Filmmaker Brett Gaylor dishes on the latest innovations in web video and the increasing role of video online at latest ReMixology event


With more and more people turning off the TV and opting to sit down in front of the computer to get their video fix, it’s important to think about online video’s place in the future. It wasn’t so long ago that the viewing and creation of online content was relatively unheard of; now it’s a part of every day life: as a tool for broadcasting and disseminating information; for entertainment and collaborative art; for learning how to cut your hair with a flowbee, et cetera.
