As global lockdowns ease, broadcasters are challenged to stay creative & keep feeding content starved subscribers in the midst of delayed and suspended production of Films & TV series. No one can predict which affected areas of the world will be open to resume production first. What we do know, though, is that eventually productions will resume. Big buck production houses and major OTT streaming services built on offering new options every week — or even every day face more of a challenge if the coronavirus causes long-term production delays. How is the industry coping, and what's the solution?
- With massive delays in screening of their blockbusters, are film companies thinking of handing out their hit releases to streaming platforms where the earning potential is significantly less?
- How is social distancing impacting the ability of a cast and crew to film?
- How to adapt your content given the restrictions that are currently in place?
- Will content producers and television networks be forced to use new technology to both facilitate production and to engage users in new ways?
- Could clearly articulated regulations be the key to ensuring that content production can swiftly resume?
