Let’s Create New Media in Chicago!

A few of us are having a party or a soiree so to speak!  If you are a new media content creator, small business, entrepreneurs, ad agency, local traditional media, local actors/talent, well the list could go on… That has heard some buzz words about social marketing you should attend this event.  We’ll have fun socializing and talking about all things nerdy.

There are all kinds of crazy ideas floating around out there about this stuff and we’re working on figuring it out like everyone else.

Here’s the gang making this happen but we want to add to this list for the next event!
James Gustin and Andrew Ettenhofer of Fig Media
Tim Jahn of Beyond The Pedway
Gregg Jaffe of Big Teeth Productions
Sean McMenemy, Matt Kern, and David Shelleny of Midwest Media Now!

Hope to see you at the Party! Check out the details below.

What’s all the hubbub?
Chicago has a ton of creative energy and people creating great podcasts, video series, and more! We want to bring everyone together to network and have some fun! This isn’t about watching panels and taking notes; this is about doing!

So what exactly is happening?
Mingle with and learn from new media producers and other creative people! We’ll be showing various productions created by folks here in Chicago and creating brand new content on the spot as well!
The hubbub includes:
On The Spot – Like ‘Jaywalking’ but Chicago-centric, hipper, and starring you! Let’s see how much you know about Chicago!
Local New Media Showcase – A showcase of locally produced new media web series, podcasts, and more.
…and more!

Why should I care?
Because new media can be a great tool for small businesses, entrepenuers, agency folks, and creative people alike! And it’s fun to create! We want new media folks to meet new audiences and create new opportunities for themselves and others.
