2 Best Independent Movies of 2018

0

It is extremely hard to be an independent movie producer these days. Billion dollars film studios are pumping millions and billions on movies and advertisement which is creating a cloud over independent movie producers. An independent movie producer can never compete with big studios, and that is the reason why we see a constant decrease in Independent film production. But that didn’t stop few fearless producers from giving their imagination the reality. Unlike commercial movies, independent movies are mostly for an artistic purpose than making money. Today I decided to list down some of the best Independent movies of 2018 so far. B

Before we go to the list, I must describe what is an independent movie.

What makes a movie an Independent movie?

What is an Independent Movie

An independent movie which was produced outside of any traditional movie studio system. Be it Hollywood, Bollywood or even some little-known movie industries like Nollywood from Nigeria. Because it is made outside of big movie studios, budget plays a huge role. More often than not, these movies are funded by the producers from their own pocket. Independent movies are also very personal to the artists and the people involved in the production. Independent movies or Indie movies also use different channels of distribution. Most of the Indie movies are not aimed to make money; rather those are for showing what they can do. You rarely see any popular mainstream artists on these movies; these movies are mainly by small artists. There are some really great independent movies produced this 2018, and I am very much excited to introduce you to those movies.

2 Best Independent Movies on 2018

Hereditary

This is my favorite Horror movie of all time. This movie is a horror and supernatural movie. Many people believe that a horror movie on a low budget can never be good and if you think so, then you have to watch this movie. Hereditary was first released in June 2018 in Russia. Annie and her mother never saw eye to eye, and after her mother deaths, some weird things started to happen. Annie struggles to keep up with everything happening in her house and in the process she learns about the dark and terrifying history of her family. The acting, direction, and special effects are on point. In no way you can tell this movie is an independent movie with a budget 1/10th of any commercial Horror movie from Hollywood. This movie also performed very well in the box office.

Eighth Grade

Comedian and former YouTube star Bo Burnham is the mind and director behind the Indie movie Eighth Grade. This movie takes a peek look at a 13 years old girl at her last week of the eighth grade before going to the high school. This is not your average movie about teenagers who find life difficult. Director Bo Burnham did a good job showing how thirteen years old girls maneuver in that point of their life where getting approval from social media is important. The peer pressure of getting validation from Facebook and Instagram to the difficulties kids nowadays go through. We usually overlook the problem of a 13 years kid, but they have their problem and this movie describe it very effectively. The lead character Kayla played by Elsie Fisher did an awesome job playing the character, and she was almost natural with her act.

These are the two movies I was eager to show you guys. I am new to the Indie film genres, and I am glad I broadened my vision and decided to give a try to Indie films. There are hundreds of great movies produced by Independent movie producers, and many of them went on to receive Oscar and other prestigious awards. Wikipedia has a great list of some of the most popular Indie movies of all time and if you are someone getting into Indie movies then I strongly recommend you to read about those movies.

How to Start Your Own Movie Streaming Platform Like Netflix

0

This is the next article on our series “The Guide.” In the last article, we had shared 5 steps to run a successful entertainment business. In today’s article lets’ see how you can start your own streaming services just like Netflix and Amazon. The biggest problem with streaming online content is acquiring licenses for movies and videos. It is very hard to get such a license, and you need to have huge resources at your disposal. Without licenses, you are opening yourself to copyright charges from movie owners and often resulting in closing down your movie streaming business. Coke and Popcorn is a good example of this. Coke and Popcorn was one of the biggest movie streaming and downloading websites. It was seeing millions of hits each day at its peak. But then dues to various copyright violation notices, it had to quit its streaming business forever. Now there are hundreds of coke and popcorn alternative sites on the internet which shows how mad viewers were for this site. But sadly the original site is out of business now.

So, you need to have the resource and means to get movie streaming licenses for every individual movie. If you can do that, then this article is for you.

