On Wednesday 28th of May under the spacious and friendly roof of Betahaus and with the best omens from our sponsor Vidibus we gathered again for a Berlin Video Meetup.
Here is the full video of the event:
I learned a ton during this meetup. We had two great speakers: Hannes Jakobsen from divimove brought to the independent video community the expertise and point of view of a MCN (Multi Channel Network), a business that sits on top of big distribution platforms like YouTube and makes life easier for video producers by optimizing the relationship with the audience and with the advertisers.
In his talk we discover what are the 10 main rules to follow to have a successful YouTube channel, the three main types of content that you can have on your channel and that YouTube is much much more than cat videos.
Anish Patel brought us into the boardroom during the negotiation between big companies that need video – but lack the expertise – and the video producers. He talked about his experience founding Revolution Productions. His talk is a gem for anyone who want to ace the producer-client relationship. In his talk he provides great tips for pitching, pricing and establishing a long term relationship with clients. Make sure to follow his blog at The Video Bloke.
Towards the end we had on stage four lightning talk speakers:
Richard from The 48 Hour Film Project, Florian from Vinubis, Jakob and, finally, Eric from Livestage.
Our next meetup is set for the 30th of July 2014. If you want to propose a talk or a video you are very welcome to use this form.
I look forward to connecting with you all very soon here, on meetup.com or live on the 30th of July.
