Re: New announcement: Mobile content for snapchat
I think sometimes I take today's advances for granted. There was a time where animation was all drawn out from scratch and today it's just so different. So much faster and animation looks so much more realistic.

@John: Not to mention that back then, it was all done the old-fashioned way of animation: people drawing frame by frame.

@elizabethv: I think it could work for live-action just as easily -- and already does, in the form of TV "webisodes" and other serialized video content online.

Re: Discovery downsizing is okay
As I am sure you concur @JohnBarnes, we are now at that era aren't we?    Thsi is as we're just seeing Google/Alphabet get into the game with the YouTube Direct Service--the question is where will it all go?

Joe, A lot of very early made for TV cartoons were actually in 5 minute segments -- Crusader Rabbit in its earliest version, Space Angel, The Mighty Hercules, Courageous Cat, Tom Terrific. Longer would have cost more and anyway most of the early ones were short segments in longer live action.

MPouraryan, My guess us that in the millennia of telecom development and history yet to come, the age of mandatory viewing schedules will be an eyeblink like gaslights, dirigibles, wire recorders, or kinescopes.

It is that power that all strive to have--the question is how the existing providers will harness that power to their benefit.

Re: Discovery downsizing is okay
There is no doubt that Disney has its' challenges as underscored by what is going on at ESPN.    It was also quite interesting as I saw how the head of BT in the UK today attacked the exuberant prices being paid for Sports Rights.    I have a sneaking suspicion that's why NBA launched the E-League because they're also seeing the writing on the wall.

Re: New announcement: Mobile content for snapchat
ElizabethV, That was pretty much my thinking. There used to be a lively market in 40-60k word novels because many people liked to read the whole thing in the time between supper and bed. Nowadays many editors will tell you they want short chapters to provide more stopping points and web serialization is quite common. How we chop up our entertainment is largely a matter of culture and convenience.

ElizabethV, Well, historically many of the most innovative periods in film have originated in there being somewhere cheap to make movies combined with a low cost distribution system. Maybe it's happening again.
