"Screen 2030: Making My Content Pay" doco Launched at VIVID IDEAS
Metro Screen’s Digital Kitchen, funded by Screen NSW, looks ahead to the next 10-15 years and asks the big questions: What will the screen industry look like in 2030 and will a creative screen career pay the rent?
This year’s VIVID IDEAS event launched the documentary, Screen 2030: Making My Content Pay, to a full house at the MCA. Host Tim Parsons led a panel discussion exploring the future careers of emerging content makers with some of the screen and media industry’s key thinkers including media futurist, Mark Pesce, Senior Manager of Strategy, Research and Communications at Screen Australia, Georgie McClean, Emmy Award winning producer, Marcus Gillezeau, and all media documentary producer, Ester Harding.
Some of the key take-homes from the video for aspiring screen and content creators:
‘If a screen professional wants to have a career in 2030, they need to be doubling down on their story capability, their world and myth making. Those capabilities come to the front’.
Mark Pesce, Media Futurist
‘This is the best time ever to be a writer, creator, producer or director of stories because there’s never been more diverse audiences, there’s never been more active niches and there’s never been more mediums to tell these stories’.
Mike Jones, Writer, Portal Entertainment
‘I think always a good story is a good story and if you tell a good story really well you can just tell it as a story’.
Louise O’Donnell, Writer Producer, Hoodlum
