Online Film Boutique Curates Unique High-Quality Editions: The Criterion Collection

Online Film Boutique Curates Unique High-Quality Editions: The Criterion Collection | Content Curation World |
Robin Good's insight:

The Criterion Collection is an online specialty shop that offers selected films that have been individually licensed, re-mastered to digital for highest quality (Blu-Ray) and bundled with unique additional materials including video interviews, uncut scenes, commentary tracks and additional features.

To give a practical example, you can find the recent Oscar winning The Great Beauty in a uniquely remastered 2K edition, bundled with:

  • New conversation between Sorrentino and Italian cultural critic Antonio Monda
  • New interview with actor Toni Servillo
  • New interview with screenwriter Umberto Contarello
  • Deleted scenes
  • Trailer
  • New English subtitle translation
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Phillip Lopate

Each film release at Criterion is a true work of curation: "Each film release has a producer who oversees the entire process, from restoration to supplemental features to packaging. The producer researches available materials, conceives of original supplements, and decides which features truly add value to the appreciation of the film."

Navigation and content discovery inside the Criterion Collection is facilitated by a set of curated galleries organized around 1) top 10 titles lists, 2) authors / directors, 3) themes / topics

At Criterion, you can also create your own online collections of favourite films, by selecting and saving your preferred ones into custom lists.

Criterion is a wonderful example of how much value can be added to existing content, even where, like in a film release, you would think that nothing, beyond the packaging can be added.

The Curated Set Model: Socially Curated Structured Sets Growing Fast

The Curated Set Model: Socially Curated Structured Sets Growing Fast | Content Curation World |

Robin Good: In an ocean of possibly relevant information, what interests us most beyond the infinite stories and gossip inside our social graph, is what is relevant and close to our own specific interests.

Excerpted from Bari's blog at Netsquared: "It seems we may finally be ready to acknowledge that we are already too bloated to gorge on what the Internet can and will feed us non-stop if we let it.

Like my two-year old son, I am forced to accept that I will have to get some structure and discipline in my life (online). And like my son, I may at first resist that structure, in my case due to some vague but deep-seated notions of freedom, liberty, democracy and whatnot. But at the end of the day, I know it’s good for me.

Might I actually like the structured rabbit hole with some guiding lights on its walls? It does give me some sense of control and direction about where I am going."

Right-on-the-mark. 7/10
