What's cool about the EPIC Camera:
The EPIC Camera is a hugely evolutionary and perhaps revolutionary step in the digital cinema camera world. RED took the best things about their original camera - put the specs on steroids - and the body on a diet - and kept it at a very reasonable price. For a base price of around $30K without a lens you can be up and shooting (although pretty stripped down). The camera is beautifully small, expandable and elegant. Now to the big…

Submission Deadlines are In (for Sundance)
...and I have to ask: Does anyone want to make a film good enough for the Sundance Film Festival?
The better question is Can We?
I get that a portion of our filmmakers want to make small films for their film community here at home, and I say: super fantastic! We are lucky to have so many people who not only want to, but Are making(short) films right here in my hometown(if not yours). But sometimes I watch our productions…Continue

Some just play at it hoping to get lucky without really doing any hard work. That's why we see so many names come and go. How many filmmakers from SIFF of, say, 10 years ago are still working at it today? …Continue
Having some time to reflect on the recent Sacramento Film Festival we collected some thoughts we wish to share on the state of indie media today.
Before I do anything else however, I'd like to direct you to our CFF home page that contains pictures of our glorious Sacramento Film Awards party, held on board the Delta King April 29th (www.CaliforniaFilm.net). Also, see our full list of winners at our…Continue
Just wanted to give a shout out and many thanks to Deborah Whitman and Tom Pettit who helped me produce Breaking Ground for Peace, winner in the Cine Visionaries category of the Sacramento International Film Festival this year. I honestly didn't feel, going into the awards ceremony, that we'd win and so when our video was announced as the winner and I went to accept the award, I swear I had an out-of-the-body experience and inadvertently forgot to publicly acknowledge Deborah and Tom's…Continue
