Heavy Chef 10th April (JHB): The Online Video Revolution

  • OPEN Workspaces 138 West Street Sandton South Africa (map)

Across the globe, millions of scrappy youngsters are gaming, vlogging, twitching, GoPro-ing, drone-ing and screencasting right now, uploading over 300 hours of content to YouTube every. single. frikken. minute. Many corporates are creating their own shows. Crafting their own playlists and driving their own narratives.

We’ve asked the CEO of Special Effects Media, the gregarious and very dapper Danilo Acquisto to please explain just what exactly this new landscape looks like - and importantly, why we should be excited about it. Danilo is the CEO of Special Effects Media, an official YouTube partner company in SA. He’s a presenter on SABC's Afternoon Express, with Jeannie D and Bonnie Mbuli. He’s also a radio show on Good Hope FM on the weekends. Danilo was one of the three inaugural winners of SABC’s Presenter Search - and he happens to be actively involved in various social projects in his spare time. 

This promises to be a fascinating journey into a brave new world. Danilo’s gift is in breaking down complex topics into its bare bones basics - and his presenting style is natural, energetic and approachable. You’ll feel like you’re being presented to by a younger, skinnier, better looking Barry White. What are you waiting for? Book your tickets now.
