Brit Films vs American Films
I have been working with the New Producers Alliance – the UK’s largest network of producers, directors and script writers, in next year’s seminars and events. Our film industry seems to live these days a clear ramp to bigger box office revenues. Still, it is very hard to find funding for over £20m production budgets unless you are Tim Bevan at Working Title. Things that in Hollywood, with their überproduced films, are totally a given, like original music score recorded from a live orchestra, over here is like pulling teeth out of a producer’s budget. Even when this year, original score was the only Oscar that we got, the brilliant Dario Marianelli for ATONEMENT, Joe Wright’s beautiful and technically challenging film.
I found this Eddie Izzard Lego animation still carries a huge amount of truth, specially with this Cannes Film Festival madness that we had with the Tropic Thunder release later on this summer.
Happy weekend everyone.
