Hollywood is all about commercialism. High-risk, innovative works from directors with distinctive points of view can't purchase a green light from big-time distributors. Kevin Smith knows the life of an independent filmmaker, and so his latest project, "Red State," could be avoiding [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] the Hollywood grind entirely. The fictional thriller "Red State" is based upon the exploits of controversial Pastor Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church. In order to stay away from Hollywood hemming and hawing over how to market such a movie, Smith paid [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] himself $20 in a mock auction for the movie's distribution legal rights. At that price he didn't even have to take out a payday cash advance.
Need [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] to see 'Red State'?
Rather than place "Red State" within the hands of a marketing machine that [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] would cower in fear of protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church, [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] Kevin Smith has packed up his movie and, beginning Mar. 5, plans to travel across the U.S. throughout 2011, screening it for "any intelligent exhibitor" willing to open its doors and house an audience. Rather than having pre-releases of the movie, Smith is hoping he can instead just do the on road exhibition of "Red State" in order to make back just a little bit of the film's $4 million budget before the October 19 theatrical release, accounts the Associated Press.
"What we need to prove is that anyone can release a movie," Smith told the debut audience at the Eccles Theater in Logan, Utah. "Indie film isn't dead, it just grew up. We sell our movies ourselves."
Beating the Hollywood machine
Apparently Kevin Smith thinks of himself as a [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] "fat...stoner" who wants [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] his stories told. The business of Hollywood never held allure for the "Red State" director, hence the desire to eliminate the commercial machine that would seek to control his [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] movie. As Smith told the Eccles audience, excessive commercialism may drive dollars, [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] but it also pounds creativity into bloodless waste.
The way for 'Red State' to get protested
The portrayal of Pastor Abin Cooper [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] in a fundamentalist church within the "Red State" film is one that Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church are offended by. When writing Cooper's character, Smith does explain that Phelps was his "muse" so to speak although Cooper's church was more extreme than the Westboro [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] Baptist Church in that it would kill homosexuals instead of protesting.
