Mobile Storytelling: How Smartphones Have Changed the Way We Create Content, Sponsored by Samson
Featuring: Jamie Rivera, Shannon Cason, and Tim Poole.
Since the introduction of the iPhone in 2007, smartphones have become an important tool for content creators. With each iteration of smartphones, camera technology has become more advanced, apps more powerful and the ability to create and share audio and/or visual stories has become easier.
Smartphones are now mobile production studios that provide creators a platform to create, edit and distribute content. Whether you’re a podcaster, vlogger, filmmaker or journalist, smartphones allow you to record anywhere, immediately.
In this session, we’ll dive into the world of smartphones and storytelling, whether you’re looking to capture something that is happening around you, creating engaging content to inspire or looking to make a social impact. Specifically, we’ll take a look at three different storytelling techniques and how they have evolved, as well as emerging trends in storytelling with smartphones. We’ll have three accomplished professionals to speak about how smartphones and mobile devices have changed how they work: Shannon Cason, a podcaster and storyteller; Jaime Rivera from Pocketnow, a mobile news YouTube channel; and Tim Pool an American journalist who utilizes mobile devices and live streaming as part of his reporting. Additionally, Sean Meagher, Director of Marketing at Samson, will provide information on products from Samson designed to improve audio for production on mobile devices.
