THR in forefront of Singapore 3-D confab


The Hollywood Reporter has been named presenting partner of 3DX: 3D Film & Entertainment Technology Festival, the first festival dedicated to stereoscopic 3-D.

The Singapore-based 3DX Festival is scheduled for Nov.19–23.

During the event, Eric Mika, Nielsen Business Media's Entertainment Group vp and THR publisher, will present a 3-D outlook analysis developed by THR Intelligence. Launched this month, THR Intelligence is a customized data analysis service that was created to meet an increased demand for tailored data collection and extrapolation. The service draws upon THR parent company Nielsen to provide quantitative and qualitative data to clients.

"The Hollywood Reporter's THR Intelligence has the unique ability to analyze trends and develop information that will be a powerful resource for the various stakeholders attending 3DX in November," 3DX executive producer Jim Chabin said.

Other keynoters include Fox Filmed Entertainment chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos, DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg and James Cameron. MPAA chairman Dan Glickman will provide an industry update.

The festival is produced by Chabin Partners and hosted by the Media Development Authority of Singapore.
