The first post here on Florida Creatives will be to announce our first networking event! One of the goals of this podcast is to serve the community of entrepreneurs, filmmakers, thespians, bloggers and podcasters, artists, designers, architects - all are welcome at this event. The goal is to start a discussion amongst these groups and stir things up in Florida.
If you haven't heard of lonelygirl15, what digital rock have you been hiding under lately? If you don't know she's fake - sorry, but it's true. This article in WiRED magazine tells the whole story, as well as really hitting a sweet chord for aspiring internet media producers such as myself. Oh, and it also says 'NUTS' to a friend of mine who says "people will never watch content on mobile phones". That's right. Nuts to you!
This past weekend was the first ever Orlando Film Festival... in case you missed it, and it's likely you did. The people who put this thing together are well-known and respected in the Florida film community. I got a chance to sit down with the programming team, Brian Quain and Michael King. You may recognize Brian as the inventor of a phenomenon only known as "The Game". Michael is known mostly in Orlando for his Writing-Producing-Acting role in his film The Way Back Home.
Finally, an interactive, on-demand customized service. For some reason, it is only available in Hawaii and only on Time Warner, but it is awesome (if it does what it says it does). Good show.
