Steve McQueen Shares His Thoughts On Hollywood Directors Not Hiring Black Actors
i'm looking forward to his next movie 12 Years A Slave http://blogs.indiewire.com/shadowand...with_brad_pitt
Excuses will be made, ignorance will be feigned, first hand accounts will be dismissed...business as usual. At the most we might get one of those Hollywood patting itself on the back moments where they spotlight one actor or actress before toss them in the "not wanted" dumpster.
I can't be the only one who read 'Steve McQueen' and thought it was this guy:
How unbelievably cool would that be if he came back from the grave to speak about a grave injustice?
[smiley goes here]
Anyways, I will listen to the interview when I get home.

I was expecting old footage of Steve McQueen too LOL
Eliminate the studio altogether and go straight to Netflix or the likes. Stuff like Besuro (great flick-go see it) or Attack The Block(Ditto) can bypass the cultural guardian and go straight to the mass market.
The thing will be for the creators to figure out how to get PAID from streaming.

Building up a following on Vimeo or YouTube is an excellent way to make that path a little easier, but then you have to decide what your bottom line is in terms of what HAS to be on screen. Heck the youtube revenue program may be a better way to go for those attempting to get the ball rolling...
