Home Seesmic Goes Hollywood

Seesmic Goes Hollywood

Just last week we wondered if video messaging services Seesmic will take over the world. Looks like we won’t have to wait for our answer any longer. A service that was once just just a blip on the radar made a rather huge leap today, a leap that could catapult the service past Twitter. Earlier today, the Hollywood crew members starring in the new film Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull took the time for a cool Q&A on Seesmic!

Q&A On Seesmic

Live for the Q&A, the Guardian’s Jemima Kiss had some questions for at the all-star cast that consisted of Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, George Lucas, Shia Laboeuf, Karen Allen and Cate Blanchett. Some of her thoughts on the ordeal are:

It’s a simple enough idea but incredibly exciting; I just posted a few direct questions to Spielberg and Karen Allen (Marian was always one of my favourite heroines) and it’s quite a buzz watching them reply directly to your own questions.

Simple enough indeed, and the videos are generating massive headlines for Seesmic. Though all of the videos werent posted in realtime, Seesmic CEO Loic Le Meur notes on his blog:

I wish we would have given some notice to our community but we did not know obviously until the last minute if it would happen or not and the production team had requested the videos being posted in private first, then unlocked, which would not have allowed us enough interactivity.

Here are the links for the Seesmic pages of the stars and we’ve also provided a few of the Q&A videos at the bottom of the post.

Will Seesmic Take Off?

There will definitely be benefits from the stars showing up on Seesmic. In fact, the service is already experiencing an influx of replies and user activity. However, we wonder if that’s just due to the appearance of the celebs and how long activity lasts. Whether or not this publicity stunt will catapult Seesmic into the web stardom is the $200,000 question on everyone’s mind. We have our guesses, but first we’d like to hear your thoughts in the comments section!
