Homework

The gleaming surface betrays the fact that like the rest of the world,Hollywood is experiencing an economic slump. In the buildup to the Oscars, LA is putting on its hit-it-big show of  shimmering decadence. Beneath the surface, timesare harder than they've been in decades. And it's only just  the beginning. Patrons and part organizers say plans for Oscars' celebrations have slowed and budgets for festivities have been cut, some by as much as seventy-five percent.This is what is known as a gift sweet, where anyone who is remotely famous get freebies bestowed upon them. These vendors noted that a photograph of Kate Winslet with that product can has as much impact as an expensive art campaign.

"Looking around here, there is plenty being given away. There is gadget, like these bluetooth enabled sunglasses. Over here pieces of poppa ready to be given out. But it's also the opportunity here to give something to charity and note to the effect that ultimate decadence can be seen as a bit insensitive in these tough times. Over time the effects of the downturn on the movie industry could be dramatic.

" If it's a five-act recession, I feel it was just beginning to start that act two.how it's going to  affect the real financing in those studios in Hollywood?how it's really going to affect them in the number of films they are going to make? I imagine, significantly. I imagine that they will be seen major problems with certain studios,  that will be major, pulling back on the whole series of different production levels. I think you will see a big effect in the next couple of years.

But there are a few better places in the world, putting on the show; Hollywood has always been adept at creating illusions. It's likely we will see more uplifting films like Slumdog Millionaire, aimed at distracting us from the financial woes. Asides from that, the audiences may not see the impact of the recession, but the studios will be struggling, and there is no Hollywood ending in sight, I’m Amanda Walker, Sky news, Los Angeles.
