Different filmmakers do it different ways. My way was to make something for cheap. It’s a good deal for people to give me $3 million for a movie. So they don’t have a lot of requirements. If I was looking for $30 million, then they need more requirements. They need movie stars, and they need backup for their money. The drawback is, when they spend small amounts of money, the studios don’t tend to release the movie very wide since they don’t have that much at stake. Which is O.K. because the films can fend for themselves and be seen by word of mouth.—Gus Van Sant
