A new feature at the Web 2 conference this year will be “Shorts” – I’ll be showing off videos that are emblematic of where our culture’s video grammar seems to be headed. I’ve been writing about the idea of video as cultural grammar off and on here, and I think this year will mark an axis of sorts – the year video was reborn as a native web medium.
To that end we’ve issued a call for submissions. From the submissions page:
Have you seen a video clip or short film that you think is Web 2.0 worthy? We’re looking for fun and telling viral videos (less than 3 minutes in length) to feature at the conference in November. Submit your nominations below. Submitters of the chosen shorts will be thanked from stage.
If you’ve seen something great, I’d be indebted if you could point it out to me. Thanks!
