Be The Media! Workshop with Andrew Lynn: Beyond You – How to Build Your Own Internet TV Channel

May 6, 2007 @ 12:00 pm 5:00 pm EDT

Do you want to deliver your message to the world but don’t know how or even what tools you need? You’ll be relieved to know a lot of the work has been done for you. You just need to plug it in. Participants will learn about resources available for aspiring Internet TV producers and the thriving online viewing community. Going way beyond the latest YouTube gem, we’ll discuss why (or why not) you should start vlogging (video blogging), demonstrate techniques for compression, syndication, promotion and offer resources to learn more. Participants will have a chance to create their own syndicated Internet video channel and begin the promotional process. You supply the ideas! Intended for people with some computer experience, video experience is helpful but not necessary. Participants with laptop computers are encouraged to bring them. If you don’t have a laptop, but have videos you’d like to post on your new Internet TV channel, bring them on CD or DVD as data files. PLUS: Brainstorm directly following the session with local community media activists interested in building regional capacity for various Internet distribution projects.

Andrew Lynn is an artist, documentarian, and educator living in Brooklyn, NY. Currently on staff at Manhattan Neighborhood Network Youth Channel where he develops media literacy curricula and organizes an online video distribution network — he has co-produced documentaries including Independent Media in a Time of War, Still We Ride, and is now working on the ongoing series My Survival Kit.

We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