How to Start A Movie Streaming Business Just Like Netflix and Amazon

This is not a 101 guide to create a Netflix alternative. This article is only covering basics for any online streaming business. You need to investigate more from your side to start a successful online streaming business just like Netflix and Amazon.

1. Get a Domain and Hosting

choose correct domain and Hosting

The very stage of any online venture is to get a domain and hosting for your streaming. A domain is an address URL that the viewers type into their browser to get to any website. After getting a domain the next step is to get a hosting. There are several hosting for different purposes. If you are someone very much familiar with server and hosting, then you don’t need any explanation from me. If you have no idea which one to choose, hire someone and see which server type he/she suggests depending on your requirements.

2. Build the Site

There are two ways to make a Netflix like site: make and design a site from scratch, and the 2nd one is to use online solutions.

build streaming website

  • Build your own site: If you decide to go with your own site from scratch, then you need to hire developers and coders to get it done. Even if you know how to make a site like Netflix, you will still need workforce to execute your plan.
  • Use 3rd Part Solution: Many online platforms allow businesses like yours to create a site within days without any coding knowledge. Their platform does all the hard work and behind the scene work to make your site beautiful, customizable, and ready to use. There are many services for this purposes; you need prior research before choosing any one.

3. Cross-Platform Support

cross platform support

Viewers uses Netflix across devices. We all own at least 2-3 devices for different purposes, and we all want Netflix to be played on all the devices. Your viewers will expect the same. So make sure your service is available on all the major platforms. Creating such platforms to be accessed from all the devices require money. If you have it, then build your service for all the major devices. If you do not then focus on Web, Android and iOS devices in the beginning then expand later. The key here is to give viewers the flexibility to watch their favorite movie or Tv show on any device they want at any given moment.

4. Content

This is the heart and soul of any online streaming network. You need to have a diverse collection of movies and TV series. Getting licenses for all individual movies is hard. So make sure you have all prior paperwork before starting your venture.

In the recent trend, original contents are also getting a lot of popularity. All the major online streaming platforms and focusing more and more on original content these days. Start your own original section with few original movies and series if your budget allows. This will give people the reason to join your platform.

5. Monetization

monetize your online streaming webiste

Monetization is an important aspect of any business. The sole purpose for your venture is also to make money. So you need to decide how you want to monetize your platform. Here are few options that we suggest you to pursue:

  • Subscription: This type of monetization is currently in trend. In this model, viewers pay a flat rate per month to access your movie or TV series library. As a new platform, you need people the reason to choose your service over others. One of the best ways to do that is by giving free access for 14 days to a month. This will allow the viewer to see how excellent your service is and if they should pay you the subscription fee.
  • Advertisement: To be honest, this method is dying slowly. But it is still a profitable model. In this model, you let users access your service unrestricted for free without any charges. In turn, you show ad your site or in between the movie. This model is profitable, but viewers are recently seen moving away from these models. So you need to do proper research before even considering this method.

So, these are the few basic steps you need to think about before starting your online streaming business. It doesn’t matter if you have a legal service like Netflix or a pirated movie streaming network like Coke and Popcorn, the key is to deliver what your viewers want. As long as you are listening to your customers or viewers, you will be fine.

Fan Bingbing

Fan Bingbing, one of China’s top celebrity has been ordered to pay nearly $130 Million by the Chinese tax authority. Fan was facing allegations of tax evasion from a few months, and she was also disappeared from the public eye from the last July. Suddenly on Wednesday she resurfaced and shared an apology on her social media. South China Morning post says that Fan was under house arrest in a luxury resort while the authorities were investigating all the allegations.

Fan Bingbing

Fan was accused of filing wrong income to tax department for years in order to save tax. Authorities found that Fan used two different contracts, one open and another secret to avoid paying a large amount in tax. Now that authorities have found her guilty and thus she has been ordered to pay 884 million yuan, the equivalent of $130 million and £100 million. $60 million in back tax dues and $70 million in fines. If Fan is not able to pay the amount by the given time, she may face criminal charges.

