Statistics and facts about the film industry
The global film industry shows healthy projections for the coming years, as the global box office revenue is forecast to increase from about 38 billion U.S. dollars in 2016 to nearly 50 billion U.S. dollar in 2020. The U.S. is the third largest film market in the world in terms of tickets sold per year, only behind China and India. More than 1.2 billion movie tickets were sold in the U.S. in 2015. There are about 5,800 cinema sites in the U.S. as of 2015. About 14 percent of Americans go to the movies about once a month, seven percent go see movies in the movie theater twice or three times a month, whereas 37 percent go a few times a year. This is a considerable share taking into account 53 percent of American adults prefer watching movies at home.
Now think about the impact movies have on the human mind as whole.
Every single frame is a “ message” . Every frame can be dangerous by influencing the human mind. Every frame is a subliminal message that is indelibly imprinted
In the subconscious of the brain.
Then think about the violence about the messages “Movies “bring into our homes
Today. Conflicts- blood- guts- drugs- sex and more mahem. The message frames
are dangerous. Far more dangerous then Guns.
Think about the effects the violent ‘frame ‘ messages have on the minds of our
Young? They are devastating and could well turn a reasonable normal young
Person into a killer. Brainwashing is nothing new. Adolph Hitler did it expertly
creating the infamous Hitler Youth and killers at the concentration camps.
China and North Korea is doing it as we speak. Beginning with the very young
from birth , they don’t raise human beings. They raise ruthless communist
dictators. Indoctrinated and taught to hate and kill any one who does not
Conform to their teachings.
Guns do kill people. But only if in the hands of those who have been indoctrinated
to pull the trigger. And. Movies do just that. Frame by frame. Message by message.
Holly wood no longer subscribe to a self censorship code of ethics as it did in it’s
Golden age of movies. Instead it indelibly implants the worst of human bahaviour
and violence in young minds all over the world. Hollywood has become the
most powerful and devastating delivery system the worst of human behavior
in the world. More powerful then the United States Government.” Frames”.
“Frames” was first published in l997 at the beginning of the digital revolution
by this writer for the American Academy of video arts. Movies since then have
become worse. Continue to follow frames articles under ‘ Comments on our
