CT Film Festival

Through organizing the Stamford Tech Meetup, I met Dave Bonan (@CTFFNewMedia) who runs the digital arm at the Connecticut Film Festival. I was invited to speak about "Interactive Video and the Future of Filmmaking" as well as to be on a panel entitled "New Media Frontiers 2.0." (Actually I was double booked for a tech demo at the same time as the panel but such is the problem of being in demand! :) jk).

Arrived late to Danbury CT on Friday night but woke up relatively early on Saturday morning to get ready for my 75 minute talk. A few people in the audience appreciated the interactive session with Choose Your Own Adventure, Augmented Reality, Klickable, and some of the other things that I'm working on.

Later at the panel we had a blogger, a programmer, a musician, newscaster and myself talking about the future of media. The discussion got heated and we bounced around from topic to topic but it was a great debate. The audience got into it too and I think that we have some great material for the tape.

Exhausted from the experience and hoping that we can recreate some of the energy at some other upcoming events!
