I had never heard about the upcoming documentary Press Pause Play until about an hour ago, but after first discovering the film’s trailer I became hooked on watching the various clips featured on the film’s YouTube channel. As somebody that’s interested in the way creative media is evolving, I can’t wait to see it and figured it would likely interest many of you as well.
Here’s how the film’s website describes what it’s about:
The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent of people in an unprecedented way, unleashing unlimited creative opportunites.
But does democratized culture mean better art, film, music and literature or is true talent instead flooded and drowned in the vast digital ocean of mass culture? Is it cultural democracy or mediocrity?
This is the question addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era.
Sounds pretty interesting, huh? Well, if you need more convincing, here’s a few video teasers from the film.

The film debuts at the SXSW Festival – no word yet on its release beyond that as far as I know.
