SXSW Interactive 2016
Social-first Video and Legacy Branding
As the number of cord cutters increases, it's imperative that public media continues to meet its audience in the quickly growing digital landscape. At WGBH, a major producer of PBS broadcast content, we're actively working to meet this demand through short-form videos that continue the legacy of storytelling, education, and impact from our popular media brands. In this session, we'll look at examples of how NOVA, FRONTLINE, and ANTIQUES ROADSHOW are continuing to captivate and engage audiences with their own unique content and style through short-form video. We’ll share tips and challenges from our experiences and discuss what’s next as the digital landscape continues to change.
