A couple of weeks ago I announced that my video Rock and Roll Heaven was entered into the video awards that are taking place in San Francisco, the Vloggies! Well those awards are tonight. Although my categories, Best Editing, Best Original Music and Best Experimental video are not being presented for awards at the show there will be a video screening the non-live announced awards. Cross your fingers and send some mojo my way and maybe I can bring home a Vloggy!
Not only is Rock and Roll Heaven in the running for a Vloggy, my good friend and associate, Joe Klein, of the Podcast Voice Guys will be the announcer at the awards. As I stated before the audience is in one hell of a ride with Joe on that mic!
The Vloggies are now being sponsored by multiple online companies, including but not in any order, Intel, Yahoo Video, Revver, Pandora and a quite a few more. See logos on left for some and www.vloggiessf.com for a complete list. I was really excited to learn that big companies like Yahoo and Intel are jumping on board but also Revver the up and coming video community website where the producers are actually paid for their content, unlike the popular YouTube.
I really wish I was there this evening for promises to be one hell of a blast of an evening! I have it on good authority that the guest list is really impressive. Appearances from popular blogger/vlogger Robert Scoble, CEO of PodTech John Furrier, and Diggnation star Kevin Rose are expected.
