Tag: Entry Level

Now on IndieFlix: Entry Level and DIVERGENCE: Season One

by on Apr.24, 2014, under Projects

My independent feature Entry Level is now available on IndieFlix.

My independent feature Entry Level is now available on IndieFlix.

I’m very pleased to say that my first feature film, Entry Level, is available again for the first time anywhere–and it’s on a platform that I really love, IndieFlix. Entry Level is a comedy about starting your life over and the craziness of looking for a job. It stars D.B. Sweeney, Missi Pyle, Kurtwood Smith, Cedric Yarbrough, Lisa Ann Walter, and Taylor Negron. It won Best Feature and Best Writing awards at VisionFest and played in several other film festivals. The original distributor, Porchlight Entertainment went belly up and I’m happy to be able to share this film again. You can see its ratings from the DVD version on Netflix. People say some nice things. What’s more, the film is available for the first time in 1080P HD. I hope you’ll check out Entry Level on IndieFlix. (continue reading…)

Launching Films on VOD

by on Apr.24, 2014, under Distribution

After a lot of research, here's how I'm acteally launching my films for VOD sale.

After a lot of research, here’s how I’m acteally launching my films for VOD sale.

In my previous post on VOD for Independents 2014, I looked at how the landscape of direct VOD platforms had developed over the last year. This is an important topic to many filmmakers considering the jump to VOD sales. I have several films that I want to put in front of an audience and direct VOD seems the obvious way to go (for reasons I’ve discussed in the past few posts on the topic).

After a year of watching VOD platforms and audiences grow, I thought that this was the perfect time to get into the game and launch my best films and videos. Here I’ll share which platforms I chose and why. It was a hard decision. It’s one thing to make a table of each platform’s features and another to commit to all the work it will take to launch a film (let alone the 20+ videos that I am releasing at once, all with collateral images, synopses, etc.) (continue reading…)

Fantasy Football for Drama Nerds

by on Mar.10, 2010, under Filmmaking

Fantasy casting is a reality for almost any filmmaking.

I’ve never really understood the allure of fantasy football or baseball.  I think my friends who speak with great passion about “their” players, trades, stats, are a teensy bit bat-shit.  But that’s just me.  I’m luke warm about sports unless I’m either playing them or watching them right at that second.  However, the world of film has its own version of fantasy football: Casting.

Is the Entry Level soundtrack available?

by on Jan.27, 2010, under Questions

“I just finished watching Entry Level and loved every minute of it.  Is there a soundtrack available?  If not, do you have a list of the songs and artists from the film?  I’d love to have it.”

– Chris

Thanks, Chris.  Making Entry Level was a labor of love for me and a lot of other people, so I always like hearing from people who enjoy it.

I get asked about the soundtrack a lot.  (Possibly my #2 question in film fest Q&As…right after requests for the Pear Tartlet recipie.)  Personally, I love the music from the film and feel very lucky that we got to use it.  Amine Ramer and Alexandra Matisse, the music supervisors, found around 60 truly amazing songs from independent artists for me to choose from to help create the mood of the film.  The proposed songs for the movie are still one of my favorite playlists on my iPod.   (continue reading…)
