A Special Evening of Conversation and Insight

with Producer Michael Uslan

 

February 2015 marked a sea change in the global entertainment industry as Chinese monthly box-offices sales overtook U.S. domestic sales for the first time in history. At this pace, China will be the biggest entertainment market in the world by 2020. Hollywood executives are scrambling to stake their claim in the market.   But entrepreneurs, both in China and here at home, who are savvy to the power of new media have their own ideas on the future of the industry. PGA member Michael Uslan and legendary producer (THE DARK KNIGHT, THE LEGO MOVIE, BATMAN VS SUPERMAN) provides an insider's look at the delicate dance Hollywood and China are engaged in – and how the Chinese are revolutionizing the film industry.

Concurrently, the game is changing on US soil.  From the Sony hack to revolutionary production by Amazon, Netflix and other online providers, Hollywood studios are struggling to embrace emerging technology as they fight to retain their dwindling audiences.  Part case study, part cautionary tale, Uslan's experience offers insights into business, legal, and strategic issues at play and provides a critical perspective for all companies looking to remain relevant and competitive in the face of disruptive technology and global competition.
