It’s the creative, stupid!

Kevin Spacey hat auf dem Fernsehfestival in Edinburgh eine so scharfzüngige wie unterhaltsame Rede gehalten, von der man nur hoffen kann, das sie von jedem, der in einem Fernsehsender etwas zu sagen hat, gesehen wird.

Wer nicht so viel Zeit hat, sich die ganze Rede anzusehen, die immerhin 46 Minuten lang ist, sollte ab Minute 21:40 hineinschauen, wo Spacey ans Eingemachte geht. Hier sind die besten Passagen daraus.

Zunächst beschreibt Spacey die Reaktion der Networks auf sein Projekt „House of Cards“ und kritisiert die vorherrschende Praxis des Pilotierens der US-Sender. Die Idee von Netflix, alle Folgen von „House of Cards“ auf einmal zu veröffentlichen, sei ein voller Erfolg gewesen:

„The audience wants the control. They want the freedom. If they want to binge […] let them binge. […] Through this new form of distribution we have demonstrated that we have learned the lesson, the music industry didn’t learn: Give people what they want, when they want it, in the form they want it in, at a reasonable price and they’ll more likely pay for it rather than steal it.“

Anschließend kommt Spacey direkt zur Gretchenfrage des Fernsehens und ruft eindringlich zu einem Wandel der Einstellung der Fernsehmanager zu den kreativen Talenten auf:

„We get what the audiences want: they want quality. We get what the talent wants: artistic freedom.  And the only way to protect talent and the quality of our work is to be innovative. We also get what the corporations want […]: They want to make money. And we need them to be profitable so that they can continue to fund high quality production. They want the highest possible audiences with the greatest impact. We get it. The challenge is: can we create an environment, where executives, who live in data and numbers, are emboldened and empowered to support our mission? To have an environment in that leadership will take risks, willing to experiment, be prepared to fail, aiming higher rather than playing it safe? […] We need to be better than the audience. We need to surprise, break boundaries and take viewers to new places. We need to give them better and better quality. We might not disrupt the status quo over night. But we can mould structures at the center of our businesses, because if we really, truly, put talent at the heart of everything we do, we might just be able to have greater highs across a broader spectrum of this industry.“

Anschließend beschreibt Spacey die Erfolgsgeschichte von „Breaking Bad“, das in den ersten Staffeln alles andere als berauschende Zuschauerzahlen erreicht hat und erst nach Veröffentlichung auf Netflix und cleverer Wiederholungsprogrammierung zu dem Hit wurde, der die Serie inzwischen ist.

Schließlich kommt Spacey auf das neue „Goldene Zeitalter“ des Fernsehens zu sprechen: es sei keine Frage mehr, dass das Fernsehen mit Serien wie den „Sopranos“ bis hin zu „Mad Men“ heute das Kino an erzählerischer Qualität in den Schatten stellt. Er prophezeit, dass die Studios und das Kino dem Untergang geweiht sind, wenn sie nicht auf die wachsende Komplexität im Storytelling reagieren und erklärt die Unterschiede zwischen Kino- und Fernsehfilm oder Serie für überholt, weil das Publikum diese Unterscheidung auch nicht mehr vornimmt.

Schließlich wendet sich Spacey noch gegen den Nihilismus des „Nobody knows anything“:

„We do know how this works and it’s always been about empowering artists. […] We know what works. The only thing we don’t know is, why is it so difficult to find executives with the fortitude, the wisdom and the balls to do it?“

Schließlich kommt Spacey zu einem flammenden Aufruf:

„To an unheard of degree, we are finally free from that whory old shadow cast over television since its inception: the shadow of ratings. Not one of us in this room will ever see a 30-share in his lifetime and that’s a wonderful, freeing thing! Netflix did it right and focused on the things that have replaced the dumb, raw numbers of the Nielsen world: they embraced targeted marketing and brand as a virtue higher than ratings. And the audience has spoken: they want stories! They are dying for them. They are rooting for us to give them the right thing. And they will talk about it, binge on it, carry it with them on the bus and to the hairdresser, force it on their friends, tweet, blog, facebook, make fanpages, silly gifs and god knows what else about it. Engage with it, with a passion and intimacy that a blockbuster movie could only dream of. And all we have to do is give it to them. The price fruit is right there, shinier and juicier than its ever been before. So it will be all the more shame on each and every one of us, if we don’t reach out and seize it.“

Hier ist die ganze Rede:

  1. formidable moment passé avec JF Kahn , c’est du vrai, du ressenti, de quelqu’un qui aime son pays avant d’être un candidat du Modem, et cela nous fait aimer la France et le Mouvement Démocrate..le choix qu’à fait JF Kahn de rejoindre le Modem veut bien dire quelque chose non si nous réfléchissons un peu.

