Oh, the power of editing.

Today's video of the day is a fan-made feature length movie version of Breaking Bad. The feature uses exisiting footage from the series re-edited to make a two-hour movie.

This is a good example of how good storytelling techniques pretty much stay the same no matter if you are making a 62-episode TV series in 45 minute installments, a two hour movie, or even a one-minute video, the principles of storytelling remain the same.

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.


The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.


For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
