Introduction

YOUR BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK AT FILMS NOT COMING SOON TO A THEATER NEAR YOU...This blog is dedicated to promoting the art of independent filmmaking. The films profiled here are conceived and created outside the studio system and are brought to you, the public, without the aid of a major distributor. Though they might experience a limited theatrical release, they will largely be available to wider audiences through outlets like Netflix, YouTube or by direct purchase.

Help a filmmaker!

Hi again!


Many thanks to filmmaker Leslie Langee for a great show yesterday!  Unfortunately, for those of you who might have missed it, our equipment failed us and we were unable to record the show to convert to podcast.  


Wanted to let you all know of a project my friend Mike Dion, Executive Producer of the film RIDE THE DIVIDE that ReelTime presented at the Avalon last year, is working on.





The film is WHERE THE YELLOWSTONE GOES, a documentary which follows a crew of people as they make their way down the longest undammed river in the contiguous United States.


They are currrently trying to raise funds to ensure a large release...meaning, the more money they have the more likely the film could show in areas like Western Colorado.


They are using a fundraising platform called Kickstarter - where people pledge money and get some unique perks in return.  This is not an investment opportunity, per se - the creators maintain complete control over their project.  Just a chance to contribute to help them reach their goal.


They are only 4 days away from their deadline and roughly $3000 shy of their goal.  If they don't reach that goal by the 15th, no money will change hands.

These types of grassroots efforts ensure that independent films make it out to the public.  Thanks for taking a look!
