You?ve laughed with and at their shows on My Damn Channel. You?ve read about them in Time magazine. You?ve watched them spoof the entire Internet. You?ve witnessed accolades bestowed upon them by the Streamy and Webby Awards. Now catch them in person.
Troy Hitch and Matt Bledsoe created Big Fat Brain in 2004 to inspire quality consumer conversations with entertaining, relevant, and immersive experiences sans traditional marketing messages.
To date, successes include the incredibly awesome You Suck at Photoshop, Greg the Architect and The Tekno Chronicles of Z.
BFB has been nominated for four Streamy Awards, five Webby Awards (winning for both ?How To? and ?Comedy? in 2008), and has been featured and lauded in print and online in the pages of Time Magazine, AdAge, Wired, and - of course and on multiple occasions - Tilzy.TV
We're excited for an in-depth conversation with Troy and Matt where we'll talk about the genesis of You Suck at Photoshop and their other online video projects, the novel ways in which they integrate the audience (eBay auctions and Skype calls were just the beginning), and their super secret project which they'll be unveiling at the event.
