Interested in a career involving the film or television industry? The options may be more broad than you think.
The 2017 THEME report released by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) shows that “the global box office in 2017 reached a new record high of $40.6 billion." This year, the “report was expanded to cover both the theatrical market and the home entertainment market -- to reflect the many ways today's global audiences consume creative content." A clear increase in digital platform viewing has emerged. With providers like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon, binge-watching has become a national pastime, and Americans now “spend nearly as much time watching video as they do on their jobs." As the industry continues to grow, career opportunities, although competitive, will continue to grow as well.
