The Scott Kirsner Interview – Part II
In Part II of my interview with Scott Kirsner, I ask for his take on the current state of the Hollywood studio system. How is it adjusting and transforming as a result of new technologies and the explosive growth of online media content? What are the opportunities emerging as a result of these changes? How does he see craftspeople and labor unions adjusting to the new realities of the current economic slump and business environment? Finally, I ask Mr. Kirsner to cite some examples of people who have been successful at monetizing independent new media projects for film and the web.
