VidCon 2011: 'Con for Video Begins Tomorrow!

VidCon 2011 is here kids, and that means online video’s version of Comic-Con is upon us once again. Huzzah!

This year’s LA-based Con is a three day event, the first of which this Thursday shines a focus on the online video industry itself, examining the business models, players and opportunities facing our industry in 2011 and the years ahead. Friday and Saturday on the other hand are geared toward the community and fans that actually devour—and create—the explosion in web shows.
Now if you were lucky enough to score a ticket to VidCon this year before it sold out in record time, then it’s time to start pouring over the agenda and making some tough choices of what to hit up. All of this madness of videomaking fun goes down at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Century City. Did we mention there’s a Nerf gun room?

There’s panels and sessions on everything from tripping out your camera gear, to connecting with the camera to crafting the best headlines for your work. And heaps of top video stars will be on hand performing—Shane Dawson, iJustine, MysteryGuitarMan, Philip DeFranco, The Vlog Brothers and countless more. VidCon founders John and Hank Green like to say, “it’s basically a chance for people in this new world to get together to have a good time, learn stuff, hang out, and help online video get bigger and better.” Read More
