OPEN VIDEO CONFERENCE DISCOUNT FOR FILMMAKER READERS
A highlight of last year for me was the Open Video Conference, a two-day seminar uniting thinkers, technologists, software developers and activists around the concept of “open video” — that is, open, non-proprietary standards allowing video to be generated and distributed on the web with the same ease as text. For a taste of what last year was like, read my coverage here.
I’ll be attending this year’s conference at the Fashion Institute of Technology this coming Friday and Saturday, October 1 and 2. The organizers have kindly offered a discount to Filmmaker readers, so if you’d like to attend, visit this link and enter the following discount code: FILM20. Among the speakers are Filmmaker columnist Lance Weiler, former Obama advisor Susan Crawford, OK Go lead singer Damian Kulash, guerilla filmmaker Vincent Moon, Daily Show senior producer Adam Chodikoff, producer and director Tommy Pallotta, writer and independent film strategist Saskia Wilson-Brown, and Anthony Falzone from the Stanford University Fair Use Project. Hope to see some of you there.
