The chart is very telling and confirms what I intuitively knew was happening.
I do have an OUTSTANDING fiction book that I intend on writing and would make for a great movie (and no, I'm not just saying that, it would be an instant blockbuster), but it will have to wait for the day I am independently wealthy on economics and non-fiction books that I can afford the time to pursue such a leisurely pursuit.
Regardless, what Hollywood is suffering from is the precise, exact same thing government is suffering from -
I've cited this before, but worthless people with no intention, desire, work ethic, let alone, ability flood the government, public sector, non-profit, and (naturally) art world.
Who declares a poli-sci major?
A lazy egomaniacal 17 year old.
Who declares a journalism major?
A lazy, but still egotistical, 17 year old.
And who declares a "film major?"
Again, an equally lazy, talentless 17 year old who doesn't like math.
Mark my words - in the future the TRUE masterpieces and blockbusters will come from people who did NOT study the arts, but rather studied life and lived it. They will not be spoiled suburbanite brats whose parents paid for their hobby to major in "theater." They will not be the adult-children whose parents made large donations to art museums to have their 45 year old child's crappy art put up in a display. They will be the truck driver who had a lot of time on the road to think about (and pull from his personal experiences) a truly great work of art. They will come from the security guard who has the time to ponder and hammer out a great plot. They will come from the 80 hour a day workaholic who gets laid off and channels his/her energies towards some creative production.
It will never, and I mean, NEVER come from the hipster-infested coffee shops and cafes of conformists and intellectual weaklings who rely on government subsidy.
