1st article in our 5 week series on Film Industry Implosion
Recently, at USC and the San Francisco International Film Festival filmmakers have spoken out about the current state of cinema and even gone as far as to predict a “Film Industry Implosion.” Perhaps, this is true but many believe this is all an overreaction. So we are going to spend the next five weeks focusing on this very topic. But first we will look into what these well-known filmmakers Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Steven Soderbergh are saying about the current state of cinema. So let’s get started!
Today many believe studios are spending more on marketing campaigns than on producing good films.

Will audiences soon pay big bucks for cinematic action films and save their money on dramas and biopics for the small screen? Please watch the videos below to hear the full discussion.
