Business models for digital distribution seminar

Perth Town Hall Main Hall, $19/$9.50 +bf Book Tickets for Business Models for a Digital Landscape

AFTRS Centre for Screen Business ran this excellent seminar at the recent RevFest and I was so impressed I've asked them to reprise the seminar so that we can get more people along. While the title may sound a bit yawnworthy, this is SO worth your attending if you produce any type of digital content, or are interested in using online tools to market pretty much any product or service.

CSB also have a load of amazing resources online, such as The Knowledge, a series of insightful interviews with experienced Industry practitioners.

"New forms of digital delivery offer both promise and threat to filmmakers. Many ambitious predictions have been made about the impact of the internet. But how much is real and how much is hype? What are the future business models? And, most importantly, where will Australian content be in this new media landscape?"

The expert panelists featured at the Seminar at Byte Me! Festival will include Rob Antulov, Kylie Robertson and Simon Britton.

Kat also ran a BM!F style workshop at the ICTWA 2007 Conference called The Social Web is Serious Business - the resources are still online, you may find them useful.
