Back Stage is an entertainment-industry-oriented brand started in New York City in 1960. At its core, it’s a robust resource for actors, helping them navigate the media landscape and find performing arts and casting information. The SAG Foundation is an offshoot of the Screen Actors Guild, the labor union which represents over tens of thousands of principle and background performers. Since its inception in 1985, the SAG Foundation’s mission has been to “assist, educate, and inspire, actors.”
Tonight, in New York City, these two established organizations at the center of traditional media will host an exploration of the burgeoning industry that is new media. Net Gain: Creating, Marketing and Building an Audience for New Media is a panel discussion with industry professionals, aimed to give the audiences of both Back Stage and SAG a sound overview of current online video trends and the the myriad ways to get started in web TV.
Join myself, Rob Barnett (Founder/CEO, My Damn Channel), Wilson Cleveland (SVP & Director, CJP Digital Media), Eric Mortensen (Director of Content, Blip.TV), and Vanessa Pappas (Vice President of Audience & Strategic Partnerships, Next New Networks) for what should be a great discussion of how, when, and where you can make new media magic happen.
Not in NYC? No problem. Tune in above at 7PM EST to see the live stream of the event.
