Lately I've been fascinated by the way modern technology is changing the way people create and consume art. PressPausePlay is a documentary film about how a digital revolution is currently taking place. It seeks to answer questions like, "Is true talent flooded and drowned in the vast digital ocean of mass culture?" and "Is it cultural democracy or mediocrity?"
The film was recently shot (between August 2009 and January 2011) and contains interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era including Moby, Seth Godin, Sean Parker, Robyn and Behance founder Scott Belsky.
“In the olden days of 30, 40, 50 years ago, people didn’t make things,” Moby says. “You know, like some people would go to photography exhibits, people would go buy records, and there were professional artists. And now everybody’s a photographer, everybody’s a filmmaker, everybody’s a writer, everybody’s a musician.”
You saw the teaser, now here's the official trailer. PressPausePlay will debut at the South By Southwest Film Festival in Texas in March. Can't wait to see this.
