  • Excerpt: Producer Sees New Opportunities for Independent Films in 'Hope for Film'

    I started using the phrase "a complete systems reboot" to describe what was needed for the film industry. Unless this happened, we were fated to stay mired in an outdated and unsustainable model. In the 1990s, two key tactics of independent producers were to make movies for underserved audiences and to differentiate ourselves in the marketplace. Independent film used to be a business of singles, not home runs -- where a producer aimed for a million-dollar box office gross on a $200,000 spend. This approach allowed directors to experiment and take real risks in both form and content. And it worked because there were more newspaper film critics, arthouse theaters and foreign sales. But then "Pulp Fiction" exploded on the scene, and independent filmmaking became the business of profit margins rather than the underserved audience. You now had to make movies for everyone (be it "Little Miss Sunshine," "Juno" or "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon"). And those movies cost a lot to market. Then along comes the Internet, giving us the opportunity to truly target audiences, and here we are full circle. Now you can make movies for those niche audiences again.
