indieWIRE loves my other blog

Hey Everyone,

Nice to see so much activity on this brand new blog. Welcome Liz & Amir. Amir's got a lot of self-distribution experience w/his shorts. And I'll write a bit more later tonight about the two shorts of his that I screened at Capital City Microcinema last year. Looking forward to what Liz has to say about her doc Jericho's Echo & other projects.

My other blog, Filmmaking For The Poor, has been selected as a "Blogs We Love" blog by the mighty indieWIRE. This I consider a major accomplishment since indieWIRE is probably one of the most visited indie film related websites in America. And like I told indieWIRE's Brian Clark, I "grew up" on iW: much of my thinking about the indie film industry has been heavily affected by stuff covered, opinions offered by iW - even if I haven't always agreed w/their take on things or the kind of projects that they sometimes choose to pay attention to. Looks like indieWIRE is about to go through a major growth period - they have a new community section coming on line later this month. Looking forward to seeing what they've come up w/ & looking forward to seeing Filmmaking For The Poor headlines showing up on iW. It took about 3-4 months and over 50 blog entries to get selected by iW. Looking forward to continuing the blogging over at Filmmaking/Poor & also growing this blog.

Blogging is adictive & immediatley rewarding, but it is only one aspect of being a DIY filmmaker, w/the most important aspect being actually making films :) So, w/ that thought in mind, I am going to go do a few hours of editing. Will blog again late tonight. Talk 2 everyone soon blograwkstars!
