BAFTA Digital Media Panel
Tonight was the night after mucho dates switches and hard work.
I produced (with the help of many) a panel called "Master Class: Who Changed the Channel: the Digital Media Landscape in 2010." It was for BAFTA East Coast. The event was held at this great space called The Scandinavia House on Park Avenue South which has a wonderful theatre and a lovely reception area with outdoor space. (Not to mention Scando store and restaurant!)
I could not have asked for a better panel or moderator. The conversation was lively, interesting and much more in depth that I had imagined. I learned a lot.
Here was my excellent line up:
Shelly Palmer. Host of "Digital Life with Shelly Palmer"
Rob Barnett, Founder and CEO, My Damn Channel
Albie Hecht, CEO, Worldwide Biggies
Kenny Miller, Co-Founder, Starling TV
Emil Rensing, Chief Digital Officer, EPIX
They were asked by Shelly what one website they are excited about right now and here is the list for your perusal:
