I was afraid of business

So I spent the day researching the film markets and box office numbers for different films over the past fifteen years. Before many of you stop reading I must say I found the whole thing fascinating. In the past I have found myself resisting the business side of the film business. I’ve always wanted someone else to be responsible for that side of the business. If I’m honest my resistance came from an unhealthy fear… fear that I wouldn’t understand it and a fear that such knowledge would kill my creativity. Fear stops you growing and learning. Fear is a dirty rotten liar you shouldn’t listen too.
