2010 1/2

Fellow humans,

Wow, the weeks and months have been passing by quick. First half of 2010: Check! But stuff is going down. World economy melt down 2.0, Gulf of Mexico is filled up to the brim with oil and some people are holding tea parties. I mean come on, this is really not the time for this. But thank god we’re learning from our mistakes and everything will be better in the future. Right? Yeah, right. Back to 1 everybody.

Some thoughts on the new DIY of Independent Film

I’ve been thinking a lot about the state of the independent film industry lately. As a filmmaker how can I not. It feels like there is a reboot going on; a reset. Obviously, technologically leaps have been made over just the last five years alone and virtually everybody can produce a video, a film or other kind of content (I think you can actually shoot AND EDIT on an iPhone now). This lead to an oversaturated and overcrowded market. The consequences are obvious and the global economic crisis only worsened the situation.
