Interactive Storyteller YONI BLOCH
Yoni Bloch is an Israeli musician and the founder and CEO of Interlude, a technology company that designs, develops, markets, and enables the creation of interactive videos. Through Interlude’s patented technology, Bloch has ushered in a new norm for online storytelling, allowing users to actively engage with online video.
In 2010, Bloch and his band wanted to create a music video their fans would want to play over and over again. Finding no sufficient technology to support their vision, they founded Interlude and developed it themselves.
Interlude has gone on to create interactive videos for Shell, Subaru, Fox TV, ESPN, and others, as well as Bob Dylan’s wildly acclaimed interactive music video for “Like A Rolling Stone.” Backed by investors, Interlude recently launched Treehouse, a self-service platform that allows anyone to design and publish their own interactive videos.
In Israel, Yoni is a successful rock musician and performer with three top-selling records. He has produced and recorded tracks for Israel’s biggest artists, composed music for TV, film, and theater, and served as a judge in the Israeli version of “American Idol.”
Yoni Bloch will be at the Sabes JCC at 4300 Cedar Lake Road, St. Louis Park, MN 55416 at 7:30 on December 3, 2014.
Tickets are $12 in advance and $14 at the door and include a light reception.
