Seamus Blackley, game industry veteran and co-creator of the Microsoft Xbox, has been tapped to deliver a keynote address at X-Summit, while YouTube star Corey Vidal will join the “TV on the Internet: Success, Lies and Videotape” panel.
In addition to his work on the Xbox, Blackley headed the video game division of CAA and closed over $500 million in deals. Blackley has collaborated technically with Bill Gates and creatively with Steven Spielberg and has designed, programmed, produced and written music for videogames.
Toronto’s own Corey Vidal has been making videos on YouTube since 2006 and in that time his videos have garnered over 65 million views – a level of success he has parlayed into a full-time job. His company, ApprenticeA Productions, spans 9 YouTube channels and releases dozens of videos a month, making it one of the largest and most-viewed YouTube networks in Canada.
