It feels entirely appropriate to discuss the future of motion pictures in video format. I gave a keynote last spring at the 51st San Francisco International Film Festival. Billed as their annual “State of Cinema,” I was told I was the first one to give the address using pictures of any sort! Mere slides, but visual enough. Captured here is a raw, not very sharp, video feed of the talk. The audio is low, so it needs to be dialed up. Film people are often not very filmic in their own processes.
