A Report from the Hollywood Reporter/Billboard Conference
By Scott G (The G-Man)
"Forget the name of this thing," one audience
member said of The Hollywood Reporter Billboard Film and
TV Music Conference, "it's really all about the politics
and money it takes to put your music in a flick."
More than one attendee privately agreed.
The underlying truth of that position may explain the
conflicting points made by the more than two dozen speakers.
For example, Glen Ballard was optimistic while maintaining
a healthy dose of pessimism. Mark Mothersbaugh was elated
yet often reliant on quietly humorous sarcasm. Chris Douridas
was excited while being realistic and determined. And
so it went during the two-day event held at the Renaissance
Hotel in Hollywood, with every panel member upbeat about
many aspects of the industry while acknowledging that
there are lots of problems.
