The Cinematic Rise of the Unknown

I was honestly shocked this week that I had only just discovered the second largest film industry in the world.

This prohibits individuals from copying, modifying, or selling any creations such as literature, gaming programs, movies, computer software and architecture. Applications have been named 'The Future of Copyright Infringement'. The loose guidelines and easy path ways... Continue Reading →

Remix Culture

Music genres have been expanding for hundreds of years, each bringing a new vibe and wave of artists for man-kind to listen to. This new generation has also created an obsession with re-mixing different audio materials that would have never been previously considered together.

Will The Legacy Live On?

Traditional media outlets have become a ticking time-bomb. The once dominating medium of distributed information, the newspaper is on its way to becoming a museum artefact for the next generation to view.
