Timing is close to everything. Good movies go unseen. Talent is squandered. Revolutions fail to materialize. All of this because of bad timing (and perhaps bad strategies). At the same time, great things occur, movements are born, we delight in the artistry of new talents -- all because people were in the right place at the right time. Is this a cause for celebration or something to lament?
I will not discount the good fortune I had to start making movies when I did. It is also so difficult to judge where we are now as a culture, an industry, or a movement -- or what the wisest strategy is for these times. I know we are not going to find the answer on our own. I trust we can build it better together. I was very moved by producer Joseph White's tale of trial and tribulation and I we are lucky he's chosen to share it with us.
