“Jeezz, this thing is slow!” Our son was complaining about downloading a TV show from Hulu. It took about 10 seconds before it began streaming.

Between the sessions at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Media Communications and Entertainment Conference and IBC, it’s obvious that folks aren’t just coming to play (think Field of Dreams).

One of the first videos on the subject, “The Automatic Motorist.” was back in 1911 when filmmaking [...]

IBC Media Coverage … They’re Not Just Coming for You, Honest!

Creative Movies Come from the Heart, Not the Budget

Sure, people like big-budget movies and TV series. They’re interesting, entertaining and give us a chance to see some bleeding-edge stuff that leaves us in awe. But what really leaves a lasting impression is when a project is done that sticks with you weeks, even months, after you’ve seen it. You just know they were [...]

More, Better Content; More Screens… Now Comes Delivery

“You’re gonna get me in trouble AGAIN. You’re the worst shopping partner EVER.” – Ofglen, “The Handmaiden’s Tale,” MGM, 2017 Just recently enjoyed what has become one of my annual “gotta watch” activities–Discovery Channel’s Shark Week.

Customers are Hard to Win, Harder to Keep

Companies are running so fast today developing new (sometimes even great) technology that they often lose sight of most important part of the firm’s growth … the customer. But Intel’s Andy Grove (one of the founders and CEO who passed away last year) and Amazon’s Jeff Bezos (founder, CEO, chairman) share a common focus, even [...]

We’ll Spend Time in the Clouds, Even with the Storms

Before the always-on, always-connected online world, folks would spend summer afternoons lying by a creek staring at the clouds and identifying them – planes, dragons, bunnies, snakes, hawks, and mermaids, anything they could imagine. It was all in the mind of the beholder. According to last year’s IBM survey, three-quarters (72 percent) of C-level executives [...]

Your Future is in Gen Zers’ Hands

“This place… it’s not what we thought it was. It’s not a prison, it’s a test. It all started when we were kids. They’d give us these challenges.” Thomas, “The Maze Runner,” 20th Century Fox, 2014 Recently, I had one of those friendly discussions that never go anywhere – disagreeing about which set of market [...]

Normal people don’t know – or care – about the difference between a CPU (central processing unit) and a GPU (graphic processing unit). They simply want to use their computers to create and view great content. But since I was still in a conference mode following the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) show, I wanted [...]

Data, Message, Person….

Over the past few months, we’ve been working with a graphic designer company to revamp our brand. It’s taken a while to come to fruition but we got there in the end. Sometimes, marketing can be a bit like that too – you have a lovely plan and strategy in place, but for some reason, you don’t [...]
