"one of the hottest up-and-coming DIY filmmakers" - Cinematical

:) :) :) Gee, thanks Kim Voynar! She opens her Cinematical article on the DV Guru interview with me with the following sentence: " Our sister site DV Guru has an excellent interview up with one of the hottest up-and-coming DIY filmmakers out there, Sujewa Ekanayake, whose latest film, Date Number One, has been doing quite well." Regardless of the relative truthiness of the hot factor statement (isn't there only like 8 DIY filmmakers self-distributing features right now in the US? :), it is always nice to have some positive press coverage from Cinematical. Here is the rest of the opening paragraph:

" Ekanayake shot the film entirely on digital video using an XL1S camera and also a VX2000. The entire project cost him about $10K and took about 2.5 years from start-to-finish; Ekanayake financed the film himself from his paychecks and investments from a few friends and family. He's also distributing the film himself -- the film has so far shown in Seattle, NYC and Washington DC (where Ekanayake is based)."

Read the rest of the excellent article here. At its end Voynar wants to hear from filmmakers about the future of indie film distribution.

Thanks again for the coverage Kim Voynar/Cinematical!

8 diy filmmakers in the US?

Do Arin and Susan at count as two of those? Or just one?

It's tough to say if your hotter than them or not.

THE hottest DIY distributor right now of course is Lance Weiler. He got Head Trauma out in a big way.
