If you live in the Boston area you will not want to miss the 17th Annual Pro Video Show sponsored by The Camera Company to be held Friday and Saturday, March 9-10, 2007 at Stonehill College, in Easton, Massachussetts (Exit 17B off Route 24). This annual event provides local media makers with the opportunity to check out new equipment, talk with fellow media makers, and attend a wide range of workshops and seminars. Yours truly will be presenting two of the seminars, “Delivering Video on the Web” and “Champagne Production Values on a Beer Production Budget.”
Here’s a description of my seminars:
Delivering Video on the Web
Learn how to make video available on the web, earn money with it, take a look at how it can be delivered to devices and web browsers, and examine the opportunities and challenges it presents. The launch of the video iPod, availability of video on iTunes, the explosion of viral video, Google’s purchase of YouTube, and the amazing quality of shows on blip.tv are all part of a tectonic shift in the media distribution landscape. Television producers, independent filmmakers, communications specialists, advertising executives and entrepreneurs will all learn how to benefit from the tremendous opportunities made possible by delivering their video on the web. Cost: $25. Saturday, March 10, 2007 at 12:00 NOON to 2:00 p.m.
Champagne Production Values on a Beer Production Budget
Video production budgets are tighter than ever, and the increasingly saturated media environment demands that your video must stand out from the rest. In this seminar, you will learn about the strategies, creative elements, and production tools that together deliver what viewers and clients often describe as “high production values.” Practical discussion and examples help you apply cost effective methods right away, resulting in champagne production values on a beer production budget. Cost: $25. Saturday, March 10, 2007 at 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Sounds like a terrific show! I’ll have to look at my schedule.
Likewise interested. I have to say though, regarding your second talk (Champagne Production Values on a Beer Production Budget) – good Beer costs more than bad Brut. And don’t tell me there’s a better champagne than Brut.
Chuckle! I guess I was thinking along the lines of Dom Perignon Champagne vs. Budweiser Beer, but I did not want to use trademarks :-)
Your seminar was definately down and dirty practical web video know how that introduced me to the wonderful world of blip.tv! If I had known about blip.tv months ago I would’ve saved myself so much work going through so many subpar substitutes for the video on my blog. And now I feel like I can show my prospective clients the kind of quality video that they will see in their edited DVD, not the pixelated poor quality video I see so often on the web.
I hope I’ll see you again at the next Pro Video show…can’t wait to see what else you have up your sleeve. Oh and next time…make it 5 hours!
