While it's not great art, let's remember one thing: They didn't make the movie for us, and most of the audience will not care if it was shot on Canon XH-A1's or Whoopty-Doopty HyperWiper 3700B/v1.5's (with the latest firmware update) or whatever.

This is the business forum, right? Imagine that! People made a film for a specific audience! It will likely be briefly successful, certainly make back its negative cost, and then that audience will move on. And a very, very small number of them will pick up a camera and say "I want to do that!"

I worked on a low-budget actioner a while back, we shot it in a week, in SD, for deliberate direct-to-DVD release. Know what? It'll make money. Not a lot, but it'll get into the black. And the highest mountain on earth is the half-finished projects out there. We made a movie. And somewhere, there's an audience for it. They'll find it, and probably enjoy it. With luck, they'll want us to make another one.

It's not about us, guys, it's about them.
