accolades were overwhelming for the first State of the Entertainment
Industry Conference, held last week by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce
and presented by Variety, of
which the AICP was a Silver Sponsor. The Chamber had
organized the conference to focus attention on the importance of the industry
to Southern California. “We believe this conference was an opportunity to bring
industry experts together with public officials to discuss what needs to be
done to maintain a healthy entertainment sector,” said Chamber President &
CEO Leron Gubler.
the panelist for the discussion titled, “The Rundown on Ran-Away Production,”
was AICP Vice Chairman Jerry Solomon, of Epoch Films, pictured below, seated closest to the podium. You can
