In a media landscape where companies like Youtube, Netflix, and Twitch are beginning to overwhelm their traditional media predecessors, what can you expect working in the digital media space versus more long-established production models? This workshop will dive into the constantly evolving and changing landscape of digital media — how algorithms, SVODs, and unique voices are redefining the content we consume. Whether you’re an individual content creator, interested in working for a digital media company, or curious how digital media compares to its more traditional counterparts in network television, we’ll discuss the differences and similarities, as well as how to find stability in a volatile market.
