FULL BIO

J. Sibley Law, who goes by “Sib”, is the creator of Rocket’s Tail, a blog about the new media industry.

Law is co-editor of the book Streaming Media Delivery in Higher Education with Professor Charles Wankel. Also, he is the creator of numerous online video series that have accumulated many millions of views on YouTube and also in syndication globally on numerous networks. His own shows include: News for Blondes (2006 & 2007, 2011), Bonnie for President (Official Honoree of the 2007 Webby Awards), The Merry Travelogues (2007), Dishes (2005, 2006), The Happy Weatherman (2006), and The Oligarch Duplicity (2009, 2010), Uncle Vic’s Kitchen (2011), Now Screening (2011), Splatter (2011), PuppetJohnLaw (2012). His latest contribution to the online video industry is TangoDango.com, which began as an online video channel proliferating numerous shows, on a regular schedule. TangoDango saw the re-launch of News for Blondes as well as the development of news shows like Uncle Vic’s Kitchen, Scenes from the Movies (created by Michael Field), and Splatter. Now, the brand is growing into a network of channels each serving niche audiences with inspirational shows such as the acclaimed What You Can Do by Jessica Arinella and Alicia Arinella and Divine Fitness with Sharon Zaubi. As TangoDango began to streamline its content it became clear to Law and his team that another network was necessary and that was the Genesis of Ziz Comedy Network. The network features the work of the LA Comedy Shorts Festival and original series from the festival itself as well as original shows such as Puppet John Law and Scenes from the Movies and Grimm Endings. As the head of these online networks, he has over seen the creation and acquisition of content and secured distribution deals globally. Law got his start producing when he was part of a small team of people who produced the numerous events celebrating the United Nations 50th Commemoration (1995) in San Francisco, its birthplace (photos).

Law serves on the Board of Directors of the International Academy of Web Television (iawtv.org) and co-founded and facilitates (with Annunziata Gianzero) the IAWTV‘s NYC Webseries Writers group, which meets in the offices of Blip.tv, Dailymotion, Digitas, MyDamnChannel, and YouTube. Additionally, he is an active member of the IAWTV serving on the Awards Committee and was chair of the Award Design Sub-Committee, working with Eric Spiegelman (final award was created by sculptor Susan Clinard).

Law’s speaking engagements (as speaker, panelist, or moderator) include: Mobile TV Summit-London (2006), Digital Hollywood-Santa Monica (2007), Mobile Entertainment Summit-Paris (2007), Digital Hollywood-New York (2010), Connecticut Film Festival (2008, 2009, & 2010), CES/IAWTV Education Track (2012), Connecticut Film Festival/FIM (2012).

Law has chaired the Stratford Arts Commission in Stratford, CT. There he founded and produced Festival Stratford (2005-2010), which is still a vibrant festival, today. He co-founded SquareWrights Playwright Center, which has showcased more than 100 new works by emerging playwrights in the region. Additionally, he has served on the boards of the New England Academy of Theatre and the Playwrights’ Center of San Francisco. Law’s stage-work as a director and playwright has been produced on stages from New York City to San Francisco to Valdez, AK, where he was a featured playwright at The Last Frontier Theatre Conference in 2006. His first feature-length play, A Standing Date, opened at the Thomaston Opera House in 2010 to rave reviews.

Additionally, Law has worked with Fortune 500 companies since 2000 in a broad array of areas including: consumer packaged goods, agribusiness, enterprise and business software, pharmaceuticals, digital and traditional media buying, petro-chemicals, and every manner of business on the planet (including addressing the price of Chilean Seaweed in Norway). In this role, he has helped solve problems of margin loss and yield erosion through effective negotiation and strategy.
