The B&E Podcast #034
“Movie Studios & The Art of the Blockbuster”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
We discuss the pros and cons of the big studio system and how it’s not necessarily any better or worse than any other level of production, just different. We also examine the things we can learn from the studio system and how we can help make our industry healthier and more collaborative.
POINT #1: “THOSE BIG BLOCKBUSTERS CAN TEACH YOU”
-A lot of these big movies and trends in movies can tell you a lot about what’s going on in the world right now. What are audiences identifying with?
POINT #2: “EVERYONE HAS A PASSION ONE WAY OR ANOTHER”
-Some people are business people and some are artistic. If you’re collaborating with each other, ask how you can help the other. It’s a much healthier way of working than being defensive and on guard.
POINT #3: “FINDING THE MIDDLE GROUND”
-There are studios, production companies, and fully independents. They each have benefits and suit different stories better than others. Which end of the spectrum do you fit with?
