With the advent of new technologies, devices and the emerging real-time aspects of the web, stories can travel and build audiences in new and exciting ways. The confines of a single format are replaced with the ability to move audiences from one experience to another — from one screen or device to another. There has been a lot of hype around the concept of social media but what does it really mean for storytellers? How can you use free tools and services to tell stories, engage an audience and most importantly, extend the life of your project? Lance Weiler (The Last Broadcast, Head Trauma, HiM) walks you through the process of getting up and running, understanding how to staff, how to budget, how to engage an audience and how to set realistic goals whilst determining measurements of success.

TALK – FROM HERE TO AWESOME: Production has become democratized while digital distribution is quickly becoming commoditized thus fragmenting the marketplace and resulting in little to no revenue. The problems that the independent film industry faces are well documented but where do we go from here? What are the new models of discovery and distribution? How are storytellers going to fund, create, distribute and sustain from their work?

ROUNDTABLE – NEW MODELS IN MUSIC
The music industry will never be the same again. The days of record advances and label supported tours are all but gone. Recorded music has lost much of its value due to the ease of sharing digital files. But as the industry struggles to maintain its’ control with the adoption of 360 degree deals which give them a take of licensing, touring, merchandise and music sales – many musicians are foregoing traditional deals and forging direct relationships with their audiences. BRIAN McTEAR (Weathervane), JESSE VON DOOM (CASH Music), LEAH KAUFFMAN (Phrequency) and MARK SCHONEVELD (yvynyl) share their personal insights into new models which promise to have impact beyond the music industry.
