Today, there are fewer barriers to entry for filmmakers. Though finding an audience remains as big of a challenge as ever, audiences are beginning to get more involved in the creative process. Hollywood is long overdue for fundamental change. If we could redesign the film industry into the best possible system for the artists, the audience and the business, what would it look like?
