Hi Everyone - sorry I have been a bit MIA this last week. Catching up now on all of your ideas, questions, and conversations. 

So, where have we been? The Sundance Film Festival... of course! Why? Well, we think Primetime is pretty #awesome and saw this event as an opportunity to introduce it to the entertainment industry. As festival sponsors, we hosted a lounge with free coffee provided by Charming Beard, a caricature artist who sketched festival goers over Blue Jeans, and gave demos from 10am-6pm.  Our team also set up an interview cove for press to do talent interviews throughout the day.

Blue Jeans hosted a Q&A session over Primetime after the students involved with the film, "Most Likely to Succeed," saw it for the first time. 

Additionally, tomorrow if you're around, head to the New Frontier Lounge on Main Street and check out a hollywood great minds panel discussion around collaboration.

What: Making Movies More than Film: Marketing to the Modern Audience Panel 
When: Wednesday, January 28th from 3:00 - 4:30 p.m. MT 
Where: New Frontier in Sundance, Utah 
Who: The panel will be composed of the following participants:

  • Jacob Patrick: Founder/ CEO/ Producer at Amalgamation

  • Daniela Syrovy: President of Clutch PR

Nice pics, Brittany. Looks like Primetime is working great in Utah this week!
It is, and everyone is loving it! I think the industry is excited to have a quick two-way broadcasting tool.

Did you run into any quirks? I know Prime is still in beta testing mode?
@Christiaan - everything went pretty awesome. We had a panel discussion with some PR professionals and film producers yesterday over Primetime. I attended the event over video and it went great! I was brought into the panel discussion to ask my question with ease. If there were any hiccups, only our engineers would have noticed. Here are some photos from the panel! It was great seeing our CCO Stu interview this panel with such ease & really cool getting to know a brand new industry to Blue Jeans.
