I recently helped submit a panel idea for the upcoming 2010 SXSW interactive festival. To better promote this idea, I worked with my fellow in-this-economy.com creators — Rondo Estrello and Rachel Pinn — to write and direct the video you see above.
What started out as an after hours experiment quickly turned into something I’m extremely proud of. The video received a fair amount of blog attention and helped spread the word about our panel. However, we won’t know if we were selected until sometime at the end of this month.
Oh, and one other note: That is my voice doing the narration on the video. So, if you are reading this and you happen to be a voice over agent looking for hot, young talent, drop me a line.
I also have to give huge shout outs to Colin Alsheimer and Alyssa Gardina from fiveoclockdallas.com and Jennifer Conley from iliveindallas.com for all of their hard work on getting this panel idea submitted and promoted. You guys are awesome.
UPDATE: WE GOT IN! Our core conversation will be on March 13 at 11am. If you’re going to be at SXSW swing by for some interesting dialogue on all things citizen journalism.
And just in case you didn’t see the beginning of this update: WE GOT IN! YEAH!!!
