24/7: a DIY Video Summit

Postby dokidoki » Fri Nov 02, 2007 8:37 pm

There is an upcoming event in Los Angeles meant to bring together people who do various forms of hobbyist video work (AMVs, vidding, machinima, political remix, vlogging, etc) and people from the industry to talk about issues in the field and to exhibit a number of works.

I've been working with the people at USC and the other video curators, suggesting videos (both AMV and otherwise), commenting on the selections, and finding themes in the work. Now that sufficient planning has been completed, I'd like to announce that registration is now open for the event. The announcement follows:

--------

Registration is now open for:

24/7: A DIY VIDEO SUMMIT
February 8-10, 2008
School of Cinematic Arts, University of Southern California

Conference web site: http://www.video24-7.org
Blog: http://diy.video24-7.org/

Spaces are limited for attendance at the academic panels and the
workshops. The video screenings are free and open to the public.
Please help us spread the word about this event.

24/7: A DIY Video Summit will bring together the many communities that
have evolved around do-it-yourself (DIY) video:
artists, audiences, technology providers, academics, policy makers and
industry executives. The aim is to discover common ground, and to
chart the path to a future in which grassroots and mainstream, amateur
and professional, artist and audience can all benefit as the medium
continues to evolve.

This three-day summit features:

SCREENINGS OF DIY VIDEO
On February 8 and 9, there will be screenings of DIY video that are
open to the public. These will feature curated programs on design
video, activist documentary, youth media, machinima, music video,
political remix and video blogging. The video program will culminate
in an evening program and reception on February 9 that will draw from
all of these video genres.

ACADEMIC PROGRAM
Registered attendees will have access to the academic program on
February 8 and 9 that features panels on The State of Research, The
State of the Art, DIY Media: The Intellectual Property Dilemma and DIY
Tools and Platforms. Featured speakers include Yochai Benkler, John
Seely Brown, Joi Ito, Henry Jenkins, Lawrence Lessig, and Howard
Rheingold.

WORKSHOPS AND BIRDS-OF-A-FEATHER MEETINGS
On February 10, the day will be devoted to practical and hands-on
workshops for registered attendees on topics such as intellectual
property, media creation, distribution and new-media design tools.
Attendees will also have the option of organizing their own birds-of-a-
feather meetings to connect with other attendees

By the way, the upcoming summit inspired gravenimaj and TaranT to put together a remix panel for AWA. The playlist for that panel is here.

I'm not sure if they've reached capacity for the panels/workshops, but if you happen to be in the area this weekend, the screenings are free. Also, there will be various online coverage (forum/webcast/IRC/twitter/second life) of the event as described here:
