TV is more 'cinematic' than ever before. Do you agree that it's becoming 'the new film'?
I think there is truth in that, yes. HBO doesn’t see Game of Thrones as a string of TV episodes, they see it as a series of short films. With the rise of Netflix and other platforms like it, the audience consumes media much differently, via subscriptions, binge-watching, et cetera. More and more, the audience demands serious, high-quality programming because they’re investing so much of their time and in response, the script, the acting, and the visual effects are all of an increasingly higher standard.
