    Guest Post Alex & Andrew Smith: "Crowdfunding = Barnraising: We All Have To Do Some Heavy Lifting"

    It's kind of hard to find the appropriate analogy for what we do, particularly these days. Often I am tempted to think it is running full speed against a brick wall without any protective headgear on, hoping that a door may open the moment before impact. But those are on my down days. Usually I can see us all working together, building bridges, fusing connections, doing the labor that will lift the culture in many ways.

    Guest Post: Beth B "Who Says An Old Punk Can't Learn New Tricks?"

    Guest Post by Jennifer Fox: "Change Or Die: How 22 Years On One Film Lead To Desperate Measures

    I have been producing for about 25 years now. I have routines, methods, and even rituals that help me get done what I have to get done. But if there is one thing that is constant in the film/media biz it is change. If we don't remain eternal students, we don't evolve and grow. Both our art and o...

    Guest Post: Leah Warshawski on "Navigating Rejection With Grace"
