INDIE FILM IS STILL DYING

Another piece on the demise of our favorite art form, this time titled “The Death of Indie Film as a Business Model” and found at Mike Curtis’s HD for Indies blog. It’s all there — the Gill speech, overcrowded theaters, uninspiring films, the high cost of marketing, piracy, the high cost of film school, the Darwinian acquisitions environment. Curtis’s piece is already generating a nice comments thread with the first poster, sean90291, offering some reasons why he’d rather pay $5 to see Ballast at home than see it at a theater where the screen is “the size of my plasma display at home, the sound system had a blown speaker, and a giant piece of fuzz vibrated over the picture for the film’s duration.”
