Making, Distributing,

What’s the Impact of Digital?

 

Eric B. Stein, Moderator

Founder, Impact Global Media

 

Like many industries, the content distribution landscape is certainly changing due to digital.

We'll cover each of these categories related to Film & TV content business:

 

1. Production: Covering the decreased budgets required

to produce content

 

2. Distribution: The ease by which "anyone" can cost

effectively release globally

 

3. Marketing: How can the distributor and audience

find each other?

 

4. Watching: Consumers continue to view on the

living room "TV", tablets, mobile, etc.

 

The rules are transforming completely.  Not since the television arrived in our living rooms has the media business been transformed so dramatically as it is today, and it’s seemingly generational, fragmented and nascent.
