Video content presents an out of body experience like no other.
It captivates and makes people erupt in joy or sorrow, among a myriad of emotions that human beings are capable of feeling. The director wants his or her audience to feel a range of emotions, as the viewer tries to understand the plot of the film in question. The best directors are capable of turning our worlds upside down, and this is the reason why fictional characters and plotlines resonate so much in the real world, with fans of a film imagining a story’s plot line resonating in their own daily lives.
The internet has democratized the media landscape, as viewing choices have exploded in number. From traditional Television networks to internet giants like Google and Amazon embedding themselves into ‘Smart TVs’ to YouTube and subscription OTT platforms like Netflix and Hotstar, we live in an era of virtually infinite video content. Now all we need is to filter the choices around us in order to find the most suitable recommendations for us to watch something (like Netflix’s recommendation algorithm or suggestions from friends and family)
