interview | a chat with blueprint, a digital creative collective interview | a chat with blueprint, a digital creative collective “From a deep pool of blue ink rises an image…” – this is written on Blueprint‘s Neocha.com homepage, a digital collective that describes itself as a Chinese creative group with no artistic bounds. In an “Internet world” filled with many options for exploring different kinds of creative content, we find ourselves frequently entering Blueprint’s creative world. Their distinctive style comes from the ambient / “lowercase” electronic sound they produce as well as their visual works, which exude a subtle mysticism. The depth and breadth of content under the “Blueprint” name actually comes from members who live in many cities, including Zhengzhou, Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Nanjing, among others. It’s important to note here that the new generation of Chinese creatives can’t be neatly divided into the usual first tier city, second tier city, etc. classifications.

Silicon Hutong In the HutongFocus...Focus...1558 hrs. While I was absorbing caffeine and beta carotene at a sunny Beverly Hills espresso spigot earlier this month, I came across a superb article in the Wall Street Journal explaining how the U.S. motion picture business is starting to make films that are aimed at an international market. The phenomenon has reached such a stage, in fact, that movies ONLY likely to appeal to a domestic U.S. audience are not getting the green light, and those films deemed promising but too US centric are being given script and casting makeovers to make themselves more appealing to international audience. Darn those Foreigners Paying to See Our Movies! Silicon Hutong

It offers this excerpt: By the beginning of 1948, when the pressure abated, some 160 million people were under communist control. The Peking Duck The Peking Duck
