Fireside Chat:Rodrigo Garcia, Indigenous Media - Investing Early in Multi-Platform
Monday, June 6, 2016
3:30 PM - 4:00 PM
A brand new edition to Stream Market, the Fireside Chat sessions feature executives behind the companies leading the digital industry.
Oscar, Emmy and Tony award-winning director/producers Jon Avnet (Black Swan, Justified, Fried Green Tomatoes, Risky Business) and Rodrigo Garcia (Albert Nobbs, In Treatment, Big Love, Last Days in the Desert) have had long, successful careers in the feature film and linear television business. But since the launch of the scripted short-form YouTube channel WIGS in 2012 and now next-gen, multi-platform prodco Indigenous Media, the two veterans have also been focusing their attention on new opportunities to create and distribute content. In this fireside chat, Avnet and Garcia will discuss why they took an early gamble on digital, what the future of the entertainment industry looks like, how to monetize it and how/why other networks and production companies need to get on board.
