I’m flying out from Copenhagen tomorrow (taking the train from Sweden) and making my way to London and Washington before I land in San Diego around 9 PM (PST). The reason I’m flying out it of course to go to TwitchCon, meet friends, network and have fun. However one of the most important things to me is that I get to be on a panel on Saturday, October 1, 1PM PST, and while I’ve done public speaking in the past I’m still a little nervous, but that will go away as soon as I’m up there. So why should you attend the panel, either in person or at twitch.tv/twitchconbiblethump?
You need to be there!
This panel is all about the behind the stream and what work goes into it. From moderation, hosting, graphic design and so on. I’m not going to hold back and looking at the question that we’ve been given by our moderator there’s some really hard hitting ones that should enlighten a lot of things. Now I don’t know what the others are going to be talking about exactly but I do know what I’m going to talk about.
The business side of things for designers/graphic designers that do Twitch related projects, how I made it to where I am, and on the industry that’s growing behind the streamers and finally about what can be done to take that into the future. So is this only for graphic designers/designers? No! This panel, or at least what I’m going to be talking about is for managers, moderators, streamers and really anyone that works in front of behind the camera. This will be all of my articles and me rolled into a one hour chunk. If you’ve missed the StreamerSpace podcast or the LiveSpace Podcast then this is your solution to all of that.
I’ll tell you right now that I don’t hold back when it comes to these things and I’m not going to hold back when I’m up on that stage. While I can’t say exactly what I’m going to be talking about or the questions, I can say that it’s going to be something that you don’t want to miss.
“This panel presents an opportunity to see and discuss the less visible types of work that go into a successful stream. From graphic design, to chat moderation, to video exporting and highlighting, streaming is a complex ecosystem of labor. Come learn how all the moving parts fit together with contributions from a partnered streamer, a host and e-sports competitor, a casual streamer, a graphic designer, and a GM/moderator.”
As you can understand we’re going to be covering a lot of ground in this panel and I wish that it was more than an hour long. Nonetheless I’m going to bring that fire and I’m going to give you that real talk.
