Chris Savage, Wistia CEO, comments: “Traditionally video has all been about short form content, yet when you are trying break barriers you need to experiment which is why we decided to invest in this documentary. We have a big story to tell and felt that serialised content would be a great way to tell a story. I am not sure we could have done it with anything less.  The initial feedback has been great from our premiere in Boston to a packed audience. The audience enjoyed the documentary in its own right which is encouraging for us as we believe this is a very innovative thing to do in our industry.”

So if you want to see how you can turn your iphone and a broom into a b(r)oom-mic or how to manage 15 person crew this will entertain you and show you how to do it.

We enjoyed watching this, hope you do!
