Summer Housekeeping

In: Filmmaking

I’m going to be taking this website down before Memorial Day for an extensive overhaul. It really doesn’t reflect my interests as a filmmaker any more and its design is dreadfully out of fashion. When the site is back up sometime around Labor Day, I’ll be featuring rare footage “from the vault” and some experiments in live streaming from music venues in Erie and Pittsburgh. Troubadour Blues is going to be downsized to a single page, the older blogs will be archived, everything will be streamlined and simplified. Meanwhile, you can visit my digital portfolio to see everything I’ve done in the past 2-3 years.

SORRY, THIS HASN’T BEEN UPDATED IN A LONG TIME (9/4/16)
The links are all still good.

John Eger, who teaches communication and public policy at San Diego State University, has posted a fantastic article about advanced technology and the survival of many cities. He’s one of a number of experts who agrees that the world is turning into a collection of powerful city/states in a global economy where nobody is in charge. Excellent reading.

Veteran indie producer Ted Hope, whose credits include 21 Grams by Oscar-winning director Alejandro González Iñárritu, talks about Five Crucial Things We Want From Movies. Short, sweet, and definitely to the point.

Ted has gone back to producing after stints with the Fandor movie streaming service and the San Francisco Film Society. Here’s his master list of distribution case studies, a useful resource for those of us looking for ways to get our films in front of wider audiences.
