Finding Your Audience: Social Media and Transmedia Storytelling with Tania Yuki

 Wednesday, June 6 | 6:30-8:30 pm
$35 (reg rate)/$25 (member rate)

social mediaSocial media and transmedia storytelling presents one of the biggest opportunities for independent filmmakers to find and engage their potential audiences with new content. Digital behaviors are like breadcrumbs, signaling interests, passions and communities who can then be reached by new content. But with everything else a filmmaker has to think about when pitching, planning, casting, shooting, editing and distributing their film, what is the best use of time when considering social and transmedia? Join Tania Yuki in this workshop as she reveals digital trends and talks about ways to plan for digital success, simplify audience convergence, and to keep it all relevant and human. Tania is VP of Advertiser Solutions at Visible World and Founder of wimLink, a new kind of organization that develops, supports and promotes women in media and tech.
