One speech plus a dozen video cameras and a hundred people tweeting live
In early 2011, I delivered a keynote speech about Real-Time Marketing & PR at the Marketing Sherpa Email Summit in Las Vegas.
A dozen people in the audience filmed the talk from different locations and nearly 100 tweeted it live.
I created a crowdsourced video, with inspiration from crowdsourced concert films by Radiohead and the Beastie Boys, to pull everything together to give you a sense of what it was like to be in the audience experiencing the talk in real-time.
Direct link to trailer in widescreen (2 minutes+) is here.
Complete crowdsourced video presentation (50 minutes).
I love applying real-time ideas to create a video about… well… real-time marketing & PR.
I wonder. Is there something you can do like this in your business?
My friends at HubSpot took this idea to create A 4-Step Guide to Producing Crowdsourced Video.
Daniel Burstein of MarketingSherpa blogged it here. Daniel says: "As I said when I introduced David at the Email Summit, we brought him in to help inspire marketers to take a fresh look at how they approach their marketing efforts. And kudos to David for holding himself to the same standard, breaking down the paradigm of what a professional speaker’s video could look like."
Thanks Daniel. This was a blast to do and I'm so happy that I was able to do it at your event.
What an incredible team effort this video was. Over 100 people worked on it. Thank you all so much!
