Joining Larry Jordan this week to celebrate the New Year is:

Philip Hodgetts, CEO of Big Brains for Rent, joins us to look forward at some of the technology we should expect in 2009. Including why the economy may help stifle continuing development of incompatible video formats.

Jonathan Handel, Of Counsel at Troy Gould, talks about 2009 being defined by the potential SAG strike, the impact of the digital transmission switch-over in February, and coming legal trends.
Stacey Parks, CEO, Film Specific, shares her thoughts on the challenges to distribution during this last year. How can we make money on our projects when the economy is in the tank?
