Amazon has the same system. You are buying movies(purchase), but in reality you do not. Read the licensing agreement.
First to NFS. Please, stop publishing these self loving/congratulatory/promotional "articles" with Kickstarter push.
David, please write your books, make your films and let other people decide if they are any good. Stop all this BS about - as good or better than multi-million dollar productions. You are missing the point. Big studio productions are not just a lot of money, but a lot of TALENT and KNOWLEDGE on all levels. There is no person, I've ever heard of, who can do everything on the same level as many truly talented and professional creators with years of experience. There is a big reason movies produced and created by teams of many pros. It doesn't mean people shouldn't make their own films, they absolutely must, that's how everybody starts in all professions. Your pompous tone of self-genius will only confuse some people and upset others.
I completely agree. It looked weird and destructing from actors performances. I am sure at some point technology will be capable to create convincing aging and de-aging, but it is not there yet. It's a shame it was used in The Irishman.
Theatrical experience is extremely important for creators and for spectators. Postcards will never replace looking at real art in a museum, music in a live concert is very different experience from music at home on a couch. I invite all possible distributions, but it's important to understand that watching movie on a phone during bus ride is a waist...
Nice video with Rebecca. I have a few stories about craftsmanship too. Good luck.
