> "I want to see that movie made whether I make it or not"

I think this is an important idea, there and elsewhere, for a few reasons.

Besides it being a gut-feel check on the real benefit of a project (separate from money/career potential), and how that might motivate others... being able to want to see something done, even if one's own money/career doesn't benefit, seems a good sign, in an industry culture that sometimes seems mercenary.
