DC #537: Kodak’s Jeff Hayzlett Previews 2nd Annual Streamys

It’s that time of the year again web series fans. That’s right the 2nd Annual Streamy Awards are being held this Sunday, April 11 in Los Angeles, and some of our faves like The Bannen Way, Venice’s Crystal Chappell and Buppies’ Tatyana Ali are all up for awards!

On this webtastic episode of the Daytime Confidential Podcast, Luke and Jamey chat with one of the most influential movers and shakers in the fast-growing world of digital video production, Jeff Hayzlett, chief marketing officer for Kodak, which is serving for the second year in a row as the Official Imaging Sponsor of the Streamys.

The personable, cowboy corporate exec talks with the DC boys about why it’s been so important for Kodak to be on the forefront of entertainment consumptions transition from analog to digital. He also reveals that once again he will be tweeting live from the Streamys telecast, as he did during the Oscars, and recalls how cool it was to learn that even the likes of Mr. Bean was following his tweets.

Hayzlett dishes about some of TV and the web’s biggest stars like How I Met Your Mother’s Neil Patrick Harris and One Life to Live grad-turned Castle star Nathan Fillion, whose Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog proved a game changer for web TV in 2008, and also reveals he will be presenting the Streamy Award for Best Ensemble.

Hayzlett also previews Kodak’s red hot digital video cameras, the Zi8 pocket camera and the Kodak Playsport, both of which are serving as the Official Digital Cameras for this year’s Streamys. You’ll definitely want to listen in as he shares how cameras like these are being used by budding, young creatives to make their own web soaps, comedies and talk shows. Can Hayzlett convince someone as technologically challenged as Jamey (who still uses an old-fashioned tape recorder on the red carpet) that the Zi8 is even easy enough for him to use? You’ll have to listen to find out.

Be sure to log on to www.streamys.org to watch the live webcast this Sunday, April 11, 2010 at 5:30 pm PT/8:30 pm ET. To follow Jeff Hayzlett on Twitter go here.

    Two questions for ya. . . 

    1.  When are y’all going to update the Podcast Alley site with the latest podcasts.  It’s six episodes/two weeks behind.  That’s where I get the epsisodes.  I don’t do Itunes.

      Where to Watch the Streamy Awards Online


    You could call them the Oscars of the web, the Emmys of online video, or the Webbys of… webby things with moving images, I guess. Either way, the Streamy Awards, which are happening this Sunday in Los Angeles,  are indisputably the most prestigious awards show of this newteevee world. This year’s show will be hosted by comedian Paul Scheer, feature a Visionary Award for YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley, and offer the rare chance to see people like Lisa Kudrow and Zach Galifianakis share a red carpet with Amir Blumenfeld and the folks from INST MSGS. The show is starting Sunday at 5:30 PM PST / 8:30 PM EDT, and you can watch it live online right here on NewTeeVee (as we are, after all, one of the show’s co-hosts).
