POST: KICKSTARTER THOUGHTS
So our new feature-length documentary, Street Fighting Man, is running a fairly successful Kickstarter campaign at the moment, but we need even more support if we are going to reach our goal by September 3rd. We need to raise about 3000 more dollars to reach our goal. If we don’t hit it. well, we won’t get any of the money. For you skeptics out there, let me say this: running a...
POST: SLCFF RECAP
The 2nd annual Salt Lake City Film Festival ended favorably on Sunday night. The closing night party at Urban Lounge could have been a bit more exciting, but all in all, I would say that this festival is really on to something. Salt Lake City has some great venues (The Tower, Brewvies, The Broadway) and a pretty sizable audience for art house films and documentaries. I have to say I love film...

POST: SLCFF OPENING NIGHT
The 2010 Salt Lake City Film Festival is off to a great start! The Utah premiere of Cleanflix last night was a huge success. The Broadway was packed and the audience was lively and enthusiastic about the film. To my surprise, we really didn’t ruffle too many feathers. There was one couple that walked out toward the beginning, apparently offended by something, but other than that, the...
DOC THOUGHTS: 45365
From time to time, I am going to try and post some thoughts about great documentaries that I encounter.

If you love documentaries as much as I do, I think you will appreciate these posts, and if you don’t, I hope...

POST: CLEANFLIX IN UTAH
Cleanflix is finally premiering to a home town crowd as part of the 2010 Salt Lake City Film Festival. In fact, the film is the opening night selection and has three screenings this weekend. Looks like opening night will be sold out or close to it, which is great news for us because we are largely banking on some word-of-mouth campaigning to fill the other two screenings. SLCFF is a new...
ARTICLE: A COMMUNAL MISSION
Michael Moore is on a mission to save movie theaters in the age of downloads. Last week for the opening night of the Traverse City Film Festival (TCFF) he told the audience, “There’s a communal aspect to film. The way we [filmmakers] are constructing [stories] - whether you laugh or cry or [get] mad or ponder something or escape - the feeling of doing that collectively is so much different than...
POST: KICKSTARTER BEGINS
Last week, we lauched a Kickstarter campaign for Street Fighting Man. We are trying to raise 6500 bucks to help produce a preview of the film to show investors and funders. This is a great project and we need some help to get it going. All donations are handled through Kickstarter, a crowd-funding website where donors are offered rewards for backing projects like this one. For example, if you...
