Let’s face it, summer is finally over. Those long days of daylight will now begin to slip away, the air will turn crisp, and before you know it your clock will “fall back” and you’ll find yourself wandering around in the dark at 6:00pm like some extra from I Am Legend. But fear not, you undead nightwalker! This October 19, we have a special treat for you: an extra special Tubefilter Hollywood Web Television Meetup! What could be a better kickoff for the first day of Digital Hollywood and the Prospective Membership Meeting of the International Academy of Web Television?
Tubefilter Hollywood Web Television Meetup is proud to present Going LIVE!, an in-depth look at what it takes to pull off a live television show on the web. With the proliferation of live content online—thanks to platforms like UStream, Justin.tv, Stickam, and Livestream, it’s no wonder so many web television creators are producing high-quality live content online. Live broadcasts are an event in themselves, which provide a level of interactivity, buzz, and community building that you just can’t get from on-demand programming. We’ve pulled together a group of leading innovators in the live web television in an event you don’t want to miss.
This month we’re back at Busby’s East but we’re breaking up the format with a limited-seating panel starting promptly at 7:30 pm, followed by our infamous networking mixer, which starts at 8:45 pm. Don’t miss the great conversations and a very exciting announcement from the Tubefilter Team. We really want to tell you right now, but we can’t!
