Video: PressPausePlay

PressPausePlay is a fascinating documentary about the digital revolution and how it has affected creative expression (trailer & full film).  Though the film specifically deals with the music industry, the subjects they examine could just as easily apply to graphic art or any industry that's succumbing to the digital revolution. PressPausePlay was shot by Swedish creative agency House of Radon... and is ironically being distributed by the small company through the same channels they bemoan in the film.  Evidently, they don't consider documentaries to be art.

The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent of people in an unprecedented way, unleashing unlimited creative opportunities.

But does democratized culture mean better art, film, music and literature or is true talent instead flooded and drowned in the vast digital ocean of mass culture? Is it cultural democracy or mediocrity?

This is the question addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era.
