"Revamp the Business Model"

In my opinion this is much easier said then done.
Further more, I see no real viable business model on the horizon.
Soon all of what we know of as “Post Production” will change dramatically.
There is no barrier to entry, Distance will become meaningless,
The schools (now there’s a profitable part of this biz) are pumping out way more graduates then there will ever be jobs for. I recently read of a new expression
In the NY Times about companies looking for employees that are
22x22x22, Which turns out to be recent grads that are 22 years old
willing to work 22 hours a day for 22,000.00 a year. Jingle Bells

Schemes like the one being put together by Companies like AFRAME
will eat everybody’s lunch. Some will say the bandwidth just isn’t there
I say
I got a 55” LED TV, No more 19” B&W Zenith
I got my communicator er: IPhone
I got some 9 gig drives that I bought for 5,000.00
I lost my Dial Up Modem and got a cable modem
I threw my 80,000.00 Media Composers in the dumpster
And you don’t need a Kscope to do nothing no more.

Just Wait and everything in your shop will be worthless, everything.
No matter what you buy it’s going to be worthless in a year or two.
The only thing left to sell is creativity and the ability to get something done on time.
So the question becomes,
How much can you sell that for?
Will it be enough to cover overhead and turn a profit?
Do your clients really value it?

So you say revamp the business model, I’m not buying
It’s just nice-speak for a Doo Doo business.
And I would do absolutely everything I could to prevent my children
from entering this industry.

Sad but true coming from the former owner of a post house and rental company
who made a good living for 30 years at it.
