The Maryland New Wave

Todd Rohal's '06 feature The Guatamalan Handshake + Michael Tully's '06 feature Cocaine Angel + Sujewa Ekanayake's '06 feature Date Number One = The Maryland New Wave

'cause when was the last time such 3, at the very least very interesting, high quality indie features came out of Maryland at the same time/in the same year? I do not recall. I do not think it's ever happened. All 3 films are being received well by some very important peeps in the indie film scene: audiences & or bloggers/reviewers & or film fest programmers.

If we are the MD New Wave (on the fiction features front), who is the old(er) wave? I guess John Waters & Barry Levinson. Two rocking local or local rooted filmmaking gentlemen. Love that Diner & the entire highly entertaining career of John Waters.

Dig it cinema studies people & bloggers (& film fest programmers & art/indie venue programmers, distributors, reviewers, cool audience members), dig it, get in on this sexy action pronto while me, Mike & Todd are still relatively unknown & relatively poor (i think, not sure about that one re: all 3 of us) 'cause I am sure we'll get busy very soon doing interviews for French film magazines & flying to Europe & Asia for special events :) :) :)

"The history of Delaware as a political entity dates back to the early colonization of North American by European settlers. It is made up of three counties established since 1680, before the time ofWilliam Penn. Each had its own settlement history. Their early inhabitants tended to identify more closely with the county than the colony or state. Large parts of southern and western Delaware were thought to have been in Maryland until 1767. All of the state has existed in the wide economic and political circle of Philadelphia." Read the rest at Wikipedia.

EPIC period of d.i.y. feature filmmaking productivity ahead...

i've got a lot of blogs & blog posts, but not enough feature films completed & released, so...

inspired by some lessons i've learned from blogging since 2004, got a new plan to get more d.i.y. indie features done & out!

starting w/ Breakthrough Weekend ASAP (fine cut should be done in april) i'll be able to get a whole lot of new features done & out, already shot movies completed & released, & older movies released (or re-made, & released w/ the original movies as bonus material).

let's see how this plan gets carried out.  should be awesome!

The Land of Spirits - a documentary about Shor culture - now in production...

From the film's website:

Influenced by Werner Herzog’s films I have become engrossed into the topic of endangered cultures. According to UNESCO, every day dies a last representative of a small nation on Earth and with it a language disappears. In my visual story I want to capture the way of living and daily routine of a scarce people living in the south of the Kemerovskaya region, Russia. This place is known to the local Shor people as Gornaya Shoriya (translated as: Mountainous Shoria). Currently the population is estimated to be 12,888 but it is hard to find even a few hundred people whom can either speak this language (mixed from Mongolian and Turkish) or live in this traditional society. However, deep in taiga, in the upper reaches of the river Mras-Su, there are some villages still preserved in the old ways; where people speak their own language and live in the culture of their ancestors. That's where our crew plans to go. In the remote village are no roads, no electricity and only one street with no name. Only five families live there and to get there is a narrow path clenched between the mountain cliff and the river. Elderly locals every time overcome eight kilometers of unsafe taiga to get to the nearest store. 

Go here for more.
