Tom Perlmutter — The Evolution of Cinema and the Birth of a New Art Form
Tom Perlmutter believes that "as human beings, we are constantly trying to order the world." When he was a teenager, he began to see film as an effective and inspiring means to do so. The invention of film changed the way humans told stories. For the first time, they could visually arrange a narrative, telling a story by "organizing an aesthetic experience." In recent years, technological advances have made it possible for films to be interactive, putting the power to structure a narrative into audiences' hands. The ability to navigate a digital landscape allows an audience to be a more intrinsic part of the film. Perlmutter's exploration into new modes of storytelling "will lead us to radically different ways of engaging with the world."