  2. really well done! You sold me on them I went onto the website to order one but unfortunately the majority of the patterns I was interested in are out of stock online. Do you know where I might be able to find them? I really, really like the Peacock pattern. Also, does your backpack get dirty because of the white accents? I really like it but I wouldn’t want to wash it periodically. PLEASE answer this, I’d really appreciate it!! thanks

  3. Em đã gửi một vài câu hỏi . Khi nào nghĩ thêm em sẽ gửi tiếp. Câu này cũng khá thú vị:Tại sao có người bị hói đầu khi về già?

  4. Bob are the conservatives right in insisting that this executive order will have little or no authority in the court of law? If so, what are we to make of the claim that liberals are making that the executive order is in fact the safeguard needed to assure that abortions are not federally funded?

  5. Passion in one’s true talent is impressive. Writers today usually have little passion about what they write, but you are a unique and great writer. I am glad to see that writers like you exist.

  6. après sa fuite, le philosophe déchu, ben ali(stophane) disait, après une nuit de méditation à Jaddah, que la Tunisie est un pays de dictatures, l’ex-président, apparemment, ke c’était moi même, mais aussi le peuple tunisien à cause de ce k’il a fait de moi et de ma famille sur fb

  7. He did this superb news flash personally, not simply due to your ex words, and because Ron was normally the one person within the company I possibly could by no means be friends with.Still, a greater headache around the way these kinds of units have to appear in addition to what exactly their particular style discloses is just not insignificant, often.They’re just just series of digit organizations where the digit categories into the proper are usually significantly regional.

  8. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is a very well written article. I’ll be sure to bookmark it and return to read more of Giovanna Antonelli conta segredos de beleza | Vittalisa . Thanks for the post. I’ll definitely return.

  10. Hey there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a collection of volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us valuable information to work on. You have done a outstanding job!

  11. dit :SalutOuai ben ma fille est dans une école de feignasse alors…Ils se sont déguisés pour la mi-carême et la maitresse n’a même pris la peine de faire en sorte que les enfants confectionnent quoique ce soit…Puis bon l’ambiance n’était pas là (contrairement aux autres années) (changement de direction), tout le monde a attendu la sonnerie pour pouvoir prendre son enfant (alors que la fête était sensée continuer).Donc ce que tu dis moi ça me donne envie…Et j’ai la nostalgie des autres années.Bonne journée

  12. Oh, cool – I’ve heard you explain this before (and I was listening, really!), but I hadn’t seen a side by side comparison like that before. Very Nice! A picture really is worth a thousand words. Especially when discussing photography, I guess! Also, now I know why my snapshots never look like yours. (Aside from the tons of talent and years of classes and experience, that is.)

  13. , if you’re driving 30 minutes to meet on Sundays — and you have few other saints w/in 10 minute proximity with which to develop community on a regular basis — then I’d argue you might want to either:1) look again for a church of like doctrine nearby2) convince your church to start a plant near you so others of like mind don’t have to travel so far.In other words, if the church you attend is worth the trip, it’s also worth considering replicating.

  14. Hey!, been surfing the net for Bad Credit Loans & Debt Consolidation and found your blog regarding We the people, Them the politicians. The Twain Shall Never Meet. You really know your stuff! I?d like to see more posts here. Will definitely bookmark it and come back.

  15. Thanks, Adrienne. Funny you should mention Cinderella. I’m currently writing a psychological version of that fairy tale, making use of many things that people have shared here about their narcissistic mothers.

  16. I didn’t read it at first because it was too long, but I went back and read it and then gave it -1. Thanks for pointing that out. +2Was this answer helpful?

  17. I don't think $2b of US aid is enough to explain Egyptian sensitivity on foreign opinion. Government revenues for 2009 were $51b, so while $2b is not insignificant, it is money they could probably get by without.

  18. muslim, on ne vous demande pas de renier le coran mais de revoir certaines lignes qui rabaissent la femme et qui ne tolèrent pas les autres religions. Qu’est ce que les femmes vous ont fait pour que vous les traitiez ainsi ?!!!!! Et qu’est ce qui vous prend de ne pas tolèrer d’autres religions ?!!!, nous sommes « a plus de 1500 ans après J.C » comme le dit si bien « muslim », il faut évoluer!!!!

