I need some assistance with these assignment. american independent cinema Thank you in advance for the help! Tzioumakis is more definitive in his definition as he describes it as one of those “low-budget projects made by mostly young filmmakers with a strong personal vision away from the influence and pressures of the major conglomerates that control tightly the American film industry” (Tzioumakis 2006, p.1). Emmanuel Levy, a noted film critic, on the other hand, contributes his definition of it as he calls it “a fresh, low budget movie with a gritty style and offbeat subject matter that express the filmmaker’s personal vision” (Levy 2001, p.1). This definition brings to mind such movies as Easy Rider, Blair Witch Project, Night of the Living Dead, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, A Clockwork Orange, Dr Strangelove and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory etc. All were alternatives to the Hollywood blockbuster movies which were superbly glossy, highly budgeted and shot inside vast, sophisticated company-owned studios and produced along mainstream, conservative themes
and shot with special effects that intend to net gargantuan profits from TV rights and DVD sales rather than from theatre admissions. These indie films are designed to be contrapuntal to those spectacular movies produced and distributed by the so-called ‘ Big Six’ which includes Sony Columbia, Viacom Paramount, AOL Time Warner, ABC Disney, MGM/UA, and NBC Universal.
There’s a rub, however, to all the definitions aforestated. Several movie companies had claimed that what they’re producing are independent films despite the fact that these are highly budgeted and extravagantly made that even compete with Hollywood blockbusters produced by the Big Six. In fact, the producer the Howard Hughes, Leonardo de Caprio-starred biopic, The Aviator, exults that “this movie is the biggest independent movie ever made” (Tzioumakis 2006, p.2). and rightly so because it was produced at a staggering cost of $115 million.
And not only this movie made such a bold claim. .
