“More than Words: the Power of Images & Video” will focus on the next wave of web monetization, video.

“Increasingly, filmmakers are creating original, episodic video for the web, bypassing traditional film and television. Yet most of these series are not monetizing their content. This presentation will be an overview of some of the revenue-generating strategies for Black content online, including: sponsorship, product placement/branded entertainment, ad networks, crowdfunding and subscription. Particular attention will be paid to utilizing Black blogs, social networks and channels (Hulu-style video networks as well as You Tube) for increasing content scale,” says Aymar.
