At this time of year, as sure a thing as the yearly winter flu virus that sweeps across the country is the fact that many a wise guy will peruse the tea leaves in his tea cup and boldly predict the hot trends that promise to shake the world of communication with film and video this year. And 2017 is no different.
Even though once these stupidities are propagated they seem to catch on, repeating them doesn’t make you any wiser. So as we welcome 2017, Videothink – unlike previous years – will refrain from making its own predictions. Instead of creating a list of trends in visual storytelling, we’ve decided to share with you what should be more aptly titled a wish list, we secretly hope our Good Fairy could grant us.
