"The idea that someone anywhere in the world can now make a film, cut it and upload it is remarkable. It means we're connected," said two-time Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, explaining how wireless handsets form an unprecedented channel for launching non-mainstream would-be directors, actors and writers.
Because "the first film a person has ever seen could be a mobile short," especially in developing markets, he added that this artistic responsibility makes it all the more important that the bugs be worked out of the technology of digital platforms.
