The next wave of cinematic innovations | Audiovisual | Creative Bloq | Future of Films | Scoop.it

Shazrina Ali's insight:

In the future, we can anticipate movies to go back to basic; to bring more people back to the theaters.

Shazrina Ali's insight:

Who would have thought that costly lighting equipment can be replaced by flashlights? As LED lights are more powerful, with the proper rigs, gadgets, techniques and a little bit of imagination, flashlights work as well as professional lighting equipments without compromising the quality. With flashlights costing less than a fraction of what professional lighting would cost, they are definitely useful for budding film-makers who are on a tight budget.

Movie piracy: threat to the future of films intensifies

Movie piracy: threat to the future of films intensifies | Future of Films | Scoop.it

"Almost 30% of Britons are now watching movies illegally online or buying counterfeit DVDs, costing the industry £500m a year"

Shazrina Ali's insight:

Despite the scale of movie piracy, the importance of its eradication is often ignored. This is because major studios do not get affected much by it. However, for independent film-makers, such piracy is a huge threat. These film-makers and producers depends on distributors to financed their films. As much as the we think an individual act of piracy can be ignored, in the long run, such content creation could become obsolete.

LISTEN: Steven Soderbergh on 'What's Killing Cinema,' A Fungible Algorithm (PODCAST)

LISTEN: Steven Soderbergh on 'What's Killing Cinema,' A Fungible Algorithm (PODCAST) | Future of Films | Scoop.it

"There is a difference between movies and cinema.  In cinema, there's a specificity of vision, an approach in which everything matters.  If this filmmaker didn't do it, it wouldn't exist.  An acclaimed movie may not qualify as cinema.  And cinema could be an unwatchable piece of shit.  But it's not made by a 'company'"

Shazrina Ali's insight:

Soderbegh is basically appalled  at how the film industry is like today. Citing that the problem lays with the Studio. There is a difference between movies and cinema, that is even if cinema is not acclaimed, it is not produced by the Studio. When it comes to movies, It seems that films are not longer an art-form. Instead, film-making is motivated by profit and loss. As mentioned by Soderbegh, the Studio runs on a 'fungible algorithm' that is, unexplained numbers which raise questions.
