Even though it was by most accounts a failure, Quibi still represents some striking implications about the way film may be produced and viewed in the years to come.
While audiences were clearly not ready for the drastic shifts Quibi offered, I believe they might be one day in the future. Social media and television have become focused on creating an overexposure to content that is particularly short in length, not requiring a serious time commitment to engage with. I must assume that film will follow suit to some capacity, although I admit, I am not so sure what that might look like. Short increments inspired by Quibi? Perhaps hour-long segments presented as short miniseries, such as the extended cut of The Hateful Eight (dir. Quentin Tarantino, 2015) that was released on Netflix as a four-part series?
Is this the future of filmmaking?
