Subscription as Artistic Service: Autonomy On Demand at HBO and Netflix

Posted by Owen Matson, Ph.D. on Apr 3, 2017 2:52:01 PM

Working with HBO was an opportunity to experience creative freedom and 'long-form development' that filmmakers didn't have a chance to do before the emergence of shows like The Sopranos.

 —Martin Scorsese

If you learn to treat them that way, you'll live a happier life.

Effective writing comes down to 3 simple steps:

  1. Figure out where your audience is now.
  2. Figure out where you want your audience to end up.
  3. Take them from one to the other.

If you can pull it off, anything goes.
