The film industry is an ever-changing, ever-growing industry that evolves alongside the society and technology that produces its films. As the new year begins, here at 344 Audio we're excited for the new developments on the horizon.
Here are three forecasts for the coming year:
Streaming At Home:
In response to COVID-19, many people made a shift to remote work. And over the past two years, many employees and employers have continued to work remotely and are eager to do so for the foreseeable future.
This eagerness to stay home is a good sign for digital streamers. It's likely that the vast majority of films will be released digitally before entering the cinema, especially with huge studios like Disney already hosting their own streaming services.
AR / VR Filmmaking:
As the AR and VR industries continue to boom, it offers a plethora of opportunities for the more adventurous filmmakers to create immersive experiences. With Virtual Reality placing the audience in the world and Augmented Reality showing the world through a character's eyes, these technologies will allow us to interact with our favourite films like never before.
As filmmaking technologies become more affordable for budget-conscious filmmakers, it's plausible that the trend of producing independent films will continue. Independent filmmakers are accustomed to working within small budgets and maximizing the technology they have at their disposal. You can now even use AI like DeepStory to help create your scripts and storylines, while programmers are also developing Voice Synthesis and AutoFoley AI software that could help video editors soundtrack their own productions.
