Lynda Obst, "Sleepless in Hollywood: Tales from the New Abnormal in the Movie Business"
ISBN: 1476727740 | 2013 | EPUB | 304 pages | 1 MB
The veteran producer and author of the bestseller Hello, He Lied takes a witty and critical look at the new Hollywood.
Over the past decade, producer Lynda Obst gradually realized she was working in a Hollywood that was undergoing a drastic transformation. The industry where everything had once been familiar to her was suddenly disturbingly strange.
Combining her own industry experience and interviews with the brightest minds in the business, Obst explains what has stalled the vast moviemaking machine. The calamitous DVD collapse helped usher in what she calls the New Abnormal (because Hollywood was never normal to begin with), where studios are now heavily dependent on foreign markets for profit, a situation which directly impacts the kind of entertainment we get to see. Can comedy survive if they donâ€™t get our jokes in Seoul or allow them in China? Why are studios making fewer movies than everâ€”and why are they bigger, more expensive and nearly always sequels or recycled ideas?
Obst writes with affection, regret, humor and hope, and her behind-the-scenes vantage point allows her to explore what has changed in Hollywood like no one else has. This candid, insightful account explains what has happened to the movie business and explores whether itâ€™ll ever return to making the movies we loveâ€”the classics that make us laugh or cry, or that we just canâ€™t stop talking about.
