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.

Thom, you cannot apply 18th century logic to the society of the 21st century!!!!


With all due respect, that kind of thinking has driven societies for eons. Most people don't like being forced to change how they think or what they believe in. Or, to put it another way, "it was good enough then so it should be good enough now".
