Susan Wojcicki and Google finally seem to have gotten to it. They are going after original content. But it pales in comparison to the lineups of Netflix, HBO and Amazon. Not nearly enough for a 10 dollar a month subscription.
Netflix and Amazon are shaking up Sundance hierarchy. It looks like Amazon and Netflix are providing a major boost to the independent film production. I see a dichotomy appearing with major studies focusing on franchises (Avengers…) and streaming services more or less dominating independent film making. Where art thou, Apple and Youtube?
