Fylmz interview about Date Number One & self-distribution

The indie film website Fylmz interviewed me about my movie Date Number One & its self-distribution project. Check out the interview here. Here is a segment of the interview: "Q: Can you explain DIY filmmaking to me? Isn’t every film really a kind of DIY endeavor? * A: DIY is a term borrowed from punk rock. DIY refers to artists making work and distributing the work without the assistance of the mainstream production and distribution industry or other large corporate involvement. For indie film in the US, that means Hollywood or Indiewood. DIYness is only relevant, as far as I see, in cases where the filmmaker does not have a lot of money or is not already a part of Hollywood or Indiewood. If you have $200,000 to make and distribute an indie movie, at this point in time, it does not matter if you claim you are DIY or not, because the amount of money you have will make it easy for you to get the work done. On the other hand, a young filmmaker with no industry connections making and self-distributing a high quality $3,000 movie is a DIY thing and is very exciting. Because of the democratizing potential that story and example contains or the fact that a good film is made and gotten out with a relatively little bit of money and a lot of work could mean many other film artists with good ideas but not a lot of money may be able to get their work made and out." Read the entire interview here. Thanks Fylmz!
