“This year’s 100 top, private digital entertainment companies-plus 25 to watch-are bringing quality TV, film, and music to a global audience that’s on the move and hungry for innovation,” reads the headline on Always On this morning.
Fanhattan has been awarded in the 25 ‘Ones To Watch’ in good company with popular startup brands Kickstarter, Behance, and Wattpad. OnHollywood’s 2012 Venture Summit is on today at the Museum of Flying in Santa Monica, California. Tony Perkins awards Fanhattan’s own Laura Tunberg at the event today.
“This year’s winners represent an explosive drive toward device-independent, consumer-focused entertainment. With the unprecedented speed of tablet adoption, the end of the personal, desktop computer may come at some point in the not-too-distant future. The increased screen real estate provided with tablets means serious attention from entertainment product developers, with artists pairing up with technology innovators to make the most of their mobile audiences. Clearly, the digital entertainment pioneers of the 1990s have paved the way for a new breed of entertainment producer, who is harnessing the power of social, mobile, and the Internet to give consumers exactly what they want, when they want it.” – Always On Press release
