Film Studios Vs Online Filmmakers
Since the advent of digital filmmaking, the U.S. film industry has largely been dominated by U.S. film studios. However, with the advent of Internet video, international film producers are challenging the dominance of U.S. film studios. In fact, there is now a shift in the balance of power between U.S. and international film producers. As more producers are taking their products to the Internet, this competition has further increased the level of quality in online videos.
Since the beginning of filmmaking, the U.S. film studios are dominating both the domestic and global film industry. However, with the rise of the Internet, international film producers are now challenging the dominance of U.S. film studios. There are actually several factors that have led to this challenge. First, in order to tap into the international market, the major film studios rely on the major film studios to provide them with distribution rights to allow for wider distribution in other countries. Since the dawn of digital filmmaking U.S. studios are largely benefiting from a strong first-mover advantage over international productions.
As a matter of fact, when an international producer wishes to show their film in an international audience, they must first enter into a film studio system that is already established in that particular country. This can be beneficial, but at the same time, it can be very limiting. Most film studios are too big and have too many resources and staff to manage the international distribution of a film. Moreover, most film studios are large enough that if their resources are used up, the chance of finding a distributor for the film is lessened.
With these two major disadvantages, many independent producers and small film companies have been forced to look elsewhere in order to gain distribution for their films. There are a few companies, however, that have managed to bypass the major studios entirely and produce movies without ever stepping foot in a film studio or production facility. These companies are home-based film production companies and independent producers who have found great success by making independent movies without having to rely on major Hollywood production companies.
A few of these companies are producing movies without ever coming into contact with a major studio. One such company is Lights Camera Pictures where the entire production is done at their home based studios in Encinitas, California. Lights Camera Pictures was founded by three people with experience in marketing, directing, and editing. The company is managed by Greg Garcia, Mark Guidoni, and Steve Kozak.
Another company producing independent motion picture films is Bluegrass Satellite. This independent film production company was started in 1998 by Mark Steyn and Greg Garcia. They decided to start their company after they decided to leave the major film studios and work on their own. The company currently produces a variety of independent films, many of which have received positive reviews from viewers. Bluegrass produces both mainstream and indie films.
The last company I will discuss is Media Trust. Media Trust is a home based, New York based film production company that produces commercial motion picture releases under their own label. Media Trust has been successful because of their focus on producing high-quality commercial motion picture releases that are made with a distinctive style and approach that set them apart from other independent motion picture production studios. Media Trust is managed by Amy Cameron, an actress, writer, and director.
In conclusion, you have to admit that it can be expensive to rent a movie at one of the major studios. It is even more expensive when you have to pay high rental fees for a big blockbuster movie. But if you have ever wanted to produce and release your own independent motion picture, or just make a video to share with friends, then you may want to consider producing your own movie at home instead of renting it from a studio. There are many affordable options out there for anyone who wants to make a video for YouTube, Vimeo, iMovie, Google Video, or Apple iMovie. The production costs are really not that high, and you will end up making more videos for your friends and family in the process.
