No, it’s not a conspiracy – but Netflix and the actors are each trying to hide something else.
In this episode we are talking about …
- How the UK government started to require streaming services to provide data on how many people are watching their shows.
- Like movie industry data – like box office numbers – has always been public, but streaming services have kept their data very private.
- How Netflix wants control over which of their numbers come out and when.
- How YouTube has very public data that resulted in lawsuits when metrics changed.
- How this data can be used to help artists and creatives – but also that data isn’t always useful, especially if not interpreted with sophistication.
- Whether actors are allowed to be taller than they are.
- How this all came down to a tweet about male actors exaggerating their height, which sparked some controversy on Twitter.
- When altitude is important and when not.
- Tech news this week is pretty quiet – but tune in again next week for a deep dive into Blackmagic!
- A follow-up question when Charles recently mentioned his job reading scripts and specific reasons he found certain scripts below average.
- How often does the script reader read part of the beginning and part of the end rather than the entire script.
- Why you really have to write what interests you.
