Opportunities in Online Video- Oct. 5th

Lecture and clips by Filmmaker Vanessa Serrao
Internet video can be a powerful tool for filmmakers, providing a means to reach a large and diverse audience. But in many ways, producing and distributing online video is still a big experiment. What style and aesthetics work online? How are web viewers different than television viewers? How can you make your videos stand out from the ones of cats cuddling with chickens? Award-winning filmmaker Vanessa Serrao will draw on her experiences as a new media producer for Discovery Channel and as the founder of NatureBreak.org, the online wildlife video series and social network for nature lovers, to discuss how filmmakers can make a successful online video.
