The Future of The Movie Industry

Wired: George Lucas makes some interesting predictions here about the future of the movie industry...I've taken the liberty of grabbing the more insightful quotes, but read the whole thing - he sounds dead on.....

"The internet and digital distribution will force Hollywood to refocus on smaller projects and it must figure out how to sell its wares online...We need to convince people that creatives need to get paid or they can't create, and we need to short circuit the idea that all the money goes to corporations. This (piracy) is an international problem that involves international governments, but also a cultural shift."

The article also states that the growth of home theaters, new delivery mechanisms and alternative viewing devices like mobile phones will inevitably alter moviemaking. Lucas adds, "The profitable areas are now television and DVD, and the entire paradigm is shifting dramatically...The shift from big-screen epics toward television and mobile devices is also inspiring an aesthetic shift..."

The North Face Jackets came from North Face Canada which do a better job for keeping you both warm and dry. The cotton and wool can attract damp. The cotton next to your skin so that it can absorb your sweat, it also leave you feeling chilled and damp. The top quality synthetic fabric of the North Face Mens Jackets is designed to wick moisture away from your skin and encourage the moisture to travel to the next layer. This is what is known as "breathing". The fabric allows the moisture generated by sweat and exercise to pass through the fabric, and the fabric doesn't trap the moisture and become damp. A natural fabric such as cotton doesn't do this satisfactorily, and will get damp over a period of time. Now that the North Face Down Jackets Womens Sale on our online shop, all are cheap and high quality, you will like it.

It's review time at the office and your boss has asked you to complete a self-assessment - those forms that ask you to rate yourself on your own work performance. Here's where you're going to have to walk the gauntlet like never before.

Here's how to cope:
