I know that everyone starts somewhere and I know that everyone has a right to their dreams, but can we please stop the ridiculous, unprofessional nonsense that makes so many of us look like idiots?
There are people who look at filmmaking as an activity; a pass time. The same way perhaps that some people bowl on Thursdays or play beer league baseball. That's awesome.
But there are others who bill themselves as professionals and act like idiots. They make crap over and…

But the last few years have taught me something about what the reality of trying to break into LA is like. Your great ideas and scripts are very…Continue
Filmmakers! Do you want to have more success raising funds... to create better content.... to be more fulfilled? Perhaps the secret to achievement lies in one small word, "WHY."

I think they might be right! It was so weird and so fun couldn't help but…Continue

As creatives we spend a lot of time asking the question “how?” How did that writer surprise me like that? How did that director balance those performances? How did that producer raise that money? How did the cops see that paper bag under my seat? We all want to know the secret handshakes and passwords. (BTW, “Oh, that’s for my Mom’s glaucoma is NOT a secret password that usually works).
Questions like that are important. After all, to get better at what we love, we need…Continue

Looking for something to do this Saturday? Why not watch a terrific movie and support an independent filmmaker while you’re at it?
I just finished watching PATANG at Boulder’s Dairy Center for the Arts. There are two more showings on Saturday, March 2.
PATANG (The Kite) submerges the viewer in a sea of saturated colors and striking textures. On a typical micro-indie budget, the DP used inexpensive HD cameras and practical/or natural lighting. You wouldn’t know it, though.…Continue
