Hollywood and the U.S. Film Industry Topped $43 Billion in Revenue Last Year,
The American film industry generated $43.4 billion in revenue last year, increasing in each of the past five years at an annualized rate of just 2.2%, according to a report by the research firm IBIS World obtained by Deadline. Even so, the report found that the film industry is “growing slightly faster than the overall economy,” and projects it will retain more of its revenue as profit than in years past – 12.6% in 2017, compared with just 10.6% in 2012.
Netflix is revolutionizing the business of the film industry, at a time of a beautiful Cinematography Renaissance and powerful Series Cinema. This post offers a snapshot of the state of cinema in 2018 and reflects on key trends and challenges that may shape its future. Cinema is both a global industry and technological art, so it’s only natural that the trends and challenges I see are interwoven in business, technology, and culture.
The Netflix Revolution
Full Frame Look 4K+
TVs and Theaters
1. The Netflix Revolution
There will be a battle of media titans for the exploding streaming video market. The shift from television, cable, and DVDs to the internet is changing cinema both inside and outside the theaters. Netflix has led the way, dominating the internet streaming business by investing heavily in the making of series and features (through production and acquisition).
Some noteworthy figures:
Netflix invested 6 billion dollars in video content in 2017, Netflix reached 117 million subscribers, split about 50/50 between the US and the rest of the world. Netflix grew its revenues by a phenomenal 36% in 2017, and there is every indication for continued growth. Netflix’s worldwide revenues of 11 billion in 2017 are about the same as the total US Box Office. Netflix has announced that it plans to spend 8 billion in 2018, on some 700 series and 80 feature films.
Is the elephant in the streaming room, and is catching up to Netflix, investing 4.5 billion in series and movies in 2017. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos sees quality movies as helping to build his brand, and has remarked: “we get to monetize that content in a very unusual way when we win a Golden Globe; it helps us sell more shoes”.
Note that Netflix and Amazon are also buying quality content by some of the most innovative filmmakers around: the Coen brothers, Alfonso Cuaron, Ildikó Enyedi, Todd Haynes, Bong Joon-Ho and Dee Rees, to name some recent directors.
The business of streaming films and series looks to become more crowded. The traditional studios, led by Disney (155 Billion market cap), are destined to compete with Netflix (130 B) and Amazon (722 B). Disney is set to launch its own streaming service in 2019. There are also two giant newcomers who may join the content business, Apple (888 B) and Face book (511 B). There is a lot of fish in the “video content” tank, and some big fish will probably eat smaller ones. Indeed, Apple is rumored to have considered buying Netflix.
3. Series Cinema
Series have developed a new form of cinema that rivals theatrical films. For the past decade, much of the best of American cinema has been offered in remarkable series, watched on televisions and laptops. (There have also been some superb European series). Series Cinema has been enabled by the high quality of small screen cinematography, which is giving a cinematic feel and form to episodic content. In an age where superhero franchises dominate the box office, many independent American filmmakers have turned to series to tell different kinds of stories, and, in doing so, are defining new kinds of multi-hour movies. To me, contemporary series is like the serial literature of the nineteenth century, when great writers like Dickens, Dostoyevsky, and Dumas published some of their masterpiece novels, one or more chapters at a time in periodicals. Binge-watching is a way of experiencing movies differently. The longer time length makes the series psychological experience more immersive. And the episodic nature makes this lengthy movie more about character than story. Series are creating a new kind of Cinema.
4. Full Frame Look
Many filmmakers will explore using Large Format cameras, and the different perspective and depth of field they offer.
After the recent introductions of the Sony Venice and the Arri Alexa LF, there are presently five leading cameras with Large Format sensors: Arri Alexa 65, Arri Alexa LF, Panavision DXL, Red Monstro and Sony Venice.
