It’s that time of year again, to look back at the past 12 months, assess the highs and the lows, and maybe make a quip or two while doing so. Look for more from our annual year-end survey here at Realscreen.com and in our upcoming January/February issue. We continue our look at the year that was with Ari Mark, co-founder of AMPLE Entertainment.

My favorite factual program/series (or feature documentary) of 2019 was:
Of Fathers & Sons.

I never thought they’d make a program about:
Tiny food.

The program/series/doc people will be talking about in five years is:
The one that exposes all the awful stuff that those politicians did.

In 18 months, no one will be talking about:
Fyre Fest.

The best factual content I’ve seen online this year was:
Greta Thunberg.

The most positive development in the non-fiction/unscripted content industry this past year was:
Phil Lott’s wardrobe.

The most troubling development in the non-fiction/unscripted content industry this past year was:
More reboots.

The idea I wish I thought of was:
Netflix.

The idea I’m happiest to have had this year was:
A Rabbinical competition series.

If 2019 taught me one thing it was:
Don’t eat an entire package of those Starbucks chocolate covered coffee beans right before a pitch.

The buzzword I don’t want to hear in 2020 is:
Digital.

My New Year’s resolution for 2020 is:
Do better.
