A great read if you are into filmmaking. Especially anyone interested in taking the Convergence Course, which is a mixture of classical linear storytelling and digital, interactive production. The three month course, which I hope to start in September, will be less expensive than the comparable cost of available courses in new journalism and convergence media. Although most of the work is project based – development and practical – I use Eisenstein as a way of covering the basis of film theory.
What advances in tech don’t address is how to keep up with and operate these different technologies and how to use them holistically within the context of traditional good storytelling practice.
