Adjusting To The New Times In Film And TV


Are people prepared? Some have sold dreams that aren’t fulfilled. Look at the Rugged Guy who puts on a suit or Tommy Bahama shirt and he makes online marketing videos indicating that he can help you make millions. It doesn’t seem real and it’s highly-fabricated. Do people know that we’re in the times where many are realizing that there was a massive lie underneath the makeup, witty lingo and videos with the fanciest houses in the back? Are people renting? They aren’t even financing many of these large homes.

So what is next? A person must be patient and invest. Invest time and energy. Invest in education. Like many older ones would say back in the day, money doesn’t grow on trees. Some have prayed hard, studied all night and had to sacrifice. They had to put a drink down or let the club nights go. They had to forsake funny so-called friends who made them laugh, but did not have the dedication to be an asset versus a hindrance. Who has the power to create the next Facebook, You tube or even Sound Cloud?

We’re still seeing that there are opportunities, but who is making the big bucks? People are demanding less as in wanting to see big Hollywood stars. They’ve seen so much entertainment online that they are finding a ‘niche’ and seeing who’s who without going out and ‘speaking a lot about big entertainment.’ They are finding smaller productions more appealing and being less talkative about it. Some are gaining momentum online. Many are turning back into Business ingenuity and perhaps pondering over a new invention or creative, social platform. Is the world over fame and money?

Now a days, many producers and directors look for talent with college courses under their belts or degrees. Some prefer people with Master’s Degrees so that they’ll excel and go far and be something positive so that people will look at the Entertainment Industry as a place where professionals gather and make big moves even after their cinema or TV time. Maybe they’ll run a large corporation or single – run business. These days, many are demanding more out of talent versus just paying them high bucks for a pretty face and slim waist.

The days of Jezebeldom are over. People want those with Creative Ideas to apply for gigs and jobs. They want someone who understands that there is less demand for pretty faces now. People are looking beyond superficiality and they are saying ‘what can we get out of you besides a look?’ There is a change coming. Americans and the world are waiting for the next ‘Facebook’ or other outlet which captivates the world. We know that advertising will be big still cause people do buy ‘at first glance’ when looking at certain ads. But the Film and TV Industry is said to have become a ‘poor man’s industry’ for many actors.

Perhaps crew people will demand higher wages, but there has been a decline in demand for movies and DVDs. Less people are going out on dates and spending money to be in love while supporting Hollywood. So that means less in revenue. People are working harder and may not have time for too much entertainment. Unless we market to Business men as it pertains to music. They could listen to great CDs from great artists as they wait impatiently during rush hour traffic. That is a great time to listen to music and maybe Music Artists will start marketing more to that demographic or person.

Either way, there is still opportunity in Film and TV. Some are ‘fine and dandy’ with just doing background roles and making 8 or 10 dollars an hour or more; depending on the production. It is great experience, but people need to be more practical as it pertains to working on sets. There are chances for people to work in a great industry while being realistic. Plenty of crew people have been overwhelmed by the amount of people attempting to strike it rich working on sets. It’s not like it used to be. And many stars and celebrities have fabricated their earnings making many dreamers become very disappointed once they find out some stars sleep on buses at times. So there are lies. But keep your eyes open. You could go to school at night and work background acting jobs. Make sure you acquire Business skills and Business credits so that you’d have something great to fall back on. There is still a need to obtain great head shots and make awesome acting reels. It’s still fun. There is still pay and people are still making movies. Remember, You tube and Netflix offers actors more chances to land a role. So there is still room for talent. Head shots are still important. Maybe there will be more productions sprawling online so there is no need to throw in the towel yet. It’s just that striking it rich might be a tad too out of sight. But who knows? Maybe a new wave of Entertainment Enthusiasts will manifest.

We’ll see how the world goes soon. Who will be the next big thing or big one famous yet still way under; JESUS CHRIST? Fame is okay if you’re not throwing out the KING! Well, only God knows!!!

A Blog Update About Teeth – A Smile Is Important!


