We had a great turnout for the 2nd WebTV Group DrinkUp on Feb 18th. About 55 people made it over to One Alfred Place and judging by the noise level everyone was having a great time. As well as welcoming people from the BBC, ITV.com and The Embassy of Finland (!) we also had our first major deal brokered that night. It’s under embargo at the moment but as soon as I can tell you more I will!
Many thanks to Bill Gash for his support on this one and to Sorosh Tavakoli CEO of our drinks sponsors Videoplaza.com. They showed off their online video monetisation system on the in house plasma to much interest. We all enjoyed the Swedish themed lucky business card dip (which I suspect was envisaged in the duty free shop at Stokholm departures lounge when they got snowed in and we had to cancel this the first time!) Congratulations to the winner of the limited edition red sequined bottle of Vodka and the other Swedish goodies in the draw.
Thanks also go to the staff at One Alfred Place who ensured everyone didn’t go without a drink and provided tours and answered questions on the club.
The next one will be in May and if you haven’t joined the group yet click here and you’ll get an invite as soon as we’ve set it all up. Many thanks to everyone who came along and I look forward to welcoming more new faces at the next one.
Apologies but due to the adverse weather in London the above event is cancelled.
We will re-schedule it in a few weeks at Century Club 61-63 Shaftsbury Avenue, London W1D 6LQ.
We are generously sponsored by Videoplaza and CEO and Founder Sorosh Tavakoli will be on hand to answer questions about their new video advertising service. They have managed to solve the big question of how to make online video profitable – so come along and find out how.
I run the London based WebTV Group, a loose collection of people working in online video. With broadband speeds increasing and innovative video serving platforms springing up such as Ooyala the barrier to entry for anyone who wants to create their own online TV station is lowered. We meet up onece a quarter to share a drink and network. If you would like to join us please register here and we’ll let you know when and where the next event is.
We are currently creating an ambient/classical DVD project with renown producer Craig Leon under the band name Orbit. We’ll have a 3min demo up here soon, so check back to have a sneak preview. We are creating the piece to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the moon landing in July 1969.
We’re writing and storyboarding the project in the South of France at a villa in Villefranche-sur-Mer in early February. Check back here if you want to follow what we’re up to.