Shooting large-format creates a different look, large-format sensors imply longer focal lengths and therefore less depth of field than standard Super 35. This means that filmmakers will create images with more out of focus areas, or be required to add more light in order to close down the iris, especially in interiors and night exteriors. Many filmmakers feel that longer lenses used in large format create a perspective and look that is closer to our perception than Super 35, and therefore feels more natural. In the short term, many directors will want to explore the Large Format look. It will be fascinating to see the impact of this optical perspective and depth of field on the stories they will tell. However, I do not believe that Large Format will replace Super 35, as not every filmmaker will want to have that look for every project. In the long term, Large Format will become one more filmmaking option, or perhaps, a genre.
5. TVs vs Theaters
The latest home televisions are technically superior to theater screens. While theaters offer unique scale and community, they will need new image technology to keep their audience. The situation of movie theaters today evokes the 1950s when the studios introduced anamorphic lenses to offer wider spectacles than what people could see on their televisions. The difference is that today, the televisions are technically better than the theaters. The UHD television standard is equivalent to 4K resolution in theaters, but most screens are 2K at present. Televisions are presently capable of higher frame rates than movie theaters. The television 2020 standard color space is more extensive than the current theatrical DCI-P3 standard. Televisions have higher dynamic range capability than theaters, and it’s a lot easier to get true black values in a darkened living room than it is in a movie theater. Of course, movie theaters can create a unique experience of community, as the amazing response to Black Panther has shown us recently. Also, teenagers will always need to leave their parents at home and go out with their friends. And many of us adults will go to theaters to watch movies like Black Panther, which has become a milestone cultural event. In addition, so-called “premium theaters,” like the IMAX or Dolby Cinema chains, offer high picture and sound quality at a price. To me, the main benefit of the proposed HDR — High Dynamic Range — systems is deeper blacks, but that won’t be enough to keep people in theaters. The long-term future of the movie theater depends on technological change, and I believe that the most promising image technology is the LED screen. If television screens are better than projectors, perhaps they should replace them! I have seen very intriguing examples of large LED screens from Samsung and Sony, that offer a promising finesse to the image, along with perfect geometry, high frame rates, better blacks and vibrant colors, although the present cost is prohibitive.
The industry is changing and will enable more women and people of color in positions of power. One of the most important cultural trends is the growing diversity of the characters on screen. Wonder Woman is the first female superhero protagonist, and Gal Gadot’s charisma and strength send a great message to young audiences. Similarly, the wonderful cast of African-Americans in Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther marks a milestone in the genre, sending a clear message to the studio heads, as it raced to a billion-dollar gross in record time.
Of course, it’s just as important to see diversity behind the camera. Rachel Morrison, ASC, is a wonderful role model, the first woman cinematographer nominated for an Oscar for Dee Rees’ Mudbound, and the first woman cinematographer to shoot a huge action movie, the aforementioned Black Panther. It’s been a very good year for Rachel!
It’s also heartening to see that an African-American, Bradford Young, ASC, shot the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story. And it’s just as important to see one female director, Patty Jenkins, break into the box office top 20. Ava DuVernay is the first African-American woman to direct a movie with a 100-million plus budget, A Wrinkle in Time. And it’s wonderful to see Greta Gerwig get an Oscar nomination for directing Lady Bird. Let’s hope that having more diverse people making blockbusters will help evolve the themes and stories of the big studio films.
1. Film Production – Development
This is where the project is birthed. It is the creation, writing, organizing and planning stage of a project. In development, a preliminary budget is made, key cast are attached, key creative’s are chosen, main locations scouted and multiple script drafts may be written. It’s all the groundwork to show what the project will be and how much it will cost to make. It starts the moment a Producer thinks of a project or a Writer starts penning words on a page. Development can take months or even years to get the project green-lit by a studio or funded independently and move into pre-production. Green-lighting a film means the studio has approved the idea and will finance the project and move into production. The crew involved in the development stage is quite minimal compared to all the other stages, as it’s just a small group of creative’s and executives crafting the story and associated budget. Once a project finds finance, it will move into the pre-production phase with an emphasis on shooting dates and time frames for the project to be finished.
