Whatever the motivations, this spirit can mean struggling, sacrificing, and possibly failing publicly. As a consumer of independent film, I admire such daring and commitment. Even when films sometimes don’t turn out so well, I appreciate the efforts of those who work outside the box. There are many great things about indie cinema that I’ll discuss in upcoming posts, but I wanted to start here.
This post is part of a series in which I talk about independent film in a more detailed, wide-ranging, and personal way than I usually do here. And it’s a chance to hear from you. Feel free to post a comment anytime or let me know if you’d like to write a post.
