Another one I saw at the 2011 CIFF. Nothing much new to learn in this doc. You don't get to know the artists using new technology very well. So many different talking heads flicker by and so many artists briefly appear only to not be seen again. Music is more heavily focused upon than movies, ebooks, or graphic arts. If everyone has the technology and thinks they can be the next star or success story, how does this water down our culture? How does this amateur movement chasing instant success influence those who have in depth training and experience backing up their art? This movie is fast and flashy and with the focus on music reminded me of a club scene. After a few months the one artist who stuck, who had the longest through line in the movie, was the young pianist who mixed classical and pop influences while self recording at home until he was invited to play with a professional philharmonic orchestra.

It means well, but it's an extremely depressing vision of art in the 21st century.

Fantastic film. It covers so much of any creatives and opens the door to discuss whether or not affordable "game-changing" digital advances have helped or burdened the industry their in. Beautiful cinematography. Engaging content and fantastic editing!

One of the most interesting and relevant documentaries I've seen. Beautiful camera work, amazing sound and a very thought provoking look at creativity and digital culture. Go see it if you can!

Insightful and very engaging. Shot beautifully and edited with a strong understanding of the film's content. Recommended to anyone and everyone interested in pursuing music or film...

One of the smarter documentaries to come out in recent memory. It tackles a lot of important subject matter without confusing or losing the viewer, without imparting too much subjectivity. Excellent cinematography and execution.

if creativity needs a spark, this is it.
