Comment on: Hey Elitists, come back this film!?
Screendaily is not known for negative opinions outside of its film reviews so its interesting why this rubs you up the wrong way. The elitest media angle is the one we have been arguing a lot about recently.... Let's see how this pans out
Comment on: 12 Years A Slave: Freedom fighters
Thank god for this film to deal with the subject matter.. Otherwise all we would have is Tarantino's revisionist piece of crap.
Comment on: The problem with the 7% stat
Very interesting argument!
Who cares? Really? the recent Diversity initiative has petered out due to the fact that nobody in top management turned up apart from one or two who were most probably press ganged into going. I am bored of people stating the obvious with no clear action plan (please DO correct me if i am wrong). I have a great idea! How about we all gang together and start a digital online initiative? As individuals we are constantly trying to get into the industry but what for? to be accepted? Who is up for starting a "new" digital network? Each of us have individual talents that are literally going to waste. You can contact me very easily. NOW there is a very clear action plan

Comment on: Can TV save the indie film business?
this cash flow workflow has gone back as far as when Palace Pictures did television shows like Robin of Sherwood in the 80's... shame there is nobody else as brave and visionary as Nik Powell and Stephen Woolley to make edgy cinema.... oops, went off piste
Every six months broadcastnow and screendaily have an article on the lack of diversity in media and everytime I reply saying the same thing.. Nothing has changed, in fact it has gotten worse.. I myself can't wait for the system to be balanced out so I have started my own company and doing it all myself... Maybe a visionary will do something about it but feel in six months people will be surprised by the lack of diversity in another survey...
finally it will see the light of day so the audience can judge it on its own merits
