Have you had some success at a music conference?
Could you distill a lesson from that success that you could share as advice to other musicians in under 2 minutes?
I’m doing the opening keynote-style one-hour talk at the South by Southwest Music Conference in three weeks, and I’d like to include you, if so.
The subject is practical advice on how to get the most out of the conference. Similar to this article. (Please read that link first.)
During my talk, I’m going to feature videos of advice from my musician/music-biz friends. I thought it’d be nice to share the exposure, and good for the audience to hear many different opinions.
So if you have some short advice from experience, please:
- Compose your thoughts to deliver it succinctly, between 20 seconds and 2 minutes. The shorter the better. Base it on fact, not opinion. Tell about your specific success at a conference, and the shareable lesson learned from it.
- Record a video of you speaking this advice. (Audio quality is crucial! Avoid room reverb.)
- Upload the video in the highest quality possible to vimeo.com
- Email me the URL to your video when uploaded
I’ll use the best ones in my keynote speech, displayed on the big screen to the audience, with your name and URL in a big font.
Feel free to email me the text of your advice first, if you want feedback before bothering to record and upload a video.
I’ll reply back to every email, to let you know if I can use it or not.
VIDEO DEADLINE: NEXT WEEKEND: Sunday March 7, 2010.
(Of course the earlier the better, so if I can’t use it, there’s time to tell you why, if you want to re-do it.)
