It drives me crazy that online movie clips stop and start irregularly, depending on what else is happening over the network and within my local operating system.
Today’s invention is a new way to script movies designed specifically to be watched over a limited bandwidth web connection, without the usual stuttering.
New scripts would consist of a series of discrete, punchy scenes. Each of these would be shown only after it was downloaded in full.
In this way, you could watch a long movie as a series of unfragmented events, separated by a minute or so if necessary.
This would change the nature of filmwatching somewhat, but would greatly reduce the frustration.
