The internet's influence on motion pictures is relatively new but already has affected distribution, intellectual property rights, and revenue models. In each of these cases a new technology threatens or displaces established business practices. What changes should one anticipate next? Those of us practicing our craft over the next several decades need to be keenly aware of the technological environment in which we'll be operating. An understanding of what's cutting edge and what's on the drawing board is a valuable asset. How does the internet change the way we make movies? Join Jim Fitzgerald, Founder, Lightspeed eps, and Bruce Sands, formerly with Sony Pictures Entertainment, to discuss how today's emerging internet technologies will help filmmakers run tomorrow's high tech, green productions. Participants will see the latest paperless production tools from Lightspeed.
