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.
new focus for the new year AKA re: title change of blog
so, i did some thinking & note-making last night & it looks like i may be able to not only release both Date Number One & Indie Film Blogger Road Trip this year but also make & release two new features (one tentatively titled Brooklyn Movie, starring Susan Buice & Kami Locklear & others, & at least one more movie - untitled at present). part of this year long project is to gracefully & painlessly transition from absolutely having to work a day job in order to make & distribute movies to working a day job being only an optional thing & the d.i.y. film production & distribution becoming more than self-sufficient financially/turning into a paid job type thing. so we'll see how it goes. as always, it's not about making it in hollywood or indiewood or even festwood (the indie film festival scene), but making & selling & showing my movies to interested customers & other audience members & doing it well - completely on my own terms or terms mutually acceptable & beneficial to me & my business & creative partners. things are coming together well - after many years of work & network building - nyc, md/dc love & support from my d.i.y. filmmaker & other filmmaker & blogger friends are gonna make it possible for me to make & make available to viewers 4 features in '09 & hopefully not lose money doing it. like i said, we'll see how it goes. it looks good at the moment. regardless of what happens it'll be noted on this blog for the next 10 months or so to come.
so this is why the title of the blog changed from diy filmmaker sujewa to 4 x 2009 - so that it will be a daily reminder for me to get the necessary work done to achieve the big goals for '09.
