Conference and event videography is our specialty, and that's why Prosper.com (the people-to-people lending marketplace) hired us again this year to cover their annual conference in San Francisco. Videos from Prosper Days 2008 have been posted to Google Video and YouTube. Hi-Resolution Flash videos are also available.

This week I decided to check on the view stats for the Prosper Days 2007 videos we created back in February. I was surprised to find they topped 100,000 combined views in just seven months. That's impressive. Especially considering that each are about an hour in duration. That's a big time investment these days.
Prosper could think of this in terms of thousands more people being able to attend their conference. Numbers like that can make a significant impact on a growing company. Being on popular video sites like YouTube and Google Video, as opposed to hosting the videos themselves, seems to have been the right choice for Prosper. They not only save money, but they benefit by having their video in places that have a large audience.
I have been asked to come back next year to capture Prosper Days 2008. See you there!
My favorite of the bunch is the Town Hall Meeting, where Prosper.com founders Chris Larsen and John Witchel chat with venture capitalist Robert Kagle (Director of eBay) about the challenges of building a successful company in the Web 2.0 era. In the spirit of transparency that drives Prosper's ideology, the bulk of the discussion is focused on their intents for the company and is driven by audience questions. I personally enjoyed the back story of how Prosper originated.
It's worth a view if you're interested in startups and entrepreneurial ventures. It may even motivate you to become a member of Prosper.
We provided video coverage for the Prosper Days User Conference. Think of Prosper.com as an eBay for money. It's a place where people borrow from other people. You can be a lender or a borrower. Lenders make more interest than what they would get at the bank. Borrows save the same way by paying a lower interest rate when borrowing from Prosper lenders.
