Lennox Seminar Lecture: Innovation Beyond Television and the Rise of Web Television

Monday, February 17 at 7:00pm to 8:30pm

As a part of the Spring 2020 Lennox Course, Speaking Truth to Power, Aymar Jean Christian will present a public lecture on his experience as a scholar and producer of innovative web-based television series, a practice he terms Open TV. Open TV shows how we have left “the network era” far behind and entered the networked era, with the web opening up new possibilities for independent producers, entrepreneurs, and media audiences. His talk will consider how the web brought innovation to television by opening up series development to new producers, fans, and sponsors that had previously been excluded and how online access to distribution provides creative freedom for indie producers, allows for more diverse storytelling from marginalized communities, and introduces new ways of releasing and awarding shows.
