NewTeeVee, a website dedicated to chronicling explosion of online video, is opening its monthly Pier Screening in Los Angeles to animation, puppetry, machinima and other forms of entertainment that don’t involve human actors. Submissions for August’s screening will be accepted until Aug. 21. The live event will be held from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at CatchLight Studios in Los Angeles.
The NewTeeVee Pier Screenings are a series of four summer events designed to bring together content creators and online video aficionados while testing how well online video survives the move from the PC to the big screen. Judges provide entertaining commentary and informative talks by successful online video entrepreneurs. Past themes included episodic content, parody, product placement and user-generated advertising, and citizen news.
A submission form can be found at http://events.newteevee.com/screenings/08/Submit. Prizes for the top three winners will include 320G external harddrives from G-Technology. The first-place winner will also receive a one-terabyte external harddrive and a free laptop engraving provided by Etchstar. The company will provide free onsite etching for iPhones and cell phones at the Screening.
Those interested in delving deeper into the business and technology sides of online video can attend the NewTeeVee Live conference on November 13, 2008 in San Francisco. Learn more at http://newteevee.com.
