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.

From my point of view, that's why Coppola is an artist, he's focused on art not money.
While some others directors, let's say Cameron, are more focused on business. Avatar is a great show, but I don't call it art.
