How Gaming can Help People Discover New Music

October 10, 2019

The growth in the video game market has been nothing less than astounding. In 2018, the global video game industry generated a record $138 billion in revenue, with territories like China, India and the U.S. showing double-digit revenue growth, according to the consulting firm NewZoo. What’s even more impressive is that this growth in the category is likely just the tip of the iceberg. In 2019, Pew Research estimated that there are now more than 5 billion people globally that have smartphones, and as the Internet and 5G are further introduced in Eastern territories like China and India, there will be millions of more people who will be able to leverage smartphones and the Internet to tap into the global gaming ecosystem.

4 Stocks To Buy To Invest in Virtual Reality

Article | June 13, 2020

The virtual reality market has been hailed as the "next big thing" for decades, but VR has repeatedly disappointed consumers with mediocre hardware products and software experiences.

FILM PRODUCERS FLIP BARGAINING TABLE WITH UNIONIZING EFFORT

Article | May 21, 2021

Movie producers often find themselves negotiating with talent and crew members, and/or their production union representatives, over pay and benefits. But a group of 108 producers flipped the script Thursday in announcing they were looking to form a union of their own.Higher minimum pay and health benefits were cited as the two major reasons. While the group, called the Producers Union, boasts some heavy hitters such as Chris Moore (Manchester by the Sea) and Rebecca Green (It Follows), they made it clear that the traditional image of a Hollywood producer is misleading. Many are just getting by, project to project, looking for a breakout hit to up their quote. According to a survey released this year, 41% of producers made less than $25,000 in the pre-pandemic boom times of 2019. The Producers Union has developed a constitution with provisions for dues and diversity initiatives, with the aim of eventually negotiating a collective bargaining agreement with distributors and other film financiers. Previous efforts by producers to unionize have been thwarted by the courts and the National Labor Relations Board, according to Variety, as the NLRB saw them as supervisors and employers – which creates a high barrier to organizing.
