Here’s a quote from a 1954 interview with UPA background painter/experimental filmmaker Jules Engel. Though the Hollywood context has changed, Engel’s message remains as relevant today as it was fifty years ago:

“Since the advent of 3-D and CinemaScope, there has been a great deal of talk by film executives about how they are going to ‘save the industry.’ It’s my opinion if there’s any saving to be done of a business based on creative talent–it will be done by creative talent–not by the men behind the big, oak desks.”
