Forming a Collaborative
Many have foundational knowledge in film and television, but few outside the industry fully grasp the expanding opportunities for those skilled in digital media. Whether considered, friend or foe, digital media continues to reinvent the norms for how we interact with information; forcing traditional industries to sweep away tradition and demand new skills for new times.
