NEW PLAYERS IN THE DIGITAL SPACE: ALTERNATIVE DISTRIBUTION PARTNERS, MODELS, & DEALS ...

NEW PLAYERS IN THE DIGITAL SPACE: ALTERNATIVE DISTRIBUTION PARTNERS, MODELS, & DEALS
Amy Westervelt, Head of Acquisitions, Rights Stuff, Netherlands
Amy Westervelt provides an up to the moment summary of the various ways rights holders of children's
film and TV properties can further monetise programmes, find new commissioners/financiers, and/or
reach fresh audiences via the new media space. She will present a “helicopter view” of recent significant
launches and trends among international online, mobile, handheld device/tablet, and other consumer
electronics video platforms, as well as in the cross-platform/ transmedia production and distribution
world. The discussion also distinguishes between various emerging consumer and business models for
licensed programming (including rental, subscription, ad-supported and sell-through/download-to-own),
and details rapidly changing release windows for producers
