Katelynn Wulff Nobu Nobu is a fusion Japanese restaurant and hotel that is inseveral other cities and will now be expanding to Atlanta. I like that thisrestaurant is not like other chains and expand from city to city. But instead, theNobu CEO Trevor Howell said that they only expand to places that they believe”fits with the Nobu consumer”. What is cool about this restaurant is that itsbrand was founded by three guys including the chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Meir Teper,and Robert De Niro.
I think it’s awesome that Robert de Niro is a founder ofthis restaurant because he works in the film industry as an actor, producer, and director. WhichHowell said that they choose Atlanta because Atlanta’s film industry is whatattracted him and that Atlanta the “4M market”. It’s a “4M market because ofall the attractions that are they like “music, movies, models/retail, andmedia”. Howell also said that even when he was flying in he saw that most ofthe people in the first class had a script in hand which shows that the movieindustry plays a big role in Atlanta. But even though they love the role thatthe movie industry plays they will not rely on Hollywood to like the newlocation but instead they will rely on the locals. Which shows that they don’twant to force it on the community but instead they what the community toembrace it on their own and to “turn it into a destination”.
I like that theyare relying on the locals instead of relying on Hollywood because they weredrawn to this city because of it bombing film industry. But it shows that theyhave a lot of respect for what the community thinks which is a good thing for acompany to have. Katelynn Wulff “IndiaFilm Industry Compare to the rest of the World” It was amazing to see that neither the United States orChina wasn’t even close to India in producing featured films. The charts in thearticle that’s on the second page of the print out show that India toweringover US and China and many other countries. While China and US were only makingabout 750 featured films India was making almost 2000 featured fills which isalmost 3 times more them US and China.
India also has the most cinema-goersthan China or any other country. Which is weird because China has more peoplein their country then India. With Indiahaving a population of about 1,309 million and China with 1,397 million whichmeans China has 88 million more the India. According to the chart on page 3 ofthe print out India had 2,016 million admissions while China only had 1,260million which is astonishing because China has so many more people. Even thoughIndia had more cinema-goers they were 4th in the box officeearnings.
With America towering over China, Japan and India with 11.4 billiondollars, China with 6.6 billion dollars, Japan with 2 billion dollars and Indiawith 1.
9 billion dollars. I liked this article a lot because you would neverthink that India would have more moviegoers and produce so many more moviesthen US and China because you never hear about them. How could have thoughtthat a place with a smaller population could draw more people to the cinemathan a country with a bigger population it’s crazy to think about. Katelynn Wulff Padmavati After reading up on this topic to learn more about themovie Padmavati by Sanjay LeelaBhansali. It’s a movie about a 13th-centuryRajput queen of Chittor. It made an uproar in the film industry andmany people are for it and many people are against it. In earlier articles, Isaw one saying that five film industry were going to protest because theybelieve that the movie should be released and that we have the right to releaseit and that it would be an attack on their freedom. But this article I learnedboth sides of the argument and that most people believe that this is a way for”a political party to destroy the freedomto express ourselves”.
While other people were saying that they didn’t like the”distortion of history”. Captain Amarinder Singh said thatyou can’t twist the facts of history and that “nobody had the right to distort history… Those feeling hurt by distortion offacts have the right to protest”. I believe both sides have a point in thiscase. I am a very creative person and If someone told me that I could put outmy artwork because they felt like it wasn’t appropriate I would be angry too.Though I do hate when people try to change the facts of something to makesomething seem more interesting I still feel like t should be released and ifthey don’t like then they just don’t have to watch it. Katelynn Wulff LouisC.
K.This hasbeen all over the news for months which is really drawing attention to theissue of sexual misconduct. There have been many women coming out against a lotof men that carry power. One of those men is Louis C.K which five women havecome out against him and has said that he has masturbated in front of them.
Because of this, they have stopped the release of his movie “I Love You, Daddythat he wrote, produced, directed and played in. they stopped the release rightbefore it was supposed to hit the big screen. He even was let go from the TVshows he was associated with like BetterThings, One Mississippi, The Cop and Baskets” show that both FX Networks and FX Productions have madewith him.
