While Sundance is definitely known as a place for burgeoning filmmakers to show off their creative chops, elsewhere festivalgoers can hear industry-types discuss hot topics with different moderated panels. In the Digital Center, Cinematical and Weblogs, Inc.'s own Jason Calacanis moderates a discussion about the future of video on the Internet, especially relating to filmmakers. In addition to Jason, other people on the panel include Susan Buice, director of the film "Four Eyed Monsters" along with its associated video podcast, Mika Salmi, founder of Atom Films, Ken Rutkowski of KenRadio, and "SoccerGirl," creator of a wildly popular video podcast. We've split the files up into two chunks, so read on for part one!
