[Aindreas Gallagher] "it feels like a ton of new players are making new money expanding narrative edited drama.

It doesn't feel like the same thing can be said about people singing."

I agree with you there. not so much talking about distribution/amount of product... I was kind of referring to the fact that, 20 odd years ago, to make a decent sounding recording you had to either spend a pile of money on fairly complicated gear and learn to use it, or hire an engineer and rent expensive studio time.

Not any more. You can make a really great sounding recording in your bedroom... you don't even need musicians. Only a few of the multitude of studios, some very well known, remain. The condo building I work in was built on the lot where Cherokee Recording Studios used to sit. Gone with all the others. Google it. :-(

And now, for less than the price of a single Digibeta deck back in the day, you can make a pretty good looking movie in your living room.

In both cases though, crap is crap. You can't buy talent. But the days of needing to be a highly trained, and highly paid, expert just to get a product out there is, IMO, on it's way out. Except at the top of the pyramid.
