How Much Info Should be in a Job Post?

I have RSS feeds for the Mandy & Craigslist job posts for editors. (http://newyork.craigslist.org/search/tfr?query=editor&format=rss is a good start) They’re almost universally garbage, but I have gotten two good gigs out of Craigslist over the past 5 years, although the last one was 2 years ago. Of course there’s the usual crop of producers who are […]

A Big Day for Possible Films

Hot on the heels of last week’s 4/20 release of Cheech & Chong’s Hey Watch This, 4/27 brings two new releases from Hal Hartley. Both films are available on DVD from Microcinema and as MP4 downloads on the Possible Films website. First up is PF2: Possible Films vol. 2, the first new material from Hal since Fay Grim […]

Canon 5D 24p!

Cheech & Chong’s Hey Watch This is coming out on 4/20!

I’ve heard a rumor that it might come out in a few theaters as well. There’s no trailer yet, but you can pre-order the Blu-Ray for hardly any money on Amazon. I can […]

Barriers to Entry

The cost of making movies that look good has been plummeting steadily over the past few years. Way back in the beginning of the century, there was basically just DV, which everyone pretended looked good because there were no viable alternatives. Now we have a plethora of amazing HD options. I am a complete believer […]
