June 2006

iHollywood and Siggraph

The last few months have seen a flurry of announcements from many of the studios, networks and a variety of other content owners about making product available online.

The essence of these announcements is that 2006 has become the year of content, anywhere, anytime and on a device of choice.

These announcements have indicated several different business models, including free, free with embedded commercials, pay per view, subscription services, download to own, download to burn and others.

To explore the implications of this major ramp up in content availability, I will be moderating a panel discussion entitled Covering Your (Digital) Assets at the Digital Media Summit of iHollywood Forum on June 6, 2006 to be held at the Universal Hilton. Los Angeles .

Panelists include:

  • Ian Blaine, thePlatform, Chief Executive Officer
  • Stephen Condon, Entriq, VP of Marketing
  • Douglas Lee, Metro-Goldwin Mayer, Executive Vice President
  • Chris Petrovic, Playboy Entertainment Group, Vice President, Business Development, Digital Media
  • Troy Snyder, Nine Systems, President and Chief Executive Officer
  • Lance Ware, SyncCast, Chief Executive Officer
  • Moderator: Marty Shindler , The Shindler Perspective, Inc.

iHollywood Forum has provided a 10% discount on admission to the two days of events if you type in the word “Marty” in the coupon code when registering, using the link above.

One week later, on June 13, 2006 , I will be moderating a panel discussion entitled IMAX VFX: Design and Execution as a part of the monthly meeting for the Los Angeles Professional Chapter of ACM Siggraph.

Panelists include:

  • Tim Sassoon and Johnathan Banta of Sassoon Film Design discussing Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon 3D;
  • Craig Barron of Matte World Digital discussing their work on MacGillivray Freeman’s Greece : Secrets of the Past;
  • Myles Connolly, Line Producer & Editor on Wired to Win: Surviving the Tour de France.

Following the panel discussion we will screen Tom Hanks presents: Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon 3D in IMAX 3D .

Full details will be posted in the next few days at the LA Siggraph site.

I look forward to greeting you at either or both of these events.
