Evolution of Media

Just a few years back, we all thought that technology has become very helpful in terms of information dissemination. Media has become so powerful through radio, print and especially through Television. Everything that needed to be shared to the public was easily done so through TV ads, News segments, radio commercials, billboards, and other media devices. Who would have thought that technology could push it farther still?

The birth of the internet paved a new way for media to walk through. Now, we do not have to wait for the 6 o’clock news to air on TV to find out the latest news in fashion, politics, celebrities and everything and anything under the sun that is worth noting. Now, we just fire up our laptops or mobile phones and Google up whatever it is that we want to know. In split seconds, search results that match your search would pop up your screen, ready for you to read.

Now, we can find out what is going on in any place around the globe, no matter where we are. We can go back in history and read about what happened 30years ago today, and still, the World Wide Web can provide you with answers. From the simplest task of finding the store nearest your location, to finding out how to commute from Canada to Vietnam, it’s there, it’s available.

Advertising has also taken a new form. Pop ups and ad banners on different sites become the new mode of advertisement and has become very effective, too.

There are various companies available that aim to help people advertise products by aiding them in their connection with their clients. In Canada, one of the newest in connection services is Broad Connect, and people have been impressed with the features of Broadconnect.ca hosted PBX system, as it is one of the most reliable systems today.

This company, along with many more companies, are able to sync business systems into one, making it easier for business people and employers to monitor their daily production and the daily performance of their employees.

Indeed, online media has become a total game changer. Now, everything is instant and fast, that is why competition has become more difficult and the required skill set to be able to compete has also changed and has become more demanding. Nonetheless, people who use the internet should be more cautious and skeptic about the things they read. They should be able to discern reliable sources from bogus sources, and they should be diligent enough to do their own research before believing anything that goes up the internet, just to be sure.

The Difficult World of A Movie Star

Some people think that being an actor or an actress is an easy and fabulous job. They think that they do nothing but smile at cameras and make money out of faking tears and showing a pretty face, or by hiring doubles to make it look like they know how to dive, do tumbling skills, and whatever a movie requires them to do. I may not be an actor but I can sympathize to the fact that what they do, is not an easy job. Sure, they may make millions out of it and they may live a life of comfort and fame, but it is not always that way.

There are times that they put their lives in danger especially when they go for movies that are risky and dangerous. Another thing that most actors and actresses have to give up is their private lives. Once they rise to stardom, they almost become like public properties, where everybody thinks they have the right to know where their favorite actors and actresses are, what they are eating, what they are wearing, and so forth. To forego the pleasures of privacy is not an easy thing to do, especially when people then start to always have high hopes and expectations from you.

Another thing that these actors and actresses have to constantly struggle with is their appearance. Not only will their fans hate them if they don’t like their new haircut or their new tan, the directors and producers will also tend to lessen their exposure or whatnot. It is also amazing how actors that start on a film that take years to finish, are able to maintain their physique despite the time that has passed them doing the same film or series. For instance, if you portray an FBI agent in a series, you have to make sure that you look exactly the same in the first season of the show. In the show you might have only been showcased for 24 days, but in real life the filming could have taken months, and in those months, you have to ensure that you looked exactly the way you are from the start of the shoot to the end.

These are just but some of the things that movie stars have to endure in order to give the public, especially their fans, the entertainment they seek. They give up their privacy and they have to sacrifice a lot of self-time and other activities.

The next time you bash on a movie star, hopefully you would realize that they are just human too and they also work very hard to keep their stardom status.

Supporting the Movie Industry Through Art

I have always been a fan of good movies. I watch all sorts of movies from action films, drama, fantasy, science fiction, comedy, love stories, romantic comedies, and even cartoons and real life adaptations and book adaptations. Whenever I hear about a good movie, I would make sure that I do not miss watching it so that I could collect more and more inspiration for my mini sets.

My house has a room filled with my creations of mini sets from different movies that I loved dearly. I have mini sets from the most inspiring and memorable scenes from Titanic, Frozen, Jumanji, Jurassic Park, 50 first dates, High school musical, and many more. When I make a set for a movie, it is like my own way of showing that I was moved by it or simply entertained.

These mini sets have been with me since I started doing them, which is about 3 years now. They are my dearest possessions and they somehow showcase my growth over the years. I would be devastated if anything happens to even a single one of them.

For the security of my creations, I make sure that my house is free from any type of possible harm. I make sure they are well placed and that they will not get in the way of other people living in the house.

This hobby is just but one of the many things I do to show my love and appreciation for the movie industry. Maybe, someday, I would be able to work in a movie crew.

Unlike other people that wish to become famous and be part of movies, I have a different desire. I wish to be a part of many successful movies, but I want to be behind the camera. I want to be part of the creative team that actually makes the magic happen in movies.

Being able to find out how they do the things they do, the lights, sounds, the effects, creating set after set, they seem to not run out of things to do, and that I really wonder how it would be to work that way.

I would find so much joy in being able to serve the movie industry. But at the moment, I will be contented in supporting them through my continued patronage of their art, as well as in perfecting my handicraft of mini sets.
