Video did it, the internet did it and now the FWA did it!
MURDERERS! THE WHOLE LOT OF YOU!
Media loves to kill. The new must over take the old.
There is a rule and it kind of explains why sometimes bad things happen to the good.
When something is good its good! The perfect harmony and balanced perfection are obvious, but then it grows, its evolves and must now get better... in order for better to take root, the old good must be destroyed.
The FWA is good, no need to destroy it, its great! FWAtheater.com is not better, its different.
Its been 8 long years since the FWA started awarding websites day in and day out. After 8 years a new site has emerged.
The FWA Theater or as Rob might call it The FWA Theatre, has launched!
Video on the web has been the tiger crouching at the gates, its pounce has been a thing of beauty and who better than to document the best and the brightest than The FWA!
The convergence is here, video has made the web its home, and the FWA just became its den. The vastness of YouTube and the exactness of Hulu and ABC are for the masses, what Rob has given us once again is that spotlight, that magnifying glass to help us all see things a bit closer and help us all get better by wanting to beat out what we were just blown away by.
Every industry has a source, the creative womb where ideas are hatched and nurtured. Media is certainly one of the most creative industries in the world, music, movies, advertising and experimentation are all characters that play themselves out each day on the FWA and now they will come to life in the form of video, motion graphics, and anything else that cane be shown at around 24 frames per second.
I'm very excited about the new site and will now have to sacrifice sleep to stay on top of the best and the most creative out there.
Media has been slain once again.