He will also “no longer serve as executive producer or receivecompensation on any of the four shows”. Which I believe is the right thing todo. If I had him associated with anything I wouldn’t what his name anywherenear me.
Which makes it worse when he says that the stories weren’t lies andthat they were true so you can’t even justify why he shouldn’t be off the show.At least he didn’t deny it which make the women feel like they got their wordout there and that other women can to which is why so many powerful men aregoing down. Katelynn Wulff Bring Down the Production CostThis article is about Ramaboss, the founderof PMK, and he thinks that movies should be cheaper to make and believe thatthe film industry should debate on it. He also said that you should be able to”approach banks for financing rather than relying on moneylenders” (Film-makers should bring down). Which I believe should happen if you wantto make a movie that you should be able to go to a bank for financing to do itespecially if you a small producing company. Ramadoss did make a good pointthough he said that “The film industry is not about just a few producers,directors and actors.
Many families depend on it for their livelihood. So, theindustry should be run like a business and not like a betting industry” (Film-makers should bring down). Which makes sense, but at the same timeit is a betting industry because you don’t know if the movie is going to dogood or not.
Ramadoss said that most producers have been trying to make moremoney for the stars rather than the content. Which is true if you watch anymovie nowadays most of them have a famous person in it. Then plaster their nameeverywhere on the advertising because they know that more people will go ifthey have a person everyone likes.
Which makes sence because just the other dayI rented a movie that had Zac Efron in it and I didn’t care for the movie but Istill gave it a 6 out of ten because it had him in it. Katelynn Wulff Code of Conduct Canadawants to set up a code of conduct that will try to end the sexual harassmentthat is in the film industry all over the news. So many men are being broughtdown and so many women are coming out because they feel safer now.
The Canadianfilm industry wants to make sure that everyone is feeling safe about coming out.So, they want to create a better “moreeffective reporting mechanisms and supports” sothey can feel comfortable (Vlessing). Which I believe it would be a good thing because someof the women on the new waited years to come out and maybe if they had andbetter support system in the film industry they wouldn’t have been scared aboutcoming out. One woman Mia Kirshner said that she wasn’t protected when she cameout about Harvey Weinstein and that she still is scared to talk about othersexual predators.
She would like to see the Canadians actor union “createthe gold standard for how complaints of sexual harassment and abuse are handledin the workplace’ (Vlessing). I believe that this would be a good step forward forthe Canadian movie industry and would hopefully help these women feel safer.Even though it sometimes it doesn’t stop it completely maybe now people willthink twice about sexual harassment. Katelynn Wulff Robustindustry Maryland is growing in the film industry with 78 filmsand five TV shows one of them being Houseof Cards.
The number of movies and TV shows being shot in Baltimore isgrowing. This is because Baltimore is right next to Washington D.C.
Washingtonhas a lot of regulations about what you can film and what you can’t because ofthe security. So, if they can’t shoot it there they would just go to Baltimoreand film it there because it’s so close. Also, they say that it is leastexpensive than shooting in Washington. So, why would you want to spend more ifyou can save money in another state especially if you have a low budget filmand get basically the same outcome without as strict regulations.
Kaltenbach said, that they have a lot of “Caterers, electricians, casting agents all the people youwould need to shoot a film or shoot a television show, we have them here in thearea” (Miller). Which is good if you hire locally because then they know thearea and a good place to shoot a certain scene. While also bring jobs toBaltimore to the article stated that they “hired over 1,000 Marylandtechnicians and actors, according to a December 2016 report from the MarylandDepartment of Commerce” (Miller). Which I believe is a good thing if you wouldlike to shoot there then hiring their people would be good because it will saveyou a lot of money on flites which means for money for production.
Which mostlikely means a better movie. But the film industry also helps them with theirtourism and in the article, they talk about how and the movie the WeddingCrashers came out a lot of people started calling the Inn at Perry cabin tohave their wedding there. So, it alsohelps the businesses because of the film industry. Katelynn Wulff GlobalGroup Films Global group does everything prettymuch. It does “banking, property investment, financial services, education,media and entertainment, gaming and telecommunication. Global Group Films hasgrouped up with “Dadi Century Films (Beijing) Co.
