There is an ever increasing market and demand for internet film and TV across genres and people within smaller demographics or niche markets. from a content makers stance this can be a really good market and offer new potential avenues where the restrictions are your budget and imagination.
Current divisions in the “mainstream” cinema community has increased as more and more outlets become strict about what can and can’t be said, the indie market has really taken off and allowed people to explore the potential of their own narratives and the different potential sales sites and networks.
This is of course helped by camera companies DSLR and Mirror-less, offering cheaper alternatives to the large heavy cameras. Shooting 4K has never been easier and accessible on a grassroots level.
Whole new avenues have now opened up and with the right marketing and a commercial approach to selling your project will make it a much more viable prospect to see your vision on screen and earning money.
Strategic use of social media such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have opened the doors to massive markets, most people have at least one (or more) of the major social accounts. so accessibility is not an issue to your potential audience.
From the commercial side internet TV and cinema has become an increasingly strong market force. Companies such as Streamlette (general market audience) and of course Hod TV (thriller and horror specialists) are leading the way.
