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

Performance Arts and 3D&360VR Technology Join Forces to Give Viewers a Truly Immersive Experience in
Both Virtual Reality (VR) 360 and 3D have the power to engage audiences in the action and emotion of a film narrative or performance, but combine the two together and you can create a compelling and highly immersive experience that brings the audience directly into the "reality" of the scenes. This is exactly what film producers and directors Fred Beahm, www.fredbeahm.com, and Bogdan Darev, www.bogdandarev.com, have done in "The Cabiri: Anubis", a 3D/360VR film, now showing at the Seattle International Film Festival's (SIFF) VR Zone, www.siff.net, on May 18 through June 10.

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. Sure indie filmmakers still attend the myriad of film festivals hoping for a prize but a check from someone who wants the content for their library is a little more important. 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

Content Insider #568 - Pure Mission
Everyone who attended NAB this year was on a mission. A mission to create the best content, a mission to deliver content to the right audience, a mission to produce great films for device and theatre viewing. We'll start by discussing some of the best solutions for some of the creative people we know - shooters, production/post folks. And there was plenty of new products, new services, new features announced at the show to get a filmmakers motor running this year. And again SuperMeet was fun, insane and informative. Shoot it, produce it, store it. Then? Sell it. It's all good and getting better! Read More

Content Insider #567 - Coming At You
5G is going to be the printing press that the wireless industry has been waiting for since people don't call anymore instead they text and they download huge streams of video content to watch all the time no matter where or what they're doing. Folks want you to believe it will be ready to go this year but better guess is 2020. All we need is to decide which codec we're going to use to make streaming video bandwidth conservative, a "little" content protection, and well a complete build-out of our infrastructure. We know who's going to invest in 5G but who will pay for it...yep. But think how filmmakers will enjoy seeing people buy/rent and enjoy the video storytellers' on-the-go great video entertainment...cool! Read More
