Technology is the Great Equalizer: A Conversation About Money, Movies and Marketing

Here is a little excerpt from a conversation and presentation I am doing at this year's Cannes Film Festival.  I'll post the whole piece closer to the date. I hope you'll join me. I would love to see you there.

"The world has changed and every aspect of the film industry has been affected. The inequality filmmakers have been familiar with for generations no longer has a place in today's landscape. Filmmakers are their own gatekeepers from funding to distribution. There are, of course, many factors at play in making that so, but it's the rise in the use of technology that is paving the way for such differences in this new world order and guess what? It's all manageable. Scilla Andreen will share insight into monetizing your movie from funding through distribution."

Friday, May 16, 2014 11:30am-1pm I am presenting at the Cannes Film Festival, NEXT Pavilion, Village International Pantiero, n°210

Talking about the letter "C" in the cab

The other night I was in London hanging out with some high level people in the film industry. They were from Canada and California.  We were in a cab talking about creativity, community, crowd funding, collaboration and the cross media forum we had just attended.  Of course this got me thinking about my favorite letter so I told them about my blog Living on the Letter C and like every time I tell the story we all start speaking in C words.  Its quite fun and every time I am reminded how much I love the letter C. Call me crazy! 

I challenge anyone to find a better letter to live on.
