Cornell Club of Los Angeles – Gamertainment: Gaming Goes Mainstream
November 1, 2016 @ 7:30 pm
Los Angeles, CA
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Jointly Hosted by Cornell in Hollywood and Harvardwood
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 (Harvard AB ’87 – Skybound Entertainment, Greycroft Partners), Larry Kasanoff (Cornell AB ‘81 – Threshold Entertainment), Rick Phillips (Harvard AB ’85 – 20th Century Fox) and Josh Yguado (Harvard AB ’98, MBA ’04 – SGN). Hear their views/predictions on this paradigm shift. The conversation will be moderated by Alex Krivicich (Cornell AB ‘08 – Super Bit Machine).
A wine and cheese reception, starting at 7:30 pm, will precede the panel discussion.
We ask that you submit questions for the panelists to: Nancy Mills at NLM5@cornell.edu.