Jason writes for various online outlets and this is a an article about Wisdom Teeth. Photographers and Directors know that a smile can make or break an Actor. So learning about teeth and taking care of them is important. Please read this article by Writer/Blogger Jason Brye!

Are Wisdom Teeth Easy to Break?

It’s a difficult thought to be reflecting as it pertains to when one considers the breaking of teeth, especially wisdom teeth. Many have argued that the breaking of a particular wisdom tooth is the most painful one to have to witness a sorrowful dissipation after breaking. The physical and emotional pain can be unbearable for many. The mouth would feel bare without these vital, hindmost molars which usually manifest prior to a person being in their mid-twenties; hence the name ‘wisdom teeth.’ Wisdom comes with age. And it is normal for these teeth to take at least 20 years before growing in an adult’s mouth. But are these specialized teeth easy to break? Were they specially prepared to pop up later in life after adolescents learn to take care of their teeth more?

Our Wisdom Teeth and the Strength underneath them

With most adults having four wisdom teeth of which they appear and are useful in the quadrants of the mouth, but with four; it seems inevitable that normal wear and tear would hinder tooth longevity and the wrong bite could prove detrimental. But with wisdom teeth being so far away from the front, it would be difficult to break wisdom teeth. Many argue that they can never break.  And there are some pressing the issue that Dentists should advise others in regards to wisdom tooth management. No one in their right mind wants to lose a tooth.

Wisdom teeth seem to be glued into our gums as they are sturdy teeth which benefit us greatly. They could chip, but breaking completely is almost impossible unless their was a blunt force assault or accident. Let us take care of our wisdom teeth as well. Some forget to diligently brush them cause they are so far from the center of the gums, but they are important too. Wisdom is good and so are Wisdom teeth. Knowing that they are important could help a person live a happy life with beautiful teeth and smiles.

Are Dreams Becoming Abate? March 2019

So many have lost hope it seems. Where is the college dream? Where are the singers talking about signing a big contract? The diminishing talkers and friends going around pumping up college has many wondering. Many Christians aren’t even talking heaven publicly. With a weakened ‘dream factor’ in America, what’s next for the millennial? Some speculate that many have HIV and aren’t telling the public eye. But how can we dilute this problem or even make it dissipate? Can we pray? Or speak that many Gays and Lesbians have gotten through it. They kept trucking. Many still laughed, talked about plans and even desired to love. Of course HIV is not every gay man’s final destination, some have escaped unscathed. But what about straight people? What’s going on out there? Is contention a rare find overall? Who is talking heaven? Or even going to get an MBA? Or Bachelors even? Everyone is not going to meet a star or leader one day who will change their lives forever.

Is the point of departure here for the dreamer? Of course not. I guess with dwindling salaries in Hollywood and in the Music Industry, many have lost touch. They hear of less money, less sparkle and more competition. So many get on TV for free, it drives the wages down. But many are starting ‘cool businesses’ and working on a great future by investing in tomorrow through start ups, technology and more. So we have less dreamers hopping on a Greyhound or SouthWest Airlines plane, and heading to the Golden State for a Modern Day Gold Rush. But we have more remote game developers and others who are planning great things.

What about Emmy’s, Grammy’s and Oscar’s? Are folks waiting to find a rich Bush to live off of? Or are they plotting to just give up on life cause they see a diminishing return as far as investing in the future is concerned? Well, we need bright leaders for tomorrow! We need another Obama who was a college grad who soared to achieve greatness. We can’t have another Jesus perhaps who has accumulated thousands of churches centered around him. But who will be that? One who goes out and speaks with great conviction and heals?

What do we have left? Are pundits spitting out superficial jargon or are they empowering leaders for tomorrow? Time will tell. Let’s keep doing great things. Let’s hang in there. America can still be great. The Christian must speak heaven, maybe it will catch on to even thinking of great ‘heaven-like ventures’ on earth. We can still think heaven and perhaps think of doing something great here on earth while we dream of heaven. Amen.
