Vision Media Talks Digital Awards at Entertainment Evolution Symposium

At the Sept. 21 Entertainment Evolution Symposium (EES) in Los Angeles, Jason Deadrich, CTO of Vision Media, and Evan Ward-Henninger, director of membership for Film Independent, will chart the transformation of physical awards into the digital era, in the session “Future-Proof Your Business: the Transition from Physical to Digital Awards.”

Attendees will learn how the Film Independent Spirit Awards was in need for digital flexibility early on and transformed physical-first workflows into an online awards experience with Vision Media. Like many studios, agencies, and distributors, Film Independent was challenged over the past few years to find tools to support their awards efforts and were able to trust Vision Media for flexible and secure streaming.

The session will cover how Vision Media helped its clients continue to deliver sensitive awards content amidst a backdrop of changing deadlines and dates all with best-in-class secure screening tools. Whether supporting transitions from DVDs to digital screeners, or informing theatrical delivery with its unique theatrical database, Vision Media helps its clients stay ahead of the curve.

“We’ve seen first-hand how being ahead of the game can translate directly into future success for your business. Film Independent was a great example of an organization that saw the opportunity to introduce online elements into a historically physical business,” Deadrich said. “We were excited to be able to build a digital solution for the Film Independent Spirit Awards and its voters. We hope that EES attendees will better understand how to embrace an ever-present shifting web of digital transformation within our industry through our upcoming conversation.”

The Entertainment Evolution Symposium (EES), the annual gathering of industry innovators and thought leaders, all discussing the use of data to effectively blend physical and digital experiences across the global entertainment ecosystem, returns as an in-person event at The Skirball Cultural Center.
