I'm not sure I should post this on S32, or if I can – in what forum (I'm not hiring anyone). As some of you know, I'm involved with a couple little local cable networks and it's become abundantly clear to me that they have no/very little worthy program content. After a few years here on S32, I've become aware of a number of new/upstart Indie Filmmakers who are stymied when it comes to screening their work without paying a fortune and gambling their hard earned money on some film festival.
It seems simple to me: I got a network with no content, you got a film with no screening – why not put 'em together? (Seems logical to me.)
I'm developing a program called the Indie Filmmaker Showcase as a prime time weekly. I'll start with a half hour slot and grow from there or trashcan the whole notion – depending on participation. What say you? I've done it before on my NW Independent Filmmaker's Showcase, but I discovered that we don't have enough filmmakers here in the NW (who weren't so ashamed of their work as not to want it screened) – I trashed it then but I'll give it one more try. There will be all sorts out there in the peanut gallery who will say that it can't be done for all manor of reasons (real & imaginary). Maybe/maybe not, but let's try...eh?
I'm looking for shorts in the 10 minute category (plus/minus a few) in almost any genre. Obviously I'm not interested in porn nor am I interested in blood & guts horror. A good thriller is fine. Situational comedy, Rom-com, fantasy, Family drama, on & on are all good. Since it's Prime time tv, I have to ask for no 'F' bombs.
So, anybody want to give it a try? Let me know.
