Check it out. It’s 7 minutes and blows away the other films–except for perhaps one other, which I won’t name. You can watch them all through the link.



Looking for videos 3 minutes or less.




Sundance Institute has started a new project that will use independent filmmaking to shed light on poverty and hunger around the world. The competition, which will receive support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, invites submissions of short documentary or narrative films (of 3-8 minutes) that depict innovations being made by individuals to combat poverty.  The chosen films will receive a $10,000 grant and an invitation to a private screening of the films at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Submissions are free and due before July 1, 2014. The Sundance Institute is working with to manage the online call for entries.



I guess I have to inform all my competition about this apparently free competition to get a $20K budget to shoot a short film (with feature potential).  You’ll want to read the webpage.

Hi people. There’s a new CONTEST to pick an indie film APP that will be useful to a lot of people, and they will build it, for real.

My concept is #2, the “Indie Central Trailer Wheel” to make it easier — and more fun — for people to browse for new indie films. If you agree — then vote for it! Right now! It’s live!

Thanks for considering.
