24/7: A DIY Video Summit (tags)
We are in the early stages of a fundamental transformation in how we create, share and view dynamic visual media. Millions of people are flocking to online video-sharing sites like YouTube, Revver, imeem, Stage6, blip.tv and Eyespot, where they watch and contribute video content around the clock-24/7. This summit will bring together creative minds from this emerging media ecology to showcase the most innovative contemporary experiments in viral, amateur and peer-to-peer video, bringing together creators, activists, policymakers, Internet companies, media-industry professionals, students and educators. In addition to academic panels and workshops, there will be a series of free DIY video screenings. Q&A sessions will follow.
