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.

It's not a matter of money or popularity, but technics != arts.
Avatar is a cool movie, but it's just a show made for audience.
If Kubrick or Godard had a made a story with blue aliens, even not in 3D, I'd change my opinion.

Van Gogh is a good example, of course he probably would love to earn money or be famous. But even if he was considered a mad red head drawer and sell paint for food, he can't help stop painting.
