Producing Indie Entertainment Creatively Nude
Like other producers out there producing indie creatively nude I have a small circle of people I trust and work with well to get things done.
The words creatively nude put together to me basically means you are not worried about putting your work out there for people to see, read, and listen to.
It is tough sometimes to produce indie entertainment if you are more worried about what people will say when you have put yourself out there creatively nude.
A nice place to be is when you feel comfortable enough producing indie entertainment that you can finish your project and basically stand out there creatively nude without stressing out over imperfections and unique parts of your project.
Nothing in life is perfect or flawless. There will always be someone that can find a fault in anything produced.
With the power of the internet and social media it is much easier for people to say that sucks, as it should it be their right to piss on your creation online with their own review.
I see enough commercials on TV and online from ad agencies and public relations firms on how people should look that it makes me really think how silly it is to try to be something you are not.
I will never be over 6 feet tall and a male supermodel. No product pitched by ad agencies and public relations firms can make it so, no matter how much the try to sell me on it.
I am comfortable in my own skin as a person and an indie producer who equally loves screenwriting and directing.
To me the same thing the slick way ad agencies and public relations firms are always selling us on how we should look also holds true for producing indie entertainment.
Only change to the game is to say bullshit to it and carve out your own way through the entertainment jungle.
Producers with limited budgets that try to compete with major entertainment players with large budgets are looking for a miracle.
It is nearly impossible to compete with mainstream entertainment that has deep production budgets. Producing on an indie budget takes not having ego and being able to understand your product is not going to compete with mainstream entertainment.
There is always one or two indie movies or entertainment projects aka products a year that catch fire from nothing and go onto to do huge things in the mainstream entertainment industry.
Blair Witch Project, South Park, Paranormal Activity, Girls Gone Wild, Clerks, El Mariachi and others you can list (insert them mentally here that you know of).
This is not being negative in anyway in my mind, but for every one of those success stories there is countless other stories of producing indie entertainment that have crashed and burned to never get finished or distributed.
I like to network with different indie producers to talk shop and see what’s what on their end. We share producing entertainment war stories and information about different things from filming to distribution deals.
The theme is not to try to compete with big budget productions. At the indie level you have the freedom to take chances.
Take a shot; produce your project for viewers without worrying about what big budget productions are doing. Sounds simple, but harder lesson to learn than some producers fresh out of the gate sometimes can digest.
There are a few successful indie production companies that have carved out their name spinning titles based off major studio films. Reminds me of how old school porn always spun the name of Hollywood movies.
Only speaking from my own car, when you try to go out and be the next such and such or use other entertainment projects titles to describe your own with the BS terms meets this movie meets this movie, you are either in Hollywood or unsure of your own project.
Producing indie entertainment creatively nude is fantastic. There is no meets this meets this BS. It is creatively original. This is indie filmmaker Sid Kali typing FADE OUT
