    O.K. so here we go again. Here's another trailer for an upcoming straight-to-DVD release (Sept 20) of a stage play. Though it's a short trailer, there's no need to go into the plot. The trailer pretty much explains itself.

    Guest Post: Joke and Biagio "How to Build an Emotional Connection with Your Audience"

    Posts about how to use crowdfunding effectively have become a bit of mainstay in the indie film blogosphere. But that doesn't make them any less crucial.
