The Revolution Will Not Be Televised:
Celebrating Video Innovation with Brett Gaylor
THIS MONTH'S TOPIC //
Join Brett Gaylor and Vancouver's finest remixologists for an interactive talk about the future of the video on the web. Award-winning documentary maker Brett Gaylor will give us an overview of the innovative approaches to interactive online video from around the world.
Along with moderator Gloria Leung (CBC Vancouver) Brett will talk about new directions and experiences with open video tools, and discuss techniques that media makers and citizens might use to deploy them. Finally, the evening's discussion will look at where the future of web video is going, especially in terms of immediate challenges and opportunities to open video.
Video is an increasingly important aspect of the web -- YouTube alone serves around 1 billion videos per day. What better time to talk with one of the world's leading video innovators?

When & Where
Fresh Media Crew
The current media system in Canada is going through major transformations with both the fall of traditional journalism and corporate media and the rise of new social media tools and citizen-based journalism.
Now is the time to re-imagine and re-invent what we want Canada’s media to look like.
As a collective, we have the agency to create an innovative and informative media system for the present and the future –- to celebrate what’s good now and to create a new media future together.
