Filmmaker's note

The film isn't just about the film industry. It's for viewers who work in any field who've ever tried to create something and had to watch their idea evolve and shift after inception.

The characters feel a responsibility to tell the Joan of Arc story truthfully. So when they begin getting feedback and notes their own values are at stake as the project is tweaked. On my mind is the question: how do you know when any creation, be it a film, a dish at a restaurant, or a house, is a work of art or a commercial product?
