Comment on: Only 7% of UK films make profit
Having just come back, for the fifth year running, from the PrimeExchnage Workshop in India this is one market that has changed out of all recognition in this time. There is now a young generation of Indian film-makers looking to the wprld for their audience, and aiming to make English language films. If we do not radically alter the quality of our work we will have no indigenous film making industry within a generation, and we will be back to the hobbyists of the early '90's scenario.
On the point about "Encourage and aggressively develop new writers." I could not agree more. Sadly I experience little evidence of this in current distributors/sales agents etc and wonder if Michael believes this is ever going to happen and who will take up this obvious point about renewing and growing audiences with new voices?
