Smash The Box! 10 Things I Wrote In 2013 I Think You Should Read

By Ted Hope

Working Away To Build A Better MousetrapNote: If you’d like to share this post, please use this shortened link: http://bit.ly/1cFNHfs

It’s not enough any more to think outside the box. I think we need to smash the box to bits.

We need a total systems reboot of the indie film infrastructure.  And I don’t think we can continue to wait and hope someone else is going to build it for us either.

I have been trying to help however I can help best.  Perhaps these posts can be your guide:

  1. “Say Goodbye To Bizarro World” http://bit.ly/19jleLr
  2. “How Film Biz Realities Should Change How You Make Films” http://bit.ly/1bjk8ix
  3. “Alter Your Creative And Entrepreneurial Practice” http://bit.ly/1as3LmL
  4. Best Practices For A Sustainable Creative Life” http://bit.ly/1fZTkeY
  5. “The Really Good Things In #IndieFilm Biz 2013″ http://bit.ly/1ewO8w4
  6. “The Really Bad Things In #IndieFilm Biz 2013″ http://bit.ly/18A5DN9
  7. “Five More Qualities Of Better Film” http://bit.ly/1gjyJmd – but you have to make sure to 1st read: “32 Qualities Of Better Film” http://bit.ly/1bwmr6c
  8. “15 Ways To Build A Sustainable Investor Base For Your Fims” http://bit.ly/JKytyB
  9. “I Am No Longer Going To Produce Films For My Living” http://bit.ly/JChOgz
  10. “15 Predictions For The Future Of Film Biz” http://bit.ly/18LXym8
  11. “Distribution Case Study Masterlist” http://bit.ly/1coSzrQ (Inspired by 2012′s Indie Game the Movie’s Case Study of their distributionhttp://www.indiegamethemovie.com/news/2012/10/31/indie-game-the-movie-the-case-study.html ) — but since this is not so much “written” as compiled it doesn’t really count.
  12. Brave Thinkers & Doers 2013 (IndieFilm Division)” And since, unfortunately, I hadn’t published this yet when I wrote this post, I don’t think it violates my list numbering either.  You just will have to wait for next week.

Was there something else I wrote that should be on the list? Please let me know.

    Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover someone that actually knows what they are discussing on the internet. You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people ought to read this and understand this side of the story. It’s surprising you are not more popular since you certainly possess the gift.

    Right here is the right site for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a topic that’s been written about for many years. Excellent stuff, just great!

  13. www / Dec 20 at 8:15am

    Aw, this was a really good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.

  14. www / Dec 20 at 8:15am

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something regarding this.

  15. www / Dec 20 at 8:15am

    There’s definately a lot to learn about this issue. I love all the points you have made.

  16. www / Dec 20 at 8:15am

    Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude! Thank you so much, However I am experiencing problems with your RSS. I don’t understand why I cannot subscribe to it. Is there anybody having similar RSS problems? Anyone that knows the solution will you kindly respond? Thanx!!

  17. www / Dec 20 at 8:15am

    A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you need to publish more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but usually people don’t talk about these subjects. To the next! Kind regards!!

  18. www / Dec 20 at 8:15am

    Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every day. It’s always exciting to read articles from other authors and practice a little something from other websites.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
