Before the pandemic the major film studios were extremely active. The major film studios are located in Southern California. Warner Bros is in Burbank, California. Universal Studios, in universal city, California, Columbia Pictures in Culver City California, and paramount pictures in Hollywood California. Likewise, you will also find the likes of 20th century Fox, Walt Disney pictures, Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios, and united artists all in the United states and in sunny California.
Hollywood is the Mecca of filmmaking. Thousands of would-be actors, screenwriters, and directors have always flocked to Los Angeles, California to fulfill their dreams of becoming a star because, after all, that’s where moviemaking happens. Everyone knows this and for close to a century, it was true. But today, Hollywood—the way we generally think of it—is fading away and going elsewhere.
For most of the 20th century, it was good to be Hollywood. There was no shortage of money and talent coming in the door. But over time, things began to change. As film technology made big advancements like broadcast TV in the 1950s and home video in the 1980s, the various roles in the film industry in California also saw surges in unionization.
So, take the barriers and high costs in California, combine it with fewer and fewer people going to the movies anymore because of Mobile devices, OTT streaming over and the result is a shrinking profit margin for production studios. Something was bound to give.
According to a recent UC Berkeley poll, about half of the people still living in California have considered leaving. When asked why, 71 percent cited the high cost of housing and 51 percent said it was because of the high tax burden. Now comes COVID 19 and Everything Shuts down. Entertainment entrepreneurs are fleeing as they seek refuge elsewhere. The exodus of talent (and tax dollars) from California won’t stop and distribution has now changed forever.
Vuuzle Media Corp, Vuuzle Studios, and Vuuzle TV are now a fit for the new generation. Technology has changed the film and TV industry forever. The new Global film and television Giants have started emerging in other places around the world. Dubai is where all the big film companies seem to be going. Legoland is popular in Dubai, as is IMG Worlds of Adventure featuring Marvel heroes and Cartoon Network characters.
Motiongate is a Hollywood-inspired theme park featuring DreamWorks, Columbia, and Lionsgate titles. All opened since 2016. Paramount is in the process of building a Hollywood-themed hotel in Dubai where the staff will be called Paramount Cast Members, and Hollywood movies will play in all the rooms, including the Godfather suite and the Great Gatsby suite.
But what brings Hollywood production to the UAE are the tax breaks lavished on filmmakers to make movies in the Emirates. Star Trek Beyond, Syriana, City of Life, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Geo-Storm and Independence Day: Resurgence were all filmed in and around Dubai, famous for its space-agey skyline. And who can forget Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol in which Tom Cruise climbs Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world – a stunt that took 23 days and required 400 crew members.
Fast and Furious 7 was shot in Abu Dhabi which offers up to 30% in rebates for production. Pierce Brosnan was recently there in 2018 to shoot The Misfits, as were Ryan Reynolds and Michael Bay for Netflix’s 6 Underground. According to Variety, the Middle East as a whole is among the top ten global markets for Hollywood, and the UAE counts about 17 million movie tickets sold annually, with Dubai a hub for local distribution, including Bollywood titles which do well given the large expatriate population living there.

Yes, and with the new pandemic the control of Hollywood even lessons when distribution is lost. Everyone knows in Hollywood the key to success is distribution. Unfortunately, the film industry lost as Theaters around the United States who distribute these films begin to close.
