[Bob Zelin] "Does a 16 year old who is watching this care if it was shot in 8K on a RED at 5:1 compression, using AVID Media Composer with a 2019 Mac Pro with dual AMD Vega Pro II cards ? Its GOOD ENOUGH, and she got 3.8 Million views on this.

There does seem to be a healthy co-existence between the professional video world and the low/no budget world.

I see my 15 year old daughter as a barometer. She's an avid TikTok fan and contributes her own videos to the platform. The viewing numbers for TikTok videos are stunning to say the least. And if anyone isn't familiar with the platform, here's their trending videos:

At the same time, my daughter is also a devoted fan of high quality television shows like HBO's Euphoria and a wide variety of Netflix and Hulu series.

I see a clear separation between the professional video/film world and the amateur internet video world. But for someone like my daughter, who's grown up a digital native, I don't think there's any separation at all. It's all just entertainment.

Hopefully, as long as there remains this balanced demand for content the industry can remain viable for us professionals. Hard to predict where it's headed though.
