More about Fred Seibert
As MTV's first creative director who went on to remake Nickelodeon, run famed animation studio Hannah Barbara, create digital and television animation studio Frederator and found a next generation television network, Next New Networks, Fred is a creative visionary with big insights and a bigger personality.

Fred's career in his words:

Does it seem strange for a former jazz cat to morph into a TV executive, and then turn into a cartoon producer who sets out to pioneer the new frontier of video on the Internet?

Not to me.For me it's all part of a very clear continuum. I'm attracted to community, to places where disenfranchised people find what they love, and find each other and get creative. I'm attracted to heart and soul and humor, and to things that are wild, weird and unpredictable.

I guess you could say I'm attracted to crazy. With any luck I'll have a few more crazy lives to add to this document in the years ahead.

We're looking forward to seeing you there, and meeting and talking with you and other members of the NYC's dynamic online video community.
