The Rise of the Approachable Expert With the exponential growth of video, voice over and audio have become increasingly important aspects of production. Formerly limited to radio and TV spots, today voice is an integral part of productions of all kinds and formats - from a 15 second YouTube ad, to the audio instructions for e-learning platforms, to the characters behind video games and even the voices behind new AI assistants. But as voice has become more integrated into daily life, there has been a movement toward a more customized, personable tone - more closely resembling a knowledgeable friend than that of a professor. ...Read More »

Content Insider #552 - Breaking the Trend By Miles Weston Every year the Oscar nominated movies get the award for the most illegally downloaded, viewed movies. That is a dubious honor. And they aren't alone because every year people relish in the fact that they get to watch movies and TV shows without paying for them And it's even worse when it comes to the growing volume of indie films - documentaries, long-form, short-form, series, VR - that are regularly pirated (stolen) and shared. If enough people turn away from the screen we'll take all the fun outta stealing them. Doesn't take a lot of work to say no. And if you decide to view the content it's nice to know you're saying thanks to that person even if you don't pay him or her directly. ...Read More »

Content Insider #550 - Content and the Pipe By Miles Weston Everyone wants video content and no one more than the people who make a living streaming the stuff to your device - TV, computer, tablet, smartphone. How big a deal is it? Disney thinks content and access to your device is worth about $52B plus outta the chute. All the service providers think it's worth more, lot more minute after minute so they're beefing up their capacity, bandwidth and toll roads. Depending on where you live it can be free, costly, restricted, censored, blocked. It has opened the door for a lot of creative filmmakers if we can only keep the pipes wide open and the video flowing. ...Read More »
Content Insider #549 - Show Me By Miles Weston We like the most recent news that folks like Google, YouTube and Facebook are adding people to help their systems choose good and bad content. Too many people are putting unwavering faith in the technology that is supposed to make their job easier and their decisions easier. Somehow that doesn't really work for the video content we develop, distribute and view. Too many variables are involved including things like "this is what I feel like right now, right here." Even a couch potato has something going on in his/her mind - even at the subconscious level - or they'd forget to breath. The new standards that are being rolled out will make content even richer, better, more intense but it will still require people who know how to produce great content and who appreciate it. Otherwise it will be a real waste. ...Read More »

Content Insider #539 - Taking It Back By Miles Weston I don't like DRM for content but I really hate the idea that people think all video - mini-series, series, documentary, movie - should be free to watch and enjoy. Folks like to justify stealing (and that's what it is...) because they're taking in from fat-cat networks, studios, SVOD services. No it's simpler than that you are taking money from indie filmmakers, audio/post people and industry tradespeople. People I know and like for their excellent creative talent. Want the stuff free? Watch it with the periodic ad breaks and appreciate that marketers made that entertainment available to you. When you don't pay Netflix, Hulu, Vimeo, Amazon, Sky and others; those companies can't invest in more projects with video creatives so you'll be stuck with cat/dog and stupid guy stuff. Think about the people who do the work. Stealing from filmmakers sucks! ...Read More »

Content Insider #537 - Road Show By Miles Weston Watching really good (and really bad) video content on your smartphone is becoming a big deal...even when the big screen is right in front of you. How big? T-Mobile did a deal with Netflix and people who measure speed said they had the fastest net in town. So AT&T said Ok we'll offer our new customers HBO and the new Ma Bell is waiting for you to call. Verizon is thinking about it. But as telcos know it isn't about unlimited data plans, it's how well they can throttle (manage) what you're viewing. The alternative? Head for the mobile internet. Turn it on and tune in. Free entertainment is a beautiful thing. Stealing content...not so much! ...Read More »
