It’s great there are several outlets these days for independent films to thrive such as:www.imdb.comfilm festivals and netflix.com. Go to www.imdb.com and they will even show you the most popular independent films for 2013. There’s one independent feature film called “Fruitvale Station” which is about the true story of Oscar, a 22-year-old Bay Area resident, who crosses paths with friends, enemies, family, and strangers on the last day of 2008. This film was acquired by The Weinstein Company for $2.5 million on January 21, 2013, two days after its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. I believe other independent films such as “The Last Straw” will have the same success, given the same opportunities and support system as this film. One of the outlets and support system that “The Last Straw” project is utilizing is Kickstarter.com. And once this project has reached it’s funding goal, production for the film will begin and it will be showcased at film festivals and will seek distribution as well.

They say that time flies when you’re having fun, well let me add that time flies when you stay busy and stay productive as well! I can’t believe that it’s 16 more days to go before “The Last Straw” campaign on Kickstarter ends. It almost seems like it was just launched a week ago. I have celebrated Fathers Day, Memorial Day, Mothers Day and several birthdays during this campaign. I have made new film contacts, picked out the film equipment needed and have chosen the actors and film locations. I will be attending the Film Fest at the BET Experience this month and the LA Film Fest this weekend. I am looking to make new contacts and enjoy myself. I have definitely enjoyed the experience and I will continue to give 1000% until the shot clock runs out. This has been as challenging as the NBA Finals between the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat. If you haven’t had the chance to see what “The Last Straw” campaign on Kickstarter is about or watch a snippet of the film, make sure read all about it and spread the word to your extended circle of friends.

 Until the next time!!!
