Consumer Interactions with Entertainment
Speaker(s): Jason Brush
Creative forms such the music LP, the 1/2 hour sitcom, hour-long dramas, and feature films are evolving into new idioms influenced by innovations in the technologies used to distribute content. This talk will discuss historical interdependencies between content creation and the interfaces of content experience, and what lies in store for artists and audiences as familiar forms are disrupted by new platforms such as the Web, mobile, and IPTV.
