RSVP and more info:
All segments in media and entertainment have felt the impact of digital disruption. Audiences use computers, tablets, smartphones, and other devices to access content without time and location constraints. Beyond delivery and consumption however, digital technology will inevitably impact the way entertainment is structured, written and produced. This event explores three concepts that will shape that impact:
Immersion - moving stories from the confines of traditional formats into the real-world
Integration - using Web applications, social media and mobile technology as storytelling tools
Interaction - delivering content in a way that enables participants to take action, make choices, and engage in challenges
Speakers will share the exciting results of crafting leading-edge entertainment experiences and introduce you to the tools and platforms used to build them.
This event is well-suited for independent writers and filmmakers, entertainment executives, and anyone who works or wants to work in the entertainment industry.
Formal RSVP and more info:
We changed the event to a larger room (SCA 112), but not quite as large as I had hoped. You should now be able to make a reservation here: (http://cinema.usc.edu/events/reservation.cfm?id=13594 until the new limit is reached. Act quickly because spots will likely go fast.
Please note that this event begins at 6:30 (the meetup form would not let me schedule before 7pm for some reason).
For those who successfully reserve a spot on the USC event page:
I recommend arriving at 6pm in order to allow time to park and find the room. If you arrive after 6:45, your seat may be given to someone else.
For those who are not able to reserve a spot on the USC event page before it fills again:
Feel free to still show up because some who have reserved spots may end up not attending.
I'm hoping to make this an annual event that showcases a different set of cross-platform stories each time. And I'll make sure to reserve a much bigger theater next time.
See the bottom of event page (http://cinema.usc.edu/events/event.cfm?id=13594) for parking information.
