More and more high-end productions are originating projects for the web. But making money on the web is entirely different from traditional funding methods. Recently, Actors Equity, SAG-AFTRA, and the Metropolitan Opera got into a major tussle about revenue and residuals for streaming events. Legal expert Jonathan Handel, Of Counsel at Troy/Gould in Los Angeles, joins us to explain.

Dror Gill, CTO, Beamr

Dror Gill is the CTO of BeamrVideo, a company that has found a way to reduce the costs associated with storing and transmitting media files by recompressing media files without reducing image quality or introducing artifacts. He joins us this week to explain how this works.
