KEY ASPECTS OF THE INDUSTRY

The top movie making houses such as The Walt Disney, AT&T, Comcast, Sony, and MGM invested huge amounts in the post-production stages, by incorporating the latest technologies. For instance, in July 2018, Walt Disney announced the launch “StudioLAB” which is a new creative space that will enable filmmakers such as Disney Live-Action, Walt Disney Animation Studio, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm to collaborate and work on the latest projects. The StudioLAB will enhance these filmmakers by providing them with Virtual Reality (VR), artificial intelligence, and mixed reality experiences.

THE PANDEMIC STRESS
As per a study by Research Dive the post production market is expected to recover to its profitable state by the end of Q1/Q2 of 2023. Due to this pandemic, many key players have postponed their respective movie release dates as the post production works such as 3D effects, graphics have been kept on hold. For instance, Walt Disney Studios has pushed the dates of its most awaited movie “Doctor Strange in the Metauniverse of Madness” to 25th March 2022, which was announced to be released on 5th November 2021.
Some of the production companies such as NBCUniversal have come up with a solution to rent new movies online early on various streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Xfinity, and many others. This will be done by launching the movies for 24 hours on a rental basis. However, this idea can be proven wrong if the COVID-19 pandemic situation improves with the invention of an appropriate vaccine, as these companies will have to face huge losses as compared to the screening of these movies in the market place.
