    A special opportunity for CMA members:

    For six years, the Produced By Conference has sold out in Los Angeles. On October 25, the industry’s top forum for producers arrives in New York for one day only. 

    How has digital distribution changed the business plan for independent film? What do you need to know to produce video games?  How do you create and sell content for young audiences? What does it take to get a series greenlit for cable TV? Produced By: New York gathers dozens of the most celebrated names in the entertainment business to answer those and other key questions. Where else will you be able to hear from figures like Harvey Weinstein, James Schamus, Donna Gigliotti, Terence Winter, Bruce Cohen, Mark Gordon, Jenni Konner, Lori McCreary, Stephen Totilo, Tom Fontana, Gary Lucchesi and yes, even Cookie Monster on the same day? 

    Built around sessions like “Window Shopping: Customizing Financial Models in the Era of Hybrid Distribution,” “The Ms. Factor: The Power of Female-Driven Content” and “Tax Credit Financing – The New Essential Element,” Produced By: New York likewise provides opportunities for networking, socializing, and the popular small-group Mentoring Roundtables. If you’re producing entertainment content in New York, you owe it to yourself to be there. 

    Registration is open and sessions are filling up, so REGISTER NOW as an Industry/Affiliate/Partner at producedbyconference.com

    Among all the ways to get your Kids' TV ideas out there, the internet is an intriguing place. There, producers have the ability to see what sticks before taking things to broadcasters- if you even want to go old school, that is. Enter batteryPOP – a new, online platform for children’s media who is ready to work with YOU!

    How did a couple of guys from Nickelodeon go from corporate life in the biz’ to becoming the brains behind one of the more talked about developments for children’s media? How are they different from YouTube? How do they know what’s interesting to kids? What is their business model? And most importantly- how can you pitch your ideas to them?

    The batteryPOP team will be joined by Kristen McGregor, an independent children’s media producer ready to ask the hard-hitting questions you want to know!

    This event is your chance to find out all about the site, their story so far, and how you can get poppin’ with the batteryPOP movement! If you’re a children’s media producer or just want to know more about batteryPOP- this is the event for you!

    Think voice acting for animation sounds out of this world? Then, grab your anti-gravity boots and join us for a fun interactive voiceover workshop and a viewing of the Sprout TV animated series, Astroblast! co-produced by Soup2Nuts and Scholastic

    Our gracious hosts at Soup2Nuts will provide the opportunity for 6-12 attendees to participate in an ensemble read of a scene, recorded by studio engineer, Brad Krieger.  The event will be lead by Astroblast! voice over actress, Gigi Abraham.

    Remember: It’s low pressure in outer space. You don’t need to be a voiceover rock star, just a willing participant up for some playful voiceover exercises and informative discussion.
