Is anyone still making Arts and Entertainment?
« on: March 20, 2020, 06:39:27 pm »
Is the near future made entirely of Youtubers? Solo guitar singer song-writers? Musical comedians? One-man bands - no, the horror  :hand:

(The Now Show is really creepy right now with no studio audience.)

No orchestras, no ballet. Linedancing will require much wider tellys.

Even where stuff is still being made, lots of it won't be released (like the new Bond).

who wants to predict how this will work out? I know we have a few professionals on the forum.

All my gigs and church meetings have been cancelled for the forseeable future so I am spening most of my time in our home studio. Mrs. road-runner is a piano teacher and as schools are closed she is at home all the time apart from going shopping for her sister who returned from Lebanon last week and must do at least 2 weeks of self-isolation.

With Glastonbury, Eurovision and other headline arts and sports events cancelled we will all have to sit this out until it is safe to start mixing with other folk again. Maybe this will go some way to helping save the planet from all the toxic stuff we produce such as burning fossil fuels in trains, planes, cars, buses and lorries.

Netflix is more popular than ever. Disney+ is launching next week.
Will be more films going straight to streaming, and not bothering with a cinema release.

Which will bypass me, I'm afraid.

Some sorts of recorded music that is not solo instrument and/or voice can still be made:

where each instrument/voice are recorded individually,

music created on a computer.

Street photography, my preferred genre, is mainly architecture now.

I write books that no one other myself and my wife read. I quite like this. I consider it as crystallizing my imagination. If I'm feeling generous I give myself a three-star review and complain about the poor ending.

My son says he's going to use his enforced six month holiday to write a book. Sci-fi. He's written the first chapter already. I'm going to be his editor, proofreader and audience. I'll let you know how it turns out...*

All my gigs have been cancelled. I thought I might do some recording. Whether or not I think the results will be fit to disseminate amongst the wider population remains to be seen (or heard).
There's no vibrations, but wait.

I think my wife may go a bit crazy now all her rehearsals and performances are cancelled. I've offered to turn the next couple of weeks into a musical. She loves musicals.

The look, oh the look, she gave me. Purest daggers.

But if this is oblivion, I'm going out singing.

We're moving to working from home (VFX). The MPAA has seemingly relented and relaxed their security requirements. Still a few technical hurdles to be  solved. However, since most on-set production has stopped, we will run out of work in a few months time.
It wont affect me too much, as I'm changing career after the current project anyways, but I suspect we'll see a delayed down-turn, followed by a crazy upturn as the industry kicks into gear again...even if it's a prolonged recession, the movie industry has traditionally done well during recessions, as people still want to be entertained..

Ours is architecture plus a 135€ fine for being out.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Construction of the future Mr von Brandenburg's studio continues in spite of the Lurgi, so you may expect, once the soundproofing has gone in...

Mrs. road-runner had someone from the church ask whether she can record two ancient hymns (so far out of copyright the composers have decomposed) so that they can be sent to everyone in the congregation this evening.

There's plenty of guitars knocking around Schloß von Brandenburg, so I should not be at all surprised to find a bass there too :P
