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 #486 - 360, VR Everywhere
Content Insider #486 - 360, VR Everywhere
I'd probably enjoy IBC just as much even if it weren't in Amsterdam but I sure wouldn't want to find out. Or maybe the city just looks better through 360/VR glasses because everyone at the convention centre seemed to have the suctioncup lines on their face. But the discussions at IBC - suppliers, studios, networks, filmmakers, production people - always seemed to touch on how quickly VR had come and how much further it had to go. True VR isn't "brand new" because it's been around since 1929 (Link Simulator) and the first headsets were introduced in the 1960s but now we've got affordable cameras to shoot 360 video and defining VR films. Most of the films are short right now - under 30 minutes - but it won't be long before we have a solid feature film. Read More

Content Insider #474 - New Creators
Video distribution has evolved over the years from a couple of channels to millions of channels. It is almost as though we are rapidly transitioning into a video-only world. With billions of cameraphone users stepping forward to ensure we don't miss a moment of the world around us (especially their awesome lives) the people who make their money distributing the stuff are grabbing as much as they can, as quickly as they can just to fill their "inventory." But when the newness wears off people will again become selective as to how they spend their time and want/view content that real filmmakers know how to capture/develop/deliver - great audio, outstanding video. Folks tastes will improve. They have to! Read More