Many people in the west know her from her role in X-Men: Days of Future Past as Blink. She is also seen in many Korean and French movies. She is also the face of big brands like Mercedes-Benz, Cartier, L’Oreal, Chopard and Louis Vuitton in China. She has over 62 Million followers on Chinese social media Weibo. After over 3 months of disappearing, Fan has come to the public eye with her social media post about how sorry she is for her action and how thankful she is to the country and the communist party. On her social media post, she wrote: “I feel ashamed and guilty about what I have done, and I sincerely apologize to you all!.” The 37 year actress also showed her gratitude to the country and party. “Without the great policies of the Communist Party and the state, without the people’s love and care, there would be no Fan Bingbing,” she wrote on Weibo. She also said she has “fully accepted” the fine imposed on her.

What is Fan Bingbing Scandal

Fan Bingbing

The scandal first came into the public eye when a popular TV host took to the social media to expose a deep tax evasion culture which he said was as “yin-yang” agreement by naming Fan Bingbing. That post caused all the pain for Fan and her followers. There was a huge outrage on social media and news media. In China, celebrities are a big thing. They hold a status of respect and many time Government hire them to promote different government policies. So it was bound to cause outrage. Since after that Fan was held under house arrest and all of her public appearances were kept private.

So, what is “yin-yang” you may ask?

Yin-Yang means creating two contacts one for the public while other is kept private. For instance, in a social media post, a popular Tv host had shared two version of the same contract from one of Fan’s movies. In one contract the price was mentioned $1.7 Million for tax recording purpose while in another contact (secret contract) the actual price paid to Fan was much higher than the $1.7 million mentioned in public. By this formula, Fan was able to avoid paying tax worth $60 million.

He is always on the lookout for the latest technology and buys without a second thought as soon as he gets his hands on.

He has rich, but according to DC, he is not a billionaire. So, it is only fair to estimate his net worth close to a Billion dollars but not a billionaire. That is the reason why most of the sources have put the Batman at $999.99 million net worth.

But for us fan, he will always remain the richest superhero. Do you agree with me?

Green Arrow is another DC superhero with a multi-billion dollars company- The Queen Industries.

How to Run a Successful Entertainment Business- 5 Steps to Master

Entertain is not just about celebrities and their news; entertainment is a big industry. In this blog, we have been posting various news about celebrity, movies and TV shows, but today we decided to start a new series. In this series, we will share some useful guides for you all related to entertainment. We are calling this series the guide. So, for the first article, we will be talking about how you can run a successful entertainment business. So, shall we?

The entertainment business is a big industry. A businessman involved in the entertainment business offers many services like DJ for parties, singers, and musician for programmes, renting props for stage shows, clowns and entertainer for kid’s party, inviting big personalities to parties and shows. So, if you are one those businesses then here are five steps you need to follow to get sizable clients.

How to Run a Successful Entertainment Business- 5 Steps to Master

1. Find a niche that suits you

As I said, the entertainment industry is very big, so it becomes a challenge to find clients. So to make your business as relevant as possible, make sure to focus on a specific niche. Say you are interested and comfortable with renting out props for all the plays and dramas in local theater. Then make sure you focus on that only. At least when you are starting out. Once you establish a name, then you can add more and more services as you move forward. This way you get to focus on only one thing, and you can make sure your customers are happy with your services.

2. Find your target market

Finding your target customers is important for any business to start. Make sure you are targetting those who you can serve. Also, pricing should be according to your targetted customers. A well-off client can afford to pay a reasonable amount while a community school or even a government organization are usually tight on budget. So make sure you choose your right target and price according to your clients pocket.

3. Invest in buying better equipment

There is a lot of equipment requires for any business to start. Entertainment businesses are no different. You need to invest more and more on good equipment and make sure they are maintained well. Finding and sticking a single niche helps here. Instead of buying equipment for every niche, you only focus on one and buy what requires for that one. Your client might have all the equipment for that music concert you are proving musicians for, but you still carry them because what if anything stops working?

