For filmmakers, it makes a fascinating case study, and is another pointer that the BIGGEST evolution we are facing now is the way we tell stories and indeed the stories we choose to tell. The model has changed, and yet we still cling to the old models of 90 minute features designed for theatrical release.
Perhaps we should rethink what we make so that we can better connect with a audience willing to engage? When I wrote about Distrify and Dynamo Player last year, this was my overriding thought – is the web suited for theatrical features or should we reconsider the story format?
