Why we work with Media & Entertainment

The media landscape is becoming increasingly complex. As the production and consumption of media accelerates, more and more sources of information, news and entertainment are competing for access to our limited mind space. We increasingly experience and engage with the world around us through media technology, and the individual has gone from being a passive media recipient to an active media prosumer. On a societal level, issues surrounding trust, polarisation, media literacy and the nature of truth in a networked reality are central to understanding the future of media.