  22. Thanks for these guidelines. One thing I also believe is that credit cards presenting a 0% monthly interest often entice consumers along with zero interest rate, instant acceptance and easy over-the-internet balance transfers, but beware of the real factor that may void your own 0% easy road annual percentage rate as well as throw anybody out into the poor house in no time.

  23. Hihihi. Din galning. Fast om du skickar in den ansökan lär du garanterat få deras uppmärksamhet. Kanske får du jobbet bara pga att du sticker ut från mängden?;-)

  24. Здравствуйте, Анастасия.Для того, чтобы принять участие в курсах, необходимо заполнить резюме у нас на сайте, прийти на собеседование и выполнить практическое задание.Спасибо.

  25. I saw on another blog this week someone using a salad spinner with temper paint. I skipped Easter all together and am going to do all these activities next week. I think they will still enjoy it even though late.

  26. Wow, su perb weblog structure! How long have you ever been running a blog for? you make blogging look easy. The general look of your site is great, let alone the content material!

  27. Philip Roth au moins autant que vous; et sûrement comme beaucoup d’autres.Mais si un jour vous m’entendez écrire d’un artiste qu’il est un tâcheron, n’hésitez pas à me citer n’importe quel extrait que vous jugerez probant. C’est là une preuve de courtoisie que je vous demande par avance.

  28. This is a lot guide. I need to say I like reading this article a great deal. It will help me to turn into better grasp on the subject. It is very well published. I will definitely see this kind of satisfied so fascinating. Hopefully you could provide more sooner or later.

  29. ist genau das, was ich vorhabe: Das Thema “Hai” so lange verbreiten, bis der letzte Spacko kapiert hat, dass es so nicht weitergehen kann und man den Haien (und dem gesamten Rest der Welt, die uns umgibt) endlich den nötigen Respekt entgegenbringt!

  30. “no but it will make what you got last night better”. The Holy Ghost will not prevent you from sinning, but He will convict you and you will know what you are doing is wrong. If you have sin in your life you are not born again and you do not have the Holy Ghost.


  32. The New York Times has reported along with several other newspapers that it was a "right wing conservative Christian" not a Muslim, the left must be salivating, god only knows what is store for us if this is true or made to be true. I'm with Micheal Savage on this one, something smells funny.

  33. Perdon….quise decir que lo recomiendo. Otra cosa… sorprendio la relacion calidad precio, la verdad es que no me parecio nada caro y ademas, cambiamos el vino del menu y nos cobraron el 50% de lo que valia la botella….todo un detalle

  34. Hmmm … well … I’m unapologetically Wesleyan-Arminian. However, I must admit that I find very few United Methodist Clergy today who can even articulate the Wesleyan Ordo Salutis, much less give a coherent counter to the 5 Points (TULIP) of Calvinist Doctrine. Our clergy, for being supposedly “educated,” tend to be woefully ignorant of Systematics.

  35. merhaba arkadaşlar; ben 43 yaşındayım, 25 yıldır bu pisliği içmekteyim.2 kez bu pisliği bırakmaya çalıştım, başaramadım, bu 3.cü denemem, 1 haftadır içmiyorum, ama bu kez başaracağım inşallah, bir ayda bu pisliğe verdiğim para 200,00 TL , başbakanın yapmış olduğu bu son zam, ilk defa bir işe yaramış oldu, sigarayı bırakmama vesile oldu, dularınız eksik etmeyin

  38. Baptist theologue,If you read past the end of your quote [in the camel], Greeson clarifies which part of the Quran he is referencing: “I am but a plain warner”-46:9.He is not affirming the totality of quranic claims concerning Muhammad. Nevertheless, he should probably reword it so that people cannot take it out of context and then apply it ubiquitously to the whole Quran.

  39. holy moly crazy man! glad you are OK and so is your home. but really since when are you a storm chaser?we are praying for everyone in tornado alley this year. what a violent season it has already been.hugs to all of you!jill

  40. I cannot wait to try these. I am sorry that you have had to deal with the ‘photo’ issues. Maybe because it was posted publicly, us other folks can learn from it all and may be educated about labeling/linking photos in case we blog. Blessings to you and thank you for your recipe

  41. Nice to be visiting your blog again, it has been months for me. Well this article that i’ve been waited for so long. I need this article to complete my assignment in the college, and it has same topic with your article. Thanks, great share.

  43. Reply to Community Worker.Infact where have we seen this combination before, albeit a much friendlier version?Let’s look at the evidence…..An ugly boorish ogre with few friends who most likely scares his neighbours when he leaves his house….Then you have the little one…. Always talking but never really saying much but just keeps on and on without thinking….Step forward….Shrek and Donkey!!!

