Ted TalksDo you have an incredible message you’d like  to share with the rest of the world, but aren’t sure how to make that happen? Well TED, the set of conferences that focus on technology, entertainment, and design, is now taking applications to audition at TED@NYC, giving applicants a chance to speak at TED’s 2014 programming in Vancouver, Canada. Since they’re going to be celebrating their 30th anniversary, they’re looking for speakers who have an idea worth spreading and know what it means to move into “the next chapter”. More »

I mentioned in a previous post that Vincent Laforet and I will be on a panel together as part of next weekend’s PhotoPlus Expo (which takes place Oct 28-30 here in NYC), along with Vimeo cohort Blake Whitman. I was actually planning on heading to Jon Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity (and Stephen Colbert’s Keep Fear Alive march) on October 30th, but then I realized our panel Platform Building: Using Online Video Sharing to Attract an Audience, Establish Creativity and Network takes place at the same time. So unless you’re in DC, definitely think about registering for the conference. More details on the panel: More »

IFP’s upcoming Filmmaker Conference takes place here in New York September 14th-19th and features such esteemed panelists as Kevin Smith, Robert Greenwald, and… Ryan Bilsborrow-Koo and Zachary Lieberman.

When I say it that way it looks like we’re featured alongside the industry heavyweights, but there are of course dozens of other panelists, including Rick Allen (pres., Snagfilms), Frida Torresblanco (prod., Pan’s Labyrinth), Gary Hustwit (dir., Helvetica), Lance Weiler (dir., Head Trauma), Barry Jenkins (dir., Medicine for Melancholy) and many others. Check out the schedule of events and get tickets to whatever tickles your fancy. Everyone’s talking these days about the economic hard times indie film has fallen on, and the re-thinking of the market — along with the ongoing developments in digital distribution — should make this a very interesting conference.

Zack and I are on a panel Monday, September 15th at 2:30pm entitled Case Study: Your Film Online. On the panel, we will be talking about our film… online.
