It's much cheaper and easier for filmmakers now to make original films (ie if you have an original idea) than it has ever been. Sadly, easy access also means a slew of really mediocre and bad films. However, the fact that so many people can now enter the world of filmmaking means that if you want to stand out you need to up your game in all aspects. It has changed a lot since the golden era of the studio cinema (Hollywood), but i tell you... World cinema is yet to reach its artistic and expressionistic peak!!!
