The digital entertainment ecosystem is constantly evolving, from what consumers are watching to how they are watching. No one knows that better than David Beebe, an Emmy Award winning digital executive, producer and advisor who recently launched Idea to Screen. Their mission is simple - to inform, empower, and inspire companies, brands, and the creative community to go from idea generation to idea execution. David and his team are working to move media forward by cutting thru a world of inefficiency, disorganization, and bureaucracy with action-oriented insights and real-world best practices for making ideas happen with their strategic and creative consulting services, hands-on workshops, and industry events, like the Women of YouTube Panel and Mixer they produced recently at IgnitedSpaces in Hollywood. Though Beebe is focused on empowering creatives to get their Idea to Screen, he’s still active in developing and producing content, including two sold projects in pre-production with Phil Rosenthal, creator and Executive Producer of “Everybody Loves Raymond.”
On February 4, 2014, Idea to Screen hosted the Women of YouTube Panel at Hollywood’s Ignited Spaces. “The Women of YouTube: A Celebration and Conversation with the Women In Front of and Behind the Camera” brought a diverse group of female panelists to give insight. The purpose was to celebrate the movement of more and more women launching, building and managing channels on YouTube. The event also allowed panelists to give their opinion about the current state of women on YouTube, their experiences and best practices of building channels, challenges they have overcome, audience development and engagement, how to have a positive experience, unique opportunities for women on YouTube, and what's next.
“The Women of YouTube: A Celebration and Conversation with the Women In Front of and Behind the Camera” panel members included Dana Ward, Executive Producer and Host, ClevverTV; Taryn Southern, YouTuber, singer, Film and TV actress and comedian (324k subscribers); Weylie, YouTube fashion and beauty icon, covering everything from style topics to any and all girl advice. (894k subscribers); Jenni Powell, Producer - The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (Emmy Award Winner), Welcome to Sanditon, Emma Approved, Geek & Sundry Vlogs; Shira Lazar, Co-Founder and Host, What's Trending on YouTube; Shanna Malcolm, YouTuber, Film and TV actress and comedian Hey Yo Shanna! (606k subscribers); Kathleen Hahn, Enterprise Partnerships at YouTube; Miss Glamorazzi, DIY beauty, fashion, and lifestyle inspiration YouTube channel (2.2 million subscribers) and Lisa Filipelli, Director of Talent, Big Frame. The event was sponsored by Beachfront Media, General Assembly, The Executive Alliance Group, Kids at Play, Mind Chatter, Silicon Beach LA, and IgnitedSpaces.
The evening was a resounding success and gave attendees an opportunity to meet with the panelists following the session, which is part of Ideas to Screens goal in creating a community of like-minded thinkers to meet and exchange ideas.
Prior to the “Women of YouTube” event and mixer, Idea to Screen produced “What YouTube Creators Need to Know About Copyright and ContentID on YouTube,” where over 100 people showed up for an ignited and productive conversation about all things copyright. The event was opened by Comedian Shannon Bobo who made jokes about how confusing ContentID was on YouTube and speakers included YouTube Parody King BartBaker, Randall the Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger, Byron Ashley of BigFrame, Rian Bosak of Fullscreen, and Tyler Malin of GRAVIDI. Following the panel, the crowd was entertained by a live performance by the one and only Flula Borg.
Idea to Screen launched in November 2013, in a co-branded content focused event in partnership with Digital LA’s Silicon Beach Fest Hollywood conference.
On March 11, 2014, Idea to Screen will host “The Digital Beauties Panel” featuring top makeup professionals and beauty YouTube personalities from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm at Ignited Spaces.
This is a session you will not want to miss!
