Experience The Brave New World of Media today… or at least on November 17

While we’ve still got a few days left before we’re living in the future envisioned by Aldous Huxley, we do live in a pretty entertaining time where everyone is both a creator and a consumer of media—in all of its various formats. But what does this mean for the world of media? And how is changing the business of media?

Well, the folks behind the annual WebVisions conference may have composed a event that can answer that very question. Meet The Brave New World of Media.

The event—a joint effort among WebVisions, Oregon Film, Portland Creative Conference, and Oregon Creative Industries—will be held Wednesday, November 17 at the Hollywood Theater, beginning at 6:30 PM.

What’s the premise of this discussion?

Digital media, the Internet, games and mobile applications have opened up new channels of distribution for film and television and offer tremendous opportunities for enterprising companies. The traditional model of media production is rapidly changing and it’s more important than ever to develop plans to fully leverage film, video and interactive projects to reach audiences around the country and around the world.

Sounds pretty interesting, right? And wait until you hear who they’ve lined up to chat about this stuff.

Vince Porter, Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Film and Television, and Jeff Geoffray, a gap financing expert at Blue Rider Pictures, will look at the brave new world of meta-media production and share his insights for businesses to evolve and grow in the fast-changing media environment.

And then they’ll have panel discussion featuring Jeff Geoffray, Blue Rider Pictures; Beth Harrington, Beth Harrington Productions; Nando Costa, Superfad; Bruce Wyman, Second Story; Dan White, Pipeworks Software; and Dean McBeth, Wieden + Kennedy.

So if you’re even remotely interested in the future of media, this is an event you won’t want to miss.
