Kid who would be king box office
By Erin Griffith SAN FRANCISCO: Mark Frank, who runs a health technology startup called SonderMind, had planned to wait until the end of 2020 to raise more money for his company. But after Uber and Lyft stumbled when going public and WeWork ousted its chief executive and pulled its initial stock offering, Frank changed his mind. With so much disappointment clouding startup land and an economic slowdown looming, he decided that having more cash on hand was the better course. SonderMind, which raised $3 million in April, has 80% of that money left, Frank said. To increase the startup’s “runway,” or the amount of time before it runs out of cash, he decided to spend less than planned, and to be extra safe, he began informal conversations with investors for a new round of fundraising early next year. “The question is now, ‘Do we push that timeline up even further?’” said Frank, 41, who is based in Denver. Tech startups, which have enjoyed years … [Read more...] about For startups, cash is king (again)

The Nine-owned streaming business announced its partnership with Disney last year, providing customers with a library of family friendly movies and TV shows. The Disney titles were a major way for Stan to attract customers, with a Stan source telling AdNews it would drive long-term subscriber growth. But the launch of Disney+ has Stan removing the Disney tile on its homepage along with animated favourites Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Frozen and Cars. However, select Disney, Marvel and Star Wars titles are available on Foxtel and its streaming service Foxtel Now. Writer for television blog TV Tonight, David Knox, said streaming services needed first-run premium international series and Australian originals to drive the subscriptions. He said Star Wars series The Mandalorian was a drawcard for Disney+ and Morning Wars , starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, was drawing attention to new player Apple TV+. Ambitious eight-episode show The Mandalorian will launch with Disney+ … [Read more...] about Disney pulls titles off Stan ahead of rival streaming service’s launch
More Indians are watching films across screens, TV, online and other platforms than ever before. Whether it is by tackling costs, processes or revenues, the trick is to find a way of making money from all of them, says Vanita Kohli-Khandekar.Earlier this month, the Indian arm of the $52.5-billion Walt Disney Company announced it was giving up on the Indian film business. “Given the challenges with the current economic model for investing in the local film industry, we intend to shift the focus of our film strategy to driving our Hollywood movie slate in India,” a Disney India spokesperson said.

And, Eros was certainly in trouble with a class action lawsuit by a bunch of American shareholders; Viacom18 Motion Pictures had already scaled back and so on it went. Are Indian studios shutting down en masse? “There is no question of stopping or shutting down. There is too much hullabaloo and … [Read more...] about What’s plaguing the Indian film industry?
