Previously we highlighted the LA finalists, so today we’re introducing the NYC group!
My big plans for NYC include parties that celebrate our city and its relationship to the screen – silver screen, big screen, small screen, game screen – you name it! NYC is the home set to so many films, TV Shows, YouTube videos, fashion shows and more – I would like to celebrate (and create!) some of the best moments of NYC captured on screen in a way that can only be done with Logitech Revue and Google TV.
I will include the participation of a mix of people from the worlds of Fashion, Art, TV production, and Technology Development – my network spans through entertainment and includes executives, special effects designers, motion graphics designers, agents, editors, directors, stylists, producers, editors, and talent, but I spend so much time in the tech start-up world that I am constantly surrounded by software developers and engineers (who keep bugging me with “When’s the Logitech party, Mame!? When do we go to the loft?”)!
I will mix high fashion with low art, new technology with old-fashioned get-togethers, and innovation with classics. Think “Sex-in-the-City” meets “Seinfeld” meets “Cash Cab” meets a bunch of my favorite trend-setting technophiles and you get the idea! I will curate and cultivate different themed events – animation, short films, android apps, kids programming, TV trivia, and fashion, to name a few. I take excellent care of my guests and I take pride in my knowledge of hospitality and my improv abilities while hosting on and off-camera.
My big plans for NYC include using Logitech Revue to celebrate our city — and each other — through our common love of the screen. That’s big.
Next is Bill Guyther. Since the beginning of the contest, Bill’s been heavily promoting to become the NY loft host through his social media channels. You can find him on on Twitter, YouTube and his blog.
With the events being built around the roll out of the Logitech Revue with Google TV, I see these as very EXCLUSIVE, by invitation only, everybody wants to be there, type of events. I mean let’s face it, it’s history in the making. The future of television and the Internet will be forever changed with this product. Not only will we have the atmosphere just right with the lighting, music, dancing, beverages, and appetizers (or hors d’oeuvre if you prefer. lol) I see several, hands on, “EXPERIENCE IT” stations available throughout the Loft with spot lights on them where people can come to see and use Logitech Revue. Where they can “EXPERIENCE IT”! To bring it all together (and for those that can’t or don’t get to attend) we will have photographers, videographers and the media there capturing the excitement, energy and responses from the people. This will be used in our daily blogs, Tweets, YouTube and Facebook updates for all to see. To make it all work, each event will be hosted and run to make the guest know that they are the most important part of the success of these events. The goal will be to make each individual feel like the party was just for them, to have a great time and for them to leave with a passion for Revue. I look forward to serving Logitech, Google TV and all the people from NY, and everywhere else they may come from, as the Host With the Most NYC. Prepare for the parties of the decade!
Praneet Kailey comes from Silicon Valley, but has her eyes set on the NYC loft. Her background in PR/marketing and her tech and social media savviness resulted in a final spot for NYC. Check her out on Twitter.
NEW YORK CITY….This world renowned destination city of dreams will witness the Logitech Revue with Google TV dream become their reality. There is no city more deserving for this great first look at the future of TV! As the Logitech New York City ‘Host with the Most’, I plan to do everything within my power to expose this exciting new innovation. I am fortunate to know a lot of incredible movers and shakers. With my strong contacts and industry familiarity, these loft parties will never be just your average event. Technology of this magnitude calls for the ultimate debut, day after day, night after night, and with 10 opportune weeks, NYC will be wowed and in awe indefinitely.
I believe in equality and I have a plan that will suit everyone’s likes and needs one way or another; there will be something for everyone–from a fantasy football Monday night challenge to local talent Tuesdays, salsa dance-offs to game show night, a fashion week rewind and a Ryder Cup party. With great wine, great food and even greater company, this loft will be transformed into a think tank of fun. Combine that with some surprise collaborations with major networks and shocking guest appearances, this loft will be teeming with energy! I am over-flowing with creative ideas for NYC! However, why stop there? This should be shared with the world! Via Logitech webcam, I would stream live feed of each and every candid event so that everyone watching from home could tune in if they cannot join us live in NY.
You see, New York City is widely regarded as a beacon for us all…it is the land of opportunity, bright lights, culture and inspiration! My roots are both in Silicon Valley and in Manhattan, and I have always longed to somehow bridge the gap between the two. I finally have been given that chance. Logitech and Google TV’s media revolution has given me this unique opportunity to pass the torch of innovation from one incredible coast to another. This entertainment transformation and new way of life is exactly what the city of Lady Liberty has to look forward to. I am ready to make a splash in this concrete jungle by introducing NYC to the ultimate Smart TV! …and so it is inevitable, New York City and I will reunite to create a buzz, and the city will be just as excited and inspired as I am…in a New York minute!
What cool events would you like to see go on at the NYC loft?
