Why You Should (Or Shouldn’t) Be Live Streaming

Aaron King, Communications Associate, Center for Global Development

Live events are becoming more and more popular among organizations, but there are some considerations to make before jumping on the live stream bandwagon.  How can you draw an audience? What streaming service should you use?  What are the costs in terms of hardware, software, and staff time? What can be gained/lost by streaming? After attending the session, you will know whether live streaming is appropriate for your organization and will have the know-how to get up and running with it.

11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Engagement is the Eye of the Storm

Donald England, Resource Hero, Prismatic

We are constantly flooded with messaging, in fact we almost have to be on a remote island or in the middle of the sea to escape the deluge of messages. Do you want your messages to be another drop in the storm? After our workshop, your messaging will engage like an eye of the storm – a refreshing respite your audience will look forward to. We will provide simple techniques that will capture your niche audience attention and engage on an emotional level that requires them to take action!  Understanding the techniques will enable you to develop a viral appeal for your niche audience.

Why Your Organization Needs More Video

Mark Salloum, Producer/Director, Highway Media

This session will take a closer look at how TV and the internet have changed the world, and address how a business can keep up with today’s technology. You will learn how to improve SEO results on website using video. We will explore the mindset of today’s consumer (who needs to be engaged & entertained while informed).  Case studies and statistics will discussed which can be used to guide measurements of user engagement .  Finally, watch as a concept for a video is transformed into an effective marketing tool which can help business grow through the Power of Video.

4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Measuring the Effectiveness of Your Video Campaign

Jonathan Marks, Principal, Critical Distance

Companies that have radically disrupted the way they make and share stories are the only ones to grow in these difficult economic times. Governments are slowly learning how to share information directly with the public instead of through the media circus. The proposed session would show who is building engaging video stories, why they work and how to measure their effectiveness.  Shouting a message in the age of social media no longer works. In the sharing economy, we ignore those who shout. This presentation gives examples of how great visual storytelling is helping to build a better, safer world, one frame at a time.

Thursday, December 4th

10:00 am – 11:00 am

That’s My Story & I’m Sticking To It

Derrick Guest, CEO, Griots Roll Film Production

According to research by Visible Measures, 20% of your viewers will click away from a video in 10 seconds or fewer.  So how can we create a great story/ compelling video content for our customer as well as our employees to view that drives our brand message home without boring our viewer to death? What should your story include? How should it be structured?  What are the stories that your viewers/customers have interests in?  What are the best ways to translate your story through new technology i.e smart phone, tablet, etc.

12:00 pm – 1:00 pm


1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Make an Effective Corporate Explainer Video

Justin Katz, Creative Director, Flock of Pixels

Corporate content production is typically rushed into production – leading to a less than stellar product and a “good enough” attitude. In this session we will discuss what it takes to produce work that is EFFECTIVE (the audience retains and understands the information), EFFICIENT (short and to the point), and EASY (quick to produce and scalable for future work).  We will discuss how to communicate with a creative studio and common pitfalls that occur within a corporate pipeline and how to avoid them.  You will see some of the key technologies use, the results of the process, case studies and best practices as well as great examples of corporate video work from around the world.  You will leave with new insights and knowledge to help you with your next video project and instill these best practices into your own pipeline.

2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Distributing Your Corporate Video Effectively

Peter McCluskey, Divisional VP, MultiVu, a PR Newswire Company

‘Rosewater’: Shooting a Big Story in Small Spaces PDF Print E-mail

11/07/2014 11:00 AM Eastern

Kim Bodnia as Rosewater and Gael García Bernal as Maziar Bahari in 'Rosewater.'

From shooting in Jordan during one of the region's hottest months and during Ramadan (when local crewmembers where fasting) to shooting a film that largely takes place in a small interrogation room and prison, Jon Stewart’s directorial debut, Rosewater, was not without its challenges. But cinematographer Bobby Bukowski was up to the task.

“Obviously I knew this project would have many challenges,” Bukowski tells ICG Magazine, “but what was most appealing to me, as a cinematographer, was that more than half the film takes place in an interrogation room and prison cell—not, inherently, the most visual places to tell a story. I had to go right to the center of intention of each scene and make critical choices about designing the visuals—handheld versus dolly, wide versus longer lenses, dark versus bright with high contrast—to help create a visual arc that would mirror the narrative. That was really exciting to pull off.”

Bukowski chose practical lights to illuminate the tight space. “Being in that small of a space with the actor creates an unspoken choreography where you anticipate each other’s moves,” he said. “My approach to cinematography is that the actors always come first. So in lighting these sets with practical lights, there were spots where [the actors] would go into complete darkness or overexposure. There were no marks on the ground for focus or the chance to carefully modulate any exposure changes. Lighting for a space is a given in documentary filmmaking, and that is definitely the example we followed here.”

Behind the Work of Master Trailer Editor Mark Woolen PDF Print E-mail

11/07/2014 12:00 PM Eastern

Vulture profiles the work of Mark Woolen, who has cut some of the most indelible and original film trailers of the past twenty years, including Schindler's List, The Social Network and Birdman.

As Birdman director Alejandro González Iñárritu says, "Mark has the difficult task and very rare talent of finding a film’s DNA in 120 seconds. Once he finds it, he translates it not by revealing its story but by expressing, in a clear but mysterious way, the film’s emotional essence.”

Liam Lynch Creates Web Series Inspired by 'The Monkees' PDF Print E-mail

11/07/2014 12:00 PM Eastern

Liam Lynch's new web series, The Sweet Electric, tells the story of a group of android rock stars, complete with an ironic, but strangely endearing, laugh track. Lynch plays all of the characters and wrote all of the music.

As he tells Boing Boing, "My whole point in making these episodes was really to get this sort of a cozy TV feeling. I wanted something that sat between The Young Ones, Red Dwarf and The Monkees."
