What if spectators could use their smartphone at the cinema ? What if movie cameras could fly ? What if birds could help ? What if sound could be layered ? What if everyone could adjust content to his/her wishes and needs ? What if spectators could decide on the framing ? What if sound could be as directive as a laser ? What if movies could be immersive ? What if everyone could get a personalised experience ? Would all of this be possible, what would it mean for each one of us, as a scenarist, a director, a producer, a cinema owner or a spectator ?
