The thing about this Cinema Culture us filmmakers live in is that it keeps us in a constant state of becoming. Especially minorities because if it's bad within the mainstream these days, imagine how it is for us! But, these are good times for all because the internet wrecked havoc on the Hollywood Machine. What that means for us is that while the system is in a cocoon forming into a butterfly, we have an opportunity to be part of the architecture of some new wings. Maybe we can control the black spots on both wings if we're lucky.
With that being said, there's alot of talk going round of people trying to figure this thing out across the board. So, it's extremely important that we position ourselves within these convos. Gain the knowledge of the past, define our present and lay ground for our future in the art and commerce of Cinema. Chuuurch!
Some good points from the homey Ted Hope. Enjoy!
