Content Insider#572 - Saving Creations
It's a poorly kept secret that great films, TV shows, long/short content aren't created/produced by big companies that can somehow live with the fact that some people like to steal rather than pay for their entertainment. Instead it's a freelance business with talented people investing time, money and sweat to produce the visual stories people enjoy. You could entrust your best work for someone else to store, save and protect for you or you can keep it close to you until someone decides they want to rent it to people. In the cloud your stuff is just data where people like to nose around. At your home it's your stuff and probably a little safer from nosey/nasty people. Read More

Content Insider #570 - Awards, Profits
Hollywood lived for their award galas. You know the red carpet, beautiful people, breathtaking dresses, dashing dudes. The awards almost guaranteed good ticket sales. But with more companies focusing on the bottomline and the thousands of new streaming opportunities out there, there's more interest in getting recognition where it counts...in the bank.

Subscribers have an unquenchable thirst for new, original content. Even in the visual content industry it's all about supply and demand. And demand is great! Read More
