Several '06 filmmaker/bloggers (Schnack, self, Hansen, Swanberg, etc.) having successes right about now - mid '07
UPDATE: Let's not forget Mike Tully - his Silver Jew (follow up to last year's Cocaine Angel) is making the fest rounds & is being received well - plus Tully is planning a new feature, and Susan Buice & Arin Crumley's Four Eyed Monsters (their first feature) - the much talked about DIY/self-distro film that recently did an innovative collaboration using YouTube & the Spout site. All three of those filmmakers were active this time last year with their blogs & movies.
- and I am waiting to see filmmaker/blogger* David Lowery bust out with a feature this year. He wrote about DIY film distribution early last year; he writes well & has made some excellent shorts (on top of being a co-director on the collaborative feature Dead Room).
* filmmaker/blogger = flogger? :)
- and let's not forget Blake Calhoun of Killing Down fame.
