The Democratization of Movies

Artistic drive and creativity is what makes us uniquely human. How many of us growing up recreated our favorite movie scenes with just sheer imagination? Can you count how many times you’ve sang a song or had a fictional conversation in the shower? We are all theatrical whether we admit it or not.

Practically everyone has been completely enchanted by a movie or a television show and thought to themselves, “I want to tell my own story.” For over a century it has been mostly unavailable to the average person and only recently have all the pieces aligned where we live in a time that anyone can get their work onto a streaming service with some common sense and a few google searches. Most of us are completely unaware the magnitude of the new media renaissance age that we are in.
