Jack Rothman discusses his book, “Hollywood in Wide Angle.” He begins by explaining that his book takes a look at Hollywood directors throughout all eras of filmmaking. He says that the most important job of a filmmaker is to be able to tell the story of the main character. He talks about how many movie directors today are only concerned with the money they’re making and not about the art. Rothman describes the tension that can happen between scriptwriters and directors. He ends the interview by talking about film festivals and the new popularity of independent filmmaking.
