Wait, so if Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hbo go, box ticket sales, movie rentals etc. had a sudden spike in indie movies Hollywood execs wouldn't take notice?
The 'throw our hands up because no one can change' attitude is so played to me. There use to be a lot of original screenplays, because consumers were vocal about what they wanted. People didn't just accept anything as 'the way it is.'
That attitude is so crazy to me, as if Hollywood is just randomly putting out unoriginal crap. It's because the people that don't care watch it and the people that do care cry about how 'nothing will change.' A little self defeating IMO.
