Watch a popular presentation, “Vimeo: The Art of Getting Paid” below:

My slides from DIY Days in NYC March, 2011.
My speech at the RIDM Doc Festival and Market in Amsterdam.
My talk for the New York Foundation for the Arts – about using technology to connect with audiences and build a fan base. A little bit about where things are going with transmedia and how artists might use these techniques.
My speech on innovating new business models for transmedia (and cross-platform, generally) as given at the Pixel Lab, Wales.
The second half of the Atlanta, PushPush weekend seminar was on audience engagement strategies. This includes everything from social media to transmedia and ended with a workshop on planning the distribution and outreach for six local films.

My presentation for Shooting People and DCTV on distribution and engaging audiences. A new presentation with some mixed older materials and some very new stuff summarizing how to think about transmedia.
A workshop on how to make a sustainable living as a filmmaker in today’s marketplace, and in light of “free.” Good for organizations and other artists, and not just about free, but about how to survive a bad marketplace using new tools.
Another version of a presentation I have given before. Some new examples added for the Power to the Pixel London Film Forum.
My very quick presentation at DIY Days Philly on how filmmakers and any other artist can make a living in a world where everything seems to be available for free.
