Join us on Tuesday, February 19th at Tilt Media for Behind the Scenes with The Ben Heck Show. The Ben Heck Show was a successful YouTube show from 2010-2018 that featured weekly electronic builds meant to get people excited about electronics. Many of the builds centered around taking video game consoles and making them portable. Ben Heck and his producer, Max Olmstead will be sharing how they were able to produce, shoot, edit and release his weekly YouTube show from creative concept to edited episode. They will discuss the challenges of breaking down complicated electronic builds for viewers, filming live builds in Ben’s shop, and the post production process. Moderated by Ryan Freng from Backflip, this is a rare opportunity to hear about the inner workings of a weekly web series.
