Hollywood and Silicon Valley are two of California's signature industries, and in an era of rapid technological innovation, they're converging, and occasionally colliding, in a variety of interesting ways. As these two industries feed each other's growth and clash over contested areas such as copyright law, it raises the question: how will the digital age transform the way we make, format and share stories?
In this half day summit, The Atlantic and the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism will explore the merging of two of the nation's most vibrant and globally influential industries, and how the new dynamics will redefine the entertainment industry across television, digital video, movies and music.
Since 1857, The Atlantic has helped shape the national debate on the most critical and contentious issues of our times, from politics, business, and the economy, to technology, arts, and culture. Through in-depth analysis in the monthly print magazine, complemented by up-to-the-minute insights delivered throughout the day on theatlantic.com, The Atlantic provides the nation’s thought leaders and professional class with forward-looking, fresh perspectives that provoke and challenge, define and affect the lives we’re living today, and give shape to the lives we will live tomorrow.
