The BronzeLens Interactive Summit will tackle new challenges and opportunities for Content Producers, the emergence of different devices – connected TVs, tablets and mobile phones, digital distribution strategies, social networking popularity and other growing trends. Given the rapid pace of innovation and shifting dynamics, the BronzeLens Interactive Summit will address the major digital trends that will shape the entertainment industry over the next few years with the assistance of accomplished thought leader, Asante Bradford, Digital Entertainment Liaison, who helped organize this first time component of the film festival.
According to Bradford, “There will be a shift in the entertainment industry that will see many new platforms emerge. The best way to be ready for these disruptive technologies is to be proactive and start a dialogue”.
The Summit also features in-depth discussions focusing on issues impacting digital technology, social applications, original web content and music distribution in the digital age. As platforms, content, and business models keep accelerating, the BronzeLens Interactive Summit will help determine what is required for Content Creators in the software/digital entertainment industry to thrive. “We’re shaking things up with a new speaker line-up of some of the top digital entertainment executives who are focused on the future of Digital Content & Monetization”, states Bradford.
The Panels will focus on Minority Representation in the Media, Tech & Entertainment Industry, the Social Media Primer – Using Facebook, Twitter and Social Media to Reach Consumers which will give a step-by-step marketing strategy to promote your entertainment product and finally, the Digital Evolution of the Music Business: Strategies for Merging Music Content with New Technologies. Panelists will share potential approaches to mitigate future risks as well as the present role of future technology in the Digital Entertainment Industry. The BronzeLens Interactive Media, Technology & Entertainment Summit will be held on Saturday, November 12, 2011. This will be a breakthrough new addition for the BronzeLens Film Festival.
