Rabbit Holes

Once upon a time I saw a movie called The Last Broadcast
This was when I was helping to start Film Wisconsin the replacement to the soon to be disbanded State of Wisconsin Film Office.
We know of how my work in getting Film Wisconsin going lead me and William Zenobia to first try Film Forward a Zine designed to help folks make movies in Wisconsin and then the It Came From Lake Michigan Film Fest held in Racine WI the first year then Milwaukee Wisconsin the 2nd and last year.
Not wanting to lose my interacting to the Indy Film World I started Indy Film Wisconsin Podcast from there I first started interviewing Indy film folks first in Horror film then films of all types. I dealt with issues from Self distribution to the use of social media.
I was able to interview my hero Lance Weler
and that interview quickly lead me to Andrea Phillips

She is who talked mo me about Rabbit Holes as per ARG games of course a bit of Cross Media stuff and the like I just interviewed Jerry Paffendoff about Loveland cut to the chase my minds been twisted to do more on the big rabbit hole call the net. Please follow me I am scared but eager to begin

Ass or Cash baby.

I am no longer going to be nice and help horses drink the water ( Indy Media Types uses the new now to sell product for free) its going to be as my dear father would say Ass Cash or Gas.
Today I realized there are far too many who want an excuse of why they cant get there film out or the book sold and need to think that's its the gate keepers or the man that is stopping them, when in fact they just do not want to. Yes its scary you might fail someone may not like you after you sell your project.
Well I got too much to get done in what is left of my life to worry about it anymore.
I will contune to point out via the blog/podcast what tool are out there. Bring on guests who have done it. However I am so done in giving the advice what my help I get paid. Prove to me I am not wasting my time and you want to sell your project more then I do.

I am Slug

Your right I am a slug. That must change if I am to meet my goals for 2010.
First question I have is for each project a blog love to put them all in one place. I guess however should do each with its own blog.
More discipline is needed to insure I get the job done. More bloging less facebook!

Rip offs

Can I get a $1.00 for every rip off in the film world;d please. I just love the one I heard today, if you join there group you will make more money then God.
Too bad the nuts that pitched there page do not know (but good for us) that facts can be checked. And if they did do all they said they did why do they want your $20.00 a month? Did not film XXXX theyclaim they did make them 100000000000000

Whats more critical to you on Facebook/Twitter The number of followers or the quilty of interaction you have with them?
If its the number why?
To me rather have contacts who I can information with then simple numbers that offer little if anything for me

Media vs Indy Film Makers

Next show will talk about if media is simply a paid hack for Hollywood films vs doing anything to promote real indy film makers? Indy Horror films are really hit hard by that.
Point being if I am a Indy Film maker how do I get my film in the news? Why is it IMHO only films that take ads out get the Press I need?
How do they get by with that.
