Formerly: DIY Filmmaker Sujewa Blog - Werewolf Ninja Philosopher and other 2018 movies! DIY = Do-It-Yourself. DIY film = low budget indie films made and distributed by the filmmaker. This is a blog by filmmaker Sujewa Ekanayake. 2018 films - Werewolf Ninja Philosopher, Breakthrough Weekend, Brooklyn Fantastic, Agnes the Alien. Blog active since 2006. Since 4/28/18 blog is called NEW ART FILM (since 2018), see post below for more re: the new direction.
on the other hand, not being based in NYC & making indie films elsewhere has its benefits
my previous post was about possibly moving to NYC in mid-'07. but i wonder if it is better to keep living in the DC area & keep making movies here, since so few people do something close to what i do (ultra-low budget, DIY features, comedies, self-distribution) in this area. either way, the key is to make good movies & then distribute them, where i live is not that important in comparison. also, due to the internet, i may not need to live in NYC to grow my career, i think i just need to keep making good movies & getting them out.
who knows, but on to more important & immediate things, like the 8/31 NYC Premiere of Date Number One THIS WEEK!!! posts re: the film, a very important review, & a reminder or two about the screening coming this week.
