    Who pays for a film makes little difference to me, unless they begin to stick their noses in to the creative process.

    By that I mean that if Eurostar were approached as an obvious investor after the script had been settled upon, then no problem. But if the script were changed once the sponsors were found then it doesn't quite sit right with me.

    I do fear, however, that my idealisism is born of an ignorance of the financial side of filmaking. Probably goes on all the time.