2. Film Production – Pre-Production
Pre-production (or ‘pre’ as it’s called) is where scripts are amended, budgets are adjusted, actors are cast, locations scouted, the crew employed, shooting schedules amended, sets designed and built, costumes made and fitted, and everything to do with the shoot is planned and tested. The pre-production stage can last many months from the initial green-lighting of a project to when cameras actually roll. As this date draws closer, the crew grows with many people being employed about two to eight weeks before the shoot starts.
3. Film Production- Production
The production stage is where the rubber hits the road. The Writer, Director, Producer, and countless other creative minds finally see their ideas captured on film, one day at a time. Production is usually the shortest of the five phases, even though it is paramount to the film and where most of the budget is allotted. Production is the busiest time, with the crew swelling to hundreds and the days becoming longer in order to be as efficient as possible with all the gear and locations on hire.
4. Film Production – Post-Production
So you’ve thought of an idea, written a script, raised the funds, employed a crew to get it made, spent most of your budget and hopefully have shot some decent footage in the process. Now it’s time to move into post-production. This is where the footage is edited,
the sound is mixed, visual effects are added, a soundtrack is composed, titles are created, and the project is completed and prepared for distribution. Although the shooting crew has done a lot of hard work, now the post-production crew faces arduous hours of work ahead of them to piece together the scenes and craft a stunning story.
Without a stringent and robust distribution strategy, the other four stages of production are somewhat redundant, at least from a business perspective. Distribution is the final stage in a project for producers looking to make a return-on-investment. This can be from cinema distribution, selling to a TV network or streaming service, or releasing direct to DVD. Whatever the distribution plan is, the producers will have spent many hours planning and marketing their piece to ensure the biggest audience and largest return. With the digital age and rapidly converging technologies, viewers are watching content in new and different ways, meaning that the distribution phase is constantly evolving.
Although distribution is the final stage of the project, the channel of distribution and marketing of the project will be planned in pre-production.
6. What we plan to do
J. Guinn Entertainment, Inc. will utilize all the information above to our advantage to help advance our movies. We will be producing a slate of films, which are 5 films in one year. There are 5 stages of Understanding film Production. These stages are development, pre-production, production, post-production, and distribution. Each phase has a different purpose, with the overarching goal to get to the next one, and ultimately on to distribution. Each stage varies in length, and different roles suit different stages.
1.0 Products and Services
1.1 Products and Services
As stated above, J. Guinn Entertainment, Inc. will be actively engaged in the development and distribution of films and television shows produced from scripts that will be actively purchased by the Company. Once the Company “green lights” a production, the business will aggressively produce, distribute, and market the film or television show to the general public. The Company will earn substantial income from the distribution and licensure fees from the initial theatrical release of productions coupled with ongoing royalties from DVD, Blu-Ray downloads, paid subscription, and merchandising sales. The third section of the business plan will further describe the services offered by the Film Production Company. The tent pole movie is as close to a sure-fire hit that can reasonably be predicted by various parameters such as similar films, talent, release dates, theme, and audience. Tent pole is a studio term that relates to risk allocation. Studios try to spread their financial risk across their entire slate. The designated tent pole movie is designed to carry less financial risk than the rest of the film slate to return an overall profit to the studio.
1.2 The Financing
The founder is seeking to raise $275,000,000.00 million from an investor or group of investor(s). On a preliminary basis, The investor will also receive a regular stream of dividends from the royalties earned on the films and television shows produced and distributed by the Company. J. Guinn Entertainment, Inc. will be producing and distributing our own movies, in conjunction with one of the large studios.
1.3 Mission Statement
To produce quality motion pictures and television shows and other media that provides the Company’s audience with enjoyable entertainment.
1.4 Management Team
The Company was founded by John Guinn. I have more than 20 years of experience in the entertainment industry. Through my expertise, I will be able to bring the operations of the business to profitability within its first year of operations.
1.5 Sales Forecasts
The founder expects a strong rate of growth at the start of operations. Below are the expected financials over the next three years.
|Proforma Profit and Loss ( Yearly )|
|Taxes, Interest, and Depreciation||59,680,000||59,680,000||59,680,000|
1.6 Expansion Plan
The Founder expects that the business will aggressively expand during the first three years of operation. Mr. Guinn intends to implement marketing campaigns that will effectively target quality screenwriters that can provide the Company with extensive materials that the Company can produce and distribute as films and television shows to the general public.
