Great article. I hope the doc makes its way to Brazil.
(also I'm so glad I caught this piece before the comment section turned into a cesspool)
While the idea of a social media directed towards filmmakers sounds good (although I didn't see a mention to community forum boards in the description), I think the whole thing with the filmmakers being almost indebted to deliver backstage material isn't attractive. I like Patreon because you can establish your own rewards. Not everyone has the time or manpower to deliver regular backstage videos or organize production notes to be published while still focusing on the main product. And online patronage should be about making sure the final product gets delivered. It could be about people collaborating with colleagues and people they admire, and this allows for people to feel like they're the bosses of the creators and like they're owed more than the final product. Don't think it's ideal for people who can barely work around finishing a short.
I thought this would be the latest nerdwriter video. Another interesting little work about the concept of time travels, where it came from and why it's so prevalent.
That's already a reality in Brazil. Prices are different for weekends, mondays and tuesdays, and wednesdays, which are the cheapest days and the days in which I go to the movies because I'm a college student with a lot of free time. Besides me, it's usually just old people (I call them "bingo sessions"). Apart from that, some theaters also have cheaper prices before 6pm. I don't know how well these tactics do, tho.
yes to all of the words above
No, she asked that because it's easy to dismiss the concerns of the opressed when you never saw elements of your culture be denied to you while white people are praised for using these same elements.
