Behind-the-Scenes on the Portland Indie Feature "Pretty Broken"
Behind-the-Scenes on the Portland Indie Feature
When her father goes missing during a mountaineering expedition, Lindsey Lou (Jillian Clare) sets out to find him - only, she's the least qualified candidate to do so. "Pretty Broken" follows Lindsey's journey as she struggles with the loss of her father, and deals with how life and family can be challenging (and funny). Directed by Brett Eichenberger, the film recently premiered at Newport Beach Film Festival. Read More

Content Insider #573 - Options
Content Insider #573 - Options
The content delivery folks have finally figured out the obvious. People don't want a big bundle of entertainment options. In fact they don't want options at all! Nope all you want is one option...your content. That could be tough but the more different your tastes from your neighbors, the more they're similar - musicals, comedy, drama, horror, documentary, immersive. The providers who are ahead of the game even know what you want before you do which is why you keep coming back again and again without thinking much about it. And the people in the know are ordering up more content from really good indie filmmakers in record volumes. People may not be able to describe great content but they know it when they see it and increasingly there's more really good stuff to see. Read More

Bogdan Darev, Filmmaker and VR Pioneer
It is quite baffling that the film industry continues to stubbornly offer super hero and fantasy entertainment which continue to promote division and resolution of conflict by violence. The industry fails to capitalize on cinema's inherent gift to teach, nurture and unite. I say all of this because I passionately feel that the emergence of VR allows for us to explore new uncharted territories where greed has not yet corrupted and bankrupted the spirit of innovation and expression.

Content Insider #562 - Taking Chances
Content Insider #562 - Taking Chances
I'm still trying to figure out fact from wishful thinking from the HPA Tech Retreat last week in Palm Desert, CA. It's not that easy. Why? We know a lot of EPs, DPs, DITs, editors, audio, creative people who work in the visual storytelling field. They all focus on delivering "the director's intent" to the content consumer even when that director is him or herself. They see things differently. They use the best, most advanced tools available to create something they can only see in their mind(s) and let the viewer interpret the message. Sometimes they bomb. Sometimes they hit the bullseye and people just get it. Most of the time the story works well enough to make them want to do it again. Are you willing to take those types of chances? Read More

Director David F. Sandberg Takes a DIY Approach to Filmmaking on 'Annabelle: Creation' with Blackmagic Design
Director David F. Sandberg has always had a passion for horror and sci-fi films. Though his résumé includes a variety of animation, documentary and short form drama projects, horror and sci-fi have always been the end goal. Sandberg's love of horror and DIY mentality helped spur his 2013 short film "Lights Out," which not only won the Best Director award in the Bloody Cuts Horror Challenge and went on to screen at film festivals around the world, picking up additional awards, but it also became a huge viral hit with more than 20 million views. Soon after "Lights Out," Sandberg was tapped to helm his most recent film, "Annabelle: Creation," a follow-up to 2014's hugely successful "Annabelle." Read More
