The Day The Movies Died

A few months back, I read this amazing article from GQ about how priorities and preferences at the executive level have drastically shifted the film industry in the last 20+ years. Do you want to know why Hollywood execs no longer greenlight original stories? Why our only options are remake after remake, comic book film after comic book film? Well, read this article. It was beyond interesting and has caused me to begin reexamining my future goals in film.

  3. I really enjoy reading your blog!

  4. Discovered you through BGLH (Black Girl Long Hair), which featured the "Stare Master" video.

    Your hair is gorgeous!! Stay beautiful and all the best in the future.

  5. Comic book movies and sequels or threequels are dominating these days at the box office but there are still great movies being made. The article pointed out Darren Aronofsky as one of the stand out directors recently. Jason Reitman, Kathryn Bigelow, Cary Fukanaga tell some great stories through their films. Just curious, how are you approaching films now?

  6. Thank you all for the comments/heads up! I'm sorry for the delayed response.

    @Muvis, the article really helped push me to start thinking more about the type of career that I want to have in film and what types of movies may be available for me. It also strengthened my resolve to break ground in TV. Many of Hollywood's best writers are starting to turn to TV as a creative outlet. There seems to be more freedom of expression on TV.
