Major motion picture studios and mainstream producers have multi-million dollar budgets and a vast distribution system at their disposal. Even with all these benefits, the end result of their efforts are often trite and lack meaningful artistic expression. On the other hand, there exists a growing body of individuals who manage to create masterpieces on a shoe-string budget with little or no financial backing.
I speak, of course, of the independent directors, producers and long suffering actors. Their efforts often result in the production of films that capture the essence of the human experience or provide provocative commentary on the issues of the day. Whether their chosen genre be comedy, drama or documentary, they are unbound by the conventions of prevailing custom. However, these talented individuals don't have access to the mainstream methods of distribution and must rely on word of mouth and a few dedicated bloggers and webmasters to spread their messages. It is our intent to praise and promote these artists. Enjoy the films and videos, and if you like what you see, consider supporting the artists and producers in their endeavors. Let us know how we're doing -- we want to hear from you.
