“The whole world has turned into trash TV.” - Jeff Gomez
“I think we really, for real now, need to think about the audience as part of the content creation process. “ - Louisa Heinrich
“I am struck by the beginning of a trend against technology in general. It seems that the need for real life events and experiences is coming back big time.” - Michel Reilhac
