As we join the Juneteenth celebration throughout the country this week, marking the day in Texas that the last slaves were informed of their freedom, let’s look at the history behind Juneteenth in a different way. Lincoln enacted the Emancipation Proclamation to go into effect on January 1st, 1863...

California says film and TV shoots can start June 12. But big changes are coming

This is helpful info on New Normal for production.
"…Many of the recommendations set by state governments as well as by productions are expected to raise film and TV budgets, according to analysts and executives. Shooting costs could increase by 10% to 20% per day, JP Morgan media analyst Alexia Quadrani wrote in a Thursday note to clients. Larger productions with extensive location shoots and more cast and crew members probably will take longer to come back than smaller movies and shows, such as horror films and sitcoms, which are often confined to soundstages…"

And, this is interesting.

The film and TV industry is eager to know when and where production is going to be coming back full force, or even half force. As we know, there is no single answer for this, as post-COVID re-opening guidelines are being set case-by-case, per state and local government offices. However, the AMPTP’...

How top digital publishers are set up to get into show business - Digiday

More video content for all your screens

"...For the big digital publishers, the decision to get into show business does not stem from Facebook’s and Snapchat’s decisions to do the same; instead, these companies look at entertainment content as a way to build their respective brands while also creating new — and multiple — revenue opportunities. It also doesn’t hurt that the bottom has dropped out of the display ad market, leaving these companies with fewer obvious paths to living up to their lofty valuations...

Show-building also opens digital publishers to a lucrative aspect of the film and TV business: licensing. A show sold to Go90, which has a period of exclusivity, can be repackaged and sold to another platform at a later date, or in a different geography, or to another content producer that wants to remake the show for a different market. If the show’s successful enough, there’s also merchandising. The opportunities, if done right, are seemingly endless..."

BuzzFeed, Bleacher Report, Mashable and Refinery29 want to get into show business. Here's how they are set up to do it.

Seven more TV series filming in NYC this season

GOOD NEWS! More productions filming in NYC.

With seven additional television series filming in New York City so far this year—on top of many that have been here for a number of seasons—the city is on track to have another record year of growth in the film-production industry.

During the last season, which ended in May, a record 52 prime-time episodic television series filmed in New York City, a 13% increase from the previous year. During the same time period, the city was home to 336 feature-film projects, an almost 40% increase from 2015.
