WordCamp:Developers is looking for a videographer

WordCamp:Developers is looking for a videographer to partner with in documenting the event for publication on the web. Great opportunity for marketing and broad exposure.

WordCamp:Developers is a one day design and development conference in Vancouver, BC, Canada on May 5th, 2011. The conference will have two main tracks – one for developers and one for user experience designers. There are a total of 12 talks plus a keynote at the beginning.

We have gotten numerous requests to document the event on film for posterity so that people who for one reason or another can’t get to Vancovuer can learn something from the session. This is where we need to team up with a video production house. Our wish is to record each session, both the speaker (video and audio) and the actual presentation (screen capture). This will be done for both tracks which run simultaneously. What we are looking for is a video production company that wants to take on this challenge.

This is a non-profit community organized event and we’re trying to make it as accessible as possible we do not have room in our budget for video production. What we can offer instead is ample exposure both on the website, during the event and in the actual finished videos. The videos from the talks will be posted throughout the web, both on YouTube, the WordCamp:Developers website (www.wordcampdevelopers.com) and on WordPress.tv – the official WordPress video hub. These types of videos are hugely popular in the WordPress community and get viewed hundreds of thousands of times, so strategic placement of logos and names will be beneficial. What we propose is for our video production house to place their logos at the beginning and end of each video as well as a link to their services at the end of each video. That way there is significant marketing value in the project even if it is done pro bono.

If this sounds like the kind of project you want to take on please get in touch with us either through our website at www.wordcampdevelopers.com, through email: info [at] wordcampdevelopers.com or by calling Morten directly at 778.886.3697
