So last weekend or so I was in Berlin to Speak at a workshop, and I did an interview with gruenderszene as well as some other journalists. In any case gruenderszene posted the video interviews as well as a nice writeup. In the interviews I talk about twitter, the difference between entrepreneurs in Europe, United States, and Israel. I also talked briefly about my thoughts about how there should be a fund by technology VCs and investors that be given to artists to try and understand the meaning of what we are building. Of course this is already happening, becuase artists will always do this, but it helps stimulus when they can actually live off of these crazy pieces they do. It's an idea that Paulo Cohello says will come but in years time at Le Web. Well here are the videos. They are posted on gruenderszene.de. The translated post is here.
This video is a compilation of a daytrip to Toledo, Spain in the late summer of 2008 with Catalina, her cousin Jules and GabeMac. It was a beautiful day, with a horrific storm at the end. A day to remember.
Vincent Everts is a trendwatcher and tech guru here in Holland. Last week I went over to his house to "catch up". I've got a video interview of him is coming as well. Just need to finish some videos for The Next Web first.
GabeMac, how much he learned from his Vodcast business errors?
"Gabemac is one of the first passionate vodcasters I know. He started in 2003 and has been an video enterpreneur since 9 years. He build huge audiences with his XoloTV, started to build a software platform for videocasting, that failed, he went to spain and did a daily show on www.mobuzz.tv which drew millions. Now he is back in amsterdam, does Viral Video Creative Consultanting, creates video's (for thenextweb amoung others) and plans his next show & exciting venture. What did he learn from his mistakes since he said he made many. It was a little hard because he continiouly talkes about his strength (passion, creativaty etc) rather then his lessons learns but in the end they show up. Who is Gabriel"
It was the last presenter who made us all sit up and take notice at the end of this nine-hour blog-fest: Gabe Mac, self-proclaimed Bad Mother Vlogger, took the day’s Rockstar theme to the extreme as he pranced around the stage to a funky remix of a classic Scottish pipes tune. He wore streaks of blusher, serious eye make-up and twanged his Wii Air Guitar madly. He had our full attention. His siren of a sidekick sported bright red stilettos and figure-hugging leggings, dancing about him with a giant video camera, causing the feminists in the audience to tut tut and shake their heads. I think that was the point. Then Gabe Mac toked on a spliff rolled for him on stage by Stiletto Chick, crooning “good stuff, baby”, and any thoughts of audience fatigue left the room. Like him or hate him, we wouldn’t be bored by him.
Gabe Mac told us his vlogging evolution story which suitably began in Amsterdam but is now based in Madrid. We watched some of his own favourite posts and tolerated his thespian arrogance and shameless self-promotion. In summary, I think Gabe Mac was acting his pants off for us, but can’t really be sure, just that off-stage he seemed like a much quieter soul than he was projecting to us in his presentation. You probably need to decide for yourself whether or not he’s worth watching. Check the link at the end of this post to see what this Bad Mother Vlogger is all about.
Here is a small video
Just got my confirmation for VlogEurope. Can't wait to see all the crazy die hard vloggers again. This is not your big over douchbagged conference or circle jerk gathering. This is one of those truley unique gatherings where people actually discuss their passion for vlogging, everyone is at the same level, learning and teaching. It is always a wonderful experience, and I just wanna thank Jeffrey Taylor and Raymond for putting it together and techsmith for sponsoring. Come an join the fun in Budapest Oct. 18!Technorati Tags: vlog, vlogeurope, vlogging, europe
If you are into Theater and Video, this is going to be very cool. The TF (Theater Festival) organization is looking for students and creatives to Video Blog the Theater Festival in Amsterdam this September. As training I will be giving a 2 day workshop to at the Machouse in Amsterdam on the 21 and 22 of August to those that want to participate.
We will be going through everything from camera work, sound, live moblogging, review of various video sharing sites and more. It will be 2 days of non-stop Video Blogging tips, tricks and techniques. So if you are interested got to this site for more info or email Carolien Labib [ carolien (AT) tf.nl ] to sign up. The course will be in English, because my Dutch is slipping away. Sign up quickly while there is still space.
It was very cool to goto the North last week to give a small workshop in Video Blogging. I saw some old students, met some new ones, and even got some alocoholic beverage which I can only describe as watered down jet fuel. Because I went through the whole process and introduction less than an hour, I flew through the sites as examples and tools that I like to use. I promised everyone I would add it here, so I made a PDF of the keynote project (so no films, but the links are there) so everyone could browse through afterwards. Now I'm gonna start working on my Socail Gaming and Theater presentations. ;-)
