Videoblogging Week 2007 & SuperHappyVlogHouse

Videoblogging Week 2007

Videoblogging Week 2007 takes place next week (April 1-7) and is a way to promote videoblogging by encouraging people to create and post a daily video, each with a different theme.

Videoblogging week started in 2004 with less than ten videobloggers as a participatory way to raise awareness of videoblogging and welcome new videobloggers. In 2005 and 2006 it grew to include hundreds of videobloggers. In 2007 we hope thousands.

Every year videoblogging week is based on a theme. For example in 2006, it was “vlogging dangerously”. There have been several themes proposed this year such as the “seven deadly sins” for seven days. Past single day themes have included “I love” and “anarchy”

Vloggercon 2006

SuperHappyVlogHouse, an all day “video making extravaganza”, takes place tomorrow at Hat Factory in San Francisco and it is the kickoff event for Videoblogging Week 2007. During the day videobloggers will learn how Creative Commons can be used for video distribution and collaboration. Later in the day there will be a video blogging workshop to create video trailers to help educate people about the use Creative Commons.

For more info, check out the listing.

Come learn how to videoblog, or just collaborate on projects with other vloggers.

4-6pm: Discussion with the Creative Commons Folks on why CC is important in Videoblogging. Tech aspects, legal aspects etc. If more videobloggers put a Creative Commons License at the end of all their videos, awareness grows as our videos move around the web. Independent creators unite!

6-9pm: We’ll all make custom CC trailers that can be used in videos. Schlomo has a stop-animation table, lots of space at Hat Factory, great neighborhood for shooting.

Anyone new can team up with an experienced videoblogger to learn how it’s done.

Lots of video nerds will be available to answer any question you’ve ever had. Bring your computer and camera.

9pm-????: Screenings and party!! Plenty of free booze and food.
