What’s The Future Of Film Look Like?

By Ted Hope

I don’t have that answer and I will leave it to the others (at least for today) as so many are offering options:

Each day I have been experiencing and encountering new ideas and new practices; All of it is pretty damn thrilling. So what if we are racing forward even if we don’t know where we are going. I am loving it.
Like I said, I don’t know, but I do believe that some of these tools will change some things significantly.

That’s Aza Raskin from Mozilla. And this is an attempt to explain Google Wave:

What are the other five tools that will make sure tomorrow does not look like today that I should be posting about?

  • Digg
  • Google Bookmarks
  • email
  • Print

    I posted Coppola's comments too… very similar to what Paul Schrader has said before. While I'm not opposed to new forms of storytelling, my thoughts remain the same:

    As someone who likes to watch strong narrative-based art film, and also striving to make that kind of film, I sure hope the "old world" cinema survives in some form.

    When you look at the greatness achieved in some of the best work from film history, very few works today come close to touching them in terms of their humanity or aesthetic reach. There is good work being done, of course, but greatness remains a rare thing.

    There's an awful lot of talk about new media and augmenting the feature narrative, but frankly, I'd like to see filmmakers focus on making the narrative better itself.

    There's something to be said for letting a work of art, in this case a film, speak for itself.

    Thanks for including me in this round-up. Re Google Wave, I just got my invite, but in order to play with it I need to know a bunch of people on it. And, right now, I don't. So, I'm looking to meet some more people and maybe try to do a Google Wave version of this future of film discussion sometime in the next few weeks.

    Here's how I see DIY film developing in the next 2-3 years:

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.
