Content Insider #578 - VR Filmwork By Miles Weston Some people think we like 360/VR just because it devours so much storage capacity. Ok that's a good reason but still the good VR stuff is really really good. Not just scare your pants off good but good to experience, enjoy, be immersively entertained, informed. Despite what Musk says we may never experience travel to the outer reaches of space or the depth of the Mariana Trench or climb Mt. Everest but 360/VR can let us experience, really experience these ventures and more. We know because some friends took us there and back. VR is good and it's getting better all of the time. ...Read More »
Content Insider #577 - Talk to Me By Miles Weston Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our techie talk we forget the ROW (rest of the world) doesn't know what we're saying and honestly...don't give a rat's behind! You know real people like Aaron Semmel an EP and his film project producers/directors. They may have heard the specs we're so impressed with but all they care about is...what's it do for me/us? Film people - and film viewers - may tolerate the jargon we're so impressed with but maybe, just maybe, if we did a better job of thinking in terms of what they want/need we could sell more stuff. What a revolutionary idea we need to practice...more. It's just a thought... ...Read More »
Content Insider #576 - New Privacy By Miles Weston Now that GDPR is "in place" and no one trusts their greatest secrets with social media, people are almost to the point where they won't share really personal personal information with anyone there's only one thing to do...watch a movie or TV show on your screen. Good thing you don't have to share that stuff with Netflix, Amazon and the world of streaming services...BAM! they just deliver the content we want to watch. We don't have to tell them anything, they're well almost psychic. Okay not really but they do something the old fashioned services - cable/phone guys - never provided...entertainment, information, news with a smile. Content (and ads) people really want to watch not what models say they should watch. Don't feel sorry for them. You still need their pipes. ...Read More »
Content Insider #575 - She Belongs By Miles Weston If company big wigs can't insist on equality because it's the thing to do maybe shareholders should be selfish. The World Bank just reported equal pay, equal hours and equal participation in the workforce could improve the global economy by $23,620 a person ($160 T). And we'd have added benefits like lower malnutrition and child mortality rates. While we're at it, knock off the excuses for not having more female executives and board members. Treating everyone equal - personally and professionally - might help get things done more quickly...and better. It's worth a shot! ...Read More »

If you don't there may not be a next year. ...Read More »
Content Insider #573 - Options By Miles Weston 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 #569 - Prize Hunt By Miles Weston While creatives got their taste of new gear and technology at NAB the people who get the content from the can to the consumer were busy trying to figure out exactly what people wanted in the way of news/entertainment, how to get it to them and most important...how to make a buck. Pay/appointment TV connections continued to slide as any time, any where, any screen opportunities continued to grow. We're at the point we aren't worrying about AI and autonomous things taking jobs away from folks because it seems all they want to do is watch...something/anything. Serving up the content people want is still a little fun but at the same time it's a business...a very serious business! ...Read More »
Content Insider #568 - Pure Mission By Miles Weston 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 By Miles Weston 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 »

Logging Data By Miles Weston Shooting great content is the rule by which you're measured but being able to find just the right images and segment is even more important and it needs to be fast, accurate and automated ...Read More »
Content Insider #566 - Dollars Count By Miles Weston You've probably been too busy binging Netflix on all of your devices to notice but the entertainment business is becoming a real cluster! Everyone can smell money in the content and everyone wants to be the pipe/stream that delivers it to you. Some want to charge just a few bucks a month for their channel while others want to give it to you free - ok almost free. They're buying each other, jumping over each other, playing dirty tricks on each other and they all know they'll win. TV is exciting again...it's the wild, wild west. ...Read More »
Content Insider #565 - New Heights By Miles Weston Letting you watch your content - movies, TV shows, documentaries, events, activities - on your terms is suddenly in vogue with every channel, studio, outlet developing a streaming channel to capture eyeballs and mindshare. But it isn't as simple as it looks. It's a long, hard climb to get to the top of the viewing stack and it's even more difficult to stay there. Hunting, finding, choosing won't make consumers retreat to their appointment TV but they also won't ditch it entirely. It will just require more work and it's a long way to the top for everyone involved...including the consumer. ...Read More »

Content Insider #562 - Taking Chances By Miles Weston 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 »

Content Insider #561 - Supported Streams By Miles Weston With appointment TV getting whiskers and streamers becoming more important, upfronts this year are going to be interesting. Upfronts? That's where advertisers place their bets on shows. This year there's a new set of tools focused on attribution and outcome...the ability to trace commercials to actual sales. Yes all your online activity enables this. Now advertisers can have proof that their 6-,15-,30- and 60-second commercials work...or not.
