LOS ANGELES, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Made-In-Hollywood Honors, the three year old program in which Los Angeles City Councilmen for the Hollywood area, Tom LaBonge and Mitch O'Farrell, pay tribute to locally-made film or TV shows nominated for either Emmy or Oscar awards in all production categories, will add to its list of sponsors two of the most engaged organizations working for the return of film-making to the historic film capital. The California Film Commission, which administers the state's film and TV tax credit program and works to increase motion picture production throughout California and FilmL.A., the official film office of the City and County of Los Angeles, will become co-sponsors of the Made-In-Hollywood Honors along with the LA City Council, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and Klein-Financial, managing partner of the luxury apartment complex 1600 VINE, site of the honors presentations and formerly the site of historic Hollywood Brown Derby.
Amy Lemisch, Executive Director of the California Film Commission commented, "The recognition brought by the Made-in-Hollywood Honors supports efforts to retain and grow film and TV production across the state. We are pleased to join in honoring these production teams who chose to shoot in the best place on the planet to produce quality entertainment."
FilmL.A. President Paul Audley observed, "The Made-in-Hollywood program recognizes those who, in choosing to film in Hollywood and surrounding communities, demonstrate that there's still no better place for filmmakers to be than Los Angeles."
Councilmen O'Farrell noted, "There is overwhelming support to bring working class jobs and production back to Los Angeles. I welcome the California Film Commission and FILM LA to the 'Made in Hollywood Honors' as key partners in highlighting our goals of returning production, jobs and revenue not only to Los Angeles, but to the entire state of California."
Councilman LaBonge remarked, "The participation of these two remarkable organizations adds state, county and city endorsement to the MIH Honors' celebration of the home team's accomplishments, a program the Los Angeles City Council and 1600 Vine began three years ago to help restore the glory and the full employment of Southern California's unequalled film-making capabilities, talents and diverse locations."
Klein-Financial chief Robert Klein stated, "1600 VINE is situated on an important part of Hollywood's past, and in serving as permanent site of the Made In Hollywood Honors presentations, we are now a part of its revitalized future. As Hollywood's award-winning luxury apartment leader, located on the Walk of Stars, we are proud to help honor great Hollywood producers who chose to stay home to create their justly nominated productions. We will be further thrilled as these honors hurry the day when all producers come 'Home to Hollywood,' which is our motto."
Qualifying honorees among current Emmy nominees are now being validated, and production companies can email [email protected] to assure that their qualification is included in the August 7 presentation ceremony. Previous MIH honorees include Oscar winners "The Artist" and "Argo" for Best Film and "Frozen" for Best Animated Film and in the Best Movie or Mini-Series category, and last year's Emmy winner, "Behind the Candelabra."

Containers are all the rage among developers and web companies, but they also represent two very substantial benefits to larger organizations. First, they have the potential to dramatically accelerate the application lifecycle from software builds and testing to deployment and upgrades. Second they represent the first truly hybrid-approach to consuming infrastructure, allowing organizations to run the same workloads on any cloud, virtual machine or physical server. Together, they represent a ver...

As operational failure becomes more acceptable to discuss within the software industry, the necessity for holding constructive, actionable postmortems increases. But most of what we know about postmortems from "pop culture" isn't actually relevant for the software systems we work on and within. In his session at DevOps Summit, J. Paul Reed will look at postmortem pitfalls, techniques, and tools you'll be able to take back to your own environment so they will be able to lay the foundations for h...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
