Hollywood Shift ~ Streaming Economy

Commentary by Mitch Santell

From 1913 until 2013 the traditional Hollywood system ruled the industry. Now, the old studio system was gone by 1960, but there were definite lines between the film studios, the film executives, the distributors and the marketing companies.

The technology is there, access to the market it more natural and there is a lot of talent you can call upon if you have VISION and FOCUS.

Everyone is now getting into the content creation business. It is getting more and more confusing as to who the leading content creators will be in the future.

It is not just that Netflix along with Amazon Prime, HBO, Lifetime and others are creating their original content, it is that these technology companies know how to use SEO, Algorithms, and the big elephant in the room; Streaming.

100 Million Prime
Amazon is creating original content and then STREAMING IT!

According to NICK BILTON:

When Netflix started creating its own content, in 2013, it shook the industry. The scariest part for entertainment executives wasn’t simply that Netflix was shooting and bankrolling TV and film projects, essentially rendering irrelevant the line between the two. (Indeed, what’s a movie without a theater? Or a show that comes available in a set of a dozen episodes?) The real threat was that Netflix was doing it all with the power of computing. Soon after House of Cards’ remarkable debut, the late David Carr presciently noted in the Times, “The spooky part . . . ? Executives at the company knew it would be a hit before anyone shouted ‘action.’ Big bets are now being informed by Big Data.”

When I first read the above paragraph it blew my mind but then Nick Bilton hit on an even more significant issue:

Hollywood executives may invoke their unique skills, but engineers are unlikely to see things quite that way. We generally assume that artificial intelligence poses a risk to lower-skilled jobs, such as trucking or driving cabs. But the reality is that the creative class will not be unharmed by software and artificial intelligence. Researchers at M.I.T.’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory are looking at ways to teach computers how to corral information so as to perceive occurrences before they even happen. At present, this application anticipates events that will move markets, or monitors security cameras to help emergency responders before something tragic occurs.

The most prominent bombshell was this prediction:

Kim Libreri, who spent years in the film industry working on special effects for films such as The Matrix and Star Wars, predicts that by 2022 graphics will be so advanced that they will be “indistinguishable from reality.” In some respects, that is already on the verge of happening. If you watched Rogue One, you will have noticed that Peter Cushing appeared as one of the main actors in the film, which was shot last year in London. Cushing, who died in 1994, was (mostly) rendered in C.G.I. The same was true for Princess Leia, played by the late Carrie Fisher, who has a cameo at the end. The C.G.I.-enhanced version of herself hasn’t aged a day since 1977. “While stars used to be able to make a movie, now they can hurt it,” one Hollywood producer lamented to me. His outlook resembled Moritz’s: “The movie star, like everything else in Hollywood, is dying.”

Relationships, Family & Your Legacy

Reflections by Mitch Santell

This eight-minute clip of Jordan Peterson has some of the most profound advice that I have heard in a long time as it relates to marriage, family, divorce, commitment and being connected to your life’s purpose.

Camille Paglia and Christina Hoff Sommers Discuss 3rd Wave Feminism

Something discovered by Mitch Santell

Make yourself a fresh cup of coffee or herb tea! This dialogue between Camille Paglia and Christina Hoff Sommers is profound and thought-provoking! OMG, is America now the new Rome?

Check out this clip, I have deep respect for both of these feminists as I was raised by a 1st wave feminist, my Mom!

Can we admit the truth? In the grand scheme of things, sexual relations between men and women has never been worse.  

Guess who is now in the closet? Heterosexual men and God forbid any of us straight guys to have the nerve to flirt with a woman!


Although 97% of the population is not gay, there is relatively little cultural support for heterosexual institutions (family, motherhood, fatherhood); roles (masculinity and femininity); and life events (courtship, marriage, birth and child rearing.)

Although building a strong family is probably the purpose of life and key to happiness for most, this knowledge is kept under wraps. Millions of dollars are spent to make women find careers but not a dime to become mothers. On the contrary, women who devote their lives to family are criticized.

If you search “heterosexual” in Google, you will get 16 million citations. Search “homosexual” and you get more than 20 million citations, pretty good for 3% of the population. (“Lesbian” got 10 million.)

Per capita “homosexual” received 100 times the citations “heterosexual” got. “Homosexuality” (10.7 million citations) got roughly 11 times the citations of “heterosexuality” (990,000.) Per capita, homosexuality got 3500 times more citations than “heterosexuality.”

The fact that the word “heterosexuality” is in rare use is a shocking illustration of the cultural vacuum the non-gay majority inhabits. Our majority “default” status doesn’t explain it. In terms of cultural support, non-gays are being starved or as I will suggest later, poisoned.

Another example. There are 21 times as many used books listed with the Advanced Booksellers Exchange under the keyword “homosexuality” as “heterosexuality” (24233 to 1154). Per cap this means there are 6750 references to homosexuality for every one to heterosexuality .

Why Was Sean Hannity Attacked Today?

Insightful Delusions by Mitch Santell

Sean Hannity who has been in syndication on radio and tell-lie-vision for many years is a real hero to me. Why? Answer: He stands up for what he believes. Now, you may not be like-minded with him; each time I listen to him (which is not daily because of @BigReggaeMix), I am impressed with how authentic he is with his remarks.

Sean Hannity Standing Up for What He Believes In

Here is what he had to say on the air today as a result of being named in court. What do I do? I listen, read, observe and take a zen-like non-attachment to what is happening at the moment. Crazy is the new normal!

