Beet.TV and AOL Video talk content creation
Today I'll be joining some truly creative and talented professionals on a panel to discuss what goes into producing original video content for the web. How do you balance creative vision, inevitable practical limitations, and advertiser needs to produce entertaining and successful web series that audiences want to watch and share?
Today's livestreamed panel is part two of "The Economics of Online Video", a three-part series resulting from a partnership between AOL Video and Beet.TV. The first was a discussion featuring AOL Video's Ran Harnevo on the evolution of the measurement of online video. Next week, AOL's Karen Cahn along with Lloyd Braun and an all-star panel will discuss branded entertainment, finishing out the series.
Panelists will include Dan Weinstein (The Collective), Paul Kontonis (Group VP, Digitas), Chris M. Williams (T180 Studios, Disney), Freddie Wong (Actor, Writer, Producer), Taryn O’Neill (Actor, Writer, Producer), Yuri Barnovsky (Actor, Writer, Producer), Ross Glick (Co-Founder, Indelible), Steve Woolf (VP for Content, Blip.TV), Brandon Laatsch (Cinematographer, Stunt man), and Andy Plesser (Executive Producer, Beet.TV).
This panel should be unique, because it gives us a chance to get fresh perspectives on what's working (and not working) with some of the industry's top minds and most interesting personalities, representing a breadth of platforms and audiences. In such a fast-paced industry, this kind of conversation rarely takes place. In fact, we'd like to invite you to be a part of the conversation by asking questions live. Submit a question to askBeetTV@aol.com, and we'll try to answer it.
