Exciting time at the Produced by Conference in LA!
At a highlight panel talk held by Ted Sarandos of Netflix, he detailed the new metrics for success in the age of digital media. As the industry changes, it will impact everything from advertising revenue to budgets of shows to shooting with and without incentives according to Sarandos. Other panels discussed a new strong push for mid-budget features to fill voids at times overlooked by both big studios and digital platforms.
As always our main message is that Florida is open for business and that of course includes the Emerald Coast!
