I often find indie filmmakers to be the most pessimistic and yet strange optimistic people in the industry. They decry the lack of support but at the same time hold out hope that the next inovation can be harnessed to help them and their projects. Therefore, the SVOD explosion has been seen by many as a chance for indie filmmakers to finally reach their hitherto-denied full audience.
Whilst this still may be possible, it doesn’t seem that the major streamers will be the route for most. The massive platforms need massive movies and audiences respond largely as they do in cinemas. On the plus side, this says nothing of the niche streaming sites such as Shudder, so maybe all hope is not lost just yet.
All thought welcomed.
