Tonight's the second class in this indie filmmaking course I'm taking at my alma mater - I loved my first experience last week and I'm looking forward to tonight's follow-up: sets, props, costumes, and locations.

It's both refreshing and alien to actually be around film people locally (though one really excellent indie film was made around here a few years ago).

I do get the vibe that I'm probably the only one there really into "art" films - the instructor asked for everyone's favorite director and desperate to think of someone I liked that the class might've heard of, I said David Lynch, and he seemed sort of confused - the other students said Nolan and Tarantino. Most people there seem to be after commercial success, and I'm just there to have a chance at getting things made - though I do want to be sustainable, and that means making some money somehow. Still, it's a very supportive atmosphere and I'm very glad to be there, and I hope it leads to some good experiences.

It's a really nice follow-up to reading "Community Media: A Handbook for DIY TV" by @ajroach42 (https://communitymedia.network/product-category/zine/)! That zine said some things I really, really needed to hear - including some things I had already thought myself but hadn't embraced until I saw them in print. (Thanks, Andrew!) I highly recommend it to anyone doing any kind of indie art, not just TV, but it's definitely recommended reading for anyone making .

I also just got "Make Your Own Damn Movie!" by Lloyd Kaufman from the library, that's next on the reading list.

Indie Filmmakers, do you know what the specs are for posting video on different social media platforms?

Because if people aren't sharing your teasers and trailers, it might be because you haven't made it possible.

*Note I am not asking for specs, I"m asking if you have the information you need to succeed.