The audio clip is 49 seconds.

 

Parting shot: It’s all a big show that is presented to you as a lovely entertainment.

The purpose of your future

You cannot predict the future and can’t change your past, so all you can do is BE, HERE, NOW! We have a responsibility as a society to our teenagers to support them in their dreams too!!

Maya Willemse

As a teenager, I think there’s a lot of pressure on your future plans. People will always ask what you want to be when you’re grown up, even kids of a few years old are asked that question! But how could you possibly know what you’re future will be like when the future is so many years away?

There’s nobody that can answer this question with a 100% certainty. In the years to come, a lot of things will change about your circumstances and about yourself. You will make mistakes and you will learn from it, you will discover yourself more and more. It’s okay if you don’t know what you’re going to do in the future. And there’s no need to feel ashamed of that or to feel like you have no purpose.

Purpose is something we all struggle with. We only have a number of years on this…

Finding your purpose

Finding your purpose in your 20’s is a major completion. Want to jump-start your life? Make a list of jobs you would hate to do and you are halfway there.

Dainty Diaries

As 20 something year olds, we often tell ourselves that this is our transition period. That this is when we wait. Wait till our dream job finds us, our magical spouse sweeps us off our feet, our bank populates itself enough so we take a trip to the Caribbean, and that everything that happens in between is temporary. Because 30 is the new 20, right?

Wrong. It really isn’t. Yes, maybe now that humans live for longer (and can possibly become immortal in the next 50 years), have their health for longer, have longer term retirement plans, our 20 year old selfs aren’t exactly in a hurry to buy a house, and become a CEO. But we can’t swish through life and on our 30th birthday magically wake up successful, with a Lamborghini in the driveway and a man grilling sausages in the beautifully trimmed front lawn…

The mask of social media..

Read an essential commentary on social media in 2018. The bottom line is that the more authentic you are online, the more real your social media experience will be with real like-minded followers.

Anxiety The Bitch

Love it. Hate it. Social media today is as much a part of our lives as the very air we breathe. Not to imply that it is essential to survive, but remove a teenagers phone from them and they will get withdrawals. Just like they would if you were addicted to smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol. I know this because I am a teenager. As we speak, I am portraying a message to you over the means of a computer screen. Where are the days where one would simply hold a conversation with somebody in the flesh? How have we let our world be consumed by the beautiful monster which is social media itself? It’s simple really; we can all be someone different online.

I’m not talking about being a catfish; pretending to have a completely different identity than what we were born with. I’m talking about the mask of…

The Smallest Moments Mean The Most

Written by Mitch Santell

Today was one of those fantastic days where it all went wrong, and it all went perfectly. Today felt like a long week. Have you had days like that? There is a flow to life if you can tune into it. Every day I still see the good and kindness in people. The ones I mainly respect can move through the world without a “chip on their shoulder.”

You do not see the world the way the world is, you see the world the way “you are.”

Yesterday as I was driving around my local town running errands I noticed that my wife’s van was barely starting over each time I turned on the engine. I did not know if it was the battery or the alternator. One of those errands included making a simple deposit at my bank.

As always, I make it a point to be kind to people I meet in public. Kindness is my style, and I have been this way my whole life. With each person I met at my bank branch I smiled warmly and just went about my business.

the word can't
Respect yourself first and stop acting like a victim!

When I returned to the van and tried to leave, the car was dead. One of the young men I had smiled at immediately offered to give me a jump-start. Grabbing a jumper cable out of the trunk of his car, a woman in a brand new Lexus SUV starts to pull into the parking spot between our vehicles.

Quickly and quietly motioning to her, I motioned for her to roll her window down but she refused. Again, I smiled and mouthed as best I could “to please move over to another parking spot so I can start my van.” You could tell she was upset and my feeling was it had nothing to do with me.  My kindness helped me move past her anger and allowed me to start my vehicle.

The young man kindly helped me start my van. Afterward, as a small way of thanking him, I handed him a 20 dollar bill. He smiled, seemed very grateful and went on with his day.

By nature, I always look at how to accomplish the most with the fewest steps. Later this same day, I had to purchase a brand new battery. While I never told my wife of the incident that happened earlier in the day, the man who sold us a new vehicle battery and installed it did so with a smile on his face and a happy heart.

small moments
Small Moments Mean The Most

Most people will show you their best self when you show your best self. When they can’t show their best self, be the bigger person and be kind because it is the right thing to do.

My take? Be kind, stop acting like a victim and be the best version of yourself!

Steven Soderbergh Films on an iPhone

Commentary and Amazement by Mitch Santell

Throughout my time on this Earth, I have enjoyed watching the shift in technology. Always an early adapter, I’ll admit that my iPhone 7Plus is my very first iPhone just because I didn’t want to become an iPhone Zombie. These days I keep my iPhone 7Plus handy, but it’s Messenger and FaceTime that keep me sane on my iMac using a full keyboard.

Steven Soderbergh is onto something with his statement that he would only shoot on an iPhone. Here is the official trailer for Unsane:

If you have ever doubted that you could make a full-length feature film on an iPhone, think again, it can be done.

Here is a clip I shot on my iPhone 7Plus right in the heart of Hollywood. The clip you will see is only 51 seconds. With the right editing, the possibilities are endless! A special thank you to Filmora, an easy to use video editing package for the Macintosh.


(Side note: If you do not need the extended features of Final Cut Pro, filmora is a great alternative. Why? Sometimes less is more)!
