    Omid Mahdavi continued:
    "The most important point is that we should not wait until the conditions for making a film are provided." Because we do not necessarily need a lot of money to make a film, especially experimental. This means that this is not an excuse not to make films, because today the situation has changed and now it is possible to make films with mobile phones, especially portrait films.

The genre of music video can be seen as a commercialization of many techniques of experimental film. Title design and television advertising have also been influenced by experimental film. Many experimental filmmakers have also made feature films, and vice versa.
