The Good And The Bad In FilmBiz2014: Initial Dose

Posted By Ted Hope On December 2, 2014 @ 3:37 pm In Issues and Actions | 5 Comments

We are trying something a wee bit different this year. Instead of launching with a massive list of either the good and the bad, I’ve teamed up with some partners to help distribute the news.  What’s good or bad in the film biz in 2014? Well check out Film Comment for ten good [1] (complete with swell photo selection) and check out Keyframe for ten bad [2]. Tomorrow, Keyframe will break with some more, and Filmmaker Magazine will join for good measure. And then come the end of the week, I will add to each of the lists here.  Woo hoo!

Much appreciated.

Good:

#2. It might take an exhibitor rebellion or an Ellison (Megan, David or Larry) or another technopus leviathan to enter the theatrical exhibitor market.

Bad:

#1. The movie business is a pillar in the news/entertainment trust: publishing, TV, film, sports (look at the NBA/Disney deal) which, in turn, interlocks with the other giant, self-regulating trusts. A lot of money and social engineering effort has been spent creating this (our national and international false consciousness). Formidable.

#2. Not until the Disney/Marvel business model: B2B profits equal B2C transactional and subscription profits, begins to repeatedly fail.

In the Desert
By Stephen Crane

In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, “Is it good, friend?”
“It is bitter—bitter,” he answered;

“But I like it
“Because it is bitter,
“And because it is my heart.”

I was hooked on this verse. I really love poetry and sometimes when inspiration comes I write poetry, for this I even started a blog [5]. I really like to inspire people.
