PressPausePlay: a digital doc
A film about 'fear, hope and digital culture', new documentary PressPausePlay will debut at the South By Southwest Film Festival in Texas in March
The film aims to look at the impact of the digital revolution on the creative world and the opportunities (and threats) it has brought.
"Over the last decade creativity and talent of hundreds of millions of people have been unleashed in an unprecedented way, forever changing human culture. Our film is a humble contribution to the debate," says Charlotta Ribbefjord of the Swedish team behind the film. "PressPausePlay is a documentary film about hope, fear, and digital culture based on interviews with some of the world's most influential creators of the digital era such as Moby, Robyn, Sean Parker and Seth Godin, among others."
Also interviewed in the film are Behance founder Scott Belsky and Bill Drummond of the KLF.
It is directed by David Dworsky and Victor Köhler. "After working in the creative industry for a number of years we got a bit tired of the loud complaints regarding the disappearance of business models due to pirating and continuing profit losses. These subjects had been discussed to death at media panels and in newspapers around the world. We felt that an important part of the story had been lost - the unprecedented cultural impact. Sure, there are lots of industry problems caused by technological innovation but there are also enormous new opportunities for creation," the say.

Looks like people are going to start shining a light on current creativity.
Technological knowledge should not be confused with creativity.
You can train a lab rat to use technology...doesn't make the rat a creative.
Having watched the Norman Hollyn interview for PressPausePlay on youtube, one can very easily conclude that making 'creativity' available to all through technology only serves to make real creative ideas and talent shine through all the dross. If you can be bothered to look that is.
very interesting perspective. I am looking forward to see it.
Equal opportunities come to mind. If you have what it takes, it is much easier now to promote yourself than it was 10 years ago. More great creatives still to come.
