Samson recently teamed up with B&H Photo to host a special mobile storytelling discussion and Q&A featuring today’s top content creators. The free event was held in the B&H Event Space at the company’s retail headquarters in New York City and was live streamed on their social media and websites. B&H is the largest non-chain photo and video equipment store in the United States.
The 2-hour event titled Mobile Storytelling: How Smartphones Have Changed the Way We Create Content, featured some of today’s most innovative content creators. Presenters included Shannon Cason, a podcaster and storyteller and Jaime Rivera from Pocketnow.com, a mobile news YouTube channel. B&H’s Brian Anderson, a filmmaker and documentarian, showcased a short film he created using digital cameras and the Samson Go Mic Mobile.
Shannon Cason, host of Homemade Stories Podcast, kicked off the event with his engaging brand of storytelling. Highlights included stories on his humble beginning as a podcaster, how his recording setup has evolved, and sample man on the street audio interviews captured using the Samson Go Mic Mobile wireless system.
Jaime Rivera, founder and author at Pocketnow.com, discussed how mobile technology has liberated content creators to be able to produce professional broadcasts with minimal gear. His discussion also focused on the importance of mobile audio and how it became the strongest source for increasing engagement on his popular YouTube channel.
Brian Anderson, B&H Photo associate and mobile filmmaker/documentarian, shared a short film he created just using a DSLR camera and the Samson Go Mic Mobile wireless system.
To conclude the event, Sean Meagher, Director of Marketing at Samson, provided information on the company’s new, innovative Go Mic Mobile wireless system for smartphones, and then all presenters took questions from attendees. “The B&H Event Space is the perfect platform to showcase our products and add value to the mobile content community with educational discussions. We hope to sponsor more of these events in the near future,” said Meagher.
