Objective

Cinema is a product, an entertainment tool but also art in motion, with consequences on discourse, practices of use and consumption. If the formats are dependent of innovation, the contents are dependent of the social sphere and of market requirements in constant mutation. Thus, the only solution is to make audiovisual and cinema products with a quality level able to support the time and changing formats - a format results from agents technology activity, a content supply needs.
