Just popping on to answer this — Thank you.
I’m actually going to just say that I’ve seen some things on the httyd tag about people unfollowing those who reblog pirated gifs and it really irritated me so I’m just going to get this off my chest and go back into the shadows.
First, I’m not unfollowing people because of spoilers. I saw the movies in theatres 5 times. Thats about 50$ spent on watching it at least.
I’m unfollowing those who gif/reblog probably only until the DVD comes out, because as someone who studied film for her academic career, it hurts to see so many people just not care about the work that went in. You know studios like, need money to make movies right? And if everyone just watched/encouraged people to watch films for free, then guess what! No movies for you.
It’s like this.
I cant believe I have to explain this, but, children will be children. Imagine you’re an artist, and you spend YEARS painting an amazing gorgeous painting, and you’re going to sell it at a gallery to make money to paint more paintings. Everyone loves your paintings. But then, someone takes an HD photo of your painting, blows it up in equal quality and gives it out for free. Everyone now has your painting, and they’re not going to pay you money to see/buy it. Guess what. Now you dont have money and you cannot paint anymore. People are sad, but hey, they got something for free.
So before you call me a bitch, or send me more hate, why don’t you just start appreciating the art and the work that went into these films, and try to wait until the DVD comes out in like a month. Of course, I can’t tell you what to do, so if you download it, please try not spread awareness through gifs/etc.
Thats all I got. Have a fantastic day everyone.
