)-- SpellCasters Showcase, www.spellcasters.com, takes viewers “out on the floor” for NATPE ’08 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Resort in fabulous Las Vegas, NV. Focusing on Indie producers, SpellCasters gives viewers an inside look at the world of content distribution.
Featuring on-site interviews with industry movers and shakers like Langley Productions (Cops, Street Justice, Jail), The Clever Cleaver Bros (Tailgating with the Clever Cleaver Bros, Kitchen Cut-ups), and American Television Dist. CEO Tommy Habeeb (Cheaters, Art of War, Luck) with special guest MMA superstar Frank Trigg, as well as in-depth dialogue with new faces on the scene like Cilantro Animation’s Salvatore Cavalieri and the Booth brothers of Spooked TV, SpellCasters takes viewers into the heart of the content market, highlighting Independent Producers.
“For anyone who has ever wondered where TV comes from,” explains SpellCasters CEO M. Hep Sylvanus, “This is an inside look at the process. Most folks can’t get into this industry-exclusive conference, and our viewers will get a “sneak peek” at the content coming soon to home and mobile screens. For any emerging indie producers in our audience, this coverage is essential. There’s a lot more to the “deal” than just shooting a show.”
NATPE (National Association of Television Program Executives) is celebrating its 45th year. Established in 1964 as program specific forum to discuss and resolve the challenges faced by local stations and program directors, NATPE has grown from an original attendance of 71 to a high of 20,000+ over the years. Exhibitors were added in 1979, allowing domestic and international content providers unprecedented access to national network as well as regional program executives. NATPE has developed into a definitive technology conference and premiere content market as well as a leading networking opportunity for all.
SpellCasters will also be airing trailers and select special content from the producers featured in coverage of the event. SpellCasters is an internet-based broadcast platform serving the broadband and mobile audience offering zero COD solutions for independent producers.
“SpellCasters is all about giving the indie producer access to the new media audience, and vice versa,” says Sylvanus, “NATPE is an essential part of that strategy. NATPE has embraced the emergence of the “third screen”, and we encourage all producers to explore the opportunities unique to this organization.”
