This weekend it’s all about entertainment and how to create, produce, and make money on music, films and videos using new technology – and it’s all free.
The Content, Creation and Distribution Expo will be held this Friday, Sept. 16, and Saturday, Sept. 17, in downtown Loomis. Free nonstop entertainment from morning to afternoon and free speakers, panel discussions and workshops will give the do-it yourself video, movie or music producer all the how-tos they’ll need to be successful.
According to expo organizer, Peter Oakes, there are programs by and for musicians, song-writers, scriptwriters and camera operators that tell how to do it. And in order to make money on the finished product, there are programs on writing a business and marketing plan, self-promotion, using social media and networks, and using the internet to sell the end product.
Eric Chun, a musician, producer, artist, writer, and teacher, is the director of the music industry portion of the Expo. He said the Expo “combines digital technology with the business of producing film and music.”
