Filmmaker's note

I think in the future, with all the new forms of media, linear narrative will give way to a more cellular/organic approach to storytelling. Stories can no longer rely on A-to-B progressions and standard character arcs for structural integrity. More than ever the craft of transitions will define content and emotional structure.
