Today, the barriers to collaboration and competition across geographies and sectors are lower than ever for the creative industries--movies and television, interactive content, design, and beyond. The marketplace is global and so are the centers of production. Key talent may come from anywhere, and diverse sensibilities help sell the product to wider audiences. What does this mean for Hollywood?

  • How can the historic entertainment capital maintain its edge in creativity and skills?
  • How should production companies and talent navigate the globe in search of opportunity?
  • How do companies find and cultivate the skills they need?
  • How vulnerable is Hollywood's workforce, and how can it strengthen its position?
