32 Emmy-Nominated TV Shows Receive Made-In-Hollywood Honors As State Legislature Considers Passage Of Bill To Increase Film Tax Incentives

EVENT AT 1600 VINE SALUTES LOCALLY-MADE NOMININATED PRODUCT TO SHOW-CASE EXCELLENCE OF FILM CAPITAL WORK

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- At the second annual Made-In-Hollywood Honors celebration of locally created shows that made it to Emmy nomination, thirty-two programs received MIHH accolades, Thursday (Aug. 7) morning.  The tributes were presented at 1600 VINE, the luxury apartment complex which sponsored the honors program, along with the Los Angeles City Council, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, and for the first year, the California Film Commission and FilmL.A. Inc., the state, county and city agencies seeking to return film and television production to the place it started, Hollywood.

Such top TV fare as "Mad Men," "The Big Bang Theory," "Modern Family," "Top Chef" and "Dancing With The Stars" were among acknowledged shows, and the event was filled with passionate calls from the attending public officials and recipients for the California Legislature to pass the upcoming bill, AB 1839, which would create tax incentives at least matching that of those now offered by the state of New York to lure projects which otherwise might well have chosen to "stay home," as Councilman Tom LaBonge stated.  Even with a vastly reduced number of productions that resisted the siren call of other states' and countries' tax rebates, the MIHH honoree list showed that much of the top talent has stayed in Hollywood.

That local achievement, reflected in the MIHH recipients list included three Outstanding Comedy Series shows nominated for Emmys, "Big Bang Theory," "Modern Family" and "Silicon Valley,"  as well as four of the Outstanding Reality-Competition Programs, "Dancing With The Stars," "So You Think You Can Dance," "The Voice" and "Top Chef."  Two of the Outstanding Variety Series, "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Real Time With Bill Maher" had Hollywood pedigrees, as did three of the Outstanding Children's Programs, "Dog With A Blog," "Good Luck Charlie" and "One Last Hug: Three Days at Camp Grief."  Four of the Outstanding Animated Programs, "Bob's Burgers," "Futurama," "South Park," and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Manhattan Project," and three of the Outstanding Short-Format Live Entertainment Programs, "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifinakis" and "The Soup: True Detective," were Hollywood created. Other TV favorites honored were "Jay Leno's Garage" and "The Writer's Room."

The event's host, three-time Oscar nominee and Golden Globes winner Dyan Cannon, stated, "Come on, Assembly and Senate, defend your industry that has brought so much money and a glamorous image to this beautiful state."  Other speakers included Los Angeles City Councilmen Mitch O'Farrell and Tom LaBonge, who presented the City Council proclamations as well as Eve Honthaner, Deputy Director of the California Film Commission, which administers the state's film and TV tax credit program and works to increase motion picture production throughout California; Paul Audley, president of FilmL.A, the official film office of the City and County of Los Angeles, and Leron Gubler,  president of  the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. Sponsors of the MIHH announcement event included Klein Financial Corporation and Icelandic Glacial.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved.

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
