Michael Bay is only one guy from a lot of people from Hollywood, who want to make films or TV-series about lockdown and pandemic situation, but all of them have lots of problems right now.
As some people think, we can’t make movies about the pandemic situation, viruses, and other related things, right now. Because as they say, this is emotionally bad, people have a lot of problems right now, during the lockdown. It can look like a film about 9/11. But this is the only opinion of some people. The problem was that everyone in the United States of America criticized all films about 9/11, which is a national tragedy. But this coronavirus is another; everyone in the world is affected by it, at first sight, it does not look that bad.
But this is not the only problem. The main problem is this; it is hard to shot films right now. A lot of movies stopped their production, many films canceled or moved their dates of release. Everything because of coronavirus lockdown, studies can’t work at all or can’t work on full power. So if someone wants to make a film about a pandemic situation right now, he needs to find budget money, find a team and place who can work right now, this sounds pretty impossible or with low quality of created content. But what will be after the end of lockdown? Will be this theme about viruses still that popular and exciting for viewers, no one knows. Investing in films like that right now sounds like venture investing, pretty risky and hard.
There are many films right now, which you can watch during quarantine, which is related to this theme, and they are already ready. So this sounds like a great competition. As you see, actually there are no reasons to start making and producing any new films about coronavirus, lockdown, quarantine, viruses and all other related themes. It is hard to do that right now, and this is probably unprofitable, basically only one plus in that, that you can hype your film in this situation.
