Beginning of the end . . . or visa versa?

VOD is rapidly getting more attention, if for no other reason that films don’t seem to be catching distributor attention, or rather distributors.  The news from Toronto was dreary, both inside and outside screening rooms.

I heard an old friend/colleague say this recently, which could mean it’s now a mantra, but producers and filmmakers who complain about “too many movies” seem to me more like desperate reality TV participants than sober business people, essentially opting for a “women & children first” policy for the film business.  Why not let go of the sinking old model, and let in what could be a warm sea and rising tide of new opportunities?
