Hollywood@Home
Dallas, Texas August 11th, 2005 — F marketingour million U.S. households are now using digital video cameras and editing software every month to create movies at home, with roughly 750,000 doing so on a weekly basis, according to Parks Associates’ Global Digital Living.
This project, a multinational study of consumer technology trends, found movie making is a growing niche market for technology products in the U.S. Recent high-profile examples of homemade movies, including Star Wars fan films and the theatrical release of My Date with Drew, should further fuel interest in digital video and drive the purchase and use of digital camcorders and video-editing software.
“Home filmmaking is somewhat akin to gaming,” said John Barrett, director of research for Parks Associates. “It requires a high-end computer with a considerable amount of storage, memory, and processing power. Apple is very strong in this market right now, but as it grows, I expect we’ll see more efforts by Windows-based competitors to tap into the demand.”
The Global Digital Living project is a study of worldwide consumer technology trends. The project surveyed Internet households in thirteen nations: France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Canada, Taiwan, Japan, India, China, South Korea, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
