An Historic Hollywood Trades Panel

We’ve attended many Digital Hollywood’s and similar conferences over the years. For the life of us, we cannot remember another time when editorial representatives from all four Hollywood trades participated in the same panel discussion.

The May day confluence will occur tomorrow afternoon at the Ritz-Carlton in Marina del Rey. Moderating “The New Digital Age of the Hollywood Trade Press” will be Rick Markovitz, president of Weissman/Markovitz Communications. And participating:

- Andrew Wallenstein, editor-in-chief, digital, Variety
- Chis Krewson, editor,, The Hollywood Reporter
- Dominic Patten, reporter, Deadline Hollywood
- Joseph Kapsch, deputy managing editor, TheWrap

As if that isn’t mind-bending enough for trade watchers, each and every one of the panelists worked previously at one of their competitors: for Wallenstein, it’s THR; Krewson, Variety; Patten, TheWrap; Kapsch, The Hollywood Reporter. Wednesday’s panel is part of a Digital Hollywood slate co-sponsored by the Entertainment Publicists Professional Society (EPPS). The focus of this particular discussion will be how reps can best get client pitches in front of the right trade people.
