As digital and connected media drives an abundance of content and ever-evolving formats, platforms and devices, understanding and engaging your audience at an early development stage offers huge advantages to the impact of your project.

Maria Laura Ruggiero – Founder, Storyhackers & Transmedia Storyteller, SeirenFilms
Dan Schoenbrun – Film Outreach Lead, Kickstarter
