Hollywood film producers, haunted by the effects of the Covid-19 crisis, have downsized their production plans, and are proposing to substitute state-of-the-art movie cameras with basic video cameras.
Future movie productions will not be grand iconic presentations, but rough, unready displays more akin to skin flicks from the 1960s. "We are going to be reduced to auteurs. You know, like Warhol or Felini," said one Hollywood insider.
Actors are terrified of the future. "My closeup will be degraded immensely. This will kill me," said one prominent star who thinks their time in the sun is over.
Well they shouldn't panic. I lost my leg to a Bengal tiger. That's worse, I say.
