Filmmaking For The Poor: The Easy Path to Becoming A Professional Indie Filmmaker

Filmmaking For The Poor: The Easy Path to Becoming A Professional Indie Filmmaker

This is a really great Manifesto. I especially love these parts:

"forget confusing fame, wealth, power for love & health (forever)"

"[And on a purely creative note:
creativity is a powerful gift & ability, use it wisely
being able to make a movie is a rare ability in the history of this world, use that power well
seek out things that should be celebrated but aren't, celebrate them, your peers will reward you for it
seek out things that should be articulated (because doing so will make life more livable for some or many people), no matter how painful, articulate those things through your art, you will be making the world a better place]"

Yo Mr. James,

Thanks for the appreciation of the manifesto of sorts.

We'll hang when you come to the dvd screening event in DC (I am 79% sure at this point that Deadroom will be a part of it) in May or so (we'll get the final date & film line up worked out by early March).

By the way, if Spiral Diner looks like an old timey diner, I might want to shoot a movie there. I have an old script about a diner that was not shot well the 1st time around, been meaning to remake that movie at somepoint.

Later.
