I completely disagree with you! Indie film is what it is, outside of the studio system, and it is what the filmmaker makes out of it. Studios in the other hand, don't want to bet, they know what movies make money and which ones don't and the reason why they make sequels is plain and simple: repeat business (just the same reason why Apple releases a new model every year). They also do bundle productions so they are pumping original content in the regular basis, so take it easy on the studios amigo!

The example comparing Relativity's movies with Pixar's clearly shows that there's a huge gap in marketing cost which directly relates to the success of the movie, although, there are many distinct cases, in the first chart it is very clear how marketing spending directly affects the outcome.
I can be almost sure that Relativity was able to project their earnings spot on but didn't know how to balance their marketing costs versus production budget.

the article doesn't say anything about organization, I'm very organized and systematic in a lot of aspectecs of my life plus anything else that was on the list. I consider myself very creative but I can tell you that it isn't untill you master the tools of the medium in which you are working on that you can let your imagination run wild.
