📸 Phone Cameras Zoom Past Amateurs

Never underestimate the power of a pocket-sized device – smartphones have completely taken over the amateur niche. With over 50% of the global population owning one, they’ve turned everyone into a professional paparazzo.

iPhones are now the most popular cameras, and TikTok thrives on smartphone-shot content. Apps like GarageBand and online courses are transforming smartphones into creative classrooms.

But it’s not all selfie-sticks and rainbows; screen time and privacy are pressing concerns.

As smartphones continue to click into our lives, amateurs are developing more than just photos – they’re developing passions, sharing stories, and creating the new wave of mobile media. Smile and say, “Pixel!”

Are smartphones the new breeding ground for amateur creatives?

 PRODUCTION MASTERY

European broadcasters are spending more on original content than ever before, despite facing increased competition from global streamers, according to a report from the European Audiovisual Observatory.

The study found that broadcasters' spending on original shows and movies has grown faster than their overall revenues in recent years, with sports rights also seeing a significant boost. Meanwhile, global streamers like Netflix and Amazon now account for a quarter of all European content spending, but haven't replaced broadcasters as the top investors in original programming.

Instead, broadcasters have upped their game, investing more than ever before – at least until the pandemic hit.

For now, it looks like Europe's TV titans are ready to play ball with the new kids on the block.

Are European broadcasters losing the content game?
