The event will take place Dec. 1-2 at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles, Calif.
Zoradi will bring the opening day of the summit to a close by showcasing several new pieces of 3D footage from Disney’s slate of 17 digital 3-D motion pictures due to be released over the next several years. He joins a growing list of speakers that includes DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, director/producer James Cameron (Avatar) and Fox Sports Television Group chairman and CEO David Hill.

Co-produced by Unicomm LCC and Bob Dowling, former editor in chief and publisher of The Hollywood Reporter, the Summit will assemble around 300 to 400 execs from film, television, video games and other areas of content creation and distribution. The conference aims to educate these industry leaders on various aspects of 3-D technology with live demonstrations of never-before-seen content screened on both cinema and 3-D television systems. Attendees will learn how 3-D relates to business practices and will hear from a dynamic group of leading experts in the field. For more information, go to www.3d-summit.com.
