  • Comment on: Trumbull: Super HFR could revitalise cinema

    Do you know what would revitalise cinema? A better cinema visiting experience. Reasonable ticket prices. A wider choice of films. Easier access to smaller films.

    And yet still the last English team in the CL with half a chance. Football. Bloody hell.

  • Comment on: Why the UK is missing out on co-production

    michael ogden's comment 12-Mar-2014 10:41 am

    As someone who's tried to co produce (with Italy) it's almost impossible to find partners who are proactive about bringing some finance to the table. They mostly expect to service local tax breaks with you bringing in all the money or are rather incompetent/fishy when it comes to a straight answer. I realise that may sound stereotypical but I set out on my films journey with optimism at making the best film possible. I feel jaded at the lack of support I had from UK funds and co producers I've dealt with. It's a vague mess and as Pauline points out, not being part of Eurimages doesn't help.

    I'm not belittling the issue, just pointing out that if you're going to do it for one group, do it for all. You know, openness, like not posting 'Anonymous'. There's too much of that in the media biz.

    But there's a massive difference in encouraging one minor disadvantaged sector of society to become for instance a boom operator than it is to prioritise applications for funding a piece of work like a film or TV show like some here have suggested.
