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.

Money is a point system. Given a limited number of points, how do people distribute them according to what they value? Since people VOLUNTARILY give money to actors and singers and sports figures and bitch and complain about the salaries of teachers and soldiers and other useful people, it shows exactly what they (and the society values).
