May 13, 2011 — 1 Comment

Judging by the number of talks and panels on the topics of Branded Content, Brand Journalism, Branded Non-fiction , Branded Entertainment, Branded Narratives, Brand Storytelling and the like, it would appear that anyone with a brand or product is about to become a publisher, if they aren’t already.

Need to rewind? Catch the previous episode, where Ad Agencies learn What The Future Of (almost) Everything (possibly) Looks Like.

Stay tuned for the final episode when Barrie talks about old dreams, new heroes and why ‘Giving A Damn’ is the new black.

This video is part of the video blog series  “10 Things Agencies Can Learn From SXSW” presented by Barrie Seppings, Creative Director at Ogilvy Sydney.
