Topic: David Cameron: Make more commercial films
I've noticed there's a fair few more Brits on the board of late so I figured I'd bring this up.
A couple of weeks ago David Cameron, a man who likes to go on TV and do Prime Minister impressions went to Pinewood Studios and told the British film industry to invest more in commercial films and less on artistic stuff.
That's right the man who failed to win the last election is telling us what's popular.
Essentially it boils down to "The Kings Speech did good, make more" because a stammering monarch was box office fodder from the get go which is why the script was rejected by the BBC and several other places before being picked up.
frankly I think they would be better off making distribution for British films easier, they'd make more money if most had more then a week in art house cinemas with no advertising. Something like quotas that television has to work with that X amount of programming mustn't be imports would do more good then making 'safe' film in the hope that it is commercial. Like every other film a the multiplex.
