Despite my ongoing pride in the work done by everyone at indieWIRE, I try not to overhype iW here or anywhere else. That said, we were all quite amazed to learn today that the recent First Person article by Mark Gill (a transcript of his LA Film Festival speech) has been read nearly 100,000 times on the iW site in just four days. That’s an astounding response. As iW contributor Eric Kohn IM’d to me today, regarding Gill’s speech, “He might as well have delivered it to a stadium.”
This afternoon at indieWIRE, we take a look at some of the responses that have emerged online since we published Gill’s remarks.
