Future of Films?




The film industry has been evolving for decades. When I think of the future in regards to movie theaters and the evolution of the film process I can only wonder. There have been many wonderful movies and many great ideas. We have to ask ourselves what we think the future is. I’m sure we all wonder at times about the future of the film industry. If you ask me I believe the industry has come an extremely long way since the beginning of silent films.

Many screenwriters and producers feel that the future of films will still be around but perhaps in a different form. The idea of bigger screens and less theaters with higher prices gets closer every day. The media industries as a whole if you ask me are all full of surprises.

When you go to the movie theater it just about cost on average $20.00 per person. Depending on the location and the type of film (IMAX or 3D) the cost can vary. This does not include drink or food prices. The last time I took my family to a film it cost close to $100.00.

Take a moment and look at the interesting article of what the pros think about the future of the film industry in regards to filmmakers and moviegoers (ClickHere).

Now that you have read the article I encourage you to let me know what you think. Do you think that these pros are correct about the future? What do you think the future of the industry will be like? I would hate to think that our movie experience would be like a ‘Broadway’ play. There are many ideas. What do you think about the future of 3D films?

Check out this article I found on 3D films (ClickHere). The film industry are coming out with more advanced graphics and the rise of the digital age is amongst us. Filmmakers play a whole new role in creation. Do you think this role is harder or easier?

Please as always, leave your comments below.

  1. “We’re never going to be totally immersive as long as we’re looking at a square, whether it’s a movie screen or whether it’s a computer screen. We’ve got to get rid of that and we’ve got to put the player inside the experience, where no matter where you look you’re surrounded by a three-dimensional experience. That’s the future.” (Spielberg, 2014)
    When I read this quote from Steven Spielberg I was completely in agreement. I feel that the movie industry has to stop thinking about a movie being a blank canvas and start visualizing how to get the audience to become part of the experience. Now a days it's not about just sitting in a movie theater and just watching the screen, its about how you can get that same audience and indulge them by making them feel like they are part of this amazing fantasy world.
    I'm very intrigued on how the future will revolutionize the film industry. First there was 3D, then IMAX and even Holograms. What could be next? Only time and the future will have all of the answers for us.

    Great post, I really enjoyed your view and research on the matter.
