The trials and tribulations of the independent filmmaker. Everyone works with constraints in filmmaking. It's part of the process. But it's no fun to cling to your principles if it means you're too poor to feed your children (in this case, your movies). I'm hard pressed to think of another group of artists more beat up for selling out than filmmakers, but often they have no choice if they ever want to pay the bills and finance their own projects, the ones they really want to bring to life.
It's tough to face down Tiger head to head, even if it is in videogame golf (as Bill Simmons found out).
