Digital Age or Digital Revolution, we live in EXPONENTIAL TIMES...the paradigm shifts, while

the digital paradigm is shifting.  Paul Valéry once remarked, "The future is not what it used to be.

We cannot truly control, invent or even predict the future. However, we can hold a vision for it in order

to inspire our efforts and actions.  The future is not what it used to be, nor is it when it used to be.

Negroponte concludes his book by stating that the future is here, now.  Indeed, the future is here, now

and the technological change is ongoing in what could be described as a non-linear continuum."

 

"Media is being consumed across an increasing number of platforms, including TV, the Internet, mobile,

and DVR," said NBC Universal Entertainment co-chairman Ben Silverman. "The next generation of

media will be defined by the players who can capitalize on those trends and deliver integrated,

compelling content across all platforms."

 

The Digital Age and the Internet has brought an end to the way we once knew the print and magazine

business, newspapers, books, travel agencies, the music, tv and film business, and retail marketing

andadvertising.  The Internet is the "super informational highway" that drives the revolution beyond

anything known in history.  Now we know why they made the spelling with a capital "I".

 

The future is now, and our wild west digital film fest is going to take you AFTER THE FUTURE.  We

won't be on the cutting edge, this time we will be the digital sword.  We have cut a trail towards the

new modalities of film distribution

 

Carmel Group senior analyst Jimmy Schaeffler said, "Now the power is slowly shifting to the consumer.

These new digital technologies stretching from DVRs to the Web are turning the business upside-down." 

Although kinks in the model have yet to be resolved, the momentum is undeniably --indeed, relentlessly

forward. "It's very much a youth-driven revolution," Schaeffler says. "Technology makes digital

distribution very desirable, and the forthcoming generations will demand it."