, Ltd and Mei Ah FilmProduction Co, Ltd in a mainland China/Hong Kong” to co-produce the movie Theory of Ambitions. The big budgetblockbuster will be directed by Philip Yung, who is an award-winning directorand according to the article is though of as “the new hope of Hong Kong Filmindustry”. He is known as this because of all his successes one of them beinghis award-winning film at many festivals called Port of Call. The movie Theoryof Ambitions will also feature Asia’s biggest movie stars Tony Leung andAaron Kwok. This will be the first time they would work together which will bevery interesting to see how well they can fit together.
I think this movie willhave a lot of opportunities with the amount of film companies that are on it.If they invest their money right in this movie it could make a lot more moneyin the long run. It just matters if they put their money in the content and itsimagery. I believe this movie will also be a success because they have well-knownmovie stars that can play the parts they need. China’s film is growing everydayand its already big and that why global films labels Midland China an importantfilm market.
Also, China’s cinemas have grown a lot and the number of cinemasin China is more then what United States has. This movie will do especiallywell because of the booming film market in China. Katelynn Wulff Smokingin Films Every time you watch a film you will always see at leastone-person smoking. I believe that it shouldn’t be portrayed in movies. Smokingis a nasty habit it gets into and I believe that it should be taking out of themovies. I was watching a show just the other day and it had a kid that was like8 years old smoking and that’s not okay.
People smoking in films makes kids,teens adults think its cool. The article says, that the senator Nadine Grelet-Ceertenaishas started a debate about getting rid of smoking in films. It also says thatthey used smoking if films as a way to “kill time”. They say that most Frenchmovies have done this and one of the best movies that portray smoking is a Frenchfilm called À Bout de Souffle whichopens with the main character smoking while he’s driving and throughout thewhole hour and a half movie he is constantly smoking. Even the last scene as hefalls the smoke flows out of him.
I think they should cut smoking out of cinemas.Nowadays smoking is not as popular and it’s a good thing but it is stillportrayed in movies. I know they will never be able to cut it out completelybecause in some movie where there’s a bad guy or a drug dealer. They willalways have them smoking to portray that their not a good person. Which makessense but I don’t condone smoking in any sense in movies because kids and teensthink its cool. Katelynn Wulff 2017Box Office A lot of movies came out so far in 2017 but right now inthe for the yearly 2017 box office the top three are Beauty and the Beast, WonderWoman, and Guardians of the GalaxyVol. 2. Out of though those 3 I have only seen one of them and that was Beauty and the Beast which was reallygood.
What was cool about it was that I never watched the original movie so Ihad nothing to compare it. I did have a slight understanding of the moviebecause my friend told me the basic summary of the original but I still was soamazed by the story line and the way they told it. Its amazing to see how muchmore a movie makes over another movie.
The Beautyand the Beast made a little less than 100 thousand more the Wonder Women did. Which is crazy becauseit based off of a children’s movie. But it did generate a lot with kids andteen and some adults because it was a family-friendly movie. While lookingthrough this list of box office movies of 2017 I did notice that I haven’t seena lot of these which really makes me want to go to the movies more. I alsonoticed that a lot of the movies on this list are sequels to previous movies.like Cars 3, Despicable Me 3, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, andDaddy’s Home 2.
Which everyone knowsthat the first one is always the best one. But you’re defiantly going to seethe sequel because you liked the first one so much that you have to go see thesecond one. It amazing to see how thebox office can change every week and who know maybe next week Beauty and the beast will be bumped downto second-ranked of the year because the years not over yet. Katelynn Wulff Movie Theater Stocks Ican be the one to say that I never go to the movie theater anymore unless itssomething that I can’t wait to see.
