Executive producer of the multiple Academy Award-winning Best Picture Crash (2006), Tom currently teaches at UCLA’s Graduate School of Theater, Film and TV, is the past Chairman of the Hollywood Radio and TV Society, and a board member of Mariska Hargitay’s Joyful Heart Foundation.

Just in time for the Sundance Film Festival, this conversation features Tom’s insights on the future of independent filmmaking, the rise of streaming platforms as the preferred form of media consumption since the COVID-19 pandemic, and the shifting business model in the world of film and television. A true visionary and media analyst, Tom also discusses the mergers of long-standing media giants, the type of content that is most attractive to major film studios, and the value of retaining intellectual property by filmmakers in the coming years.
