The future of gaming isn’t gaming, and the future of entertainment isn’t entertainment. The clear borders that once defined these distinct industries and structured the way we’ve thought about them are blurring by the day. Games are becoming motion pictures and movies, TV shows and TV personalities are becoming games like never before. There’s a new paradigm — Gamertainment. Studios now have gaming arms and gaming studios are getting into movie making.
Join us for an intriguing discussion with Jon Goldman AB ’87 (Skybound Entertainment, Greycroft Partners), Ann Hand (Super League Gaming), Larry Kasanoff (Threshold Entertainment), Rick Phillips AB ’85 (Fox), and Josh Yguado AB ’98, MBA ’04 (SGN) and their views/predictions on this paradigm shift. The conversation will be moderated by Alex Krivicich (Super Bit Machine).
A wine and cheese reception, starting at 7:30 pm, will precede the panel discussion.
Attendees will be able to tweet and/or post questions via Facebook, and the moderator will select from these questions for the Q&A portion following the panel discussion.
