How are films financed?

The studio system is a business method where Hollywood movie studios control all aspects of their film productions, including production, distribution, and exhibition. Dominated by the Big Five studios, all personnel including actors, crew, directors, and writers were under contract to the studios.

  • Linear vs non-linear - Classical Hollywood follows linear continuity (except for the occasional flashbacks). New Hollywood plays around with non-linear (Memento, Run Lola Run, etc).
  • Static shots vs POV shots - Classical Hollywood also like the standard medium shots and such. New Hollywood experiments with shots and angles (Panic Room, Requiem for a Dream, etc).
  • Glamorous vs Realistic - Classical Hollywood was all about beauty and glamour. New Hollywood tries to be more gritty and realistic (Heat, The Revenant, etc)
