    Collaboration 101: Working With Your Partner (In Life And On Set) -- Part 2 of 3

    Yesterday, in an effort to determine whether "Can A Couple Truly Collaborate Creatively (And Survive?)" we started to look at the origins of the collaborative filmmaking team of Sophia Takal and Lawrence Michael Levine -- who just so happen to be entangled romantically too. Today, they share a bit about what they went through when they embarked on their first feature, Lawrence's GABI ON THE ROOF IN JULY. They are as honest and forthcoming about their process, as they are in their filmmaking itself. As I said yesterday, "Whether you aspire to work with your significant other, or just collaborate well with your team, the back and forth and g...

    You Can See MARTHA MARCEY MAY MARLENE No Matter Where You Are

    Guest Post: Wanda Bershen "Recognizing Where Indie Film Began"

    It seems that most Indie Film Makers & Lovers think Indie began in the late 80's or early 90's. There is a lot to be gained from the study and appreciation of those that came first though, and looking at the roots might point us to a better future. I was pleased to see one of those films, David Ho...
