You can’t deny that the internet has drastically changed our world. Almost every area of our lives have changed as a result of its adaptation. If you think telephones and airplanes made our globe smaller, the internet shrank it many more times.
Now we can communicate with the world via text, photos, music, and video. The internet has caused us to adapt our way of life, including how we conduct business and connect with others. The Internet has had a significant impact on the movie industry, not only in terms of how movies are marketed and seen but also in terms of how people enter and exit the industry.
It is beneficial to you if you want to pursue cinema as a career; there was a narrow path to follow to get there, one that required a lot of face-to-face networking and the payment of “dues.” Unless they went to school to get access to the technology or grew up on the set, most people in the industry could not make independent films, much less have them viewed. Some of them could not make the necessary connections unless they moved to Hollywood and got lucky with a job on a movie set doing whatever they wanted.
Nowadays, getting into the movie business still requires a lot of networking and dues-paying, but the internet has significantly changed how that appears, with accessibility being the most major difference. The internet, when combined with the advent of low-cost digital technology, has made it much easier for almost anyone to create a video project and have it seen. Anyone with a camera can now post a video on sites like YouTube and Vimeo, and computers also have editing skills to let anyone “tweak” their projects and make them appear better. Finally, millions of ambitious filmmakers who would not otherwise be able to get their work noticed may now do so on their own.
