If you attended the Biola Media Conference at CBS Studios this past weekend, I’d love to hear about your experience. From my perspective, it was really terrific. The quality of speakers, the format, the sponsors – I enjoyed the entire day. We had a great “reality TV” panel, including the producers of “The Dog Whisperer,” “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” “Intervention,” and the winner of the “On the Lot” program created by Steven Spielberg. We also had leaders in the digital media world as well as established producers from traditional media. Phil Vischer of “Veggie Tales” fame told his story, which was powerful, and we ended the day with my interview with Todd Komarnicki – producer of the Will Ferrell Christmas blockbuster “Elf” and the upcoming summer release
“Meet Dave” starring Eddie Murphy.
The professional level of the speakers – coupled with insights from their Christian experience was invaluable to the more than 450 attendees. If you attended, let me know your reactions to the conference, and if you didn’t attend, you should do whatever it takes to get her next year.
I have to admit, my wife Kathleen was the co-director of the conference, along with Peggy Rupple, and they did a remarkable job – making it the best and most informative conference in Biola’s history.
