I always say, when watching TV (NEVER go to movies), that if aliens came here from another planet and looked at OUR media (TV, magazines, sports, film, radio, etc.) ... they'd never know there were any Caucasians on this planet
Why would anyone want to associate themselves with the open sewer known as Hollywood ?
I see the next big change in Hollywood as going back to an older system.
In the 1980s, Cannon Films, Golan-Globus, had a spectacular formula of cranking out low budget, no-name actor movies, many direct to VHS. They figured that if just one in a dozen was a hit, it would pay for the whole dozen, and the next dozen. And they were more than right. They had some of the highest profit margins in the industry.
Simple math. A movie that costs $100m and makes $120m is *less* profitable than a movie that costs $1m and makes $26m.
But this same rule could apply even more so in television.
Right now, television production is limited to a tiny number of shows with the same actors. Very high budget for television.
However, if some studio returned to “golden age” production values, with everyone involved in the production working for scale, they could hire huge numbers of actors, writers, musicians, production people, etc., and produce a tidal wave of content, going directly into syndication.
Lots of vignette shows like the original Twilight Zone, with the idea that lots of people get *some* work, instead of just a few getting all the work, with most getting nothing. At first most of the profits would be plowed back into production, but soon the margins would be huge.
Yeah, and there are not enough whites in the NBA. So what?
I don’t even know who she is,what she looks like,or what she does.
Actually one of the stronger singers at the time, but I lost interest in her when she transformed. I liked her original self.
