Recently a group of Film Florida members attended the Produced By Conference in Los Angeles and this year was one of the strongest yet. As the entertainment production industry finds itself at a major turning point, wherein digital studios Netflix, Amazon, etc. are dominating the majors in series work and heading into feature work, throughout the conference there was a clear sense of the changing dynamic and its effects on those who work in the industry.
Our Florida Native Producer’s Club event was held at a new venue, which was directly across from Paramount Studios where Produced By was held. Our focus is less on quantity and more on quality of attendee and we sure had that, including a number of content creators with Florida roots or who have done work in Florida. We appreciate those Film Florida members that participated/sponsored the event as well as our co-host the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Reaching across film, television and new media, the Produced By Conference is an educational forum conducted by
acclaimed producers, including numerous Oscar and Emmy award winners, as well as the next generation of
creative entrepreneurs. It is the only conference specifically created by producers, for producers. Panels featured the biggest movers and shakers in entertainment; exhibits and sessions featured the latest technology; and the weekend was filled with discussions with the top producers and executives in the business.
We want to thank those that participated in the conference through Film Florida. Our sales missions are vital to our overall sales and marketing messages as there is no substitute to having face to face conversations with producers, studio executives and other potential decision makers. We encourage you to take advantage of upcoming opportunities to help continue spreading the message that Florida is open for business and remains interested in recruiting film, television and digital media projects to our state.
