Fame and fortune messes over the entertainment biz?

Post  Cecil on Sat Sep 04, 2010 6:14 pm

So entertainment is very, extremely crowded, as I know, the main reason is for fame and fortune. Also with the biz being so crowded, Hollywood doesn't have enough money to invest into everyone in the business, therefore many people are left without money to back up their projects. So they all go the low budget way. Trying to make some project for little money hoping it will make millions in the end. Like The Blair Witch Project, a $60,000 movie that made $248 million in the box office.
Now this sounds exciting to many, take little money and make big money in the end.
Who needs Hollywood to back us up, we can do it ourselves. It sounds easy, but to do a movie like The Blair Witch Project took 3 years to do regardless of it's cost and thinking it's easier. Honestly, everything entertainment is -which many people laugh at with disbelief- all multi managing of technical things, so it's really not easy at all.
So now what we have is a vast large amount of people doing low budget projects and in most cases it doesn't pay the staff anything as well, since it's low budget. Don't forget Hollywood doesn't have enough money for everyone out there, so low budget is the way to go as entertainers are hoping they will make millions in the end to now pay their staff. But does that ever happen? No, because once again the biz is filled with fame and fortune minded people trying to be technical, so they fail and the project never goes anywhere and you never get paid or at least the credit that you worked on a successful project, which could turn the eye of some Hollywood executive to want to now pay you well.
So in a nut shell, fame and fortune minded people are causing the entertainment business to be overly crowded, which turns into a huge low budget money issue and does the project you worked on a least go anywhere? Of course not, it's mostly lead by fame and fortune minded people trying to do technical things. What do you think?
