Download the 2 hour discussion that took place September 4, 2009, from 7pm-9pm, at Rollins College during Panel Series Panel #1: "Producing Large Events in Central Florida." Credit for the recording of this event goes to The Daily City team member Dan Ginader.

Don't have the time to listen to the mp3? Tim Rosenblatt took copious notes and is offering them on his blog.

The panel included:
Chris Blanc | Florida Film Festival
Carole Moreland | Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival
Beth Marshall | Orlando Fringe Festival
James Schoepflin | Orlando Hispanic Film Festival
Jamie Donmoyer | Orlando Puppet Festival
John Carter | Nerdapalooza (500 attended in 2009)
Greg Pollack | BarCamp Orlando
The goal of the panel was to illustrate the first steps of producing a large event using the 2010 Orlando Improv Festival as an example. Mark Baratelli, Editor of The Daily City and producer of this improv festival, moderated the panel.

Really fantastic event, Mark!

I got a lot of great* new ideas and am now really looking forward to the 2010 Orlando International Airport Improv Festival presented by Marriott. (No offense, Holiday Inn.)

And Dan, Mark owes you big time. “Late Nights and Sore Fingers” big time.

*at least I think they’re great, if not “good”

I admire your organizational skills in putting this together. The best ideas are always generated from selfish interests, and I mean that in a good way. Thank you for sharing your process so publicly. My only regret was that the panel never got around to talking about soliciting sponsors, which is where I am with Jazz On Edge right now.

Joseph- It was awesome finally putting a face to a name. Nice to meet you in person finally. A panelist suggested us doing a series of these, and each one cover just one topic involved in producing. For example, one panel could be about sponsorship and funding. I'd like to have one on finding a venue, and so on.

Brian- and yes, Dan did an awesome job with the audio. I am very grateful for his work and his presence there last night. Without him, there'd be no mp3!!!

I wish I could have been there, but I was away on a trip. I will be listening to this audio first chance I get, I promise you that!

And... you're a genius!
