If you have kids, put them on the path to the theater. There are 24,000 employees in the film/screen/ent't industry (per the MPAA, cough, how's that for an end note reference,,, oh! Go ahead, check it out, I'm serious!) and they are associated with an industry that is expanding and will continue to expand until it is finally exposed. All films in 2015 generated $40 billion dollars. U.S. GDP in 2010 was $14 trillion.
Calculator Time ( warning, parental discretion...is advised).
USA GDP $14 trillion, Population: 300 million
Hwood GDP $40 billion, Population: 24,000
Thus, .00008 of the US population generates .00285 of the total output and production. If you care little of decimals, I can translate this for everyone: these are CONSIDERABLE numbers.
Ever ask yourself, "why is amazon going into entertainment,,,into producing content, shows, mini-series, movies? Why is netflix making movies, too?"
Well, you have your answer.
It is disgusting.
Gross domestic product (GDP) is the monetary value of all the finished goods and services produced within a country's borders in a specific time period.
GDP includes all private and public consumption, government outlays, investments and exportsminus imports that occur within a defined territory/region.
Recall last week;s $1.5 billion power ball?
That's the size of New York states annual GDP last year. And it is going to THREE PEOPLE...in one FUC**ING DAY!!!
Moral: Raise your kids to be actors, writers, directors- there will always be work... this is the secret... they are making, collecting, coveting, and keeping all the money. The tip of the pyramid... you'll see it in every movie.
Producers will gauge their thoughts on a director solely upon how creatively he or she can clandestinely incorporating a pyramid into a film without the audience recognizing it.
They don't care about quality... look at all the shitty films they make?
Remember Fargo (1996)? That was a masterpiece. We haven;t seen anything as good as that in decades.
God, help us... this system needs to be fixed.
Hey, not bad.
