JibJab, Heather Gold, and EFF: Announcing the NTV Parody Screening Lineup


We are thrilled to tell you about the Metacafe and NewTeeVee Pier Screenings speaker and judge lineup for next Tuesday’s event.

Gregg Spiridellis, co-founder of JibJab and a founding father of viral video, will be our guest interview on the topic of parody.

Spiridellis will grace our judging panel as well, where he promises to play the “Paula” role, claiming to be “probably too nice.”

He’ll be joined by lawyer Jason Schultz of the Electronic Frontier Foundation — who will offer not only criticism but erudite commentary on fair use in parody — and comedian and video star Heather Gold — who actually also went to law school, though we pulled her in for her wit.

So get your tickets today! They’re free and first-come, first-serve at http://newteevee.eventbrite.com/. The event is 7 to 9:30 p.m. on next Tuesday, June 19, on our favorite pier in San Francisco. Food and drink will be provided, but please bring your own warm clothes and blanket to sit on. We promise there will be many, many heat lamps.
