Is This the Future of Entertainment News? Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation Report

Okay, so this "update" about MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE -- ROGUE NATION is a little late, but lateness isn't really an issue here, and there's a reason for that.

Having not fired up my non-linear editor (NLE) since moving to Philly, I wanted to shake off the cobwebs with a little finger exercise that'd take me through most of the processes I typically use in editing a video. I started thinking about where digital content delivery is going -- the Playstations, the Rokus, your various and sundry iPhones -- and wondering what would it be like if you could sit down after a hard day and summon up a short, customized news update about the stuff you're interested in, delivered with a unique style and tone that doesn't have to cater to a broad audience. What would that look like?

This two-minute report is my attempt to find out.
