This blog catalogues my attempts to move beyond the “struggling” point to earn a healthy living from indie filmmaking and multiplatform content. I’ll be mixing proven business techniques with innovative ideas and case studies that show how we can commercially exploit our talent for profit. Money isn’t the goal, but it is the means that we need to live, so let’s get better at creating it alongside our indie films (and other creative stuff).

Mistakes and Failures #1:
there is always something that can be learned from them. I get a lot of requests for information about mistakes or failed projects from my past. They are a plenty! The reason for that is simple: when I have an idea I believe in , I go for it. If I believe in something I do whatever I can to take swift action. It’s important when we have an idea we’re excited about to get the ball rolling quickly, because getting started is the most difficult part of any project.

I’m writing especially for people who found the whole thing disturbing, who are uncertain about what they think, who are surprised and scared by what they’ve heard that police did, and put off by scenes of burning cars and broken windows.