4. Advertise

This is advertisement era. You need to advertise your service to the right customers. Leave no stone unturned to advertise your business. If you are a local business providing service for a specific city, then use local means like newspapers, billboards, and pamphlets. Online ads like Facebook ads with right targetting can also do wonder. Carry business cards with you can give anyone seems interesting. Mention about your business and your services everytime you are talking with someone you are talking to.

Just remember that no matter how much you advertise your business if your clients are not happy you are not going to last longer. The best advertisement is by word of mouth. If you give the best service with the good pricing, they will bring new clients for you. So make sure you provide quality service.

5. Employee those who are passionate about their job

The entertainment industry is not a 9 to 5 desk job. You can not just force yourself to entertain others. This is why it is important to hire those who are not just good at it but passionate about it. If your job is to supply dancers for big parties, then hire the best dancers you can.

Similarly, you need to hire more people than you need. Your employees are also human beings, they also have personal problems. So, it is advisable to employ extra performers for the backup.

So, I hope you learned something from this article. If you have, drop a comment in the comment section. I’d love to read your story.

House of Cards New Teaser Reveals a Frank Underwood’s Fate: Series Premiers this November

House of Cards

On September 5th Thursday, Netflix shared a teaser on Twitter and revealed what many already had suspected. After removal of the lead character Kevin Spacey who plays Frank Underwood many fans were left guessing as to what the final season would look like. In a 25 seconds long teaser, Netflix seems to have answered that question. In the teaser, Clair Underwood, playing by Robin Wright showed speaking to Frank’s grave making it clear that the Frank Underwood was dead.

Many people had somewhat idea of where this season was heading. Especially in the last season’s final episode, it was clear that Clair would be the next president. So, I guess it wasn’t that hard for Netflix, after all, to deal with the Kevin Spacey’s controversy.

House of Cards

The teaser which was tweeted from the House of Cards official twitter account reads “You should have known.”

Also, the twitter account was tweeting all the characters which were killed in the show.

Last year the show had reached a roadblock when the main character Kevin Spacey was accused of several sexual assaults many on the sets of House of Cards. Following the controversy, Netflix had to sack Kevin Spacey from the show. That incident brought a lot of questions on the fate of House of Cards which by the way one of the most popular shows on Netflix.

In an interview Net-a-Porter’s Ajesh Patalay, Kevin’s co-actor Robin Wright (plays Clair Underwood) had said that the show was “very, very close” to ending. She further said, “Because of the climate at that time. The air was thick, you know. Harvey Weinstein… People were saying ‘We have to shut everything down, or otherwise it will look like we are glorifying and honoring this thing that’s dirty.'” Again it was her who held together the production house and convinced them not to cancel the show while others were suggesting otherwise.

Now the show is set to be premiered on November the 2nd, and we cannot wait to see what this show is bringing next.

What is Kevin Spacey Controversy

Kevin Spacey

On October 29, last year actor Anthony Rapp first alleged that Kevin had made a sexual advance on the actor back in 1986. Kevin quickly apologized the actor while saying that the incident might have been a drunken behavior. Soon fifteen other came out with a similar claim against Kevin. Following the claims, there was a lot of outrage amongst the common people, and Netflix soon felt the heat. With the rage from people, Kevin was removed from the House of Cards as well as “All the Money in the World.” movie.

On September 4th, 2018, a California district attorney ‘s office said that it wouldn’t charge actor Kevin along with Steven Seagal on 1992 sexual assault accusations. Attorney’s office says all the allegations are beyond its statute of limitations as the alleged abuse was back in 1992 and it is beyond the period a charge can be filed.

Kevin or his representatives haven’t issued any comment.

Anyway House of Cards is coming, and it will be interesting to see how the show performs in the absence of its star actor.
