Marco Santiago's curator insight, August 14, 2014 3:07 AM

Great article!!! I have to say that, as a filmmaker, I consider myself an artist, but all filmmakers should be very critical of their work with respect to its commercial potential as well. I have a problem with filmmakers that are so narrowly focused in the creative integrity of the art, that they lose focus off the fact that the whole idea of making a serious movie, especially with other people's money, is that the movie ultimately benefits from having an audience. Without an audience, I don't care how visionary the story is, or how well it's executed technically, then it is not worth telling. If your movie is preaching to the quire, then you're really not doing anything to extend your vision to anyone beyond yourself and the people that don't need any convincing about the theme of your story. Story telling is about offering an audience a unique point of view - surprise them, challenge them, but most of all entertain them. With that said, here are the types of filmmakers and producers that tend not to make it in the industry and in my opinion they exhibit the following characteristics:

Arm’s length (creative protectionist) attitude toward distributors, often blaming distributors for their film’s lack of distribution in the market.love-hate relationship with distribution companiesoperating styles often promotes strained production financing, which then comes partially or wholly from private sourcesResults in their pictures under-earning for lack of market preparationCauses some of their theatrical feature films to receive marginal theatrical distribution if none at all.

 

Some of these filmmakers and producers exhibit technical and creative excellence, and may produced a movie or two that achieve great critical success and maybe even an academy award or two, but over the long term, their high risk operating style forces them out of the market more often than not. I’m mainly talking about the producer or production company (not the director). There is a difference.

 

First time producer in this category will typically assume a “festival” or “Sundance path” to success. Of note, consider that over 2000 feature films are submitted for consideration each year to Sundance. Of those only about 200 are accepted, and of these maybe a hand full get a theatrical distribution deal.

 

It is interesting to consider the “creative protectionists” producer’s point of view where their film is concerned. They may defend their approach by asserting that distributors involvement in the development cycle of a motion picture dilute or threaten the creative integrity of their picture. This is perhaps true in most unfortunate circumstances. And from a purely artistic perspective this may be true in general. The question should then be asked, are producers motivated only by the opportunity to express their vision of the story – or would they also like to share their vision with audiences and earn a profit so that they can continue to express their vision and have a chance at making a statement on a consistent basis?