2.0 Company and Financing Summary
2.1 Registered Name and Corporate Structure
J. Guinn Entertainment, Inc. The Company is registered as a corporation in the State of New York.
2.2 Required Funds
At this time, the Film Production Company requires $ 275,000,000.00 million of investor funds. Below is a breakdown of how these funds will be used.
2.3 Investor Equity
Now with the new business model entertainment industries have showered with a lot more funding and investors options that were never seen before, because it has reduced the failure risk factor to near zero. It allows producers to pay back their loans to banks and investors prior to the film release as producer sells rights to distributors and promotion partners of the film. So this is it. How do cinemas make money prior to its release? With the new business model, the income source for the producers has changed a lot. It is not the same as what we have seen How Hollywood movie earns money in olden times. Earlier the success of the movie depends entirely on the box office collection. This means if the movie fails to appeal to the audience with its content and doesn’t hit the theaters then, it will be a loss for the entire film industry. But now the definition of how movie makes money has changed giving profit to all bodies in the chain from producers to exhibitors. But in recent years we have seen major changes in the film industries business model, where every production house is keen to open their movie distribution wing. Like Shahrukh khan’s red chilies entertainment is a production as well as a distribution company. Although this step has greatly changed the way, and how movie producers make money? As for now, producers will not get the advance fund from distributors they get by selling the movie rights. But this change will allow them to decide how much print to be made, publicity requirement and where to show the movie.
Hence our blog concludes how movies make money with the fact that the success of the movie for filmmakers is not constraint only to the content it carries. It is basically the total budget as a high budget film seems risky when it is not welcomed by the audience with great excitement. As this can automatically decrease the margin gained. In short, a low budget and rich in the content movie is always a winner giving great business to everyone from producers to exhibitors. The movie and television industry is a great place to invest in. Invest in this ICO and let’s make some serious money.
2.4 Management Equity
Once the requisite capital is raised, Mr. Guinn will retain an 80% ownership interest in the business.
2.5 Exit Strategy
If the business is very successful, Mr. Guinn may seek to sell the business to a third party for a significant earnings multiple. Most likely, the Company will hire a qualified business broker to sell the business on behalf of the Film Production Company. Based on historical numbers, the business could fetch a sales premium of up to 10 times earnings if the Company earns substantial royalty income from its previous produced films and television shows.
3.0 Products and Services
Below is a description of the film production and distribution services that will be offered by the Film Production Company?
3.1 Film Development and Production
The Film Production Company will finance its own media content by purchasing scripts for movies and television shows developing them for distribution. The business will develop these pictures and shows individually, and will provide all of the necessary capital for the development of these projects. Upon receiving the Company’s needed capital, the business will produce one film at a time to develop this business. Management feels it is important to test the waters of this market as developing media content is a risky business. The Company wants to ensure that it develops the proper distribution and advertising channels before it heavily engages this business.
3.2 Licensing of Intellectual Property
As the Company develops its film and television portfolio, Management fully intends to license and develop strategic relationships with publishers that want to participate in the license of the Company’s database of film and television shows. If the Company’s marketing campaign is successful, the Company will be able to offer license of its trademarked and copyright-protected works to other businesses and as such the fees and licensing percentages will greatly increase the Company’s profitability.

7.0 Financial Plan
7.1 Underlying Assumptions
* The Film Production Company will have an annual revenue growth rate of 16% per year.
* The Founder will acquire $ 275,000,000.00 of equity funds to develop the business.
7.2 Sensitivity Analysis
The Company’s revenues are sensitive to the overall condition of the economic climate. Film and entertainment are luxury items, and in the event of an economic pullback, the Company may experience a decline in its top line income. However, the business’s operations are scalable, and during times of economic recession, the Company can scale down production and still enjoy revenue generated from prior works.
7.3 Source of Funds
7.4 General Assumptions
