Directors Spielberg and Lucas Predict ‘Massive Implosion’ in Film Industry

Directors Spielberg and Lucas Predict ‘Massive Implosion’ in Film Industry

Yesterday on June 13, 2013, The Verge’s Brian Bishop published a story with the provocative headline “Steven Spielberg and George Lucas predict ‘massive implosion’ in film industry”. The article covers a panel discussion held at the University of Southern California by directors George Lucas and Steven Speilberg and Microsoft’s President of Interactive Entertainment Don Mattrick.  Quickly, their predictions include $50-100 trips to high-end movie theaters, diversification of content on television, and an indie emphasis on publishing content directly to the internet first. Similar concepts were echoed in our interview with director Amanda Bluglass. We recommend reading The Verge article.
