Pas la peine de cacher l'enthousiasme : le premier épisode de MediaEntity est ultra-prometteur. Cette écriture web est extrêmement réussie et prend tout son sens dans les scènes d'action : fuite et course-poursuite. C'est vif, emporté et haletant. On verra si la technique porte de pareils fruits dans des séquences plus psychologiques, à l'aide de gros plans sur les visages, les traits et les regards.
Karsten Kastelan: "The elusive auteur behind Mulholland Drive and Twin Peaks [opens] up about digital cinema, why he hasn't made a feature film since 2006's Inland Empire and why the future of cool movies is online."

A lot of noise has been made about how the newest iPad has a higher resolution screen than an HD TV. So… get ready to see a lot more people shuffling around nose-deep in their tablets!

Increasingly often, indie films that don’t have the luxury of wide distribution are being released on YouTube and Hulu on-demand the same day they come out in theaters. Some are even going the straight-to-iPhone route: a UK soap opera called Persona was exclusively available for download on smartphones and tablets.
Directors are also shooting entire movies on their phones. In 2011, Hooman Khalili was the first to shoot his feature-length film Olive with a Nokia smartphone. As for iPads, a British guy made a movie called The Silver Fox that claims to be the first one made specifically for iPads. Its description as a “dark, romantic drama” will probably trigger alarm bells in your head though, so check out some stellar iPhone movies at the iPhone Film Festival instead.
Phillips is one of the most thoughtful writers working in this space today: she manages to hit the right balance between pragmatism and vision, between describing the conditions under which transmedia producers work today and spelling out the long term potentials of this still emerging form.

This is where transmedia storytelling principles can come effectively into play. By creating interconnected stories at the foundations of your content, it is possible to offer the audience content and experiences that could cater to many tastes and become the stories – with inherent tools – that your audience will spread to new audiences....
Kevin Holmes: "Felix Mortimer is a former member of Punchdrunk who has gone on to found RETZ with Simon Ryninks, and earlier this year the company performed an experimental version of Shakespeare’s The Tempest called O Brave New World, which took place over six months and across the physical and online worlds" ...
