What’s the Future of the Film Industry? The Tangent Agency's CEO Marc Becker Weighs In

Published on March 4th, 2017.

The film industry, like every other industry, is in a constant state of change.

Every year, new technologies emerge that force the industry to reinvent itself and that pace of disruption is only getting faster and faster.

To learn where it’s headed, Future of Everything spoke with film industry experts and asked them one question: Where is the film industry headed?

“The technology used to create theatrical-quality content will be much more accessible, benefitting talented filmmakers. Major studios must continue innovating to stay relevant, because entry from new players is inevitable (e.g. Netflix’s Beasts of No Nation, Amazon Studios’ Manchester by the Sea). Everything will be even more fast-paced resulting so we need to stay as nimble as possible. On the technology front, VR/AR will finally be available to the masses and then hopefully someone will develop the right content for those platforms. There will be a completely different release window landscape. The ability to effectively use data and machine learning will be critical to the greenlighting phase all the way through marketing and beyond. The smartphone will be even smarter and so will the consumer. Transparency, brand interaction and UGC will be very critical. At the end of the day, regardless of change, good content and sound storytelling will always be king.” - Marc Becker
