On March 15th CreativeFuture and the Creative Rights Caucus hosted an event on Capitol Hill called “Meet the Producers.” The event explored what it really means to be a producer, focusing attention on the process of how movies and television shows actually get made – and how piracy jeopardizes the livelihoods of countless creatives working behind the cameras.

The panel featured producers Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Insidious) Martha De Laurentiis (Hannibal), Franklin Leonard (founder of the Black List), Christine Vachon (Carol, Still Alice, Far from Heaven, Boys Don’t Cry), and was moderated by CreativeFuture CEO Ruth Vitale.

The panelists were introduced by Creative Rights Caucus Co-Chairs Rep. Judy Chu and Rep. Doug Collins.
