Did he really just say "maybe maybe not"? hahaha what an awful person!
But she's as "real" as any of Miyazaki's characters. She's like any other cgi character, she has to be programmed by real people so how fake can she really be? Hopefully she'll be the Hatsune Miku of the film world and give opportunities for people without the means of a "budget" to get to use an established CGI persona for their stories. Cool!
Animation...is a genre...?? That always hurts my soul a little...
Same with Foreign...??? and TV Movie! ugh
I have to agree, but I feel curating content from all over the internet that could/might be interesting to filmmakers is important. I know I appreciate it.
Perhaps NFS could signify which "articles" are curated content and which are original content. Then it would become clear how much, or little, the writers are doing AND would make the curated content less harshly criticized because we would all know that it was not meant to try to be original.
I don't think anyone would fault them for that because, as i said before, I feel curating all this stuff in one place is appreciated. But I feel we can all agree that original, insightful, and well put together content will always be king.
Does anyone who applies to these actually win? I feel like all these organizations are already so rooted in their local, and immediate, film scene that a filmmaker who is already apart of it, or close to the organizers, are already destined to get the grant. These seem like a ploy to get more money from people who like to get their hopes up.
Has anyone every heard of successes from last years list? Were any of those successes not familiar with the organization before hand? I'd be interested to know, especially in narrative grants.
