What would you do if someone handed you a Shift beer and told you to get up in front of 60+ filmmakers, athletes, writers, podcasters, bloggers and marketing directors to moderate a discussion on emerging media?
You’d stand up. Ask a few good questions. And let it go from there.
Last Friday, Backbone hosted a POV event on Emerging Media.
With so many from our professional community visiting Carbondale for the 5 Point Film Festival (which was A+ Awesome for those wondering), Backbone hosted the POV event as a collective gathering to share information and cross pollinate ideas.
Brand marketers from Polartec, Patagonia, New Belgium, Trimble, Black Diamond, Big Agnes, Horny Toad, Honey Stinger, Aspen Snowmass attended as well as film makers/producers such as Anson Fogel, Dan Ransom, Jimmy Chin , Renan Ozturk, Shannon Ethridge , Dirk Collins, and Matt Hobbs. Throw in talented athletes like Chris Davenport, photographers Corey Rich, Pete McBride and David Clifford, story teller dirtbag Fitz Cahall and well, there was plenty of dynamic thought and energy.
Thanks to all who attended and shared their thoughts and ideas. Thanks to 5 Point – Justin, Julie and Jake for continuing to raise the bar with the film fest and a special shout out to Fitz Cahall for the initial thinking and Michele Cardamone Photography for her wonderful photos (click on Michele’s link to view all photos).
See you out there!
