Recently, a new way of consumption of conventional entertainment, i.e. watching movies has become extremely popular. While watching movies has been a go-to activity for the longest time, the online streaming of the said movies has been a rather new development, especially in India. With the introduction of YouTube movies, online websites like solarmovie Netflix, and Prime videos; the creation and consumption of content have increased umpteen folds.
Why is it a breath of fresh air for the creators?
With the busy schedules and the attention span of the audience shrinking, it had become hard for creators to keep the audience hooked.
The typical structure of movies being 1 to 2 hours long, it was hard to share the plethora of stories and characters. Online movies have made the concept of short films boost.
With the zero involvement of censorship, breathing life into characters and making them more human has become easier for the creators.
The response time is extremely short, especially for YouTube. One can gauge the reach and effect of the content almost immediately in the form of views and likes.
Benefits For The Audience
With every luxury on the tips of our fingers or rather on the screen of our smartphones, leaving the comfort of our houses to watch a movie seems a bit tedious when all we want to do is sit back and unwind on the weekend. In this way streaming movies has proved itself to be an early Christmas present. While in theatres we could watch only the latest releases, now on our laptops we can watch even the old classics at any time of the day without a worry. Online movies have bridged the gap between the creator and the consumer of the created content vastly.
Now for every kind of creative, there is an audience and vice versa. Even though at first it seemed that this form of entertainment would only attract the youth, this trend has caught onto people of all ages. In more ways than not, streaming of movies has made everybody’s lives not only easier but also more fun and interesting. It is as if it was formed out of a mold built specifically keeping the comfort, both creative and generic, in mind.
