Chris Hansen, Co-founder, CEO, BAMM.tv

Chris Hansen, the co-founder of BAMM.TV is a passionate entrepreneur and musician. He and his fellow band members converted their garage rehearsal space into a production studio which then exploded into a content creation mecca for musicians! This week, discover an innovative way to promote and distribute your music.

Bruce Nazarian, The Digital Guy

Bruce Nazarian, The Digital Guy, is a professional musician and producer. So, we thought it would be worthwhile to ask him to take a look at the new BAMM.TV service and give us his take on it. Is this a good deal for musicians? What are the benefits and drawbacks to distributing music outside “the system?” What questions should artists ask as they are evaluating who represents their music? Tune into this week’s show to learn more.

Amanda Fox President/Executive Producer, Spotzen

Making films is difficult and complicated and do any of us like those huge paper production books? Ugh. Spotzen has developed an online, digital system that allows us to streamline communication and coordinate between departments during the filming and post process. (And no paper production books!) Amanda Fox, President and Executive Producer is joining us this week to tell us more about how Spotzen can save us time and aggravation!

J.J. Smith, Editor, Government Video magazine

Government Video Expo returns at the end of November. And, once again, The Buzz is the official podcast of the event. But, what’s happening at GV Expo this year? J.J. Smith, Editor of Government Video Magazine gives us a preview of what to expect as thousands of attendees prepare to swarm into Washington D.C. to scope out the latest technology and share news with industry contacts.
