Entertainment and arts industry has been a major part of everyone’s lives. With operas and theatricals closely attached to people of yesteryears, the charm of this industry has grown every day. However, with the inclusion of commercial business in this industry, it seems that this industry is wheezing from the clutches of such commercialization.
3 factors highlighting commercial business crushing entertainment and arts industry
- Rows for royalties
Money is always one of the important factors for any of the industries. But with changing times, artists are exposed more to labels, which in turn promise them with royalties out of their expectations. Where initially artists used to produce their works, focusing more on their passion, it currently is deviated towards money. However, there are also issues on royalties. There are labels that are not so keen on parting with the promised amount. As a result, artists focus more on solving the row that on their art.
- Social exposure
In the present time, people are more focused on seeing themselves on digital platforms. With a rise of being in trend on popular social media sites and platforms like YouTube, this current generation is focused on commercializing their art. Their concentration is not more on their personal development or helping in the advancement of this industry.
- More pressure to make more profit
There are certain studio executives who bluntly accept and relate to this fact. Where mainstream television shows and movies are entwined with the lives of common people, there is a rush of these studios to getting a new makeover- changing into giant corporations. The idea of people in this sector is to constantly maintain the air of pressure around the artists and other important members of this industry so that higher profit can come in.
Commercialization is important in every industry but to a certain extent. It is the sole responsibility of people to take care that commercial business remains as a supporter and not the reason for extinction of the real entertainment and arts industry.
