DIY Filmmaking in 2017 - In the Golden Age

It's a golden age for DIY filmmaking & distribution.  I define DIY filmmaking & distribution as one central artist - the director/producer/writer or the main filmmaker, or a group of artists - making films and making them available to interested audiences - specially feature length films - with or without help from Hollywood, large companies, the traditional film industry (relevant specially when done outside of the industry - or not letting lack of film industry help stop one's desire for making movies.)  It's as tough as ever to make a lot of money from independent filmmaking work, but, it is possible now to make and distribute your work relatively easily - compared to the first decade of the 2000s, the 1990s, the 1980s etc.

Now a filmmaker can shoot a film on his or her phone or other easily available high quality image making devices such as DSLRs, camcorders, and then release the movie on Vimeo or YouTube or eventually Amazon, iTunes, perhaps even Netflix, start building a fan base, move on to more ambitious work, play film festivals, grow a mailing list, do crowdfunding, make even more ambitious work, repeat the pattern of releasing & building an audience, and look for new collaboration opportunities when it comes to funding & distribution.

So, get busy making & distributing movies friends; those who are into the activity.

I am finishing up two features at the moment.  And a third one is at script stage - to be filmed later this year.

Will be back soon w/ info on my next release - later this month.

Meantime, two excellent DIY filmmakers - Amir Motlagh and Jon Moritsugu are working on new movies.  More links to their new projects coming soon.
