The producers of 12 Years a Slave believed in the film so strongly they, “made [it] part of our mandate,” producer Brad Pitt said of the film in The Hollywood Reporter’s Piaget Lounge at Saturday’s Independent Spirit Awards, where Slave won five awards, including best feature.

“The actors, directors that we believe in and we think are pushing the medium and more difficult material that might need that little extra push, that’s been priority number one for us, and this was quite evident from early on that [it]…was special to me, very special,” Pitt said of making the film. “I loved this film and we were going to get it done. It wasn’t without its hurdles.”

Pitt also talked about what he learned from working with director Steve McQueen, saying that in addition to realizing you can make a great film in roughly a month on a shoestring budget, as they did with Slave, he was inspired by the director’s approach to filming.

“I really took note in Steve’s confidence to hold onto a moment and letting that moment sink in to you to the point of, ‘Am I making you uncomfortable?'” the producer said. “You might come around to the other end and see the beauty of it, but that’s very unique and it’s certainly not the norm in today’s filmmaking.”

Actor Brad Pitt says he will not let his children watch “12 Years A Slave”, which he has co-produced.

The 50-year-old, who has six children – Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and Knox and Vivienne, five, however, may let his eldest son Maddox watch it.

Set in the 1900s “12 Years a Slave” is the story of Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, who is abducted and sold into slavery.

“Maybe my eldest I would, right now. I`d rather (wait) for the others to get a little bit older and understand the dynamics of the world a little more,” Pitt said in a statement.

Talking about the depiction of issues like slavery and racial discrimination in the movie, he said: “It`s one of those few films that cuts to the base of our humanity, it`s why I got into film in the first place.”

“Brad said ‘whatever it takes,’” she recalled. “He had not done a cameo in 25 years.”

In response to a question about test screenings, Gardner said that ”12 Years a Slave” delivered strong results at a trio of showings, adding, “it was an indication that people were ready for this film.

From an interview with Sumner Redstone, leader of CBS and Viacom/Paramount.

Brad Pitt’s Plan B company, which made World War Z for Paramount, is leaving for New Regency. Does that concern you?

Well, people have a right to go where they want. But I think Paramount is the best studio in the world. And Brad [Grey] is the best studio leader in the world, in my opinion. I hired him!

Is it true David Geffen encouraged you to hire Grey and then encouraged you to un-hire him?

I had no discussions that I recall with David Geffen. I don’t need anyone’s advice, like David’s, about hiring Brad [Grey]. Brad is great. He was great with [management company Brillstein-Grey]. But he [might make] less money running the studio. He wanted to be a studio head.

So, when there’s studio politics, like the fact that Plan B didn’t make 12 Years a Slave for Paramount and the film is now a leading Oscar contender, do you care?

Of course I care. I care about everything that affects the studio or any part of Viacom/CBS. Anyone is entitled to go where they want. A lot of people favor Paramount. Those who do are the ones who are right.
