I've been part of the Digital Broadcast Committee for BlogWorld And New Media Expo with a team of scary smart people (with Jeffery Powers of GeekAZine at the helm). We are the ones who put together the digital broadcast track content for the event and I like what we've done so far. Today I'm thrilled to announce the YouTube Panel scheduled for 330p on Saturday, October 16th. I hope to see you there.
YouTube: Process, Personalities and Profits
This ain't your Father's YouTube. 1080p HD video, live streaming, more than a billion subscription notices a week and partners making six figures a year are just a few highlights of what's NOW. Learn the processes required to be part of this game and the profits possible from a superstar panel made up of Andrew Baron from Rocketboom.com, Kent Nichols from AskANinja.com, and Julie Perry of BlastMedia.com. Panel Host Paul Colligan will guide you through a lightening fast (but accessible) look at how you can profitably bring your content to the YouTube Screen.
Andrew Baron is creator of the groundbreaking web videoblog, Rocketboom. After receiving a B.A. in Philosophy from Bates College in Maine, Andrew graduated with an M.F.A. in Design and Technology in 2003 from Parsons in New York City. While teaching at Parsons and MIT in 2004, the idea for Rocketboom came to him, inspired by the implication of the democratization of the medium. Andrew currently serves as CEO and Creative Director to the company, which has expanded to include 5 shows, including the award winning Know Your Meme, and a new video discovery platform, Mag.ma.
In 2005, Kent Nichols and Douglas Sarine created the pioneering web series Ask A Ninja. Since then, the series has been viewed over 140 million times, quoted on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, featured in the New York Times Magazine and won numerous awards, including the first YouTube Award for Best Series. In October 2010, Ask A Ninja relaunched with daily content on YouTube and at AskANinja.com.
Julie Perry is the Social Media Director at BLASTmedia public relations firm where she oversees YouTube channels and campaigns for over 12 diverse clients. Her YouTube career began as the creator, writer and host of TheBoaters TV video blog in 2007, where she has received over 800,000 views on YouTube alone. Julie is also a contributing author to “Success Secrets of the Social Media Marketing Superstars,” published by Entrepreneur Press in August 2010.
Paul Colligan (moderator) helps busy people leverage the technologies of new media to get their message out to more people, with less effort, and for greater profit. He is CEO of Colligan.com Inc. and manages several popular Internet properties that include YouTube Secret Weapon, Automate Sales, The New Media Inner Circle, and PaulColligan.com.
