Multimedia, AV Francis Ford Coppola is one of the most prestigious and critically acclaimed directors in cinematographic history. He directed, among others, the Godfather trilogy and Apocalypse Now, and has won so many awards it's hard to keep track. In an interview with 99%, he touched on the subject of art and making money, and his musings are fascinating, and yet another indication that the times are changing in the content industry. "Who says artists have to make money?" Coppola wonders.

Yeah, and who said artists have to eat?


I think artists can make a lot of money from concerts and other live shows; of course they have to eat.

What I do not understand is why people like Michael Jackson (to give a famous name) have to get zillions and zillions of moneys; same for actors. Why do they have to earn a shitload much more than a teacher, a surgeon, a researcher or a soldier?
