Digital V.I.P. Honors Gamut of Next-Generation Storytellers

At the home of super-innovator and entrepreneur Elon Musk (PayPal, Tesla Motos, SpaceX), the Producers Guild held an appropriately unique event honoring a range of accomplishments throughout the world of digital entertainment.

Named the "Digital V.I.P.” (V.I.P. = Visionaries, Innovators, and Producers), "the initiative’s goal is to bring together and honor diverse storytellers from various disciplines. It fosters great conversations, " observes Digital V.I.P. Committee Co-Chair Marc Scarpa.

Producers Guild VP of New Media Chris Thomes emphasized that with such diversity thriving in emerging media, the PGA’s objective is more complex than simply acknowledging the producers of great content. "There are also the visionaries and innovators that influence the storytelling. Whether they be inspiring authors or developers of new social platforms, these facilitators of digital entertainment are critical to giving producers next-generation toolsets and new mindsets to craft the stories of tomorrow,” said Thomes.

With an ambitious and lofty objective, the Digital VIP delivered on its promise for a fun event honoring and inspiring digital leaders. Digital V.I.P. Co-Chair Shawn Gold elaborates, "From TV and movie producers, to Internet pioneers, to the creators of the latest theme park rides, conversations between the various disciplines of storytelling were abundant. Acrobats, performance artists, jugglers, marionettes and the top YouTube performers served as great conversation starters.”

The Producers Guild would like to thank Mr. Musk for the venue and our Digital V.I.P. sponsors Final Draft, Real D, Champagne Devaux, Coca-Cola, Double Cross Vodka, Heineken, Hotel California Tequila, Les Deux Chats, and Poppies and Peonies Florist.
