Presented by Dynamic Producer and The Los Angeles Recording School, a division of The Los Angeles Film School
With a new name and new vision for its annual conference, Dynamic Producer is poised to hit the ground running with DYNAMICON 2015, the 14th annual event that will present a new standard in domestic music industry conferences. This year’s conference experience will host thought provoking conversations, interactive networking sessions and best in class performance and showcase events. The purpose is not to just share stories of how someone else made it 5, 10 or even 20 years ago, but to investigate how music businesses and creativity are thriving now and what one can look towards in the future. The goal of this year’s conference is quite simple. “Your network is your net worth,” states Felisha Booker, CEO/Founder.
