There’s a media and entertainment gig happening in SF on November 5-6. I’ve been asked to sit on a panel as a speaker so I will definitely be there. Should be good for anyone interested in learning more about the industry and rubbing elbows with Hollywood insiders (or elbows with a Truckee insider like me).
Here’s some of the poop on the subject for those close enough to attend:
