Pixelodeon is an annual independent video festival recognizing innovation, inspiration, and community in global online video. It’s happening at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles on June 9-10, 2007 and we are thrilled to be among the hand-selected, featured videos.
Here’s what this event is about, straight from Pixelodeon: “Pixelodeon is an annual independent video festival recognizing innovation, inspiration, and community in global online video. This is our inaugural year! Over 300 videos, four keynote speakers, two dozen curators, and several hundred people interested in independent media will get together in one weekend to celebrate the diversity and talent of online video content. If you want to see what’s happening online and meet the people who are making it happen, this is the place to be.”
Doing a show like Beach Walks with Rox delivers so many unintended consequences. In our case, they have been universally positive. We continue to make connections and receive recognition from the most unexpected and amazing people and places! Here’s a recent viewer comment we received a few days ago:
bq. I work as a crisis management consultant in Washington, D.C. — in other words, the polar opposite of BeachWalks in both geography and stress level. The show has become a daily breath of fresh air and calm feeling. You’ll be pleased to hear that I’m passing the link around to some friends and colleagues inside the Beltway here. Most are as pleasantly impressed as I am — so you’re gaining a small cult following in DC.

So many wonderful people are doing so much work on this event. I hope you will consider attending. It will open your eyes to an entirely new world that is alive and well, yet still not in the mainstream of media and communication. We are also pulling together a Best Practices document for content aggregators, so please email me if you are interested in that.
