Real Pockets of Hollywood
Hollywood is known for huge blockbusters, big bags of money, and Walk of Fame stars. But why are these films so highly funded, while other films are not?
Marah Archer proposes the idea that indie films, without big Hollywood backing, are more relevant, personal, and honest to the common human interest because they are the stories of people, not studios. Through statistical and factual analysis, Archer draws the conclusion that oftentimes the success of a film is based more on the marketing than the content. She purports that in this case, indie films, which promote diversity and a larger representation of ideas the over cultural homogeneity of big business movies, should receive more funding to increase the social lexicon about diversity in society. We create our own culture, and our stories should be shared.
