in the multi-millions, awards and Webby nominations (Best Comedy ’08), and rave reviews from the press (“A web sensation” – LA Times, “Black runs circles around the competition” – Wall St. Journal), Black has now retired from public life and will only be communicated with via Facebook.
