Job Ops In IndieLand (pt5): Introduction To TopSpin

I gave a seminar for our interns a while back on where I saw current job opportunities in Indie Film.  One of our former interns, Chris Stetson, shot and cut it up into digestible morsels for your consumption.  We've been posting them here throughout the year here. If you are a regular reader of this blog then you are probably aware of the hope I have for the Top Spin suite of Creator to Community (aka Direct To Fan) tools to help usher in the Era of the Artist Entrepreneur.  Eddie Burns just utilized their tools for all such work on "Nice Guy Johnny".

By now, I hope that working with the Top Spin suite is second nature to any film school grad and all festival circuit films have integrated their tools into their website.  Granted I still haven't, but I think that is just because I am old and slow to pick up on things.

My first exposure to Top Spin was via David Byrne and Brian Eno, and I touch upon that in the video below.
