When asked if he thought online advertising could influence a digital cultural revolution, he responded, "Absolutely. It's happening right now." When asked for his perspective on Film Annex's initiatives in Afghanistan, he commented,
"I think it's a fantastic idea. Film Annex has the traffic, it has the eyeballs, it definitely has a different perspective than you see in the traditional media. So I'm excited to see Film Annex jump into this arena."

In a similar interview, VP of Video Operations Joseph Salvador agreed with Mr. Ostermiller's input, adding,
"From an advertiser's perspective, it's really interesting. I think right now you have a lot of people who have the power to make change; instead everyone's focused on making money. So it's nice to see someone step outside that box and [look at] how do we use online advertising and social media to actually make a difference in the world. So for me, it's kind of like a breath of fresh air."
Mr. Salvador also expressed high hopes for the power of social and digital media to affect the educational and financial landscape in Afghanistan, to educate Afghan youth, and to participate in the emancipation of Afghan women. View his full interview below.
