The creators of this genre have, over and over, produced entertainment celebrated both on the critical plane as well as embraced by movie audiences worldwide. Digital Hollywood will explore their universe, both from a cinematic perspective as well as from the technical world within which they work.

Somewhere between the reality of "Her" and "The Social Network" resides the cretive explosion in our lifestyle and culture. Digital Hollywood will explore the creativity and tech behind film, video, games, music and internet technologies and how it opens the door to a world of magic.

Speakers from Past Conferences
Tech Tools that Scale the Internet!
Tech tools are revolutionizing the entertainment industry. Apps, social TV and video are exploding. Video to the home is being sliced and diced, accelerated, monetized, syndicated, ad-inserted, pre-rolled and otherwise strategized and analyzed by beancounters 24/7. There will be no rest for the weary and Digital Hollywood will, both live at our conferences as well as online in discussion and tutorials, address the disruption that the technology breeds.
Making Movies & Video
Making movies is a beautiful thing. But sitting behind your own personal movie making Harley is really among one of the great things in life. Inside that universe of tools and technology you can accomplish almost anything. Digital Hollywood will be developing a series of discussions and tutorials with the most creative film makers in the country. The future is here and Digital Hollywood hopes to play a role in bringing it to all our lives.
Making Music & the Social Space
There are no limits to the genius of musical artists. They make our lives worth living. And we are well aware that technology has revolutionized the world of music, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. Digital Hollywood will look at the magic in making music and the tools that help transform music making, live performance, the business of music as well as the distribution process.
