Unbridled Talent

I believe that one of the main changes in in digital media & entertainment is the separation of up and coming talent from traditional routes to success and fame. With websites like Garage Band and Epitonic allowing unsigned and/or unknown artists to post songs to an audience of audiophiles, the artists no longer need to rely on major-label records like Sony and Columbia to make their dreams come true.

The opportunity exists for aspiring film-makers, cartoonists, authors, and actors as well. Beyond YouTube are online venues like UndergroundFilm, a site that allows independent film makers to post videos to be viewed, rated, and critiqued by film consumers across the world.