I’m the type of person who waits until it’son DVD and I can get it from the red box at the Walmart where I work. I am alsothe one who doesn’t have cable in their house because all I need is Wi-Fibecause I have Netflix and I can justwait for the show to come on there. But if I really want to watch a show that’snot on Netflix I would just ask mymom for her Time Warner Cable app sign on and I would watch it through that. SoI can see why AMC and Regal stocks were at their 52-week low. What amazes me isthat people still decided to invest in them even when they were low. But Itotally understand because when you’re down there’s nowhere to go but up andthat what AMC and Regal are trying to do.
They are trying to figure out ways toget people to the movies. One way that AMC will do that is they want to startselling movie related merchandise. I have been for years that every movietheater should do this. It makes sense, it’s like going to a concert you always haveto buy a tee shirt for a memento so why not do that with a movie you loved. Cinemarkalso want to try a monthly subscription service like Netflix but instead youpay a certain amount a month and you can go to the movies whenever. This is a brilliantidea, I like that it will be cheaper then a regular priced movie ticket and itwill give people a reason to go out every month.
Which will lead to peoplebuying popcorn, snacks, and candies. Which leads to more money for their company. Katelynn WulffMoviePass This is what I’ve been waiting forever to see when movieare less then ten dollars to go see. Thiswas made possible from the service MoviePass.MoviesPass charges you $9.
95 a monthfor the subscription and lets a person go to a movie once a day. Which in theUnited State a movie ticket cost about 14 dollars which saving money will makemore people interested in this service. Ibelieve that this is a smart idea because if people are paying for thesubscription it will make them want to go so they don’t waste their money.
Alsobecause there going it can get the movie industry more money because they willmost likely want to go with friends and what if they don’t have thesubscription. This is a big thing for the movie industry because its kind oflike Netflix but instead of movies that have been out forever or having to waitforever to see it. You pay monthly and you can go see a brand new movie rightin theaters and get the whole experience of the movie. It would be nice if itcould be in every movie theater because I would really get people interested inthis service if they could use it anywhere. Which is why it’s not a surprise thatso many industry leaders are jumping on board because it’s what I believe is thefuture of the movie industry. Katelynn Wulff LasVegas Shooting The Las Vegas shooting just like any shooting was a great tragedy that effectedeveryone.
So many people were many people injured and there were many people whopassed away. Just like every time a shooting happens the world comes together tohelp those in need. Some of those people who reached out were actors andimportant people. For respect of the of the people you were effected by theshooting the One Road Films said that they would stop the premier of Marshal and only did the “private screeningof the film for the cast, filmmakers andinvited guests”.Also, Warner Bros. Pictures, Sony Pictures, and Alcon Entertainment also deiced to cancel the premiere and red carpet forthe movie Blade Runner 2048. Ithink this is a beautiful way to respect the people who were effected by the tragedy.I think it is awesome that even the movie industry would come together to helppeople even though lose out on money because the respect for this tragedy meansway more than any amount of money they would have made.
The movie has a bigimpact on everything and it defiantly draws more attention to something if alot of people are doing it. This was a tragic day in history that will foreverbe remember and all the people how have past will always be in our hearts. Katelynn Wulff Milwaukee The filmindustry is one industry that can help any city or state reach their financialgoal and that’s exactly what the Milwaukee film industry did.
The Milwaukee filindustry actually made more jobs for people in this region then their beerindustry has. The industry has grown by 10 percent in since 2010 to 2015 whichthen doubled the growth of Milwaukee’s economy. Because of the this, they did asurvey and found out that more people moved to Milwaukee for a creative reason.So Milwaukee is attracting young creative adults to their region to join theirworkforce. They do this by having the annual Milwaukee Film festival that mayattract producers and help these filmmakers get recognized. They are alsogiving the film industry support by having them promote their work and skills.By doing this you are showing people that their work matters and that they canmake great films.
I have taken video editing classes before for a college classat Hudson Valley. They had student art show where they pick which ones theylike and they get put in the exhibit. There is nothing better than having otherpeople look at your work and be amazed by it. it’s amazing that Milwaukee andother cites/states give young people the chance to be recognized.
