Once upon a time, there were pavement artists. I’m sure there sitll are around London, Paris and New York, but at one point, they seemed to be everywhere.
These remarkably talented people would spend hours creating and recreating fantastic works of art on the pavements of the world for all to see and appreciate. Some people would stop and take photographs of their work. Some would leave money – whatever they could afford at the time.
The pavement artists were happy, the viewing public was happy, and the world was a slightly better place for them being there.
Movie producers should be just like those pavement artists, just one a larger scale. Their would should be open to be seen and appreciated by anyone; their art admired, their skills appreciated, and the movies spread far and wide by any means possible. Anyone who wants to pay can pay, and pay whatever they can afford or think the movie is worth. I’m pretty sure that the better the movie, the more people would pay.
There would be no piracy. There would be no faty-cat movie “industry”. But there would be a lot of excellent movies, made by highly talented pavement artists.
