Content Insider #521 - Visible Flight By Miles Weston I always believe that less government is better but the recent ruling that you don't have to register certain "classes" of drones just doesn't feel right. The idea of anyone, everyone throwing a drone in the air without some ground rules on what they can do, can't do and what type of training they need is a little cause for concern. Somehow it just feels like the new freedom will come back and hurt people who use them to take exciting shots and make a living doing creative work. I could be wrong but still believe that kids who get theirs (ok dad got it for him) should get training in the rules of the road and regulations/requirements. Just hope his playing doesn't impact the M&E industry or business across the board. ...Read More »

Content Insider#520 - Furiouser By Miles Weston There was something for everyone at NAB the way things are moving so rapidly. So we'll break down our discussion over several weeks...it's easier that way. TV is still where most people watch their content they just do it in a bunch of different ways. And thanks to all the online services that are cropping up there is new stuff to watch. That's good news for filmmakers as long as they can establish the right relationships. Yes that's the tough part but not half as tough as being a cable company and watching your "this show at this time" numbers shrink. Fortunately they also own the last 100, last 10 feet to the house so they have to shift their business model. Things are changing so fast you really don't want to go to sleep tonight because when you wake up....BAM!!! ...Read More »

Content Insider #519 - Content Value By Miles Weston I like free stuff as much as anyone and that's certainly true of video content. I even like the idea that someone is willing to underwrite my watching the content. Part of the reason is that I know most of the people who prepare that content for consumption are independent creatives not the "big company" - Netflix, Amazon, Sony, ABC, BBC, you name it. I'm glad TDO was told to go pound sand when he asked for a "little" ransom to give back Orange is the New Black. Hopefully others will say no to the hackers/cybercriminals so they know stealing may be fun but it's no way to make a living. It's time to protect your content...it's too valuable to pay for a second time! ...Read More »

It was 4K that is now being used by almost every filmmaker to do feature length films, documentaries, episodic series and marketing content for use to describe new prroducts, their applications and provide service/support. And the great thing for filmmakers is that the marketplace has opened up beautifully for them with financial opportunities - follow the money - with Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, iTunes, Vimeo and yes the kids favorites YouTube and Facebook. Every content delivery channel - we'll cover the trend/opportunities soon - around the globe is looking for good and insanely great content to offer to their viewers regardless of the screen they're using to educate, inform, entertain themselves! ...Read More »
