Filmmaking as a community

Filmmaking is a community; its a collaboration of so many people and their hard work and efforts. In this community, you don’t just join a production to grunt through long days, and leave when its all over – your presence remains in the details of the bigger picture, literally the picture on the big screen.

For me, filmmaking is about building a new family, filled with artists, and people who love the process as much as the product. Often, these are people who I not only continue to work with, they are trusted friends.

In the spirit of community, I would like to make a shout-out to Peter and Benjamin Bratt, who just released La Mission. Its a project that Aurora and I worked on, a project that brought us together. And as we embark on our own path, creating our first feature, we cannot forget our big brothers and how they taught us the importance of respecting the process and all of the people involved in it.

Independent films, with stories like La Mission, rely on this idea of community. The more people who watch it right now, the better chance it has to come to cities all over this country. People sometimes complain that their community doesn’t get enough exposure, but we sometimes forget that we have the power to change things. Sometimes change can be as simple as buying a movie ticket.

So if you are in Southern California, the Bay Area, Dallas, or New York, please support our work, support our brothers and watch La Mission.

    At this time it appears like Expression Engine is the top blogging platform available
    right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    even realize they’re healthy.

    They are really convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for newbies.

    Could you please extend them a bit from subsequent
