The industry development is fantastic, and challenging.
Netflix has 112 nominations for the 2018 Grammy Awards. That same company cannot participate in the Oscars, but are advertising their series heavily in the cinemas. Influencers have created a whole new scene, and a Chinese Corporation has just acquired the Swedish movie chain SF. We could go on about crowdfunding and the blockchain that facilitate never-before-possible productions.
Where are we heading? How can we support great new stories in this new age?
