The most underrepresented

According to the WGA's 2016 Hollywood Writers Report, just two Native American writers were employed in film in 2014 (the latest year for which data is available), compared with 1,494 white writers. Native Americans accounted for 1.2 percent of the U.S. population in 2014 but in film represented just 0.1% of writers, making them the demographic group with the most disproportionate underrepresentation by a factor of 12 to 1.

So, if we do start making movies in another year or three, I wonder if Castalia Studios will be celebrated as the first Native American-led film studio?

I'm guessing no.

"... making them the demographic group with the most disproportionate underrepresentation by a factor of 12 to 1."

This is the bullshit that drives me crazy. They use "under-represented" as if that proves something. As if it proves discrimination.

Here is one for you. Look up how many women in the US are veterinarians and then see how many of those are black. It must be "institutional racism" since the blacks get extra help the whole way though school.

It is as if they left is so DAMN stupid that they don't realize that different groups just might have different likes and dislikes. They might even have different gifts and talents from God. (different average IQs for example)

How long will I have to put up with this ignorant bullshit that anytime the percentage in a category does not match the percentage in the general population then that is BAD? (well, except for the NBA or NFL where high paid blacks are vastly over-represented)

Yeah, sure. How many of those are actually white writers, as opposed to (((white))) writers?

Breaking out those stats would really indicate over/under-representation among certain groups.

They don't make many westerns anymore.
Last night we watched Alan Ladd im 'Saskatchewan'- 1953 - saw more Injuns than we could count. Of course, most of the speaking parts were given to 'Itralians'

You sir, are part of the problem, because evidently, YOU are one of the idiots who makes profitable these lame remakes of brilliant originals.

Seriously, with all of the Castalia House offerings, why should Vox pay the movie rights for someone other publishing house's story?

Not a bad idea. Not at all.

If he would do that, the Burn Unit wouldn't need donations... and all of his other projects would be perpetually funded.

Other than in Atlantic City (where the local politicos got greedy and killed the entire flock of Golden Geese), who has ever heard of a casino posting an annual loss?

Do it and push it in their faces constantly. Even though*we* know it is bullshit and theatre, their "narrative" forces them to accept it as a fact and to perform some sort of action in response.

I wouldn't focus as much attention and energy on movies as much as building up Voxiversity as a solid resource. If VD's videos continue and form a structured set of subjects, there is potential in them being bought up for wide distribution.

I do believe society is crying out for a clear and structured presentation of ideas due to the current state of media (bombardment with competing and contradictory views).

Blogger DraveckysHumerus April 16, 2018 9:45 PM  

Vox, once you commit to movie production, please email me. I financially support a documentary movie funding group and our films have consistently won at Sundance et al. including this year. While cat ladies exert overinfluence, I've bent towards the right, mostly quietly, since youth. If you can assemble a very compelling documentary, with personal interviews which are de rigueur, I may be in position to help fund and market your work product even despite the "hater" or as I prefer dissident status that will initially be accorded. No joke, I believe I can assist in the background.

Blogger Jevaughn Brown April 16, 2018 10:21 PM  

Wait - "if we do start making movies in another year or three"? Possibly maybe that soon we could see "Castalia Studios" movies?!

Don't tease me like that Vox, it's not fair. Lol.

I've been wondering how much longer will it be before the cost to do top-tier CGI on live-action movies gets low enough to let independent filmmakers make movies indistinguishable from big-budget blockbusters.

Surely it can't be long now? Is Hollywood inefficiency bloating the true cost or not? With all that money, the finished graphics are often hit-or-miss across such movies anyway.

The movie to make would be a move about making a Blazing Saddles remake and all the PC freakouts that would happen.

That's the hilarious part. If the made a movie about Vox being the first Indian to run a studio, they'd probably hire an Italian to play him. Maybe Vox could audition for the part himself - "why yes, I am from Italy..."

Yes! Excellent point. And of course Vox and Jon Del Arroz already have novels of detail and dialogue actually written or in their heads waiting to flesh out a script.

Over here imagining a thriving Alt-Hero Cinematic Universe 10 years from now...

Besides that of course there's all the sure things from the Castalia House catalog or from friendly authors.

Blow minds with John C. Wright adaptations.

I'd love movies of Kai Wai Cheah's Post-World-War-Three-War-On-Terror-With-Demons Covenant Chronicles series.

Monster Hunters International?

Nick Cole and Jason Anspach's Galaxy's Edge?

With the over representation of blacks in commercials and TV, you'd think they were at least 70% of the US population.

Blogger Rule of Wrist April 17, 2018 2:53 PM  

I don't think Vox would count because he's a Native-American-Italian-Lombardian now, since immigrating to Italy.
