The Secret to Creating Breakthrough Digital Content -- Kai Hasson (Co-Founder & Creative Director, Portal A)

Kai Hasson is the Co-Founder and Creative Director for Portal A, a digital studio that specializes in original productions and branded content. In this episode, Kai and I discuss the evolution of branded entertainment over the past decade. Kai shares Portal A’s approach to creating “breakthrough content” and explains that the biggest shift has resulted from talent becoming the driving force for distribution. We also offer a few theories as to why traditional celebrities and athletes are now flocking to social media, from sports starting to emphasize individual superstars rather than the overall team to accelerating media cycles, which put pressure on celebrities to stay relevant between projects. Finally, Kai offers us an inside look at the YouTube Rewind 2018 controversy and predicts that we’ll see more live events tailor-made for content creation.
