A little update here coming out of last year’s Festival, as we’ve got some great panel videos from 2016’s convention for your viewing pleasure. If you missed out on these talks, or just want to experience them again, we’ve got a selection of panels and Q&As up on our YouTube channel now (along with lots of archives from past Bubbles), with full details for each video below. Enjoy!
A special thank you to all our hosts, and panel speakers, and to Green Light Video for producing and editing the footage.
