Gosh, what a long time it has been since I last posted on here. Sorry for the extra-long silence over the holidays. Anyway I am back and, like many others, I have been thinking a great deal about the challenges facing independent filmmaking in 2009.
I mentioned on my Shooting From The Hip blog that independent filmmakers are well trained in dealing with financial uncertainty and I hope that we can continue to work together to forge a creative path in 2009. Make sure that you add Shooters you have worked with to your profile on shootingpeople.org – this will make it much easier for you to find cast and crew for your films who have worked with people you already know and trust.
And here’s a new blog to add to your list if you want some solid information on how films actually get made. All About Indie Filmmaking is written by Jane Kosek, an indie film producer in LA, and is full of useful tips to help you find your feet in the industry.
Happy New Year!
