Hollywood operates by it's own standards and to some extent they dictate what independents do and it's all about money. A lot of the money guys are
afraid to invest in anything/style that doesn't have a track record. They are basically aesthetically constipated conservatives. That's all going
to change and is changing drastically.
Film making has become a desktop operation with the advent of some very sophisticated technology. And the www. also needs to be taken seriously as per
collaboration and marketing. Film is on it's way out. Digital is the new kid on the block. Much much cheaper.
I'm pretty green in the industry but I just got SAG eligible as an actor with the big boys and I work with small independent production companies as
producer, asst. Director, scrip, PA, car wrangler, location and transpo, stills, everything except editing.
Avant garde in film seldom hits the big screen. Film festivals are going to grow and be very, very popular. I currently see a much needed
Renaissance in moving pictures. I'm stoked and happy to be involved with such a great bunch of hard working, creative people. A little late in life
but this is my second career.
I'm at the studio now, praying for inspiration.
