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.
After a few years of wanting to do it, & then having access to a place in Queens this year & then having a sublet in Brooklyn for a couple of months this fall, I've finally rented a permanent place in Brooklyn (even though I am writing this from MD at the moment - here for the holidays & also will be here quite often since I've got several important things going on here & MD is less than 4 hours away on Vamoose) - so thus begins my NYC period as an artist/filmmaker.
NYC is very photogenic (also kind of crumbly in places, but the energy is generally sexy), looking forward to making movies there. I am going to try to finish shooting a new feature in NYC before the end of Spring '09.
