Encounters Film Festival is all about dreams, ideals and visions, but every now and then we need a person to bring us back to earth. Sometimes, we need people to put pen to paper and tell us what we need to do to accomplish our dreams. Wednesday, Chris Auty explained how he forged his way in the industry, describing how some pretty original business models came to life.
My favourite part of the talk? The ten fun facts that he presented for us to ponder.
Some examples:
Did you know Amazon loses about two dollars for every book they sell?
That the London Metropolitan Opera saved itself from bankrupcy almost exclusively thanks to the international screenings of their shows?
That the series House of Cards was created as the result of a market study on Netflix users?
