Welcome To The Jetsons Future: The Era Of Media Convergence

by Steve Hoffman

The future of the media and entertainment businesses looks suspiciously like the 25-year cartoon series The Jetsons.

Giant screens inhabit every room in our homes. Smaller screens sit in our hands (in the form of tablets), in our pockets (on our cell phones), in our connected dashboards, and they're moving on to our wrists (and other body parts). We watch "television" and "movies", listen to "radio" and read "newspapers" and magazines" on those screens. How does your content - the great entertainment you create - get to those screens?

In The Jetsons Future, content will be delivered by what we now call broadband internet. We are moving from the era of broadcast to the era of broadband. Oh, and when the delivery system changes, the content that gets delivered nece...

Off Script: 4 unproduced scripts for reading or filming... + bonus material

by Simon Bewick

This is a niche title. If you’re reading this via Look Inside or on Kindle Unlimited and you haven’t shelled out any money yet read this first before you buy. This isn't a novel. It's not a collection of short stories. It's not a film theory book. It's not even a script for a movie you may have seen. Having said what it isn't and why you probably shouldn't buy it what is it? Off Script is a collection of four scripts and some assorted notes and comments around them. It also contains a couple of short stories, some thoughts on turning stories into scripts, as well as a few other odds and ends. The idea behind Off Script is to provide short scripts, each of which can be filmed on a micro-budget, with a limited cast and setting with no special effects requirements. Each of the scripts co...
