Ted Hope’s 1% for Filmmakers

Recently everyone seems to be going on about ‘the 1%’. From The blockupy movement, to the climate change movement to…the filmmaking movement?

Not sure what kind of OCD moment Ted Hope’s guest columnist Scott McMahon (from Film Trooper) was experiencing the day he wrote this article, but, it is a bit of fun with numbers. Well…depressing fun with numbers, really.

Scott has this wacky theory that everything can be boiled down to this number. It’s interesting reading, if only for the numbers he quotes.

But – a word to Scott (and Ted) 16 / 1666 is indeed almost 1%, but in the article it is quoted as .01%.

Hey, we’re filmmakers, not mathematicians!
