Film Genres Lead the Way For Independent Filmmaking
A movie, also known as a video, short film, short video, mini documentary or digital film, is a creative work of visual arts used to simulate real experiences, stories, senses, emotions, beauty, or ambiance through the utilization of moving images. A movie is designed to entertain as well as tell a story while remaining true to its aesthetic goals of being beautiful and meaningful in the most basic sense. Movies are made for both mainstream and independent distribution but are commonly produced commercially by independent artists or small video production companies for Internet distribution. Popular Hollywood movies are a type of mini-films with multiple endings. Most movies are shot in the United States, but have been produced in other countries through international licensing agreements.
Film distribution via the Internet has created new avenues and improved methods for filmmakers to connect with audiences around the world. The advent of the World Wide Web has dramatically expanded the reach of filmmakers worldwide, making it easier for them to produce, exhibit and promote their films. The internet has also significantly lowered production costs and, by extension, increased profitability for filmmakers looking to finance their independent or low-budget projects. In addition, the rise of a new breed of online movie distributors has made indie cinema more popular with movie fans and audiences. Independent film distribution provides filmmakers with an independent marketplace where they can sell their movies directly to consumers instead of through traditional channels.
However, many independent filmmakers are either unable or unwilling to explore traditional film genres in their work. Formats such as TV serials and TV comedy programs do not typically lend themselves to the production of a feature-length film and the restrictions of their formats prevent most from ever seeing the light of a festival release. The advent of cable television and the relative availability of broadband connections to the home has changed the face of viewing as well, opening avenues for independent filmmakers to produce and market independent film. But as technology continues to advance, filmmakers will find increasingly inventive ways to produce and exhibit their work. Independently produced and marketed online, video websites and social networking sites offer filmmakers a chance to reach audiences that are just beginning to become interested in independent film. In this new climate, independent films may well find their way into the future of mainstream entertainment.
