Innovations in technology makes us creative. In the documentary PressPausePlay Moby states: ‘Everybody is a photographer, everybody is a filmmaker, everybody is a writer, everybody is a musician..’ We are living in an era of immense creatieve potential and this is exciting. Our imagination is the limit.
PressPausePlay is a documentary film by creative agency House of Radon based in Stockholm, Sweden. The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities. But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out? The documentary film contains interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era. Watch it here:
Renee Viterstedt, part of the team behind PressPausePlay visited the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. She wrote a blogpost about the documentary Side by Side. This film is produced by Keanu Reeves and directed by Chris Kenneally. It contains interviews with some Hollywood heavyweights such as Steven Soderbergh, Martin Scorsese, David Fincher and George Lucas. Viterstedt: ‘While our documentary focused on how digital tools have helped unleash creativity in an unprecedented way to create a democratised culture, this film looks specifically at how digital technology is increasingly pushing out traditional use of photochemical stock to make movies.’
