137 - MAGFEST Live Show 2018 "What film can learn from video games"
Video games have long credited film as an inspiration. However, with box office number dropping while the financial footprint of the gaming industry soars, one has to admit that the student of escapist entertainment is now the monetary master. So should movies just tap out? Not if we have anything to say about it! ...and we do... because you know… there is this panel!
Half of the distinguished TOPAM gentlemen (i'll let you guess which one) along with special guests Red Charyszyn of Sikelia Pictures and James Portnow of Extra Credits return to MAGFest for this digital discussion. With the help of our live audience, we talk why this shift is occurring, what can Hollywood learn from gamings better practices, and why Jumanji and 4DX are not the answer.
