Just Press Play!
El título del documental puede resumir en una acción uno de los temas de discusión con más eco entre los músicos, artistas y productores en nuestros tiempos: Oprima y reproduzca es un trabajo testimonial en el que a través de varias historias, toma forma la controversia sobre la accesibilidad tecnológica con la que cuentan hoy en día todo creativo, la democratización de la industria y el eterno debate sobre la autenticidad de las obras de arte que emergen de un aparato electrónico.

When Art and Technology and Moby Collide
We’re at an artistic crossroads, says the documentary Press Pause Play. Technology means it’s never been easier to create, to push out a little piece of oneself and share it with the world. But that ease has created a landscape where the haystack is gigantic and the needles still relatively sparse.

Massive transitional periods, such as the first explosion of mass communication from the printed page or the digital watershed we are currently experiencing, raise many questions with answers that only become clear decades after they occurred. PressPausePlay is a documentary that explores those questions, specifically as they pertain to culture in this, our digital age. A stylish, entertaining doc that is itself appropriately steeped in remix, PressPausePlay resembles a Gary Hustwit documentary that is all high design, thumping music, intellectual interviews, and pretty photography.

“PressPausePlay” is a documentary film perfect for any student, aspiring creative type, or those who consume art on any level.
The film weaves a series of interviews from industry leaders and nouveau artists together to form a balanced view of how art is made today. The question at the heart of “PressPausePlay” is “What is the future of art?
The strength of this documentary is its ability to tell a story. Through interviews and opinions, audiences are taken on a creative journey of discovery.

PressPausePlay is a documentary about how the age of affordable, high-quality technology and increased connectivity has revolutionised the way we create. Comprised entirely of talking-head interviews, its focus is mainly on filmmaking and music, with the emphasis slightly on the former; the implications for authors are also touched upon.

Earlier this year, the Swedish documentary Press Pause Play was debuted at major film festivals and creative conferences around the world. From their website, they describe PPP as follows:
The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities. But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out? 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.

PressPausePlay, an award-winning documentary about our new digital culture, premiered at SXSW earlier this year. It is playing at film festivals and you can buy it on iTunes, Amazon, and other digital pay sites. If you don’t want to pay for it, you can now download it via a torrent for free. This free option was essential to the filmmakers. As Seth Godin says in the film, ideas that are free spread faster.

Il documentario PressPausePlay sarà presentato durante la prossima edizione del roBOt Festival (Bologna, 28/9-1/10), evento dedicato alla cultura contemporanea della musica e del suono. “ Esiste una svariata serie di dispositivi hardware e innumerevoli software pensati per la musica, il video… insomma per tutte le arti digitali - spiega Antonio Puglisi, direttore artistico del festival - Gli artisti hanno sempre più il controllo sul proprio modo di creare e questo ne aumenta a dismisura le capacità espressive.

I am delighted to be included in the amazing new movie PressPausePlay, funded and promoted by Ericsson, along with some really great people such Hank Shocklee, Seth Godin, ZeFrank, Sean Parker, Larry Lessig and Mike Mesnick. And it's finally out and available! Here is what it's all about: "The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities.

We here at FilmBuff are very excited about the film PressPausePlay and we’re even more excited to present to you this edition of the FilmBuff Guest blog written by none other than the directors themselves, Victor Köhler and David Dworsky! This blog features discussions about “tipping points,” “stamped-sized videos” and the magical “it!” Enjoy!

Just think for one second about all your friends (Facebook or real) who take artsy photos and upload them online. Think of all your friends who have a blog or post hilarious videos on YouTube. Are these friends artists? Are their random postings and musings, art? And how will the overabundance of digital media we see everyday effect how we think about the important cultural milestones of this era?

"For the artwork, we surfed the web for stuff we liked and contacted the artists to see if they wanted their work in our film," explains Dworsky. "Almost everyone was really happy to do so."
There were some sequences they obviously couldn't go out and shoot, like a Jimmy Hendrix sequence. But instead of going out and finding bad-quality stock footage and paying an arm and a leg for it, they decided it would be a better solution to animate them.

...most of the professional voices agreed we may be headed toward another cultural dark age because the beautiful complexity of Bon Iver's music and the simplistic, sterilized noise of Rebecca Black can be consumed just as easily.
Juxtaposed against that doom-and-gloom message, however, were glimmers of hope, captured by sequences with Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds, whose story was woven seamlessly throughout the film.
The film's honest exploration of technology's impact on the current and future landscape of art is definitely worth the watch.

PressPausePlay hjärtar DIY-kulturen, men är inte okritisk: här finns röster som menar att guldkornen försvinner i skiten, hur svårt det är att synas och ta sig fram. Att konstnärlig integritet kan vara svår att behålla om man jagar tillräckligt många tryck på gilla-knappen för att få finansiering, eller massans kärlek. Att de stora namnen i filmmediets historia inte hade haft en chans idag. Kanske och må så vara: det hör till de nya villkoren.

Med dokumentären "PressPausePlay" har regissörerna David Dworsky och Victor Köhler velat titta närmare på hur digitaliseringen påverkar film- och musikbranschen på ett kreativt plan.
De kallar sig inte dokumentärfilmare, hellre kreatörer, och deras företag i vitmålade källarlokaler på Östermalm är inget produktionsbolag utan en "kreativ byrå". De varvar inkomstbringande reklamfilm och webbkampanjer med lekfullare projekt som "PressPausePlay"

Jag såg PressPausePlay i förra veckan och jag tycker att det var en väldigt intressant dokumentär som tar upp en hel del relevanta saker om just utvecklingen av inte bara skapandet utan även spridningen av nytt material. Det som gjorde dokumentären spännande var hur de hade blandat frågor till mer etablerade artiser och knyter ihop det med artister som inte är lika kommersiellt stora.

What got my attention was a film project that is part of the campaign called Press Pause Play. Its focus is to explore the new “ecosystem of global creators and artists” in which technology becomes partner in the creative process. Is technology just a tool or will it take creativity to places we have never seen? Is it really putting more power in the hands of the artist?

Kan vem som helst kan göra en poplåt? Vem som helst kan inte göra en bra poplåt, vem som helst kan inte sjunga stämsång i klass med Simon och Garfunkel eller hitta stämningen som Bon Iver letar fram inlåst i sin stuga under ett års skivinspelning. Däremot kan de flesta med betyget godkänt i musik från högstadiet och en laptop i knät skapa en låt som löst och ledigt smälter in i playlisten som spelas av valfri reklamradiokanal sju dagar i veckan.

Seth Godin said, “There has never been a better time to be an artist.” I'm not so sure about that. Yes, it’s true that making films, music, art, iPhone apps, you-name-it, has never been easier and more accessible. The equipment is cheap(er) and there is an abundance of DIY avenues for making, distributing, marketing your “stuff” and finding your audience. But with so much stuff being made, what are the chances that it will make a significant ripple in our culture, or that this ripple will last 15 seconds, let alone 15 minutes?

"Over the last decade creativity and talent of hundreds of millions of people have been unleashed in an unprecedented way, forever changing human culture. Our film is a humble contribution to the debate," says Charlotta Ribbefjord of the Swedish team behind the film. "PressPausePlay is a documentary film about hope, fear, and digital culture based on interviews with some of the world's most influential creators of the digital era such as Moby, Robyn, Sean Parker and Seth Godin, among others."

We pick up where we left yesterdays debate about whether social media is a fad and the future of so call “old” media. If social media is the future, as a result of the fact that if Facebook was a nation it would be the world’s 3rd largest, how should creative minds adapt to this in their approach to potential customers, clients and society?
