 Show the world what you make at Make: Live’s SXSW Maker Show and Tell! Editors from MAKE Magazine, and producers from Maker Faire will be on hand to interview SXSW makers, and talk about their projects. Show us how you made that gorgeous lamp, explain that Arduino project, crank that musical instrument, fold that paper, sling that Angry Birds USB slingshot. Be prepared to explain a bit about your process and why you wanted to make it in the first place. Let us know you’re coming and what you want to bring. RSVP to your stuff, SXSW people! We can’t wait to see what you make.

Joe Christensen Technical Dir Make Magazine/O'Reilly Media

I transfer live physical events into online experiences.

This includes:

* Live video production
* Show planning (engineering, creative, talent)
* Interaction tools (social media)
* Logistics

I generally work in a producer role on behalf of a content owners. I advise on strategy and then implement on their behalf.


Women's Flat Track Roller Derby: Produced 6 weekends of tournament coverage across the country. Inviting fans to purchase coverage and rewarding sponsors with ads and announcer mentions.

O'Reilly Media: Live coverage from all conferences. This includes a newsdesk, live keynotes, and video archives of every session.

Get in touch. I'd love to share stories on how to make things happen in the new space of live internet video.
