Sony tries to destroy bandwidth caps everywhere with 100 GB downloads.
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

"The size of a typical movie, depending on the length of the movie, you're talking a 100 GB plus," said Molyneux. "Then you come into variables: how fast is your broadband at home or do you have optical broadband like they do in Houston, Texas, where you can get the movie down pretty quickly.

The Rock is one of those actors who’s always fully committed to his audience. No, he doesn’t try to match the British accents of the rest of the cast. And yeah, he has a little trouble selling the more serious scenes. But he never, ever forgets that we’ve paid good money to be entertained.

I really like the transmedia storytelling idea, but simultaneous transmedia? i'm not so sure...what happens to the unfiltered narration experience? i'm more for the before and after. unless films are actually written with transmedia in mind. simply transmedia-ing existing films won't work. at least not for the core story.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

The folks over at CineFix have a new video with an ambitious premise: the 10 best edits in movie history. It’s a tricky task. Editing is often called “the invisible art,” and with good reason—a great edit, or sequence of edits, engages the viewer so thoroughly that the editor’s touch is concealed, rendering his or her work both seen and unseen.
