This is one panel I want to attend. Why? Well, these three women are damned smart and if they share a fraction of what they know about producing, distribution, marketing and the state of Hollywood and the independents today, we will all be the wiser.

This is one panel I want to attend. Why? Well, these three women are damned smart and if they share a fraction of what they know about producing, distribution, marketing and the state of Hollywood and the independents today, we will all be the wiser. I'll be showing up on April 11th to watch DreamWorks Animation Chief Marketing Officer Dawn Taubin moderate this panel at Chapman University’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts' 15th Annual Women in Focus Conference.
