laurel_portraitBUILDING TV AND FILM COMMUNITIES – Laurel takes us methodically through the various steps in how to grow ‘communities of interest’ around film and TV properties but also building networks around the creative forces that drive these properties and how to make them feel inclusive and involved. She refers to the issues of pushing content at audiences vs making users find, filter and forward content on your behalf and also about the difference between a campaign and a collaborative goal with the users. Laurel touches on crowd-funding using a range of case studies and introduces the seminar with a simple look at how to use Facebook to find some key metrics around brands and keywords and ends on the importance of influencers and building a trusted relationship with your key networks.

Building TV and Film Communities – A presentation by Laurel Papworth, given at the StoryLabs & Screen Australia Film 3.0 labs and digital ignition seminar held in Sydney in late Nov 2012. StoryLab’s Podcasts: Recorded and Produced by Gary P Hayes
