With cutting-edge technology now within the grasp of the public and the buzz term ‘crowdsourcing’ providing some brands with actual results, the doors to previously closed industries are opening up.
One of the most previously unattainable sectors for a start-up to break into was TV. The huge capital cost, expertise and equipment needed was simply beyond new companies.
However, more reasonably priced technology is starting to provide start-ups with a slice of the TV market. In the US, the Novacut project has gained seed funding and provides a content platform for artists and aspiring TV creators.
Novacut hopes that it will generate a community that will provide knowledge and experience to those attempting to get their content into the mainstream. Other seemingly inaccessible sectors could be breached by entrepreneurs with the right idea and collaboration behind them.
