Just as I said -- it's the means. And for the studio, and sure, the producer too, it's both the means and the end. But it shouldn't be so for the writers or director.

Let me clarify and reinforce this -- I'm not saying, nor have i ever said, that you can't be in it for the money. But if the money is all you're in it for, pack it up and go home.
