There are still seats available for tonight’s Writing and Producing for the Web: An Evening with Richard Dunn and Julian McCrea – Moderated by Frank Chindamo at 7:00 p.m. To register, click on the following link: https://events.benchmarkemail.com/event/F65A57122.
Richard Dunn was toiling away at a day job as a lighting designer for Disney. Then one night, when he had an overnight layover at the Las Vegas Airport, he shot a web video, “All By Myself” which reached viral status in June 2014, topping 20 million in 14 days. His video sparked international interest and after Richard appeared on major media outlets such as CNN, ABC, CBS and NBC, his career has finally “taken off”. Join us as Richard shares his process and what he is doing next – looking to create a follow-up video and is open to ideas. Maybe you have that idea?
Julian McCrea is a British writer who was head of New Media for the BBC’s “Dr. Who”. Julian then produced a web video “The Craftsman” which led to his development of a new technology, Story Immersion. Story Immersion reads your facial reactions as you watch videos on phones and tablets and adapts the story accordingly. You’ll be among the first people in the U.S. to see this exciting new technology. Julian has a development deal to make a web series for TWO different studios – and he is looking for writers!
Please note: Julian will be here in person and joining us for a networking reception after the event but Richard will take part via Skype.
This is an event and opportunity not to miss. So please join us and meet two pioneers as they discuss their experiences and learn how we as writers and content creators can work alongside them on their next projects.
