Mondo.NYC presents a keynote conversation between GRAMMY award-winning producer Albhy Galuten and Steve Richards, founder and CEO of feature film production and finance company Endurance Media, on October 13 at 2:00pm ET. Together the two producers will discuss the vision, dedication and drive needed to produce records that have sold millions of copies, movies that have earned billions at the box office, and technology’s place in both disciplines.

Richards and Galuten will tackle how to strike the right balance in their respective fields as they share some of their experiences while making records that have sold over 100 million copies and films that have generated 10 billion dollars in box office revenue. They will discuss how to stimulate creativity emotionally and technically. Technology has been a stimulus to creativity, but it can also be a hindrance. They’ll ask the important questions: “How do we bring out the best in ourselves and in those we work with? How can we use technology to free ourselves from the drudgery? How can we use it as a stimulus? When is it a hinderance?”

Having worked with artists as varied as the Bee Gees, Eric Clapton, Kenny Rogers, Peter Tosh, Dionne Warwick, Eddie Money, Kenny Loggins, Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand, Rita Coolidge, No Doubt, Jellyfish and Peter Tosh among many others, Galuten brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the conversation, not only as a musician and a producer but as a technology executive and futurist.

Richards has produced over 40 feature films, including blockbuster hits “The Matrix Reloaded,” “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,” “Project X,” “The Book of Eli,” “RocknRolla,” “Unknown” and “Non-Stop.” From 1995 to 2014, Richards presided over Silver Pictures as Co-President and COO. During his tenure, Richards grew the company from a studio-based enterprise to a dynamic boutique production and distribution company, generating over $5 billion in worldwide box office revenues.
