Is Indie Film Producer Still a Job?

We launched our TITAN screenwriting awards recently and conducted an interview with one of our three judges, Sicario producer Ed McDonnell.

He said something interesting at one point on the migration of the mid-budget movie to TV...

"My best movies are that mid-level studio picture and they’re not making those anymore. So those stories tend to go to television now."

But further on from that he said something perhaps more stark and revealing...

"I mean, if you’re trying to make a $40 million movie right now, good luck! More and more indie producers are going to Netflix."

It provokes an interesting question - is indie film producer still a job? Or are the streamers/TV the only way in?
