Movies and Television Without Platforms

Uploaded on Wednesday 21 May 2014


The internet and specifically on demand services have begun to change the nature of the film and television industries in terms of how content is created and delivered to the audience. With recent high profile shows such as “House of Cards” going straight to the download queue as opposed to weekly episode screenings on television, and many waiting to consume the latest movies via their internet connected set top boxes rather than the cinema, the audience is going to have much more control in the future on how they consume the content they are seeking to watch. Steve and Ben discuss this brave new world, and how industry inertia may be preventing this from becoming a reality too soon. The guys also discuss the recent Commission of Audit how it affects funding to Screen Australia, the lack of focus in science funding and recommendations for further investments in Big Data.
