The article presents an interview with Dan Lindau who oversees the Crossroads Group of companies, which in addition to a commercial production unit, includes 89 Editorial, Headlight Design + Visual Effects, Crossroads Television and Crossroads Feature Films. When asked about the quality of work he has seen, he says there was good work and bad work. He says comedy and comedy dialogue seems to be back in a big way. He further says there's a heavy emphasis on that, less giant productions like 1984, less things that rely solely on size of the production.
