True lovepublished: 2008-08-28
I just returned from a meeting with the Dutch Filmfund concerning a screenplay I’m co-writing with director Yan Ting Yuen.
It’s easy to hate institutions. It’s just as easy to love them.
This is how it works: you hate them when they use technical film-terminology to say, "I hate your idea (or you)" and subsequently deny you financial support.
You love them when they use the same technical film-terminology to say, "I like your idea (or you) " and subsequently grant you financial support.
The latter was the case this morning.
