Hollywood producer Kim Jackson to deliver IBC Convention Keynote on blockchain
President of Entertainment at SingularDTV Kim Jackson will take to the stage to deliver the IBC Convention Keynote ‘Blockchain: Empowering Content Creators’ on the morning of Friday 14 September.
“In the two years since we founded SingularDTV, I’ve seen blockchain skyrocket into the public consciousness,” said Kim Jackson. “We are one of the first companies to bring transparency to the entertainment industry and I am very honoured that IBC asked me to share our vision with its impressive roster of high-profile global participants. Having a head start on most other blockchain companies means we are building on our experiences of actually putting that vision into practice.”
Open to all IBC2018 attendees, this free-to-attend session will explore the impact blockchain technology is having on the media and entertainment industry by bringing transparency to the way we create, manage and/or distribute entertainment content in the future. Jackson will address how blockchain can be used to manage rights/revenue automatically using smart contracts, and explore the tools and systems required to support creatives in this emerging ecosystem.
Jackson’s impressive career has seen her work with Universal Pictures for Steven Spielberg on Munich, and on Spike Lee’s Inside Man before she founded Streetwise Pictures. Her critically acclaimed production, Blue Caprice, premiered at Sundance and was the opening night film at New Directors/New Films at MoMA. She received a Spirit Award nomination for producing the film.
Jackson co-founded SingularDTV in 2016. She produced Alex Winter’s feature-length documentary Trust Machine: The Story of Blockchain, which has a US theatrical release this fall. She just finished shooting The Happy Worker by Duwayne Dunham, executive-produced by David Lynch, starring Josh Whitehouse, Thomas Haden Church, Colm Meaney and Meagan Holder.
