What is the future of independent films and user-generated video now that the online video revolution is in full swing?
World renowned film-director and Oscar winner Francis Ford Coppola shares, in this very old television clip (must be from the 80s), his 1-minute insight into the future of video, once consumer technologies get as good and cheap as they are now. For those of you skeptical about the potential of independent video-makers on the net, this is a short clip not to be missed.
Video unearthed by: Fat girl in Ohio
"To me the great hope is that now these little 8mm video recorders and stuff have come out, some... just people who normally wouldn't make movies are going to be making them, and - you know - suddenly, one day, some little fat girl in Ohio is going to be the new Mozart - you know - and? make a beautiful film with her little father's camera...corder - and for once the so-called professionalism about movies will be destroyed. Forever. And it will really become an art form.
That's my opinion."
If you are instead more well versed into amateur (consumer) video production and aspire to understand whether the online video distribution road has any quality and money potential in its future, I suggest you check out this second short video clip showcasing PodTech Founder and CEO John Furrier of Podtech.net as he gets a 4-minute interview with Sean Maloney, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer for Intel.
