Bonus

I love all my subscribers. And I think you’ll need something to read when you’re on a break:

Hollywood Grapples With Layoffs, Redefines Itself for Streaming Future

NB. This isn’t a surprise. There’s more profit to be made when you stream your product directly to your fans. Instead of showing them elsewhere. Also, you are starting to see the movie distributors flex their muscles against the movie theater industry: less time a movie will be shown in the movie theaters. Expect to see movie budgets cut to take advantage of DTC (direct to consumer). Example: do I need to spend $400m US to make and market a movie? Or can I do the same thing for $200m US? And get the same return on equity (ROE).

Author: Research King

My real name is Nick but my clients call me the Research King. Why? Because I love researching and finding information. And they’re literally amazed when I find the information for them. I love analyzing how technology influences the media and entertainment world. Because the media and entertainment industry is constantly changing. And technology is playing a big role in changing it (from CD’s to live-streaming). Finally, I love coffee, going to the gym/working out and anything to do with athletic leisure clothing (I’m a big Lululemon fan). P.S.
