The recent rise of Crowdfunding sites like Indiegogo and Kickstarter has been raising questions from the film making community about how movies should be funded today. This new frontier almost has an air of a wild west as many are uncertain about what crowdfunding can mean for traditional methods of funding and investing in film. The Digital Hollywood conference looks to bring together minds from the entertainment and tech worlds to to try and find a way to navigate this new era of entertainment investment and broadcast.
With one conference in California on October 15 – 18, 2012 at the The Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey Hotel (4375 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey, California) and one in NYC on November 15 – 16, 2012 at McGraw-Hill Building(1221 Avenue of the Americas), the Digital Hollywood conferences create an intense learning environment so that prospective film makers, producers, or artists can get a crash-course on crowdfunding.
The LA conference guides not only people looking to use Crowdfunding to help their own projects, but also serves as a place where people interested in investing in entrainment properties and film can learn.
Similarly, the NYC branch of the conference also focuses on the roles emerging technologies play in the funding of entertainment and the creation of new properties.
While change in the world of entertainment is perpetual, these last few years have created a stark shift in how people consume and create entertainment like never before. It can seem like the whole system is in upheaval, creating an environment better suited for lone filmmakers with a camera and an idea, while other times it can seem like tech giants have their hands around the throats of artists now more than ever.
Digital Hollywood looks to make sense of the new system. A world where Hollywood isn’t a place, but a series of binary transmitted to devices all over the globe.
