This is a "living" research document that was create for the "Creating a Digital Presence” session for the USITT 2012 National Conference in Long Beach CA. The presenters were Jacob Coakley, editor of Stage Directions Magazine, Justin Lang editor of PLSN Magazine and Todd Proffitt Lighting Designer SUNY-Fredonia. Currently this is being adapted into an article for TD&T magazine. As I find new services and tips I will add them.
If you have feedback for this document or have any additions or more examples please email me at Todd.Proffitt@gmail.com
