Celtx Industry Series | The Evolution of Media Creation: A 2030 Vision with MovieLabs

by Celtx
Industry Series

It’s long been understood that storytelling, and the creation and sharing of cultural content, drives human social evolution in the same way that our genes drive physical evolution. Storytellers have always been innovators, and innovation and evolution of technologies benefit storytellers and creative visionaries in a virtuous circle of media evolution.

Participants joined Celtx on December 15th as we discussed The Evolution of Media Creation with MovieLabs’ Mark Turner and Daniel Lucas as part of the Celtx Industry Series. We spoke about their 2030 Vision Paper, and explored how shared goals in technological and industry innovations can help content creators increase output and reduce inefficiencies and production time.

MovieLabs has partnered with member studios Disney, Paramount, Sony Pictures, Universal, and Warner Bros to transform the future of media production – driving the evolution of our cultural content and entertainment.

Watch the recording to learn more about the future of film and how you, as a content creator, can share in this evolution.
