Reinventing the Cooking Show to a Digital Audience

Monday, March 16
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Driskill Hotel
604 Brazos St


America has become food obsessed. While food is everywhere on TV and the internet, the traditional cooking show is basically dead. But in a sea of chef competitions, food truck races and over-produced schtick, there are an increasing number of filmmakers who are reinventing the cooking show to appeal to a digital audience. These modern day Julia Childs are discovering a platform to tell important stories about where our food comes from and inspire a new generation to get in the kitchen and cook. The panel will talk about their experiences creating digital video series, the challenge of creating high quality video on a budget, how to get creative for funding and sponsorship and where they see the genre moving in the future.
