No Film School…. I guess it should also be No Proof Reading. How does a headline like that not only slip by and get published, but stay up for four days and counting without being corrected?
I kind of thought I was having a stroke trying to watch that. It was nearly impossible to do and all but pointless. The images are such short flashes and the “Whedon Cut” trailer was mostly black with the very occasional flash of an image(maybe a 1:20 ratio?). Side by side still frame grabs would have been MUCH more effective at actually trying to compare the looks.
Slight correction to the article. One of the Venice’s was on a Steadicam, the second was on a Movi Pro.
“Quibi's Dead. How Did $1.75B Turn into a Black Screen?“
The blunt answer... Because it was a dumb idea. I want longer episodes and more in-depth content and I think a lot of others feel the same way. People regularly watch three, four, five hours or more continuously of a single program now, because of our ability to binge a program and all it’s episodes from the streamers. They don’t want a two minute(being slightly facetious) TV show. They want to watch HOURS of it.
Is this RedShark News? A headline that's a question with an article that seems like it was chopped off only a quarter of the way in and with no real information. I've received text messages longer than this "article" and they were much more informative.
Definitely not a new trick. I’ve been shooting racing since the 90’s and the pit crews would pop a tiny hole in a can or bottle or two of Coke and spray it all around in the pit box so they could get extra traction during pit stops. Same thing, just a few orders of magnitude difference.
