Ann Macbeth QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
All the arts are predominantly national, and therefore the Australian Film Commission should be funding us. The battle gets more and more vicious each year.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
Any new producer starting up is to get investors' confidence. Investors are still very very wary of anything to do with the arts world.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
Build into each budget the cost of hiring and don't lump yourself with capital investment.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
Film is the most expensive, highest risk industry in the world.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
For the first time in one place in the west, there were important people from all the other states, all aspects of the film world.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
I am very much in favour of video because the quality of production of video is now so good. It is a different experience to sitting in a cinema.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
I see any production of any nature being good for the development of the whole industry.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
I think the long-term effect of video on cinema is good in that what we are now getting up there on the screen is of superior quality. Videos are just so much more sensitive to the world.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
In 1975 Australia was producing things like Picnic at Hanging Rock, in other words films that I would consider still some of the finest products to come out of Australia. I think that our quality now is less than it was then.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
It will never be Hollywood, the same way people think it should be. I think it will grow and it will be healthy and it will expand into more than one production house.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
John Picton-Warlow's attitude towards film is that it is a business for profit primarily, and he has no qualms in telling you that that is why he is in the business.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
Mainstream industry quite often has a detrimental effect on the small independent film-as-art film-making people because it makes it more difficult for them to get money.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
Most independent filmmakers in Britain and North America work for commercial crews and then have their own projects when they've got enough money saved up to do so.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
Most of the industry over east would still consider Barron Films a freak occurrence, not a significant statement on the viability of a drama production company in Western Australia.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
Ten years ago I was not heavily involved in the film world but on reflection it was a boom time with the mineral boom happening, so there was immense growth for industrial training films, documentaries to do with the mining, and the outback world.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
The British needlewoman follows blindly where the merchant leads.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
The dichotomy between art and industry is totally dysfunctional in terms of film.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
The existing documentary makers still believe that it is impossible to produce drama material in this State, otherwise they would be doing it, they say.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
The more commercial work that is happening, the more people are operating cameras and are setting up studio lights, the greater the opportunity for drama production to happen.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
The State Film Authority will be there for film as industry only, as is the case in all the other states, except Victoria. Victoria is moving more now into supporting non-commercial films.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
The tensions are always based on financial resources. Something like film is very problematic because it is viewed as an art form and also as an industry with a pure commercial base.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
The worst thing that you can do in terms of bringing a product up to the market is to be two days after someone else has brought a similar product to the international market-It's dead.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
There are Aboriginal groups up north and in the west, northwest of WA, that do not have television, they do not have cinemas, but they do have videos.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
They will open up to what I would call corporate broadcastings where the non-commercial material will have air time. There's no possibility of that here right now, none.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
Video just accesses international information so much more readily.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
We are getting more and more not only the trained but also internationally well-experienced people coming here. So it's all adding up.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
We are here predominantly to support independent filmmakers and their needs. We are also here to assist people actually in their production, non-commercial people in their production.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
We are not yet at the point where our size, our being the drama industry, is sufficient to support full time professional crews, and that is very very important.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
We are the only state that does not have a State Film Corporation there to support the commercial industry.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
We discovered that there was a great deal of keen interest in America for the kinds of products that we thought could be produced here. Also there was an interest in Britain for Australian material generally.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
We probably do not have a large enough industry here to ably support the independent filmmaker to move in and out. Much of the industry is based on full-time jobs here, institutionalised jobs.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
We're under the Arts Council under the Minister for the Arts. The Minister for the Arts and the Minister for Industrial Development have great difficulty in agreeing over who should fund what in terms of film.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
What we were promoting in North America was West Australian material, and in England we were talking about Australian material.
Quotation of Ann Macbeth
You have always had individual directors who begin in the advertising or commercial world, but they are probably exceptions rather than the traditional pattern.
