UNBOUND Wins Film Festival Award

Hot on the heels of five nominations at the Austin Arthouse Film Festival, it was revealed that UNBOUND took the laurel for Best Arthouse Film, the top prize at the event at their ceremony on October 20th.

This statement was read at the Festival on behalf of the producers:
Thanks first and foremost go to David Bowie, for being the artist he was and for allowing us to contribute to the extended universe of his canon with our film  
Thank you, Liz, Giselle and everyone at Austin Arthouse Film Festival for recognizing UNBOUND. Congratulations to all of the other nominees whose films were included in the Festival.  
Austin is a special place for the film. Before tonight, the only other public screening of the complete work was also here in town – at SxSW – as part of a panel we did during the promotion of the film.  
Thank you to Bill Zysblat and Coco Schwab, David’s trusted friends and advisors whose early support set in motion the events that led to UNBOUND. Thank you to Betsy Whitney and Mike Matthewson at Columbia Records and Sony Music. 
Thank you to the wonderful on-screen performers Tavi Gevinson, Patricia Clarkson, Jonah Herman, Daniel Rysak, Ching Valdes-Anan and Jay Knowles as well as the musicians, dancers and other on-screen talent. Thank you also to David’s fans, especially the community on his official website,

Spotify Is No Netflix But Has a Chance to Soar Beyond Pandora

Served as a primary source in a research report from Blueshift Research.

"Blueshift’s initial research found strong revenue and subscriber growth in SPOT’s first earnings report as a public company but also some question marks around profitability and revenue per user. SPOT’s success and growing influence in the music industry has led to some comparisons to NFLX, but content control and costs remain huge obstacles. SPOT also faces formidable competition from AAPL, GOOG/GOOGL, AMZN, and others...What are the biggest threats to SPOT’s subscriber growth? Can SPOT get control over content costs and improve gross margins? How can SPOT differentiate itself from rivals like AAPL and AMZN? Can SPOT become as dominant in streaming music as NFLX is in video? To answer these and other questions, Blueshift will gather data and issue a market research report from independent sources in the following areas: Record labels and publishers, Content creators and brokers, Competitors, and Industry specialists."
