A moment in film making

Neutral Hills Stills / Words considers an exceptional fan film, state subsidies for art and the concerns of Sarah Polley (RTWT).

... whenever Sarah Polley (or any other tit-suck CanCon “artist” [spit]) whines that she (they) can’t make a movie without extensive government funding, she (they) can also be told to STFU and The Hunt for Gollum thrown in their faces.

Polley is NOT an artist. Artists create art. They find a way around obstacles. They go into debt. They take a third mortgage on their home. They find volunteers who share their vision. And they create.

Whores, on the other hand, won’t hop into bed until they negotiate a price first.

I am instinctively shy of fan art because of too much exposure to seriously bad Trek convention skits as a younger lad.

But that said, Sean makes some excellent points and that post should be emailed to every Canadian artist, especially perennial ACTRA mouthpieces Colin Mochrie and Debra McGrath.
