Maybe so but again that doesnt change the reality of the golden rule. Typically you get what you pay for and when it comes to photography or film making there has never been a more proven constant its not just about price.
There will always be those that want something better than the rest and be willing to pay for it... and pay HUGE.
Last time I checked film budgets were going UP not down and bringing in more profit not less.
Maybe I did not explain myself properly or the fact that you took one phrase and put it out of context, made you think something different that what I meant.
my point was that if we are smart, we will be able to work more than we ever did, because there is more demand for content.
all these new changes, are actually providing more demand for content and are generating more request for visual artists work.
I was mostly referring at the cost of post producing, editing and distributing content, which in Asia can be lower.
Samsung and LG and similars, also own the companies (or partially own) who distribute content on the LCD displays on many countries.
since costs are lower, it became possible to appeal clients to produce more.
More of this..... LCD panels allow to put much more content than printed space, where you could put one advertisement, now you can put 6 or 7 or more looping on a LCD display.
clients will pay less for that space, but there will be more demand for content to fill the space on those displays.
Then if the clients are ready to pay a lot more or a lot less, for the creator of the content, it is a different story that will vary depending on the persons involved.
there will always be clients ready to pay more for who they rate high. I'm not denying that. It was not even the point of my previous post.
It is true that you almost always get what you pay for, but it is also true that many task of the process of preparing the content for the viewer and distributing, have become much easier to be done and do not require geniuses.
As for quality, "unfortunately" in Asia they can deliver very good stuff in term of graphic design and quality. Those guys are ready to put more hours and are most of the time more meticulous than we are in the west.
