Today by far was one of the coolest experiences today. I was really enjoyed learning deeply from the production side of telenovelas. One thing that I've enjoyed learning is how other countries government play an effect in their tv production. Today during our special guest speaker, all I could think about was the comparisons between America's market to other countries in the world.
It makes me sad that countries around the world have rules on what type of television shows stream in their countries. Venezuela especially is hard to think that ten years ago people had more freedom with the telenovelas.
Also, I've found it interesting that other productions around the world are picking up telenovelas and making spins off of it. Today when I heard during the lecture that these writers aren't getting paid either is very sad. I wish patents were taking more seriously around the world, and I agree that production companies especially Netflix would make a good investment to take producers and writers from countries like Venezuela who are out of business to help with their remaking of shows. The only problem would be the culture difference.
I also would like to know overtime more about other countries who have problems with production and showing certain things that they want. Also, I think it's only fair to see what type of rules are on production of television on shows that air in the United States. I wonder if there are rules in our country that we are not even aware of in Hollywood.
Overall, I would love to see the United States produce more series like telenovelas and play maybe 2-3 nights a week versus once a week.
