Chapter Nine. The Digital Future > Do What's Never Been Done

Do What's Never Been Done

Why am I talking about this here? Because I believe it's you, the new generation of video editors, media creators, and filmmakers, who can bring about this reinvention of the medium. I don't think we need machinery as sophisticated as a holodeck to find new ways to use the film medium. The simple technology of making marks on paper was transformed from a primitive accounting machine into an art capable of creating novels that captivate the human imagination in ways theretofore unknown. I believe we are on the verge of a similarly significant transformation in film.

Final Cut Pro is just a tool, a way to make the art of film and video editing easier and less expensive. But the intersection of affordable filmmaking tools and the exploding potential of the Web as a distribution medium creates possibilities that exceed the sum of these parts.
