Talking about the c.a.m.p., Legend of Heaven, Bedtime Gang and Wynter etc... and where we are building magic forests, alien bases/mazes, Santa's elves workshops... etc... for filming...  and what could be the future of that... with AR portals.
 
Photo essay of Hobbiton movie set. My family and I were guests of Hobbiton in New Zealand recently. This is truly a magical place that's not to be missed if you're in New Zealand.

if you are telling with multiple layers of media... you should watch.  They have done a really good job with this series.
 
What are the most promising business models for better serving artists, audiences, and society?

The world of Hollywood may seem like all glitz and glamor, but at its heart it is a business - a big business - focused on profit and loss statements just as keenly as a car manufacturer. In this 4th episode in our six-part series we'll look at many new business models. As we move from a world of scarcity into abundance, what are the more profitable and sustainable distribution models? What is the future of crowdfunding films? Is this a temporary aberration or a new foundation on which to build an industry?

Participants:
+Sharon Waxman CEO & Editor-in-Chief of TheWrap
+Franklin Leonard Founder & CEO of the Black List
Glen Basner - CEO of FilmNation Entertainment
Mary Jane Skalski - Producer at Next Wednesday Films
Sanjay Sharma - Media Executive & Digital Content Veteran

Fairly certain the mix of the cameras and using the lake at various moments to cheat is going to create something incredible this time around.

When people ask me why the Storycube format difference from the old "transmedia, or why all of our film projects are being built with foyers, lobbies and ancillary AR layering as a necessity... Christopher Nolan's fears and why I am working to reinvent 'the movie' & 'TV show' cubically... Is why. http://uproxx.com/filmdrunk/2014/07/christopher-nolan-writes-op-ed-on-the-death-of-film-and-bleak-future-of-cinema/

Sea Monster.  > Reviewing the different camera tests..  Can't tell you how glad I am that the lake tests went as well as they did... sea monsters and magic are going to be a lot easier ...never mind getting the underwater AR layers stuff right.

As of this fall, 99.999999% of the time just building "flat" content won't work anymore. Anyone who doesn't understand that should be fired.

Story
Tagline
storycuber, ex NBC, ex Sundance Dramatic Competitor, Slamdance, a few awards, a few contracts,... a few... ....blah, blah blah ...got my break in Leaving Las Vegas had a very long journey ...but last ten years have been working on inventing interactive TV & film... taking transmedia to it's next evolution.
Introduction
the guy no one believes in until he's walking from the podium.  You get used to it. (exNBC ex Spelling ex Sundance Dramatic Comp. ex Slamdance etc. etc.  spent the last 10 years figuring out and inventing how interactive film/tv/etc is going to work and reinventing the entertainment model to spread content in IP instead of a model where we restrict it).

My break in production  - Boxing Helena
Break into Acting - as the rapist "Miser" in Leaving Las Vegas
1st Lead - Pariah , one of the first films at Slamdance
1st Professional Theater Lead - Bogosian's subUrbia (Boston premiere) won Eliot Norton Award
1st film as filmmaker- The Autumn Heart accepted for dramatic competition at Sundance.
1st contract as a "creator" NBC
1st...blah blah blah blah blah
Bragging rights
My first line on screen... "I want to ____ you in the ______" worthy of Shakespeare. (Kidding -rent Leaving Las Vegas to see) & Aaron Spelling upon first meeting me after signing me, before even saying hello... "I wish I could do what you do to the human heart on the budgets you've had.".
