Attention as a Currency: With Jesse Brown, Co-Founder of Hudsy
Did you know that everyday we give our attention, dollars, and information to corporate giants, rather than putting this energy, resources and benefits back into our own communities and economies? Come hear how we can fight back locally to regenerate and reconnect our communities by offering a local distribution platform based on integrity that will empower our local artists and facilitate connections. This is Hudsy, we are not imagining this world, but building it.
Jesse is a humanistic storyteller focusing on working with clients and teams that align with his values. He spent the last 15 years honing his crafts in Jackson Hole and NYC and is now back in the Hudson Valley where it all started. Having filmed on mountains in Alaska to the streets of Rwanda to studios in Brooklyn, he specializes in all aspects of cinematography and is very comfortable in any situation he may find himself in. Looking for deeper connection and collaboration, Jesse is now focusing his efforts on the intersection of storytelling and community development. He is the co-founder of Hudsy TV and he strongly believes in the power of storytelling and the collective power we hold as artists.
Hudsy Info : Hudsy is a local storytelling platform designed to CREATE connections. With the Hudsy platform, new avenues are created for digital content to be distributed throughout the community so that these stories no longer fall through the cracks and the revenue stays circulating in the community. Imagine a channel that we could turn to for local special interest stories, films by local professional filmmakers, and new perspectives on our neighbors. Imagine local film production by local filmmakers, produced to meet the needs, interests, and values of our own community. This is Hudsy. We’re not imagining this world, but building it.
