Ted, this was an excellent read and a true breath of fresh air because everyone I associate with seem so apathetic to the whole creative process in filmmaking. I don't think a lot of people seem to realize the powerful implications film and media can have on society so to monopolize such a thing seems insane.
Why not give the creative process back to the "global brain" and create production companies that utilize technology in a way that considers all kinds of creative avenues rather than recycled stories?
I think the future will see more collaborative projects that foster a closer connection to our media. Its all an outward reflection of our selves and how we perceive the World so to distort that is irresponsible as a species.
