Online Video Entertainment In 2007, And What’s To Come in 2008: Our LA Year-End Review Panel

Earlier this week we had our LA Year-End Review panel and ContentNext Mixer at the WGA theater. The one -hour panel on digital video/entertainment in 2008 touched on a lot of points, and we had a good discussion on the financing aspects, the changing talent management business, the advertising and metrics needs, and other issues. We have an edited version of the panel, in the form of four clips addressing different issues. The video is a bit shaky and user-gen-of-sorts…all of these are between 3-8 minute clips.
