2013 was a tumultuous year behind the scenes in the film business. In some ways the industry is just waking up to the changes that the Internet has brought about. Some parts of the industry, at least.
One of the most interesting perspectives of the year came from filmmaker Steven Soderberg at the San Francisco Film Society’s annual “State of Cinema” address.
As I wrote then:
The original plan was that this would only be for people in the room, but bootleg copies of the speech started making the rounds on the internet and now the Film Society has released both an official transcript and video.
Couple this with Kevin Spacey’s talk about where television is going, and a vision of the near-future of filmed entertainment emerges.
