there is no such thing as "enough money" for corporations, no matter the size.
they waited this long to give Widow a movie and still found a way to give their lead actress the short side of the stick (after giving her the ending that we saw).
they didn't need to do this. they could have renegotiated. but they chose not to, to save themselves... what? a couple million USD?
ridiculous. I hope she wins. and I hope more talent goes this way. despite all the privilege she and nolan have, it's still pretty badass to go at the largest media conglomerates in the world like this.
Hey NoFilmSchool, I, as much a reader as rnfr, would like you to please keep talking about politics.
and here I thought the new realities of the business would put a pause in all the reworkings around old IP, and maybe bring in a new wave of low-budget creativity. well, I guess you take what you can get.
Great article. I hope the doc makes its way to Brazil.
(also I'm so glad I caught this piece before the comment section turned into a cesspool)
While the idea of a social media directed towards filmmakers sounds good (although I didn't see a mention to community forum boards in the description), I think the whole thing with the filmmakers being almost indebted to deliver backstage material isn't attractive. I like Patreon because you can establish your own rewards. Not everyone has the time or manpower to deliver regular backstage videos or organize production notes to be published while still focusing on the main product. And online patronage should be about making sure the final product gets delivered. It could be about people collaborating with colleagues and people they admire, and this allows for people to feel like they're the bosses of the creators and like they're owed more than the final product. Don't think it's ideal for people who can barely work around finishing a short.
