Content Insider #573 - Options
Content Insider #573 - Options
The content delivery folks have finally figured out the obvious. People don't want a big bundle of entertainment options. In fact they don't want options at all! Nope all you want is one option...your content. That could be tough but the more different your tastes from your neighbors, the more they're similar - musicals, comedy, drama, horror, documentary, immersive. The providers who are ahead of the game even know what you want before you do which is why you keep coming back again and again without thinking much about it. And the people in the know are ordering up more content from really good indie filmmakers in record volumes. People may not be able to describe great content but they know it when they see it and increasingly there's more really good stuff to see. Read More

Content Insider #562 - Taking Chances
Content Insider #562 - Taking Chances
I'm still trying to figure out fact from wishful thinking from the HPA Tech Retreat last week in Palm Desert, CA. It's not that easy. Why? We know a lot of EPs, DPs, DITs, editors, audio, creative people who work in the visual storytelling field. They all focus on delivering "the director's intent" to the content consumer even when that director is him or herself. They see things differently. They use the best, most advanced tools available to create something they can only see in their mind(s) and let the viewer interpret the message. Sometimes they bomb. Sometimes they hit the bullseye and people just get it. Most of the time the story works well enough to make them want to do it again. Are you willing to take those types of chances? Read More

Director David F. Sandberg Takes a DIY Approach to Filmmaking on 'Annabelle: Creation' with Blackmagic Design
Director David F. Sandberg has always had a passion for horror and sci-fi films. Though his résumé includes a variety of animation, documentary and short form drama projects, horror and sci-fi have always been the end goal. Sandberg's love of horror and DIY mentality helped spur his 2013 short film "Lights Out," which not only won the Best Director award in the Bloody Cuts Horror Challenge and went on to screen at film festivals around the world, picking up additional awards, but it also became a huge viral hit with more than 20 million views. Soon after "Lights Out," Sandberg was tapped to helm his most recent film, "Annabelle: Creation," a follow-up to 2014's hugely successful "Annabelle." Read More

Media Content and the Web - Meeting Again for the First Time with VR Casting
Until recently, VR video creators have only been able to distribute content by developing their own apps for sharing. This is a very time intensive, tedious journey and it has presented a major barrier for the next generation of digital content pioneers, preventing them from bringing their productions into the world and reaching broad audiences. However, in February, Pixvana, a Seattle-based company that's powering the future of XR storytelling, introduced a new technology that eliminates this barrier for the creators of immersive media, and makes the distribution of VR content feasible for the masses.
