OPENING KEYNOTE: BERNIE SU

Seattle Web Fest is thrilled to announce that the #SWF2017 Keynote will be presented by none other than web series guru, Bernie Su!

When you say the words “web video” or “web series,” most people think the word web is just a delivery platform, but we know the web is so much more. It’s dynamic, social, and interactive. In this presentation, Bernie will first demonstrate how his two Emmy winning interactive series utilized the “web” beyond delivering just a video series, but built out a vast story world for two interactive stories that could only be consumed on the web. Then he’ll demonstrate how his other web series have led to brand sponsorships and sales to traditional television.

Bernie Su is a co-founder of Canvas Media Studios and a two-time Primetime Emmy award-winning web series creator for THE LIZZIE BENNET DIARIES and EMMA APPROVED. His other notable series include VANITY, which was nominated for a Daytime Emmy and SOCIO, which was picked up for development at MTV.

Catch Bernie's insights and wisdom as he kicks off the Seattle Web Fest on Saturday, March 11th at 10am at Northwest Film Forum.  If you're looking for the intel on the future of web series, this is the keynote you don't want to miss.
