I saw the published agenda for Wine Bloggers Conference 2016 and video content is snubbed once again. There is a class on Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, & Periscope; Periscope is the only video component but what I would term the main stay of wine and video. Periscope is not an easy video media to utilise. I do think Periscope can be relevant and it is an exciting concept.
Wine and video is certainly present on YouTube, Vimeo and Vine and hence this topic not covered truly doesn’t help to frame information for attendees at WBC. Vlogging is an important category on YouTube and I do think it again is a natural extension of the traditional blog.
I have had ‘meet ups’ at each of the past several WBCs and I thought there should be a section on wine and video hence I submitted for a class. Before I was notified my submission wasn’t accepted I saw the agenda and didn’t see any video content workshops. I don’t think I will do a ‘meet up’ at this year’s WBC – video medium should not be just a lobby workshop–it deserve an official slot on the Wine Bloggers Conference agenda.
Many of the past agenda’s are very text specific and I do think this is right conference to talk about layering text with video. Video is a natural extension to traditional text ‘blog’ entries. Wine as I have advocated needs the media that allows for not just informational delivery but for that which only video can give: emotion, colour, voice, and non-verbal cues.
I have completed a lot of Blog entries over 3,000–in the past few years I have often supplemented my writing with video of related subject matter.
I am disappointed that video is once again relegated to no coverage on the agenda of Wine Bloggers Conference. The dynamic nature of video is not explored here and that is a loss for those who might want to venture in the area and to expand their reach.
