Using these latest trends as a springboard, she will discuss various ways producers can monetize their programs via new media in various situations: (i) already-produced programs (library) moving to new media platforms; (ii) mobisodes, webisodes or other programs made specifically for new media; and (iii) productions addressing new media from inception, ie trans-media (cross platform) projects.
