William Gibson on digital film

"I can only trust that Johnny’s entertainment system, and the culture that informs it, will be founded on solid curatorial principles...

Because I see ... a freshly-extruded resin action-figure, another instantaneous product of Johnny’s entertainment system.

It is a woman, posed balletically, as if in flight on John Wu wires. It is Meryl Streep, as she appears in The Hours. She has the head of a chihuahua."

The fiddle factor for films is coming, says William Gibson. Here he logs a talk given at the Directors Guild of America’s Digital Day.
