2016 Films, 1 Feature A Year Goal, & how the goals of the DIY Film Revolution are now easily achievable
The developments in crowdfunding over the last several years (Indiegogo, Kickstarter, Seed & Spark, etc), the coming into being of several ultra low budget films that have gained national & international attention (see Quiet City, Lord Byron, All the Light in the Sky, 25 ultra low budget films by Rick Schmidt on Fandor, & many other examples out there) and the emergence of great self-distribution options such as Vimeo VOD makes previously difficult goals of the DIY Filmmaking Revolution (a whole lot of us attempting to master filmmaking & distribution around 2006) now achievable. Plus the existence of a well developed Internet, marketing & finding collaborators through Facebook & other social media sites (see Ultra Ultra Ultra Low Budget Filmmakers group), & the existence of thousands of how-to videos & articles (see No Film School, YouTube filmmaking videos, etc) makes real indie filmmaking a lot easier now.
That being the case, my goal starting this year is to make & release at least 1 feature length film a year. I am starting with Breakthrough Weekend (currently being edited) - should be released in May. Then following up with the completion & release of Brooklyn Fantastic (filmed, needs to be edited). After those two projects I hope to shoot a new film this year (latest working title is Happiness Level Infinity).
More info on the films coming as they get completed and released.
