Feeling alienated by the lack of community in the indie film community?

Then you may want to to sit through Indie Film Blogger Road Trip in its entirety - available for FREE at Blip.TV - to see some old familiar faces (well, at least the faces that connect to the blogs about indie film you may have read a year or two or three ago) & to hear some thoughts about why we do what we do (at least some of us, at one point in time or another).

So, now that Indie Film Blogger Road Trip is available in its entirety on the web, off to work on getting the rest of my stuff - older movies - out on the web, DVD, etc. One partially down (still need to make more IFBRT DVDs), about 2+ to go (maybe I'll make stuff prior to Date Number One (Wild Diner, etc) a part of one DVD (later this year), & make a DNO DVD available + DNO available on the web (ASAP - by early April), & then follow up w/ a Brooklyn Fantastic DVD later this year, or just everything prior to BF on the web ASAP, & also as extra material on the BF DVD when that becomes available - maybe that's the best way to go, will see).

Within 30 days: Date Number One, Indie Film Blogger Road Trip, Brooklyn Fantastic

Well, at looooong last (3 months) re-settling in NYC (getting a nice day job(s) going, having only a dozen immediate problems to deal w/ daily as opposed to five dozen, etc.) is finally done. So, by April 6, should be able to make Date Number One DVDs & more Indie Film Blogger Road Trip DVDs easily available for interested people, also should have Brooklyn Fantastic completed & heading out to screening opportunities & on its way to DVD.

Kaboom trailer

Greg Araki's new movie:

The trailers for Uncle Kent & Septien are pretty good

I really do not plan on going out of my way to watch either Uncle Kent (haven't liked previous Swanberg movies I've seen) or Septien (had some problems with Tully in the past, & also not a fan of his previous movies), but, the trailers for both movies are pretty good (see for yourself below). But, if nothing else, it is cool that these filmmakers are finishing new work & getting them out (a lot more than what I did last year on the film front, but hopefully 2011 will be a different story).

The trailers:

No, I am not the director of Egalite for All

At the moment I (or another person who spells their name exactly the way I do, pretty unlikely) am listed as the director of Haitian revolution doc Egalite for All on Netflix & Amazon. IMDB lists Noland Walker as the director. Unless I have horrible memory or an alternate reality is bleeding into this one, most likely IMDB is correct. Hopefully Netflix & Amazon will update their records soon (pretty difficult to send an e-mail to Netflix about this issue btw).

The Fear Inside's review of the movie Septien

It's an amusing read - check it out. (well, amusing in the sense that it's funny to imagine the author of the review sitting through the movie, & also the maker of the movie is a film critic/film writer who also dabbles in filmmaking from time to time - which i imagine is a tough job - can a professional film critic/reviewer/film writer ever be a good filmmaker? probably, but it would be very difficult i think because to be a critic is to attempt to define a new work in relation to older works & to make judgements about the work not just for oneself but also for a select audience & to be a good filmmaker/artist (of the art film variety at least) is to attempt to pioneer new ways of doing things & primarily select elements that work well for oneself - anyway, all that lightly related stuff aside, i'll have to see Septien for myself & report at some point, if time permits (maybe when i get some time off in like 40 years or something :))
