Markus motto: "Anarchy in Web-TV". His goal: Emancipate Webvideo as an independent media-genre. Before finding his way to Webvideo, he
started his career as a journalist for a small regional newspaper.
Having "served" there for several years, he ventured into the new field of Webvideo, using his nickname "Videopunk". He was head of video-department at DerWesten.de (WAZ Mediagroup). Since April 2010 he is working as a freelancing journalist for different media companies.
Currently he is part of the "Elektrischer Reporter"-Team, a TV-Webvideo-Hybrid for german ZDF about netculture. In addition to this he advises media-agencies and companies in setting up their
Webvideo-strategies and is training young journalists from all over the world on how to use webvideo for their journalistic endeavours.
He is also Co-Founder and Organizer of the Deutsche Webvideotage (German Webvideodays), together with Stefan Evertz. The Webvideotage
(www.webvideotage.de) consists of the Videocamp, a two-day Barcamp specialised on Webvideo and the Deutsche Webvideopreis (German Webvideoaward), honoring the best online-only german-speaking videos.
