Bonus Trivia

.

Golin, on the successful approach Propaganda Films has taken in the entertainment business: "The only game plan we had when we started was to establish a business that was a positive cash flow business, that would give us the ability to be more flexible, to finance our own development on our own terms. The revenue from the video and commercial business is enough to let us survive and to give us a certain credibility with directors who don't want to take a project to a studio....We also like the music video business for other reasons, and that has to do with research and development. It's a great training ground for new talent. Music video takes only three days and costs maybe $150,000, so how big a disaster can it really be, even if you put somebody really inexperienced in there? We use video as a training ground, and if the people are good, then we move them into larger projects." ("New York Times", October 15, 1990)
