The Business of Web Filmmaking
Monday, December 3, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)
Today, the boundaries between theatrical, television, desktop, tablet, and smartphone screens are rapidly dissolving, and with them, the tried and true business models that content creators used to count on. What does this mean for making money from storytelling in the digital age, and how can today's content creator make a career in this rapidly changing field?
On December 3, Andrew and Michael Gregory—of the band The Gregory Brothers and famed YouTube channel Schmoyoho—will talk with Adam Neuhaus, Head of Development for THNKR at @Radical Media. How does filmmaking differ on the web? What are the the potential profit models? What is the entry point into online storytelling?
Moderated by Matt Spangler, Tribeca Enterprises' EVP for Marketing and Content.
Afterwards, network, mingle and continue the conversation with a drink from the (cash) bar. The event is free, but space is limited. RSVP today!

The Gregory Brothers band is best known for their video mash-ups on their YouTube channel Schmoyoho (with over 1.3 million subscribers and 475 million video views), specifically the hugely popular “Auto-Tune the News” series—now titled “Songify the News”—which features digitally manipulated voices and videos conformed to a melody. Their “Bed Intruder Song” was the first YouTube video to cross over onto the Billboard Hot 100. In October 2012, The Gregory Brothers joined Maker Studios, a next-generation talent first media company.
