I thought you all would find this interesting. It’s an article from this morning’s LA Times, a sit-down with four successful, hard-working Hollywood producers (Michael London, Gary Lucchesi, Marshall Herskovitz and Gale Ann Hurd). They talk about the business, what makes it tick, and the current situation in which we find ourselves. It is verrrrrrry interesting!
Some highlights: 1) Companies fear taking risks; 2) Everything really is about marketing; 3) …It’s really difficult now for creative people to get a movie made. But read on – it’s fascinating to hear their point of view, and the article answers some of the questions that we below-the-line artists ask of each other, our agents, and the Universe at large.
