Little White Lies have used video to promote the care and attention that goes into making a magazine, while Oh Comely have made witty promos about the arrival of new issues. Intern is in the process of raising money via Kickstarter – they’ve been using video to support that campaign. And Crane.tv is a pure play digital video magazine without a print edition.
UPDATE: Frieze magazine will also take part in the evening.
Together they’ll provide insight into how print and video can combine.
It’ll take place at The Book Club, Shoreditch on Tuesday 23 July, starting at 6.30pm. Tickets are £5 and on sale here.

Standby for news of next Printout, July 23rd.
It’s Printout time again, and with independent food (and drink) magazines on the up it seemed appropriate to take a look at some of our favourites.
So on 28 May we welcome Rosa Park from Cereal, Jon Saxon from Doghouse, Fraser Allen from Hot Rum Cow and Paul Sethi from Special Request to share what makes their take on food/drink special. And if that isn’t a rich enough menu, we also have video contributions from Put A Egg On It (USA) and Mood (Belgium).
It’s all being served up at The Book Club, Leonard Street, London EC2 on Tuesday 28 May. Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7.30pm start.
Tickets are available for £5 here.
Last month’s Printout focused on the business of publishing your own magazine, and turned out to be one of our most popular nights yet. So it’s a pleasure to be able to post this video of the entire discussion. Will Hudson and Bruce Sandell share invaluable insights based on their experiences with It’s Nice That and Rouleur.
Note: video lasts 55 minutes.

We love talking about intelligently edited, lovingly designed, beautifully produced independent magazines at Printout. But how do you sustain a magazine and develop it into a business instead of a sideline? It’s a question that gets asked after every Printout, and one we hope to answer on March 26.
Our panelists Will Hudson, Cathy Olmedillas and Bruce Sandell are responsible for three well-made, long-standing independent magazines. Who better to talk business?
Tickets £5 available here.
The latest Printout took place earlier this week. The evenings have now developed their own structure and routine. Steve and I have learned not to worry about advance ticket sales, we almost always fill the Book Club basement, however late people leave it to book; there’s usually a good mix of familiar faces and newcomers attracted by a particular magazine; and there’s the inevitable last-minute tech problems to do with the projector (this week my laptop died and the remote control didn’t work with the replacement so I spent the evening pressing keys). The speakers deliver their talks, there’s a quick Q&A Session, followed by some beers and talk.
