Podcasting. Videocasting. Streaming. Multimedia resources can be powerful tools for advancing your nonprofit or social change cause. On July 6, Philly Net Tuesday will have an interactive session focused on the technologies and opportunities for creating, editing and distributing audio and video content via the web.
Our presenters will be Steve Lubetkin (Podcast Steve) of Lubetkin Communications, and film maker and nonprofit communications strategist Wendy Univer. This interactive evening will cover tools and technologies for getting started, tips for effectively creating and editing video and audio content, and alternatives for distribution (e.g., when is Vimeo better than YouTube?). In addition to loads of useful, up-to-date information, we’ll have the opportunity to demonstrate these tools and skills, and compare and contrast different options. (You’re encouraged to bring your own audio or video recording equipment to try some new things yourself.)
This will be a valuable opportunity to learn about, experience and even practice with some of the best and latest tools for utilizing audio and video content to enhance your cause or organization’s web presence. The program is still being formed, so if you have some audio or video expertise or tools you’d like to share, let us know. The more we share our expertise and perspectives, the more effectively we can all “use the social web for social change”.
As usual, RSVP’s are appreciated, but not required. Lite fare will be provided. So, bring your audio or video recording equipment if you like, but definitely bring your questions, experience and perspective for an evening of sharing and learning.
