LONG STORY SHORT: The Art and Power of Online Storytelling
Conversations and Talks
With the plethora of new Web-based platforms and channels best suited for concise, easy-to-watch content, short films are experiencing a new life online. No longer the “younger sibling” of feature-length stories, shorts and serials require a keen eye for what's dramatic and cinematic. Join us to discuss the creative and financial opportunities for professionally produced, short-form original content in the digital marketplace with some of the key filmmakers and industry experts leading the charge.
Panelists include: Amber Lawson, Chairman of The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Interactive Media Peer Group Membership, Eddie Schmidt, director, Good Bread; executive producer, Beauty is Embarrassing, which are showing at the Festival this year; Peter Glatzer, feature film producer and co-founder of SHFT.com; and Thomas Zadra, Head of Business Development for Original Video, Yahoo!
