Now Serving Viewing Options

 The closer you think you are, the less you'll actually see.” – “Now You See Me,” Summit Entertainment, 2013

Producers, directors and talent will disagree, but we often feel that the best filmmakers around are the people who do film trailers.

They take the best parts of the video story, whether you watch the film in a theater or on your home screen and make it … interesting.

And, they do it all in less than two minutes.

5G Will Open the Complete Content Pipeline

“My dad believed in you.  I’m not going to make the same mistake.” – Lt. Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw, Top Gun: Maverick, Paramount, 2021

Back in 1986 when Top Gun first hit the screen, we heard those oft quoted words spoken, “I feel the need, the need for speed.” 

And when our daughter walks out of the theater after seeing Maverick and pulls out her iPhone to connect with the world, she might say the same thing.

 Getting blistering 5G performance will be a crapshoot at best.

Sure, the 5G icon may light up but big deal, our phone will light up its 5GE icon (eventually) and we’ll both be on a 4G LTE network.

That’s sorta okay because good marketing is good marketing.

Despite the sluggish year, CCS Insight projects 5G networks worldwide will triple this year to 670 million and are on track to reach 3.6 billion in 2025

Our issue is we’d rather be like people in other parts of the world and pay for performance, not their brilliant, persistent marketing.
