Hey East Coasters! Want to come out and watch online movies accompanied by an audience of living people rather than the solitary glow of your laptop screen? Eat popcorn and drink beer? You may be hipper than us geeks, but we’re not that different, are we? Join us on September 24 for a bonus Pier Screenings live event held in New York City, continuing the series we’ve been running in San Francisco all summer.
The theme for September is “love stories,” which we’re opening to wide (but not pornographic) interpretation. Have you made a movie about a crush, a friend, a lover, a favorite food, a favorite place, or anything else you love? If it’s under five minutes, and you own the rights to it, submit it to the NewTeeVee community site (directions here), and encourage your friends to turn out and rate it. The six most-loved shorts will be shown at the event in New York.
We don’t get out to New York often, so we hope you’ll be able to make it too. Most of the team — Jackson, Liz, Craig, Joey, and Om — will be in attendance. And it’s free.
P.S. If you can’t make it, don’t despair. We have one last event up our sleeves — a full one-day conference on November 14 in San Francisco. Check out the NewTeeVee Live
placeholder site if you’d like to be on the email list, and look for a full announcement here in the next couple days.
