Society tends to associate propaganda films with issues such as Nazi Germany and their film messages for their country; however, it is also possible for small independent companies, groups of like-minded people and individuals to use the media of film to incorporate messages for our society (The Independent, 2010). These messages are often in relation to changes that individuals should make in order to improve the standards by which they live their lives and changes to everyday habits that will benefit the individual, the individual’s family, a group of individuals or even a single person (Barnhisel and Turner, 2010).
Hollywood had every right to make films on controversial topics, but various censorship boards thought otherwise, and these censorship boards felt that it was necessary to have community restrictions on immoral topics of controversy such as adultery, prostitution and divorce. The question was how censorship should be placed on films as well as to what extent in the way these controversial topics were presented (Black 53).
As independent films gained a foothold in the 1950’s, Hollywood was struggling. This is when Hollywood looked towards Blockbusters, a term used in theater which is a film that is anticipated to make high revenues, but uses a large amount of money and resources to achieve this. This is the antithesis of the independent film where it was often difficult to secure funding, they needed to rely more on their story and the videography more than on wow factor or high paid actors to draw crowds in to the theaters. Independent films struggled until the 1980’s where it got a boost thanks to some talented filmmakers that made people want to watch the films
The film I have chosen to analyze for this paper was titled 12 Years a Slave. To provide a brief summary, Solomon Northup was a free African-American man who had a wife named Anne, and two children named Alonzo and Margaret. Northup unfortunately, lost his freedom, was kidnapped, and sold into slavery. He had met two men in Saratoga Springs, New York. These two men claimed they were part of a circus company looking for musical talent. The men had convinced Northup go to Washington D.C. with them, by promising him high wages. Northup celebrates this special opportunity with the two men, but becomes sick after drinking. As Northup became sick, he falls asleep and wakes up to be being handcuffed and chained in a room. Unfortunately, Northup was a victim of kidnapping and sold into slavery, which he had worked for several men who had owned him. As the years passed, the movie portrays Northup’s torment, suffering, and agony through experiences and daily activities he is faced with. One day he meets a carpenter named Bass who believes that slavery is inhumane and begins to converse with him about
Unfortunately however, a February 2004 poll by the Pew Research Center found that “72 percent of the public has heard nothing about the media ownership [and consolidation] debate” (Connell 2004). Understanding how corporate mergers and consolidation affect the way in which the media function (especially in the realms of production and distribution) and how the media in turn directly impacts our society, our culture, our economy, and our politics – in short, our entire lives – is a necessary
The Battle of the Woods: Hollywood and Nollywood Cinema of the United States has played an undeniable role in the transmission and interpretation of many values that we hold today. We perceive real life situations based on what Hollywood has taught us. Some ninety years after the first huge success of American cinema, “The Great Train robbery” was released, we were introduced to a new brand of films. The cult classic “Living in Bondage” was distributed. This low- budget film produced in Onitsha, Nigeria set the scene for what would become an explosion. So impressed were the filmmakers and actors by their work, they coined the term Nollywood- the Nigerian Hollywood. The different environments and practices have resulted in obvious
The realities and practicalities of the world present steady suggestions that run through different movies with respect to ethical decisions. Just as business concentrates on efficient ethical decisions models to strike a balance between making profits, satisfying customers, and achieving stakeholder’s needs, movie directors continue to identify the right combinations of ethical decisions that main characters have to follow through their actions and scripts to foster ethical conduct. Ethical decisions made have causes and effects, consequences, framed in context of how a movie with different scripts can achieve its highest-priority themes and guarantee positive ratings. A 2012 film, The Hunger Games, directed by Gary Ross and 2014 film, Divergent, directed by Neil Burger presents two ideal films focusing on the ethical decisions made by the main characters. This essay aims at identifying the causes and effects of ethical decisions made by the main characters, the impacts of these decisions, how these decisions affect the society.
What do you see as the benefits of indie films? Interesting--I made a documentary about Sundance that talked a lot about this, but I've never really answered it myself. What I love about indie film is that if it's good--studio films and indie films can all be good and they can all be bad--so

B-MOVIES: FROM RAGS TO RICHES Hollywood today spends more money on movies than ever before, with an average budget of $140 million per movie. ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’; the most expensive movie ever made; cost approximately $378.5 million and that was five years ago. This isn’t surprising since history is witness to a rising trend in money spent on movies, however, even after adjusting for inflation, their impact on the industry isn’t as large as their budgets. Over the years, lower cost productions like B-Movies have played a major role in carrying the industry forward by keeping it stable, moving and profitable in times of trouble. B-Movies came to be the need of the hour after The Great Depression and World War II. Money was tight everywhere and Hollywood could not continue making extravagant movies therefore they turned to low budget commercial films. These movies not only have an economical significance in Hollywood, they have made more than one contribution to the industry. These low risk movies provided directors, writers and producers with a wide scope for experimentation and led to the creation of many genres and sub-genres. The origins of B-Movies are humble but over the years that they grew in Hollywood, they became more significant and successful, yet their progress from “Rags to Riches” remains more a behind-the-scenes heroic act than a superhero effort.
despite the fact that the energy, desperation and punch of this harsh and-prepared film is sufficiently genuine. It's reviving as well. The silver screen and its orderly media-remark industry seem to have unending space for each kind of easily fair immateriality truth be told and fiction.
