That's a lot of wasted time for me. I'd rather do so many more things during that driving time. I could read all my commute time.
Audiobooks, my friend. All my time in the car is spent listening to audiobooks or podcasts. It's a great, safe way to recover otherwise wasted time sitting in traffic.
you don't 'lose money' if you take a while to make a movie.
This isn't even remotely close to true. Movies can live or die by current trends. It's hard enough to predict what people are going to want in a year, let alone X amount of time it takes to render effects on an old PC.
soon, we won't even need real actors or real scenes.
This is a nightmarish fantasy. I want to connect emotionally with the people in the movie. Even in some explosion-filled Michael Bay movie, I'd rather root for a flesh-and-blood generic action guy than some sort of simulation.
While it can make for interesting experiments, one thing we shouldn't automate is artistic endeavors.
