I wanted to let everyone know that Zacuto has a new webisodic series out called FilmFellas that’s all about issues that relate to indie filmmakers. I think it’s pretty clever and the production rocks. Steve Weiss, the director, has some really interesting guests like Philip Bloom, Joe Swanberg and Susan Buice. This show is a Zacuto production but has nothing to do with Zacuto or any of products, it’s just filmmakers talking about what they have done and issues that are important to them.
One big theme I see in FilmFellas is how do I make money as an indie filmmaker, on the big screen, TV or the web? I was talking to Steve, who was a Director (mostly fashion and corporate work) for 20 years prior to starting Zacuto, and he’s told me how he’s been itching to get back into production, his first love, and this is his first endeavor. Steve and I are friends and we’ve been talking for the past year about how he believes the web is really where indie filmmakers should focus on creating an audience and ways to turn that audience into money.
