Hollywood Reporter, October 16th – Power to the Pixel Keynote Speaker Says Movies Will Need to Expand on Audience Experience, by Stuart Kemp. Citing a desire to squeeze more from big budget investments, Fourth Wall Studios co-founder Sean Stewart says the creatives and the consumers are becoming more closely aligned. The best-selling fantasy sci-fi novelist turned transmedia hit maker delivered his keynote focusing on the changing relationship between author and audience and how it is transforming the art of storytelling. He noted that, according to a recent piece of Google research, 77 percent of audiences watching television are using other connected devices, be they laptops, smart phones or desktops. The message he delivered was that hardware will mean changes to the way stories are told, in the same way that the invention of the printing press and mass-produced books changed the market for the written word.
