Independent Film Production -Quo vadis?

When we started thinking about making "The Wounded Brick" we had the choice between the devil and the deep blue sea. 
Director Milos Forman put it in this words:
 

In Europe, producing a film is  being in a zoo – you are kept in a cage but you have a roof over your head and someone feeds you every day; in the US it is the jungle – you are free to go where you like but everyone is trying to kill you. 
(see also: Milos Forman, in: Angus Finney, A Dose of Reality. The State of European Cinema, 1994)
