‘Penny wise, pound foolish’ is the mantra many of our producers live by. Take the case of this production house that hit the jackpot with one of their releases this year. The film turned out to be a surprise hit, delivering a fabulous return on investment since it was a modestly budgeted film.
In such cases, the team behind the hit, i.e., the producer and director, are usually quick to announce their next project together, and while there has been some speculation to that effect, word is that in reality, the director is not keen on working with the producers again. The reason? His dues for working on the hit are still to be cleared!
Which is why, in our line of work especially, it is always advisable to not ruffle any feathers because you never know when the tables might turn and your need is more than theirs!
