  1. Good stuff. The thing that gets lost in a lot of the conversations about whether games are “going Hollywood” is how much flux Hollywood is in.

  2. Good point. Also, there are many different Hollywood models to choose from, like TV vs. film, sitcoms vs. drama, etc. Rarely are two Hollywood projects done the same way.
