Editors Note: 
As many of my studio and retailer friends know, I celebrated my 35th year with Allied Vaughn with a trip around South America, culminating in a hike up to Machu Picchu. While I did not find an ancient Inca mystic high up there who would unravel the mysteries of the future of physical and digital media retail, I took some time to reflect and appreciate our company’s evolutionary progress over the last decade while gazing down 9000 foot chasms.

Much like the explorers who came across this lost city in the clouds, Allied Vaughn has pioneered new technologies and strategies to support filmmakers, studios and retailers with a model that insures no title is made unavailable for consumer ownership due to low velocity sales.

I’m proud to be part of this organization and look excitedly at the year to come as MOD continues to be the fastest growing sales channel opportunity for media retail. For those interested, at the end of the hike, I did meet a gent in a long robe and he mentioned that on my death bed, I will achieve total consciousness, so I got that going for me.
