reallyits-oursnow pointed out to me that BMart did the same pose with me at VidCon that he did in the new EA episode with Harriet and I just have to share this because I can’t stop smiling about it!!!
(And the best part is that he’s the one who suggested this pose. Aghhh, all the pemberley digital cast is so sweet I can’t.)

so cute!!!

Can’t wait to see what the community has in store :)

DFTBA

Hey guys! As you know, we released an unofficial survey to you guys about VidCon, and we just wanted to let you know that soon we’ll be releasing a podcast about the results of the survey, and will not be covering any of the news just released by Hank.

DFTBA, and hope to see y’all soon!


VidCon 2015 Planning!

edwardspoonhands:

We’re now on our third full day of VidCon 2015 planning here in Missoula. Monica and Laura as well as a new part-time team member Meredith have flown in to hang with the rest of the team. We’re plowing through problems and solutions and then occasionally just having very good new breakout ideas that are just NEW THINGS and not solving any pre-existing problems. 

Since we’re almost done here, I would like to ask if anyone has anything they’d like to make sure we’re talking about. Here’s some stuff that we’ve spent huge hunks of time figuring out so you know that, yes, indeed, we are thinking about them:

  1. Creating a system for signings that ensures people know what signings they have access to /before they arrive at the event/. This is especially for creators who have large, engaged audiences. There will probably still be signings that are open to all and you’ll just be able to walk up to. But there will be no camping out or waking up at 2 AM to get in lines next year.
  2. Creating a “Creator Track” which I wanted to avoid doing because I wanted to live in the fantasy world where all people in the online video should be treated as potential creators. It will be slightly more expensive than the community track, but nowhere near as expensive as the industry track (which will focus less on content for creators, obviously, and more advertising and networks and that kinda thing.) As much as I feel philosophically weird about this, as soon as I started thinking about it as three separate tracks, the entire conference started to look much more clear to me. We’ll be communicating a lot more clearly about what the creator track is and is not before we launch registration.
  3. Reforming security so that they are more explicitly trained in the feel of VidCon and how to appropriately communicate with our attendees.
  4. Building larger keynote panel areas for panels that we anticipate will be attended by more than 2000 people. (We are also sick of having those panels that tons of people don’t get to attend.)

I will add to this list in edits because there’s definitely stuff I’ve forgotten :-).

EDITS! 

  1. LIVESTREAM - Yes, we want to do this, and we are trying to get a sponsor to pay for it because for some very peculiar reason it costs a surprising amount of money.
  2. PANEL TICKETING - We’re trying to get away from ticketing for panels for two reasons. One, it requires us to completely clear rooms between all panels, which messes up the schedule and creating a ticketing system and was a huge and painful hassle this year. Second, we’ll never actually sell out the room, so letting in ticketed people before non-ticketed people gets confusing. If some people have tickets and some people don’t and the panel is going to start soon then we’d just pack the room to capacity and your ticket wouldn’t guarantee you entry anyway. I think we could find a way to make it work, but the simpler solution is to have a panel room that fits 6000 people which won’t ever fill up (larger than the main stage arena). That’s where the Women of YouTube panel, for example, will be next year.
  3. NON-CALIFORNIAS - VidCon will always be in California…but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t interested in someday doing events that aren’t VidCon in other places. 

So, got any other suggestions for us before we break?
