Thompson Coburn attorneys to speak at Digital Hollywood

May 18, 2018

On Thursday, May 24, two of Thompson Coburn’s partners will be speaking at Digital Hollywood's spring expo, a widely attended event for executives in the film, television, music, digital media, AR/VR and related media industries. Digital Hollywood’s event, which brings in thousands of executives and industry professionals, will run May 22 through May 24.

In the morning, Jim Burger, a partner in the Lobbying & Policy and Intellectual Property practice groups from the firm’s Washington, D.C. office, will be moderating the panel “Indie TV – OTT and Streaming: The Gateway to the New Hollywood of Content to Phones, Tablets, TV and PC.” The presentation will discuss the increased desire to access video content anywhere, on a variety of devices, and the seemingly unlimited audience it can create.

Later that day, Jennifer Post, a partner in the Corporate Finance and Securities practice group from the firm’s Los Angeles office, will be speaking on the panel “ICOs, Financing, Packaging & Investment: From Entertainment & Indie Projects to Technology & Startups,” which will consider project funding through ICOs, and review the current status of venture funding and emerging alternatives.
