FAQ

Why is Hollywood so famous?

The first film industry was founded in California in 1887 by D.W. Griffith. It was named for Los Angeles, which was at the time called "Hollywood."

Because it was an exciting area to visit, the name stuck. People would travel all the way from other countries to see what was happening.

Hollywood is still an integral part of American culture. We have movies, television shows, music videos, commercials, etc. These are all known as Hollywood.


What is the difference between a producer and a distributor?

The movie is made by a producer. The distributor distributes the movie. Distributors, theaters and other companies, such as Netflix, can be sold directly by producers. Distributors buy movies directly from producers. They then sell them to theaters and cable channels or streaming services.

Distributors have to negotiate with theater owners over where their movies should play. This could mean that certain theaters may charge more for a particular movie than others. If you want your movie to be seen by as many people as possible, you should choose a distributor with many theaters.


What is the difference between an Indie Film and a Foreign Language Film?

A film made independently is typically done by one filmmaker, who makes all the decisions.

On the other side, a foreign-language film is normally produced by an even larger production team.

They often hire writers and actors from other nations.

You can also find professional translators to make the dialogue sound natural.


What is the annual salary of Hollywood?

Producing a movie can cost around $100 million. The average movie costs around $100 million to make. If you made ten movies per month for a ten year, you'd have enough cash to buy a small country.

You would own your own island, with an airport, a power plant, a bank, a post office, a police force, a fire department, a school system, a hospital, a zoo, a sports stadium, a theater, and a cinema.

If this doesn't sound fun, you are insane.


Does Hollywood make more money from foreign sales than domestic sales?

Yes, but only slightly. Foreign revenues made up about 17% of total revenue in 2017. 83% of total revenue came from domestic sources.

Over half of the world’s population is found in overseas markets.

This means that even those who have never seen a movie at their home, many will still be interested in your movie.


Why are so few independent films ever distributed?

Many indie filmmakers believe that distributors will take their films.

Because they love the work, distributors will likely buy their films.

But this is rare. Distributors often use independent filmmakers.

They use tactics such as delaying a film's release date until after awards season has ended.

They may delay the release of a low budget film until after summer blockbuster season begins.

Distributors are also trying to keep films off the streets until audiences have already spent hundreds upon thousands of dollars on tickets or popcorn.

They don't want any of those profits to go to waste.

How To

How to get your star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

The Hollywood Walk of Fame (HWOF) was established in 1960 by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. The HWOF can be found at 6233 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, California. It has 2,711 stars embedded in the Hollywood Boulevard sidewalk. Each star represents someone who made motion pictures, television or radio, as well as music and other aspects of popular culture. There are 1,922 individuals currently listed on HWOF.

To become a HWOF member, you need to submit a name to Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. They then submit your details to the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. Once you are approved, you will receive a certificate of eligibility that includes your name, date, residence, occupation, category, and other information. You will also receive a bronze plaque engraved with your name. This plaque is attached directly to the concrete base, in front of designated stars.

If a member of the HWOF has nominated you, or if your contributions are significant to films, television, radio or theatre, or any other part of popular culture, you can apply for a Star. A committee evaluates the nominations and decides whether to approve them. If they decide to approve, they write a letter to the address of the applicant explaining their decision. The second letter is sent to the applicant confirming acceptance of the nomination if the person accepts it. The Hollywood Chamber of commerce will then pay $25. This money is forwarded to the Department of Cultural Affairs of Los Angeles.

The department issues a check payable to the Hollywood Chamber of commerce, which sends the check to the Hollywood Walk of Fame Foundation. The foundation pays the application submitted by the artist or organization. The artist or organization then pays the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce half the fee ($12.50). The other half goes to the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.

Once an artist has received their star, he/she is eligible to be listed in the HWOF. To be eligible to list on the HWOF you will need to pay the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce all outstanding balance. The amount due depends upon how many years ago your first nomination was. For example, $15,000. Suppose you were first nominated as a nominee in 1990. You'd owe $10,000 if you were previously nominated in 1990.

If you want to remove yourself from the HWOF, you need to contact the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and pay off the remainder of your debt. They will remove your name permanently from the HWOF list.

How old is one to be eligible for a HWOF Star?

To be nominated, one must be at least 18 years. To receive a Star, one must still be living at the time. One can still be nominated after receiving a star after ten years.

What happens if I die before my star gets put up?

Family members may nominate you to be a star. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce can place a memorial marker next to the star, if there aren't any living relatives.

Why not just have stars on every street?

The HWOF isn't meant to be an historical monument. It is intended to honor all those who have made film history possible.

What happened to the stolen stars? The thieves took approximately 1,200 stars. Each star is between 250-300 lbs. If you add all of the weight together, it comes to approximately 4 tons of stars!
