In the production of films, usually need to budget how much turnover?
CP: In Indonesia there are three qualifying films. There is a very simple film, a film made with 1.5 M 1.5 M less any maximum or else, it can be circulated. Lots of movies like that. Well, if we say of the cinema it received 7500 per ticket, he can already returned 200,000 spectators (capital). He must also of other results. There is a standard film, the actual film. It is a film that is made for the cost range is already above 2 M to 5 M. Servia play in the region. I rarely make movies at a cost below 3 M and could be more than 5 M. But beyond that, there are also ideal films, such as xmovies8 tv Get Married. Every year we always make films that are standard and ideal. If the film is ideal, can sometimes be 500,000 (spectators) was, has not returned the money. Like the time I made Women Berkalung Sorban with high costs. 800,000 may also, still not profitable, yet breakeven. Actually considerations make ideal film is not merely we do not want. We made the film wants all ideal. But we have a limited market. The main obstacle is the national film market. A limited number of theaters, a limited number of screens. Cinema does not exist in all regions. That’s very sad. We just want to scream increase production, promote production, but the infrastructure is not there. That is the obstacle. Finally from the first, we circled the vicious circle. Want to increased production costs, the market is limited. Later the market can not accommodate. Our loss. Finally, playing in the budget in accordance with market conditions. Why for example can make the Transformers 1.5 trillion? Because it has the world market. If we make the films can be made 300 standard. For three years, right? (laugh)
CP: There actually, but there’s nothing definite. Film the social product. Products that can not be determined with certainty. So, a bit difficult, yes. If everything can be ascertained, has been on so producer. Rich-rich in all. He said something that must have been in the film industry is uncertainty.
FI: Can you tell us about the filming of Indonesia that rely on digital technology?
CP: Well. I was concerned. I really love this industry, but on the other hand I am also concerned. These industries such as sugar, invite ants to come. Or kayak flowers, inviting beetles. Why? Because promising, he said. Well, so the producer, cool. Many rich parents give their children money to be able to make a movie. Finally, be a movie. Making movies is as easy as turning the hand, as long as there duitnya. The problem is that the film made the film like? Does the film can build up the industry, which gives a good viewing experience to make the investment that people want to watch more. Or vice versa? Or eventually even results can not be returned. Make it easy, but building an industry is to transmit positive values. Build. In addition to providing jobs, pass on all the costs incurred in production to help all economic activity in the community, but also should increase the economic value of the business activity, not vice versa. Or if not, the business was bankrupt. Bankruptcies are transmitted everywhere bankruptcy means an activity.
