Clint Eastwood once told me that I would have to be prepared to work for free if I wanted to work doing what I love. I have to admit, that in this instance at least, I happen to agree with him. It is one of the reasons I show the films we make films for free. At least for as long as I can afford to do so.
However, I would be deluding myself, and lying to you, if I said that it was sustainable to carry on in this way. The fact is, it isn’t. The fact is we can only afford to make more films if I make money from the pieces we make, or if people make donations. If you really can’t afford money, and I understand a lot can’t, then you can always donate your good will and spread the word. I know how valuable this is in itself.
All is received with gratitude.
