It is exactly this schizophrenia that is killing the indie film business...it went legit. Now it wears a suit and goes to the office and gets a paycheck with benefits...

"Indie film" via the studios wears a collar that gets jerked along by the corporate chain.

Indie film is always about the story - not the stars.

(I include everything from arthouse to grindhouse in that statement)
