NetFlix, Hulu, and the Future of Eventful Moviegoing Experience
A movie, also popularly known as a movie script, short film, video, or digital movie, is a creative work of visual arts intended to convey ideas, themes, representations, emotions, beauty, or ambiance through the medium of moving pictures. Although the term “moviemaker” applies to different types of artists who create movies, it has more often than not been applied to screenwriters and directors. While there are some genres of movies that have had decades of popularity, many newer movies are quickly forgotten because of their visuals and other elements. It is for this reason that movie scripts are an essential part of the movie industry. They can be written by any screenwriter/filmmaker and can even be produced by any one with enough vision.
Movie scripts are often written as stand-alone novels that follow a specific character, theme or plotline. However, some movies often contain multiple characters who are brought together by the story or the director in order to tell stories about the interactions among them. The main characters in motion pictures are usually the protagonist, the antagonist, and the various other supporting characters. The plots of most movies also follow some basic structure. Most movies that are successful are based on a large number of human interaction, and so it is common for plots in movies to take the shape of family, friendship, romance, war, and many other intra-personal relationships.
Motion pictures are made to entertain, to tell stories or to make a point. While all movies have these goals, motion pictures especially those of the Hollywood type often take on the characteristics of a film novelette: they are produced for commercial release and are intended to entertain as well as tell stories. As such, almost every motion picture released by Hollywood features at least one sequence of complex human interaction. Moreover, movie studios invest a lot of money and effort into creating special effects that often result in the appearance of extraordinary visual effects.
On the other hand, filmmakers who are producing small independent films often rely on non-traditional means to finance their projects. In this case, such filmmakers use online websites such as Netflix and Hulu to promote their short films. While some movie theaters have also adapted to net streaming technology, recent successes of movies like Okja highlighted the potential of Netflix and other similar Internet services to increase revenues for the studios that produce the content.
Netflix is one of the best sources of independent and low budget movies and independent films. Recently, Netflix started offering original television series exclusively on its site. The first series to be launched was the political action drama “The New Yorker Presents: The New York Project,” a spin-off of the popular BBC show “The New York Times Show.” The success of “The New York Project” led Netflix to expand its collection of short-form television shows and launch original documentaries as well. As a result, the company now has dozens of original programs that it streams globally on the company’s website.
Meanwhile, studios that produce blockbuster movies are increasingly dependent on traditional film distribution channels to promote their movies. Studios like Disney, which owns both Walt Disney studios and Pixar, have been aggressively marketing their films to viewers through the acquisition of streaming websites like Hulu and Netflix. Disney has also started licensing its own movies for release on the net. If successful, this strategy may be an excellent model for upcoming indie feature films to maximize their profit potential without having to spend as much on worldwide marketing.
