Learning, Testing the Boundaries of New Content Production
Content Insider #496 - VR Progress
VR film work - educational, documentary, entertainment and even marketing - has grown faster than the pioneers expected and it's only getting better and more exciting. All of the tools are getting better, faster, less expensive faster than industry forecasters predicted. Try even the basic (cheap) tools and you'll understand why once you watch it you want more. The good shooters and producers are delivering for the immersion hungry audience and learning that while it's great it doesn't meet everyone's needs the same way. The VR filmmakers are more than just creative in what they deliver, they're creative in how they get from concept to something you can don an HMD and enjoy. They're doing a lot of work-around activity to satisfy an increasingly sophisticated audience. Read More

Content Insider #491 - IBC Wrap
AT&T wants to be a content player. They can read the writing on the wall, the world is going video and they don't want to be just another dumb pipe (they need to add value to what they do). If you're a big house like Times Warner you live in the cloud for your production and your distribution. If you're an independent filmmaker you keep your content in the storage device next to your desk and maybe use the cloud for 2nd or 3rd backup and work with the content distributors to monitize your material in their cloud. According to folks at IBC this year is that the challenge for everyone in the industry is to effectively reach the consuming public without overwhelming them. Remember teens millenials and Gen Zers have short attention spans. Read More

Content Insider #489 - OTT, Crafty Strength
More devices, more screens means more opportunities for content owners to move more entertainment material to consumers. I don't have to tell you that the world of content is going OTT to folks by-passing traditional channels. Cable companies and networks are struggling to adjust to the new (young) creative viewer while still deliver predictable news/information/entertainment to older folks...and trying to make money on all of them for their advertisers and their bosses. It's tough to jump to the next level of media & entertainment when you're uncertain how you're going to turn a profit. But my kids could care less about the delivery folks profit as long as they get their content when they want it, where they want it, how they want it. Read More
