Hollywood Gets a Social Makeover Hosted by Financial Times

This is why I am all awake and lively at 9am Pacific. There seem to be some technical difficulties, but the panel description sounds really cool and interesting, so I hope the Social Media Week folks can get it all streaming.

Hosted by the Financial Times, a global media partner of Social Media Week, this conversation at The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills will explore how studios and other global media companies are using digital and social media to advance their businesses and reach new audiences, seizing on opportunities and managing challenges posed by new platforms. 

Matthew Garrahan, Los Angeles Correspondent for the FT, will moderate the discussion, and panelists include:

  • Tom Lesinski, President, Paramount Digital Entertainment
  • Jake Zim, Vice President of Digital Marketing, 20th Century Fox
  • Courtney Holt, President, MySpace Music
  • Ross Levinsohn, Managing Partner, Fuse Capital
