A note for Blackmagic: Now is your chance! Release a full-frame pocket 4k pro with an ef mount all for like... $2k like you do. You have treated us all so well by cutting the bs and allowing us to shoot raw straight onto $80 1tb SSDs. If you can see it in your heart to give us full frame with ef we will give you all our money. Maybe throw in filters if you feel like we truly deserve it, no prob if not :) I love you.
I wish they would! But I think a big part of why they can't do both is because movie theaters don't want to pay, and give up a screen, to receive a movie that isn't exclusively in theaters. Knowing that a movie is also on streaming puts the theater at risk of not selling as many tickets.
So the next time some big wig that works for a streaming company tells you that theaters are dying because people aren't going to see movies, point them to this and then kick them in the nutz. Then go see a movie! :)
I think it's a weird balance because If we continue to make cool movies that we want to see in the world, then the cool movies will never die. And even though an audience is important, I think it's WAY more important to express yourself through your art for personal gratification. The industry should only be driven by the filmmakers desire to make cool stuff.
The industry is built on people who don't make movies convincing us that our art works as a market and we, the filmmakers, need to be worried about making people money.
While I think you're completely correct, because your points reflect how the industry is today. The idea I wanted to point towards is that some people need a complete mindset reset of why we make "cinema". My hope is that more people look at their art through the lens of the punk rock ethos. As crazy as that sounds haha!!
What a lot of people seem to forget is that we, the filmmakers, ARE the industry. The industry is nothing without us. The market will bend to whatever we do.
Awesome, original, "cinema" movies will never die if you, the individual, never stop watching/creating/seeking out awesome, original, "cinema" movies. Simple as that. Why the fuck should anyone care what anyone else thinks when it comes to this?
I think your reason is the most accurate!
Great director and actors, but it just didn't seem that interesting, believable, or... original. And it kinda perpetuated a lot of problematic aspects that huge budget, Hollywood movies tend to hang their hat on. So we have no choice but to vote with our dollars for the better ideas.
Haha, okay mr. insecure, why don't you tell us more about how insecure you are.
Always funny when a man can't handle something not being about him for two seconds haha!!
