ENGAGE: The NYC Digital Storytelling Conference
Wednesday, April 10, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Digital Storytelling is evolving for brands, advertisers, film makers, producers and tech companies. The basic principles of “storytelling” remain unchanged. The execution of how to tell a good story has changed. New technologies have created new opportunities for advertisers, brands, and platforms to engage audiences and provide new contexts in which audiences, brands and advertisers can converse and interact. This cross flow is enabled by technology and how content is served up digitally (mobile, video, social media, web, video games, connected TV’s, social TV platforms, tablets and film). Hardware by which we tell stories has changed. The audiences we all want to reach have changed their content consumption patterns as well. What does this mean for the people who create the stories, the people who watch them and the advertisers who enable them. This is the Digital Storytelling Conference.
