DIY DAYS Boston was a blast. Things kicked off Friday night with a special series of FHTA screenings – Book of Caleb, Ring of Blood and a special Boston premiere of Smile Boston Project. Special thanks to MassArt and David Tames for being hosts to the DIY DAYS and FHTA events this past weekend.

On Saturday we held our last DIY DAYS event in the US until next year. It was a day full of workshops, presentations and round tables. We’ll be posting various audio, video and power point files in the coming weeks. All the content is open so feel free to embed and spread.

DIY DAYS Boston opened with a conversation with Todd Dagres. Thanks to Scott Kirsner over at CinemaTech for recording and posting the conversation. We’ll be posting the video soon.

Todd has produced several independent films (including the Sundance entry ‘TransSiberian’ this year), but he is best known as a venture capitalist who funds start-up companies like Veoh, EQAL, Twitter, and Next New Networks. Our conversation focused on how TV is changing… the as-yet-unproven business models of Internet video… financing and making independent films… how distribution is evolving… and why the word “community” ought to replace the word “audience” in your vocabulary

And big thanks to everyone that helped us to stage four DIY DAYS events (LA, SF, NYC, Boston) in the last four months. We’re in the planning stages for next year so if you have suggestions on where we should hold events, speakers we should include, projects we should cover, ways to improve the events or if you’d like to volunteer to help make an event possible we’d love to hear from you.
