I think there are more films being made, but there are probably less outlets for them and distributors.
I find the stuff that is exciting to me are the films coming out of Taiwan and Iran and France. So I have the feeling I’m not making the films that American distributors want to make.
There are some things that are exciting for distributors. I love Apple’s AppStore and the things people can do with digital distribution.
When a movie is about to come out on its initial debut, there are a lot of people involved – the financiers, the studio and the producers and also, many times, the foreign distributors. So it is a time of tremendous pressure and uncertainty.
I got to learn from the American audience. Hearing what it is they’re not getting. These are audiences, 35 to 40, an older demographic that controls seven to 10 trillion dollars. And the producers and distributors have convinced themselves this group doesn’t go to the movies.
A lot of times, I can put a product together with a distributor when I go into my Rolodex for distributors. I can then put it together with a face, such as an artist. And then I can go into my databank of retailers and people that I’ve been working with through the years of retail, and then also manufacturing.
Many of the critics today get airline tickets, hotel accommodation, bags, beautiful photographs, gifts and other expenses paid by the distributors, and then are supposed to write serious articles about the movie.

Pablo Picasso would paint a painting and hang it on the wall, and you would go and see the painting exactly how he wanted it to be made. But if you have an idea for a TV show, for example, you’re beholden to studios to produce it and distributors to distribute it.
If you make a film normally it’s all right, the distributors are helpful and cooperative. But if you make a film that’s a little stange, a little bizarre, then all the time it’s a struggle with them.
A producer is bound to market his product with innovative gimmicks and quirky selling techniques, but distributors and exhibitors should not fall prey to it. Don’t buy a film for exorbitant price and crib about losses post the film’s release.
95% of the album is my writing, by choice, because it seems to be what the distributors want.
Well, the film industry is completely sexist and completely class-biased. It’s not something I get on the ground level, it’s more from financiers and producers and distributors. It’s a way of dealing with you that is essentially patronising: I know better than you.
I want to be a commercially viable actor. I want that the distributors and producers should earn the money; then only, you become a bankable actor.
There’s a lot of pressure to release a game early. In Syndicate’s case there was a lot of pressure from us on distributors Electronics Arts to release it in March ’93, and I said no.

To make a film and to sell it to the distributors you need a name.
I don’t care to analyze acting. On the other hand there is a fascination because distributors are putting out British films. You get films here with great performances you’ll never see again. Why compare. We should go after the businessmen.
A film is between you and the audience. The distributors are the only people in between us. It is a straight equation.
My mom had a produce business in in Oxnard, and we used to take these long trips to talk to farmers and different distributors. She’d take us with her after picking us up from school, and she’d be blasting all this old soul music and R&B. I knew all those O’Jays songs before I knew Snoop or Dre or Tupac.
I think the British industry is set up to support British film, if we make films that enable them to support it. If you don’t make a commercial film, distributors can’t get behind it. If they don’t get behind it, the film doesn’t do well.
There’s guys like me who aren’t going to the theater, so distributors are leaving money on the table.
There used to be lots of legitimate independent distributors: Fox Searchlight, Miramax, Lionsgate, Warner Independent, Focus Features, Paramount Vantage, Picturehouse and Fine Line. Most of them have closed.

One the other hand, the publishing trend is ghastly, isn’t it? Two hundred and something distributors are now down to 10 or 12? And what’s the recruiting drive?
It costs a lot of money to release a movie. What you’d call art-house movies – movies that don’t have big stars or big budgets – they’re very hard for distributors to get behind ’em and take chances.
When ‘Pizza’ released, I was a nobody. Initially, we managed to get only 100 screens. But, after its success, the producers of ‘Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom’ got 150 screens and also released the film in the U.S. Now, distributors are keen to invest in my films because they feel I have face value.
