Jul 24

Here’s hoping everyone had a creative and productive week. Filmaka certainly did – we’re gearing up for what promises to be our busiest couple months ever. A few highlights:

DIRECTV: We are hearing that DIRECTV is “this close” to selecting the twenty finalists whose short films will be greenlit into production. The DIRECTV marketing team read and analyzed EVERY pitch and they were very impressed with everyone’s hard work and creativity.

SMOKE AND MIRRORS: Entry level winners have been announced. Congrats!

PROS AND CONS:  Jury level winners also have been announced.  These three winners move onto the final round of our feature film competition.   Congrats!

THE PARTY:   Our jury is currently reviewing the jury level entries.  Break a leg!

REED MARTIN:    Filmaka spent several hours this week interviewing author Reed Martin (The Reel Truth).   We’ll be rolling out his interview on Filmaka.com over the next several weeks.   Thanks to the nearly 100 filmmakers from all around the world – Ethiopia, Argentina, South Africa, India, just to name a few – for submitting excellent questions.   If you live in the LA area, Reed will be speaking at The Writer’s Store in Westwood Saturday, July 25 at 11:00am.

Until next time . . .
