“What will come of it?”


television

The television was created nearly 100 years ago. And since then, it has transformed from a medium with only a few channels to thousands of channels. First created as a means of educating the public, it has gone on to mean a form of entertainment. But with so many platforms on the internet, what will happen of the television?

platforms

The internet platforms that are rapidly eclipsing the television are Netflix, Amazon Prime, Vimeo, and Hulu. These platforms have gone from small companies, to majors in the film and television business. But will they be a long term threat to the entertainment industry?

opportunities

With regards to people looking to make a name for themselves, there will be an open availability to be creative and grow on their own. You used to have to go to Los Angeles, now, you can upload on sites. Or if you have an audience that has been built by yourself, these various platforms would be open to business. What could this mean for the entertainment business?

barriers

Will we start to see boundaries for coming into the entertainment business? Because if the people who can easily use these services grow too much, they become more of a liability than an asset. Because there are a lot of people who work for companies that are not on platforms. But the other side is platforms may start to become even tougher to work with. So like Disney who announced they will have a platform, others may have to follow.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
