Theme: Entertaining and Connecting With Audiences

Los Angeles, CA, United States
March 28th, 2013

About this event

TEDxHollywood will focus on entertainment themes including:

• Everyone is a Media Company: Brands and organizations now regularly create and post content to engage audiences and customers.

• Succeeding Outside The System: Learning from mavericks who have carved out successful careers in entertainment using ingenuity, elbow grease, talent, digital media and more.

• Storytelling That Drives Change: Stories that explain, inform and inspire. Stories shed new light on controversial topics, or advocate for a particular point of view.

• Sci-Fi Comes To Life: Great gadgets and technology imagined by Hollywood show what is possible, and what could become reality in the not too distant future.

In addition to leading industry experts and creative minds, TEDxHollywood will host 400 attendees who will be able to rewind time and watch previous TEDTalk videos delivered by creative and technology visionaries who made prognostications about the future of digital content and its impact on the entertainment industry.
