Many of us “industry veterans” have marveled to see the exponential rate of speed at which our industry has grown. My partner, Mark Schulze, started our video production business “Crystal Pyramid Productions” in 1981. So together we have witnessed the advent of videotape (VHS, Beta (which met with a tragic death), ¾”, 1”, Betacam SP, D2 and DVCam). We moved from 4x3 standard definition to 16x9 HD.

That one goal is to make the viewer experience unforgettable.

Your average VR project requires a lot of complicated equipment, a number of complicated steps, and a co-ordinated, full on team effort. In the distant future – think ‘flying cars and robot butlers’ distant – you may well be able to shoot 360 VR films on your iPhone (or future equivalent). For now, the process involves more than just reaching into your pocket and whipping out your phone.

The average human attention span is seven seconds. The average attention span of a goldfish is nine seconds. 

You can draw your own conclusions here, but the truth is we would rather click play on a video than read an article about the same topic. In fact, if this article were in the form of a compelling video, it would get a higher engagement rate and you would feel like you know me a little better by the end. (My name is Paige, by the way. It’s only fair that I start by introducing myself.)

When Nixon and Kennedy squared off during the first televised presidential debate in 1960, it changed American politics forever. Last year brought a similar transformation--this time in the form of unfiltered tweets. The demand for first-person narrative has erupted alongside the powerful consumer technology that drives it, allowing everyday people to become influencers and public figures to leverage their following for political gain. The ways that we produce and consume content are in constant evolution, yet one common theme holds steady: fact or fiction, people want content that feels real.
