How Can Filmmakers Thrive In the Future Film Industry?
In this episode, FA CEO Lydia Hurlbut and her cinematographer husband, Shane Hurlbut, ASC, explore the ever-changing film industry. Ever since its inception in 1895, the landscape of the industry has evolved with technology, updated methodologies, and even ways audiences watch what is now dubbed “content.” However, with the advent of the digital revolution and now the injection of AI tech in recent years, it will affect the job market for filmmakers and shift both mindsets and opportunities.
Throughout the discussion, Shane shares his personal experience working with new technologies to support the challenges of tighter schedules, shrinking budgets, and navigating the job market to make yourself into a Swiss Army Filmmaker — because the next generation of filmmakers must understand and be proficient in more than one area of filmmaking.
Meanwhile, Lydia threads the needle for the kind of mindset that begets leadership and imparts some much-needed wisdom to filmmakers about the impact of effective communication and team-building for lasting success.
Shane is famous for pioneering new technologies and getting that big-budget look at a modest budget. This is just one of the many reasons to follow Filmmakers Academy!
