California Governor Signs Law To Protect Child Actors

Governor Jim Brown has singed a law in which bar registered sex offenders who have shown minors working for the entertainment industry. this law requires criminal background checks for maneges, photographers, and other unsupervised compatibility to young performers. this law has gained momentum since last year when the arrest of a convict child molester, who had been working as a casting associate with children. up until this point only agents and studio teachers have been subjected to fingerprinting and background checks.
this is going to change the industry in a very major way for the better. the fact seeing that the government is actually making an effort on helping protect child actors is great and this is truly great because now if people actually want to get somewhere weather it be in music, film, or just getting recognized they can feel a bit more safe with this law taking act. they do not longer have to worry about if they can, "trust" somebody with their work. for instance if a teenager wants to become a successful director one day and some strange producer comes out of no where i highly doubt that they would
"trust" that person.
this is significantly huge because as a student i want to know one hundred and fifty percent that i am safe with the people that i am surrounded by especially if its having to do with the entertainment industry. and i know that if i ever want to become something to do with that side of the industry i would be very highly cautious because you honestly cant determine if someone is really bad or not, and the fingerprinting is really a great thing because it show if someone is telling you the truth or not. I also know that if i are to become a future filmmaker i would make sure that all of my staff, and crew are 100% clean on their record books and would never even think about doing anything like molesting a child in their life.
i believe it is great that this part of the industry is starting to take percussion on who people can rile on and i just wonder every single industry will be in the future? will they be 100% legitimate? will they gradually start slipping ? or will they actually help you make it into success?.

Netflix Unfazed By Growing Competition From Amazon, Exec Says

a new contender is attempting to take competition with Netflix after so many years, but according to chief content officer ted sarandos he is not concerned with the competition because of a deal with Netflix and Epix are going negotiate in the near future. The only reason why Netflix is actually getting Epix's is because Epix is exclusive, so therefore not so many people want to pay so much just to see one movie. Ted sarandos believes that this is very important because “the most-watched content on Netflix is exclusive to Netflix.” sarandos also states that Netflix has more  “data-centric decisions than most networks."
I actually use Netflix every single day wheater it be a television serious of a show, or a movie I've been longing to see. and what really attracted my attention was the fact that in the title is states that Netflix is having a growing contender from amazon. I have used Netflix ever since it barley came out on the Wii, and its incredible to know that after all of these years not a lot of company's have actually competed with Netflix before. its really important because for so many years Netflix has been the main site for watching movies and T.V. shows, for cheap, and honestly i think that Netflix is getting burned out. it has the same old movies, and it is often a rare occasion when new releases come out right away. it is obvious for anyone who actually uses the site to tell that the movies they have in each categories are not really that great. it takes them months to update and get new titles but then again no other site was able to contend with a site like this until now.
Honestly this is quite sad. i hate the fact that is has taken so long for another industry too actually step up their game in a impacted way. but I'm bothered because Netflix is deciding to improve their site just because they have a competition now, when Netflix could have improved it since whenever they have had there new ideas but they decide to only update it because they finally have a contender. its sad too know how much they actually care about their consumers when you get straight down to it. as an actual consumer of Netflix this gets me a little mad because they should ALWAYS look for new ideas too help, and improve their site, and as a future filmmaker this is just like i said before sad.
this makes me actually realize how many ideas industys have for the future that they just have not used yet. this makes me Wonder if all of the new features that are barley coming out in every site where brainstormed years ago, and are barley being noticed and uploaded now or, are they actually new fresh ideas?
