From DIY Days Boston: Todd Dagres on Indie Film and Internet Video
To kick off DIY Days in Boston on Saturday, Lance Weiler and I interviewed Todd Dagres on stage.
Todd has produced several independent films (including the Sundance entry 'TransSiberian' this year), but he is best known as a venture capitalist who funds start-up companies like Veoh, EQAL, Twitter, and Next New Networks. Our conversation focused on how TV is changing... the as-yet-unproven business models of Internet video... financing and making independent films... how distribution is evolving... and why the word "community" ought to replace the word "audience" in your vocabulary.
Here it is in MP3 form (41 minutes long.)
Lance, Arin Crumley, David Tamés, and all the volunteers did a great job putting on the event -- and the audience was amazing.
