A couple of weeks ago, Ivan and I went to the Montparnasse area in Paris to meet with the team of gaspanik.tv: David, Fred et Julien.
They've built their own studio, where just by changing angles, and moving the furniture around, they create a number of new shows that they stream live on the web everyday. Indeed, they've discovered that editing online content is tiresome, and that live stuff is more fun.
In the backstage is Julien who is a jack-of-all-trades: he's coded all the tools in house (they started only 3 months ago, talk about barriers to entry in this market), and does all the real-time production, as well as coding a few games. David is the guy who hosts the shows every night (the "CEO"), and Fred hosts or co-hosts a number of different shows.
Ivan and I "hijacked" the show for one hour one night, and talked a lot about entrepreneurship, about how to create your own company, etc. Unfortunately, David said that he there was a break-in during the night, and the burglars took a lot of equipment away, including the hard disk with the show. So it never went public. As usual, I always carry my phone, and interviewed David live during his show. This is the only segment left from the show :(
Just before the 19h show, there was a 30 min show on games, hosted by Fred. Here's the backstage:
Finally, if you are interested in working with gaspanik.tv's technology, I'm afraid he's signed an exclusive deal with someone on the market already (not us :).
