Halloween Videoblog Festival 2006 - Call for Videos!!

The Official Videoblog Festival site is now here:

The 2nd Annual Halloween Videoblog Festival is happening on Saturday, October 28th, from 7pm-11pm at the Yahoo! Campus in Los Angeles at 2450 Broadway, Santa Monica, CA 90404 (Free parking available on Colorado Avenue).

We have Yahoo!, TV Guide, Jeff Pulver's (thanks Chris Brogan!!!), ActiveMaps, and Fishman Productions, Ltd. sponsoring. We're also welcoming the "Amanda Across America" project to Los Angeles. There will be folks from NYTimes, LATimes and TechCrunch there as well as cameras galore.

We are asking ALL videobloggers to make scary videos to be screened at the Yahoo Campus. We're also talking to TV Guide about promoting the videos that are screened on their channel. Their goal is to become a bridge between traditional media and new media - and hopefully help the videoblogging community gain exposure en masse. will also be at the helm, interviewing videobloggers and promoting the videos of the Halloween Videoblog Festival.

We'll also be donating some of the proceeds to Node 101. We would like to be true to the spirit of the medium in helping to continue the tradition of teaching others to videoblog and helping to support independent video makers.

Videobloggers who want to attend are invited. So send an email if you'd like to party! If you can't make it - no worries. ALL of it will be online. And the videos will live virtually on

Videobloggers will have one week to make the scariest video ever! So pick up those cameras and scare the crap out of each other. Film your kids, film your cat, film that ghost that just crossed your path.

At this point we're looking for friends to contribute any ideas on how to make this better and blow it out of the park. So send over all outrageous thoughts. So far we have Rick Rey's skills helping to redesign the website. Eric Rey, Lan and Vu Bui and Bonny Pierzina producing video promos and helping out the day of. Any help of the most outrageous kind is MOST welcome. :)

Let's have some scary fun! :)