  44. Hey Emily! I think I will always love the chalkboard wall. I have a soft spot for anything whimsical and child-like in decorating and this just never gets old for me! I’m looking forward to doing a green chalkboard wall in our beach cottage kitchen this summer. LOVE the Soar print, so so beautiful. You are a shining star for Him!

  45. Mon ambassade m’a aussi demandé de faire attention et de ne pas sortir à partir de Vendredi.Vendredi, comme tous les Vendredi, on est sortis entre expatriés, dans notre restaurant habituel. Certains avaient peur (les américains) d’autres étaient en colère (les français). Et beaucoup ne sont pas venus.Ce soir là, J’ai rencontré une Allemande. Elle n’avait pas la télé, alors elle ne savait pas ce qui se passait. On a parlé d’autre chose. Et on a passé la nuit ensemble.Bref, cassez votre télé.

  46. I think the vocabulary has changed, and the danger exposure has exploded (FB and phone pic and instant upload video) but fundamentally, the angst is still the same. Except maybe modern teens “share” their inner thoughts more readily? At any rate, I wouldn’t want a Freaky Friday incident with my daughter. I wouldn’t survive her life.

  47. I must disclose that we was transferred through the concept that you just illustrate below. It’s remarkable how well you could adhere words in a coherent whole, the fact that man have this sort of feelings.

  48. I’ve just seen the ‚watch out for cyclists‘ execution with the moon walking bear and it kicks the arse of all of these.I actually laughed out loud in my own home at something in an ad break.

  49. oh joaopft só não há protecção para a miséria a que o povo está acometido com este governo ou o povo é areia na engrenagem do governo ou uma espécie de erva daninha a mais no ecosistema (€uro sistema governamental)

  50. Would it be possible to get a step-by-step guide on some rules recommendations for those of us with Sophos Enterprise? I would feel safer blocking Java via client firewall, given their history for slow updates.

  51. I´d really love to win this! We are having a baby on June 🙂 I don´t want to use dipers that are disposable. I want to make sure that I do everything for my babys best and using disposable diapers would be cruel! This package would might interest my husband too and make him want to use “The right thing” 😀

  52. Cute card. Love the colour combo. I bet your colouring still looking fab on the one that went in the bin! Can see the attractions with the DIs tho, they are great to work with, just need to get some more colours.Sam x

  53. ImViper dit :Slt a tous , je sais que je suis un peu en retard, je me demandais si vous cherchez encore de la place, je suis tres bon décorateur, mais je n’ai pas 18 ans. Puis-je quand même être recruter

  54. I simply could not go away your web site prior to suggesting that I really enjoyed the usual information a person supply for your guests? Is going to be back continuously in order to investigate cross-check new posts.

  55. Hey! I enjoyed this! I needed this! Today, after work, I’m breaking out my new Gaiam resistance bands with accompanying CD-filmed-in-Maui (maybe I actually want to BE in Maui??) … so this was good pre-strength training mind-strength training!!! … I will think about the CHALLENGE and the FUN of it and the CHURN of it! … Thanks Sista!

  56. я послушал все твои работы и если честно большой разницы не заметил у тебя есть твоё неповторимое звучание,как наверно и у всех здесь присутствующих битоделов,оно и останется на любых пукалках или мониторах имхо1f4b

  57. It is obvious to have fear with mushrooms. The mushroom which we can’t distingwish where it is poisonous or edible should be eated in very small piece if it’s test is not solty and it is not showning bad or irritating effects then it can taken for investigation. There are lot of mushroom which are edible should be eaten without fear.

  58. Aw, this was a really nice post. In concept I want to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and precise effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and on no account appear to get one thing done.

  60. Not. Okay. I absolutely do NOT under any circumstances give ANYBODY or ANY ORGANIZATION permission to use my contacts list. Ever.Opt. out is not okay either. This needs to be an OPT-IN feature. This is a huge privacy breach.

  61. Moin liebe Nadine,ich hab dir ja gestern schon auf deinem Blog geantwortet – das Stöckchen hab ich schon Du darfst hier gern mein Gast sein, aber nicht vergessen “Nur gucken, nicht anfassen” Liebe GrüßeJan

  62. Definetly work on your wording, as well, it is unclear exactly who your audience is. I see your saying society shouldn’t use nuclear power plants, but society in general is a very broad spectrum of places and people. You need to be more specific. Who exactly are you talking to?
