    jokerdas: We all love to rip on Hollywood, but putting out a movie is such a complex, risky endeavor. Honestly, every movie that gets made is a minor miracle, even the bad ones. Hollywood has a fairly specific formula of what they will make, and you have to know the right people, and you have to have the right product at the right time, and etc., etc.

    You know… you were commenting on my email, you mention at 35:00 writing something trite over writing original and having to go through that every day where you can write a hundred books but would hate everyone.
    The thought that came right into my mind was “Chuckles Mulrooney, Attorney For the Damned”. Main character, Victor, chose quantity over quality and became an overnight success. Of course he sold his soul to the devil to do it, but I think you said that is what dealing with Hollywood is akin to anyway!
