Our view on the industry:

It is no secret that many traditional filmmakers are mortified that people watch their movies on laptops and hand-held devices. But even as new digital platforms are created, what will most likely survive, are good stories. Netflix and VOD may have changed the distribution model, but the growth of those companies proves that the public still loves good, original stories. And good, original stories are what we are about.
