DIY05 is a little film movement that Amir Motlagh & I cooked up around this time last year. Here's the basic approach of DIY05 towards indie film production & distribution:

CHARACTERISTICS/MISSION:

1. No budget/ultra-low budget digital video & or film D.I.Y. production

2. Touring like punk rockers/indie rockers, self distribution

3. Providing much value to each of our worthy audience members

DIY05 principles are being put into practice right now w/ Date Number One.

Indeed LC, indeed. And the ride is just picking up its public segment w/ the release of DNO, at least for me.

Amir's been out traveling w/ his shorts at various festivals for months.

And other DIY & touring filmmakers such as Kelley Baker & Liz Nord have been very busy last & this year.
