Heard on Campus: Albie Hecht at the Forum

January 30, 2007

"We are moving from the old school of a 'watch' experience in entertainment into this world of engagement. That is the key metric for creating new entertainment experiences for the digital family. Those experiences will take place in the online, broadband world where kids and families live more deeply every day."

Hecht, noted as one of the most influential and powerful people in animation, has created hits, won awards, guided franchises into household names and introduced groundbreaking entertainment for people of all ages.
