Industry exec John Tarnoff muses about the future of the entertainment business and draws connections between the seemingly disparate and chaotic forces that are transforming the content creation landscape before our very eyes. A 30 year veteran of the biz, John started out as a motion picture literary agent, was a studio exec for most of the 80s and early 90s (MGM, Orion, DeLaurentis, Village-Roadshow), launched a tech startup during the 90s “bubble” and wound up for most of the 2000’s at DreamWorks Animation, where he was Head of Show Development. Now consulting at the intersection of the industry, education and digital technology for clients including Carnegie Mellon, The ACME Network and the AMPAS, John is following his passion to better prepare the next generation (and those lagging behind in the current generations) for the business as it’s going to be, not as it has been.
