People in the film industry… can someone please turn the lights on? Seriously, no one can see anything on tv shows anymore. Why is it so dark?

  1. My guess is that it’s got the cinema experience in mind, where everything in the dark can be seen as the viewers are in the dark. But I agree; as a daytime viewer television can be very hard to see

  2. I’m not in the film industry, but I think it’s the rise of the “grimdark” genre; shows like Game of Thrones, Shadow and Bone, etc. Gritty, tragic, tough shows. The color and saturation and such need to match the tone.

  3. I think the darkness in film and TV is often used to create a mood or feeling. It can be dramatic and make the scene feel more intense. However, it can also be frustrating for viewers who can’t see what’s going on. I think it depends on the particular show or movie, and what the director is trying to achieve. In some cases, it might be necessary to have the lights off, but in others, it might be worth turning up the brightness a bit.
