Ted Hope brings his message of change and innovation in the indie film community to Fandor
Ted Hope has a made a name for himself as one of the most successful independent film producers of the last few decades, responsible for a slew of noteworthy films like The Ice Storm, 21 Grams and Martha Marcy May Marlene, to name just a few (visit his imdb page for his entire filmography – it’s quite impressive). Indie film is in his DNA, so it’s only natural that he’s established himself as a leading advocate for the art of making films and the artists who pour their heart, soul and livelihood into the movies we love and, frankly, need.
Anyone familiar with Ted is also aware that he’s a prolific blogger, regularly offering up news and views on his popular site Hope for Film. On his blog, he preaches the gospel of a healthy and equitable independent film industry, where filmmakers are properly recognized and compensated for their work. It’s just one way he’s helping fight the good fight for filmmakers and artists everywhere.
Earlier today, Ted sounded off on his new gig as Fandor CEO and how it fits into his mission to bring order to the “chaos out there for artists, audiences, distributors, and all their supporters.” Check out his post Mission Check: My Next Step is Announced for Ted’s thoughts on his latest endeavor and why there’s reason to be optimistic for the future of independent film.
