It’s The End Of TV As We Know It

It’s The End Of TV As We Know It

The Future Of Digital Media

A two hour documentary and website for VPRO Television about the future of media. The program contains interviews with a crossection of the Internet and media industry in the United States, such as Jeff Bezos (Amazon.com), Richard Gariott (Ultima Online) and James Murdoch (Newscorp). What does the digital revolution mean for television culture as we know it; the TV in the central position in the living room, the broadcasters who decide what we see? With these questions in mind Femke Wolting and Bruno Felix travelled through the United States to interview people from the internet and media industry, from established filmstudio’s to start-ups, from the pioneers in Silicon Valley to the venture capitalists, the trend watchers and the new media moguls. People like Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Bran Farren (Disney), Scott Kurnit (About.com), James Murdoch (Newscorp), Richard Gariott (Ultima Online) and Peter Schwartz (Global Business Network).
