Steven Spielberg, Harisson Ford, George Lucas On Seesmic

May 17th, 2008 | By | Category: Internet TV, Video

The stars & creators of the latest Indiana Jones movie answered questions today via the microvlogging community Seesmic.

Seesmic founder Loic Le Meur explains:

The original idea was to have journalists around the World ask private questions to the actors and they would answer in private, as a way to give access to them. Instead of a fully private interview, most of the conversation has been public during about two hours but there were also many private videos which were posted and answered by journalists.

This experience illustrates how video on the net and Seesmic can be a fantastic way to get our community closer to celebrities and ask them questions directly. They would not have accepted live and the asynchroneous Seesmic format worked very well. They took many more questions from journalists that they would have in face to face as Seesmic passwords were distributed to journalists around the world.

It’s an interesting experiment, and one that is likely to bring a tremendous amount of awareness to the Seesmic community.
