Too many years in the business to count. Currently producing streaming series and feature films.
Also, hosting & co-hosting podcasts about filmmaking and mobile filmmaking.
Good question(s). Many of us saw the writing on the wall with the move from film to digital, VHS to DVD, and from DVD to streaming. The fact is, most movies don’t need to be in a theater. TV & streaming are the perfect place for most media. And, as a creator, that is a high class problem to have. We SHOULD be excited when we can get our content, our movies, in front of as many eyeballs as possible. The stigma that TV/cable had years ago has all but been washed away.
Remember when you would have given your left arm to have a movie or series on HBO? Well, it’s all HBO now! We should not think of our projects as being lesser than because they didn’t hit the silver screen. We should instead be resolved to making as good a project as we can, so we can make more... no matter the size of screen.
I submit that your name in pixels is just as good as your name in lights.
