As I hop out of my rented car at valet parking in front of the Ritz Carlton, Marina del Rey, California, a friend appears at the door, “Jon Lovitz is here! Come on!” It’s day four of Digital Hollywood, an amazing conference co-sponsored by my media psychology MA program alma mater Fielding Graduate University.
Off we go to the Marina Vista room where Lovitz, who is not on the official schedule, has just finished talking about his upcoming project to assist young comics. Lovitz, whom I adore from his days on SNL, is kind enough to pause for a photo with a fan or four.
Sorry you missed the opportunity to sit at the feet of folks from every major studio in Hollywood and more? There’s four more chances in 2014:
Digital Hollywood at CES, Las Vegas, January 6-8
Media Summit New York, March 4-5
Digital Hollywood Spring, Marina del Rey, May 5-8
Digital Hollywood Fall, Marina del Rey, October 20-23
